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 Bible is filled with ambiguities. It’s been used to justify, and to forbid, rape — same as for slavery, invasion, etc. We in 2019 must make our own moral decisions and vote men like thebone here out of office!

  2. Scripture sees rape as akin to murder, because it subtracts a woman's personhood from her and makes her an object. It is never "the will of God." That in rare instances a child of rape has been born and lived a life of good does not retroactively make rape a good idea.

    Were Jesus standing in that Oklahoma state house I'm fairly certain he would've slapped Faught and the rest of you'all upside the head. You don't understand the scripture.

  3. Free will of man that is God-given can result in evil. God has promised to make good out of all evil, as is plainly visible. God is in control. Unfortunately, not until the evils of mankind touches some will they turn and seek His face

  4. As a bible-believing Christian, I submit that this recently passed law in Oklahoma has NOTHING AT ALL to do with “legalizing” rape and incest. I believe the writer of this article has totally misinterpreted the purpose of this law, & what the Republican was trying to convey…As an advocate for life, my question would be, that, in the event that a child is conceived through rape or incest, why do we feel we are justified in punishing the CHILD for what has occurred, by killing it?? It is not the child’s fault! There is a saying, that two wrongs don’t make a right, & it is so true in this case. And, for the record, rape and incest are NEVER EVER God’s will & there is NOTHING in the Bible that sanctions it. It does say, however, that God is able to redeem every situation, meaning, that he is able to bring something good (A new life) out of it, IN SPITE OF what occurred, NOT to justify it! The fact that these awful things occur, is just EVIDENCE that there is a real presence of EVIL in the world and people always have a choice to either participate in it, or not. Those of us who are pro-choice, believe in giving women the FREEDOM to make choices that SUPPORT life and not destroy it. The TRUTH is, that abortion is NOT their ONLY choice. The TRUTH is, that these are HUMAN BEINGS that we are talking about, not just “blobs of tissue”, and any ULTRASOUND will reveal that FACT. So, why do we feel that we have the “right” to eliminate them, as a matter of “convenience”, which is why MOST, not all, abortions occur. How about we TAKE RESPONSIBILITY for the “choice” that we made when we “chose” to have sex, (with the exception of rape or incest, of course) & ADMIT that, a pregnancy could be the result of our “choice”… just a thought…
    With the EXCEPTION of abortion being a choice between the life of the mother & the life of the child, the deliberate taking of an innocent life is called murder, and cannot be justified. There are plenty of prospective parents who unable to conceive a child and would love to have a child through adoption… how about offering a young woman THIS option, rather than telling her that she has a “right” to end this child’s life, and then having to live with the guilt that comes along with it… it is not “natural” for a woman to abort her child… and there will always be a consequence… Our goal is to PREVENT this, NOT to condemn anyone who has believed the LIE that abortion was her ONLY choice… Our goal is to give her the TRUTH & the FREEDOM to choose LIFE for her baby….& for herself in the process…

  5. Unless you have been a victim of rape which I have or incest no government position has the right to take their personal perspective and put something so pathetic into law. Divine Intervention is not rape and incest. Thank God President Trump wants to make an addendum to the Bill to protect rape and incest victims. What if that was your daughter. Get your head out of your you know what and at least try to be like God…loving and protective…not evil, scorn and destructive. Rape and imcest are not about love…it is about power, and control. Therefore, you have no right to override what a rape victim has the right to decide for her choices as well as parents who”s kid is molested or any incest where she may end up pregnant.

  6. I can barely believe what I’m reading.
    He is totally taking God’s word out of context.
    Rape and incest are torturous, vial sexual acts that harms their victims for the rest of their lives.
    I have been reading of several cases of rape and the perpetrator is given probation or set free. When did this turnover of justice happen in our judicial system. It is a disgrace to our nation

  7. If this ass hats daughter was unfortunately
    Raped you can bet your ass his righteous dbag values would be out the door and he’d have an abortion the next day…fing hypocrite

  8. If rape is ok with God and it becomes legal, what is stopping our state reps from saying murder is soveirned by God. Murder will be legal?

