Akin is a Huckabee, pro-life evangelical and he and his hardcore supporters see everything through a narrow pro-life lens. To them, and despite what Akin himself now claims, he really said nothing wrong. I guarantee you that many of these people, as witnessed by some right here on FR, still believe a woman’s body magically seals itself against most pregnancy from rape. These are single issue voters who no doubt have convinced themselves that all these calls for Akin to step aside are some diabolical, satanic plot. No doubt they believe they can pray their way out of it.
How dare they presume that killing babies is somehow immoral! I'm sure that if somebody were to kill your children, just jam scissors in their heads, for the sake of getting mitt elected, you'd be fine with it, as would all politically correct, nuanced people would. You are a patriot!
The real "magic" here is fear of liberal opinion more than the fear of God, from Whom the right to life derives.
Listen Longbow, Christianity is about light and life. we are sacrificing babies, what kind of monsters does that make us?
