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. Men can be raped as well..no pregnancy but pain, humiliation as well. No one can convince me that GOD thinks rape is good because God is sovereign over all. You and all others who think like you are abominations..

  2. Obviously his words were twisted to fit the narrative. I read his replys and they don’t say anything derogatory about women. This article is sending a wrong message. Republican is not the wrong side, it is the right. Go with your heart and facts, not based on an article that twist a man’s words.

  3. I wish there were memes on here. Id give y’all a blank stare. He never said what this writer is implying. He said, those things happened in the bible, BUT GOD turned them into good for HIS GOOD.

  4. Makes sense. After all, the Christians' God raped a young woman, impregnated her and was born of her so as to fulfill His plan so that He could grow up, preach, and get killed so as to die for our sins and thus by His sacrifice atone for all humanity and thus keep us from going to the Hell that he had sentenced us to for sinning against Him. The entire Christian myth is founded upon God raping His mother.

  5. I am a survivor of multiple rapes as well as incest. An uncle molested and raped myself, my brother and four of our female cousins (I was 2-4 years old and don’t remember much about it). Then at 7 yrs old I was brutally raped by a family friend. At 15 I was raped by a boy I had a crush on when he was walking me home from a football game. Then at 32 yrs old my 1 yr old son and I we kidnapped by his father, held against my will and repeatedly raped in front of my son while he screamed “my mommy! My mommy! My mommy” over and over again during the course of 5 days. I just can’t see this being predestined or “God’s will” in any form or fashion. I can not see God having any desire for this to happen or for none of the predators to have been punished in anyway. I don’t see God willing a lack of Justice for me when I needed and still do need it. But that’s what happened. I have a hard time making sense of this joke of a politician’s statements and I am convinced that it’s because of people like him are why I never got Justice for what I went through.

    “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Romans 8:28

    I am still waiting for God to work these horrible events in my life to the good. I pray that one day he will so that then everything will make sense and I’ll be able to accept everything for what it was and begin to move on from it and toward the rest of my life. Until then I live virtually stuck isolated in the perpetual shadow of those traumatic events. Constantly in fear, untrusting of everyone (not just men but women, law enforcement, and virtually everyone who did or would have done nothing to bring help Justice prevail for me), en guard literally 24/7, never able to let down my guard, never able to truly trust and let someone love me. Every thing negative in my life (i.e. negative feelings, negative energy, negative mood, situation, relationship, issue, and anything else negative) has something to do with those traumas that have found a way to shape and mold me and my life into an ultimately traumatic and sad and lonely existence. I wish that God would find a way to work these things that effect me so badly still, to the good, but im not so sure if that is true for everyone, even though I do love God and have accepted Jesus as my Savior. Surely my life didn’t just fall through the cracks……or maybe I did fall through the cracks……:*-(

    • I would like to talk to you. Ive never met someone or even heard of anyone going thru something thats even similar to what i went thru. You do have purpose. Its for me. Thank you. My name is monica garcia i live California and I’d really like to talk more please e mail me@ lilmunecatwin@gmail.com or my po box 281 vacaville ca 95696.

    • Wendy God has and is working it together for your good in that He is healing you in the process. That is the work, and through all that you’ve come through you are still standing and made daily to be more like Jesus. Read verse 29, not just verse 28 and read Matthew 6:24-34. Continue to use your voice to bring enlightenment and light to others. You overcome by the blood of the Lamb and your testimony. You are more than a conqueror and thanks be to God who will always cause you to triumph.

    • I’m so sorry for what you have been through prayers for peace and justice they may get by with it on earth but one day they have to stand before God and they will pay for what they have done to you

    • Wendy, unreal how many horrible things you have endured in your life. I am sorry though pity is not what you need. And no, christians do not say or believe that rape is the will of God. What we do say is it is terrible as is murder for any reason. If your son had been conceived as a result of a rape would he or you be better off if you killed him? Who are we to say this baby must die because all I can think of is the rape or rapist? Does anortion stop you from thinking of it or would it compound the misery? You have survived unspeakable things. Don’t give the power to the rapists by making yourself a prisoner. God can use even that. You may be surprised to find out you are not alone. You could help in so many ways and screw those people no those evil perverts they do not have power over you. You are still here for a reason. Follow God’s purpose for you and be free.

    • I believe the Bible to but I absolutely do not believe these horrible things are what God wants or even permits. What I do believe is that God gave us free will, and that his heart is broken by the horrible things we have done with that gift. I believe God’s heart breaks and that he weeps with us when we are wounded by the cruelty of this broken world. But he does not randomly snatch back free will each time someone misuses it. He loves us each and longs for his perfect world to be restored. I hope and will say a prayer for you that you will be able to find help, hope, counseling and healing and that God will give you insight into where to begin. I’m certain that you have not fallen through the cracks because God heeds even when a sparrow falls. You are beloved of God and I pray that even today you will find hope and a glimpse of the peace of God. May he bless you and comfort you and embrace you as your good Father, wipe away your tears and soothe the pain in your soul.

    • I am so very sorry Wendy:( Heart breaking life for one to live. Hope you learn to trust and love again. There are still good people out there.

    • Wendy, Ask God to help you to Forgive. Those negative feelings are straight from satan. Don’t give him the glory by living in the past. Go forward in your life.
      I understand,
      Sister in Christ, Irene

    • Thank you for sharing your story Wendy. I pray that justice will find its way to your life and that punishment be applied harshly to those who have traumatized your existence, including those who turned a blind eye to your pain. God speed.

    • Wendy, I am so sorry for all the abuse & injustice you & your child have suffered through.
      I have successfully reduced my feelings of trauma & many other issues using the Emotional Freedom Technique, (EFT, or Tapping, as it’s referred to.)
      You can do it yourself or find a trained practioner. You Tube has videos.
      I sincerely pray for your relief & healing from all of it.
      Suffering is never a loving God”s will, imo.

  6. This was taken completely out of context! You spun it very well to make Republicans in Oklahoma look horrible! When the facts are that we support the right that all children should have a chance to life. Let me get this straight for you- HE not the citizens of OKLAHOMA support rape or incest & you know that! Nice try.

  7. Who ever this so called pastor is may you find peace and be able to sleep at nights with his bad choice of words and putting God in the middle of this horrible act of rape. God bless and keep safe physical and mentally every victim. God bless

  8. This politician is obviously using the Bible to his own interpretation to further his sick agenda. Thst is misusing the Lord’s words. People must use discernment & spiritual guidance with regard to the word. The Bible instructs to obey the laws. That bozo wants people to believe old Testament as the final word when it definitely is not. His thinking should be challenged & mental health evaluated.

  9. I would like to talk to you Wendy. Ive never met someone or even heard of anyone going thru something thats even similar to what i went thru. You do have purpose. Its for me. Thank you. My name is monica garcia i live California and I’d really like to talk more please e mail me@ lilmunecatwin@gmail.com or my po box 281 vacaville ca 95696.

  10. Handmaids Tale? Well that guy is crazy! He needs to read his bible again cause God didnt allow these things to happen, Satan beguiled Eve which brought sin into this world, Satan uses people like this man to get his evil ways to be allowed, then God will help his children who have gone through these horrible things to bring good from them and have peace in their lives to deal with it.

  11. The man truly does NOT know God or the Scriptures! Wrong is wrong and no one can twist it to make it “right”. David’s son set out to kill his brother for raping his sister.
    I hope & pray the Sane and Humane
    Folks stand on truth. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.
    All I can say is “Come, Messiah Jesus”
