Quote of the Day

[Trigger warning.]

"You know, I'm a Christian, and I believe that God has a plan and a purpose for each one of our lives and that he can intercede in all kinds of situations and we need to have a little faith in many things."—Nevada GOP Senate candidate Sharron Angle, explaining why she opposes abortion even in cases of rape and/or incest.

Yes, making laws to ensure no one interferes with "God's plan" is a terrific idea. I eagerly await Candidate Angle's proposal to criminalize hospitals and medicine.

As an aside, if an anthropomorphic god with a "plan" for every human being existed, and Angle's version of that god were accurate, and that god actively used rape as a way to execute parts of its "plan," then I would seek commune with that god strictly for the purpose of rejecting it outright, strongly preferring on principle an eternal consignment to hellfire than even inadvertently conveying an infinitesimal moment of confusion as to my position.
