Where do you even begin?

Sometimes I’m just left speechless. Except for the expletives.

“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children,” said Marshall, a Republican.

“In the Old Testament, the first born of every being, animal and man, was dedicated to the Lord. There’s a special punishment Christians would suggest.”

  1. “Nature takes its vengeance”??? Yes, because disability *obviously* represents retribution/violence of the natural world. And then at the end of the story the disabled person gets eaten by a giant white whale. Classic.

  2. As the Vietnamese grocer said to O-Dog in Menace II Society: “{Mr. Marshall}, I feel sorry for your mother.”

  3. This doesn’t seem like a particularly outrageous reading of the Bible to me. The Christian god has done much, much worse than disfigure unborn babies, for goodness sakes.

  4. I’m still struggling with the Old Testament pseudo-interpretation, followed immediately by the emphasis on Christianity, the product of the NEW Testament.

  5. The idea that Christ was a vengeful person who wanted to make babies suffer for their parents’ choices is sad and sick.

    What is it about these people that they think their opinions have a divine mandate?

  6. “And as Jesus passed by, he saw a man which was blind from his birth.
    And his disciples asked him, saying, Master, who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?
    Jesus answered, Neither hath this man sinned, nor his parents: but that the works of God should be made manifest in him.

    When he had thus spoken, he spat on the ground, and made clay of the spittle, and he anointed the eyes of the blind man with the clay,
    And said unto him, Go, wash in the pool of Siloam, (which is by interpretation, Sent.) He went his way therefore, and washed, and came seeing.”

    Doesn’t quite sound like the same fellow.