  9. I pray for his sons and daughters! Having a devote dad like him committed to doing God's Will may be Hell for them! Just saying!

  10. Y’all are twisting this man words! And why should a innocent child lose his life over the circumstance? He is being murdered! Why can’t she just give it away?

  11. What in the world…. no way does the bible ever say that God is ok with rape.. My God never said go rape that woman or man because that will bring me joy… how dare these government officials add or twist things like this.

  12. He did not say that rape and incest is the “will of God.” He said that God is sovereign over every situation. Bottom line (and I think this is what he feels) is that a baby is still a human being, and being conceived through a sinful, violent act – doesn’t change that fact. It is a child. It is innocent! I was adopted myself and was born illigitimate but my life still has value… Right?

  13. Some Christians are wedded to an idea that can have horrible consequences. As it is said, the road to hell is paved with good intentions and this worship of the fetus becomes an end until itself where these extremists end up devaluing people who are already walking, breathing sentient beings. In other words, choosing the life of a fetus (who is not a child yet, contrary to what was said above) over the life of a young girl who was raped or a victim of incest, or choosing the fetus over the life of her mother, who might be needed alive for the sake of her other children too. So you have grotesque miscarriages of Justice: a 13-year-old girl forced to go through an entire pregnancy engulfed in shame and anguish; a young girl or woman victimized by her father, uncle or brother forced to bear the child who will bear the stigma of lifelong shame as their father is their grandfather for instance. Not only that, but enabling the genetic abnormalities that occur often in incest to pass down to future generations ought to be a crime itself. This is contaminating the gene pool and spreading unhealthy consequences. Ironically, these (mostly) male legislators have sometimes passed or tried to pass laws enabling a rapist to have paternal rights. These legislators are some sick puppies and have no business legislating laws governing ANY female body. Some of these laws have caused so much damage already: in one state, where abortion wasn’t legal until the doctor waited long enough to prove the mother was in such bad shape she would die without one, the doctor performed it too late and both mother and baby died. In another state or maybe the same one, women suspected of aborting their baby can be charged with murder as one woman was who insisted she had a miscarriage. Imagine how many women who have miscarriages would then be under suspicious on purely spurrilous grounds, like witches were when Christians used them as their shiny object to persecute. Then there is the moribund mortician Pence, who when he was Governor of Indiana, had the brilliant idea of:wow! I know what we’ll do! We’ll shame the women who have abortions by forcing them to hold a memorial service for the fetus. Luckily that got voted down, I think, but that was one of the more repulsive ideas from this sanctimonious POS who looks for all the world like a stiff. And the problem with these obnoxious, nauseating holier-than-thou Christians is that they’re the same type who would burn people at the stake for some badly shopworn idea of life and actually end up DEVALUING life out of their extremism and lack of recognition of the nuances of life and personhood, maternity and female empowerment. Not only do we have separation of church and state, so that YOUR ideas about medical decisions should not dictate what happens to MY body, it is the height of evil to use God as an excuse for doing so. If that was God’s will, such a God would be a sadist. It’s not God’s will to commit evil acts like rape or torture. Take the Bible out of legislating. That is what our Founders intended actually, as they had seen the nasty consequences of state religion in the bloodshed caused by religious strife in Europe. These people parading “God’s will” in such evil acts have no wisdom, no common sense, no empathy to force women or young girls into lifelong trauma. These are twisted people who ironically think of themselves as saintly upholders of God’s law. They want to turn this nation into “A Handmaiden’s Tale” with all it’s revolting and neurotic consequences.

  14. Republican’s and these religious nuts need put back in the hole they came from. People of religion have just lost there freakin minds. I wonder how many women will back these so ass Republican’s.

  15. Words of someone who has no idea what it is to be raped . . . Bad things happen because people allow them to happen. It takes constant diligence to keep the baser side of we "earthly folks" from ruining other people's lives. Rape is not a "Political issue". Voting Republican does not mean I approve of rape. Rapists are bullies, rapists are wanting to prove their superiority over others. Rapists choose to do immoral, illegal, mean things to others. Rapists are not always led to "rape adults". They also rape children.
