Who the hell are you to deem a person unworthy to live just because of the circumstances surrounding their conception?

Most women who abort after rape have stated that they can cope with the rape. It was the abortion that they’ll never get over. Abortion is murder. Get a clue.

I haven't judged anyone in this situation. You have. You are the one playing god with someone else's life, not me.

And the kind of society you come from also treats rape victims as second class citizens as well. Why do you think women are ashamed to admit to having been raped? It is folks like you.

The villain in this case is the rapist. Everyone else is a victim. But you would victimize the victim.

God has a habit of calling and using the unlikely: Noah was a drunk, Abraham was too old, Jacob was a liar, Leah was ugly, Joseph was abused, Moses had a stuttering problem, Gideon was afraid, Samson was a womanizer, Rahab was a prostitute, David was an adulterer and a murderer, Elijah was suicidal, Jonah ran from God, Naomi was a widow, Job went bankrupt, Peter denied, the Disciples fled, Martha worried, the Samaritan woman was divorced, Zacchesus was too small and Lazarus was dead!

Thank you for posting. That is a GREAT summation of the "flawed" people God has used down through history!

One of my favorites that you did not list is King Nebuchadnezer; an ungodly king who came to true repetence and was restored to the throne by God.

43”For there is no good tree which produces bad fruit, nor, on the other hand, a bad tree which produces good fruit. 44”For each tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they pick grapes from a briar bush. 45”The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart. Luke 6:43-45

Lying, Cheating, hatred, doing the work of the wicked, etc.

Yeah we do have the right.

Agree. I say this as a Christian.

Neither Cruz nor Trump are particularly palatable right now. But if one is going to campaign as Mr. Evangelical, then he had better walk the walk.

Cruz hasn’t. Therefore he and the other guy are on relatively even playing field when it comes to unethical behavior. The sole differentiator left is entrepreneurial and business experience, which is what the country needs right now. Trump win.

And the Christian woman who wrote the letter to the editor needs to articulate her argument better. This was bad. Embarrassing, really.

Does your concept of absolutism apply to the Yazidi Christian women, the Baka Haram’s captive girls, or other women held as sex slaves and gang-raped daily by their captors? Reprehensible, indeed.

To: mrpotatohead have proof he gave nothing to charity? Just because it’s not on a tax return doesn’t mean diddly.

Cruz all but admitted it back in Iowa. Cruz family made millions. Gave basically nothing to charity. Cruz family values indeed. You worship a false prophet of principled conservatism.

“In the case of violent rape, I think it is the violated woman’s choice, not yours or mine.”

But only in violent rape, Whoopi? No matter how the conception happened, it’s a child. There is no choice. There’s only a child.

Are you going to pay for day care for the child and its rearing expenses while the mother gets to continue her college education or other things to prepare her for the long life ahead of her and relocating her so that she does not bear the moral opprobrium or plain revulsion such women face for being rape victims.

Oh that would be socialism wouldn't. We believe in personal responsibility and the woman who is raped must bear her responsibility.

I am actually ok with society bailing out these victims of your sad sadistic moralizing except in those rare instance where the perp is a multi-millinaire whose property can be confiscated to make restitution.

That's why I went from a supporter of Cruz (sent $$$) to voting for Trump.

Cruz has a habit is twisting Trump's wprds and changing his message. I didn't like the dishonesty of it. I can't stand to listen to Cruz now!

Well I think we have discovered that in the view of these folks there are no morally ambiguous situations.

I guess these folks never heard of Socrates, but they know everything.

So I have a question. If one is a moral absolutist, does one support the candidate who espouses moral absolutism, even though he is a proven hypocrite, or does one go with someone with more wisdom about the nature of man and the human condition and who has a certain degree of what others of us were taught was an important part of being a Christian - charity.

Indeed, which is more important, moral absolutism or Christian charity [Christ gave us a hint with the parable of the adultress], but maybe we are allowed to ignore that part of Christ's teachings while we revert to our Old Testiment god.

Anyone who is truly a Believer, and a small government, Constitutional Conservative, would not be falling for Donald’s shtick. We’ve gone from electing a community agitator, to considering a progressive reality TV star as a viable candidate. God help America.

Yes, it wasn’t perfectly written, but she got her points across just fine, even if I did grimace a little as I read it. I appreciate the effort she made. She might be real young (I was thinking) and this is what today’s high schools and colleges turn out, which isn’t her fault. She tried. That was good, not bad. Wasn’t “embarrassing” to me. Most of my adult grandkids couldn’t have said it much better.

cRuz campaign announced they’re focusing on Indiana to clear path for Kasich in NM and OR

Talk about “shtick”....cRuz has been trying to fool conservatives for months/years, now. Now is not the time to elect another Harvard lawyer, Junior Senator with sealed records/mysterious past...and no experience except living off of the government and being a member of the Uniparty.

I’ll take the American patriot job creator, who’s actually covered a payroll for thousands, worldwide, produced jobs and signed the FRONT of the check.

Your Shtick Boy is now toast.
