I really wish guys like this would stop waving crosses around, get out my faith... and out of office.
Stupid+ Anything = Stupid2
I've realized a long time ago that people like Richard being double high authoritarians as Callie put a while back, basically use publicly held beliefs and values to support their position, regardless of what they are and how they conflict.
If the man was an atheist he would likely say "it's scientifically proven" because remember he believes a woman can shut off her reproductive functions because some think tank faked proof of it.
If he was a hardcore communist in the Soviet Union he'd say things like "rape is good for the state, because it makes more babies." or some other bullshit.
But he's in america, where christanity is the major religion, and many of the laws stem from those cultural values. Thus he uses god as a justification.
He'd be just as wrong, just as fucktarded, and we'd still want to clobber him with a crowbar.
