Oklahoma Republican Declares That Rape Is The ‘Will Of God’

Women should get as far away from Oklahoma as soon as possible because Christian Sharia law is about to make their lives a living hell.

If Oklahoma state GOP Rep. George Faught has his way, rape will be on the path to being legal in the state. At least that’s what rapists are hoping for after Faught made a frightening statement on the subject during a debate on House Bill 1549, which restricts abortion.

Democratic Rep. Cory Williams masterfully cornered Faught during the hearing by asking him if he believes rape and incest are the “will of God” since the legislation has no exceptions for either, meaning women would be forced to give birth to their rapist’s baby.

Faught’s reply is absolutely appalling and demonstrates once again why women should never vote for Republicans, especially Republicans who want to base our laws on the Bible.

“Well, you know, if you read the Bible, there’s actually a couple circumstances where that happened,” Faught said. “The Lord uses all circumstances. I mean, you can go down that path, but it’s a reality unfortunately.”

Faught literally just used the Bible to justify rape. And then he used it to justify incest.

“Same answer,” Faught replied. Then he argued that Williams’ questions have nothing to do with the bill. Williams vehemently disagreed and explained why.

“You are proffering a divine intervention as the reason why you won’t do that and so I think it is very important,” Williams said before demanding Faught repeat his answer again. “This body wants to know — and myself personally — whether you believe rape and incest are actually the will of God.”

Faught obliged and stated that rape and incest are God’s will because God is sovereign over all activities that happen.

“It’s a great question to ask. And, obviously if it happens in someone’s life, it may not be the best thing that ever happened, but — so you’re saying that God is not sovereign with every activity that happens in someone’s life and can’t use anything and everything in someone’s life and I disagree with that.”

Seriously.

Here’s the video via YouTube.

This is exactly the same kind of statement that Republicans like Rick Santorum and Richard Mourdock made during the 2012 Election.

“I believe and I think the right approach is to accept this horribly created — in the sense of rape — but nevertheless a gift in a very broken way, the gift of human life, and accept what God has given to you,” Santorum said during his run for the presidency. “As you know, we have to, in lots of different aspects of our life. We have horrible things happen. I can’t think of anything more horrible. But, nevertheless, we have to make the best out of a bad situation.”

“I’ve struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God,” Mourdock said during his Senate run in Indiana. “And even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”

Both of these guys think that rape is sanctioned by God and that women should appreciate the “gift” God is giving them by force. It’s disgusting and is the reason why both men lost their races.

And now Faught should be ousted from office as well.

  1. The writer sure misinterpreted his answer, he didn't say it was the will of God but that God sometimes used circumstances for his purpose.. Making something good out of bad.

    • Your reply is a great example of obfuscation. By definition God being sovereign indicates that all things fall within the grand purview of his divine will. Isaiah 45:7 is very clear, “I form the light, and create darkness; I make peace, and create evil: I the LORD do all these things.”

      There is nothing that happens within space, time, and history for which God is not the prime mover. The most extraordinary example of this is God’s declaration, spoken through the mouth of Peter, regarding Jesus death. Scripture and all orthodox commentary very clearly state that Jesus’ death was in the predetermined plan of God. Now if the death of Jesus is stated as being the will of God, who was perfectly holy, righteous, and just and not deserving of punishment, if that is within God’s will than how does rape fall outside of the divine will?

  2. The Bible us a book written by men for men. God and religion were inventions of mankind to control women.
    Before people truly understood how babies were created the only parent one could ever be sure if was the mother. Men did not want to waste their resources on another man’s child, therefore rules controlling women had to be implemented. That might have worked then but it is Bulkshit now. Looks like castration will truly be the only punishment a rapist will understand!
    I think we need to put the Bible on trial. Old and New Testament. Show me one place in the constitution where belief in God and Christianity are mandatory. No fecking where!
    Get your church and your God out of my Country!

  3. For those blindly believing that this man knows the bible, I only have one thing to say to you. You are as much of a nit wit as Faught and the author of this article. In no way does Christianity condone rape, incest, murder, etc. Sharia Law is different and the way of Muslims. I do not know enough about that to make an educated statement. But as far as Christianity is concerned these ideas Faught belives are the will of God are absolutely sins. If you believe this idiot’s concept you are doomed to a life of ignorance.

  4. He is not saying that God condones or wants rape or incest to happen. They are both evil in the sight of God. What he is saying is that regardless of how a baby is conceived, through rape, incest, a one night stand, into a loving relationship, it’s still a life, still a baby, still innocent of any wrong doing and deserves life. God can still use that child to benefit His kingdom, to benefit mankind. If that child is allowed to be born he/she could discover a cure for cancer and no one would say, “you were conceived through rape so we can’t take your cure”.
    I know of several people who were conceived in not ideal conditions. They were given life by their birth mothers and adopted and are fantastic people today.

  5. Thou shalt not rape. Thou shalt not commit child abuse. Thou shalt not own another man. Conspicuously absent from the commandments don’t you think?

  6. Why would you want to change the context of what he said? Journalists like you are the problem.

    What's True:
    Rep. George Faught rejected the idea that God does not have sovereignty over all activities in human life, including rape and incest.

    What's False:
    Faught did not actually say that "rape and incest are God's will"; that concept was an implication of what he stated.

  7. The mixing of politics and religion will cause both to get misunderstood. Jesus told His disciples to render the things of Cesar to Cesar and the things that belong to God to God. When man goes against God's will and sins he does it out of the thoughts of his heart.The Bible teaches us to refrain from fornication and adultery. Everyone should have his/her own spouse in order to prevent from committing sin. If a person rapes an individual, he/ she does it from the abundance of the heart.(mind).In the Bile we can read about David's son raping his own sister because of the lust of the flesh. The end result was tragic. There is no justification for sin. That Is Bible! If you use the Bible as truth, you must rightly divide it according to its context.

  8. There is a DELIBERATE movement to diminish the rights of sexual assault victims going on. The law has nothing to do with the will of God. It is designed to hold people accountable for their actions. If we just let God's will take care of people, we may as well empty the prisons and let God's vengeance replace the law.

  9. This stooped non knowing REPUBLICAN is using the Old Testament to justify his position. HE really needs to read the Bible and get the true meaning of what the HELLMANS he is not talking about……but I will say
    the Bible says: 9 People accuse others falsely and send them to their death. You are filled with idol worshipers and people who do obscene things. 10 Men sleep with their fathers’ wives and force themselves on women who are menstruating. 11 Within your walls live men who commit adultery with their neighbors’ wives, who defile their daughters-in-law, or who rape their own sisters. 12 There are hired murderers, loan racketeers, and extortioners everywhere. They never even think of me and my commands, says the Sovereign Lord…..Ezekiel 22:9-12
    Now where does this say that Rape and Incest is legal?? By the name of Jesus Christ himself by the Apostolic power of the Living God I herby rebuke you and your intentions of evil among women and young girls Rep George Faught. Repent for your disobedience.

  10. I wonder if he would feel the same way about rape if he were forcefully buggered against his own will. But then, he wouldn’t have to worry about getting pregnant and having his attacker’s baby.
