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. Let me clear things up.
    1. Rape is NOT the will of God.
    Now that being said, it didn’t take God by surprise where He didn’t know it happened or what does He do now. God is all knowing.
    2. If a life was created by the incident, then that life has a purpose. Now I’m prolife and always will be.
    Question is do we just abort or can God use these babies..100% yes.
    Now I’m not one to say abort if one is raped or incest impregnated, that’s up to each person. I personally don’t believe in abortion, and I would never. I’ve heard many stories where a mom kept the child and all was good. I’ve also heard where she aborted the child and I thought none the less of her. Also remember adoption is a choice too.
    This article has taken many things out of context as I figured. Again let me say this ..Rape is NOT God’s will. Did it take Him by surprise, no it didn’t. Can through these circumstances God be glorified yes, and that’s up to each who goes through the issues. Do not take that out of context because a woman or man who is raped can turn it around in being able to help others or doing things for the police or helping with new policies or something positive. It was a negative experience yes, but it can be turned around for good.
    I’d keep a baby, but that’s me. This is an area where one has to make their decision, keep or not it’s their decision. I’d never condem one who aborted a child. I understand the circumstances. It’s wrong, but that too can be turned around as a positive. I’ve seen God do miracles in that too.

  2. This is why separation of Church and State. The state needs to take care of the people of that State not debate about God, anybody’s religion etc. a crying shame that so much is coming up again to swing down on women, not protect our rights but now trying to change rights we have. Don’t even tell me that this is God’s will, or rape is or the right to make medical choices for ourselves.

  3. I wonder how they would feel if they were raped and got pregnant. Of course, only females can get pregnant so males can say this asinine shit.

  4. I don't actually pay much attention to politics( depressing), but after reading the article I think whoever created this post manipulated his words & twisted them into something much worse. He is supporter of pro-life and a democrat asked " well what about the cases of rape and conception?" then the republican responded poorly basically( in a not so clear manner) stating that God has used children from the cases of rape and that those children are still the will of God and a gift. Rape is a horrible crime that should be punished upmost by the law, but it doesn't justify abortion. It is impossible to justify one horrible wrong with another horrible wrong. That being said true rape rarely causes conception due to trauma of the event, conception can occur but it's not often in cases of rape. Even so, there are people who have been born from rape and they are still people with immeasurable worth. Not the disposable scum that society treats them as due to the actions of another. That's what the article is actually about. That politician doesn't support rape but was poorly trying to explain his support of pro-life. He needs to learn to carefully craft his words and make them more clear.

    • You accused the author of manipulation and then claim the responder being unable to craft a response properly. You then insert your own diatribe…. as if you weren’t trying to direct the reader what they must think – riiight

    • So you believe a woman, who got pregnant by being raped, should have to carry the child? Bullshit… most women cannot and will not bond with a child conceived through rape. It is a constant reminder for them and it is hell having to relive the worst night of that woman’s life!
      What the hell is wrong with y’all…. oh wait, its never happened to you before, has it? Thats why you can say some shit like that

    • I cant believe that you genuinely think that someone cant/very rare for them to get pregnant through what you describe as “true rape”. I’m guessing you have never been through the experience of being raped, I have. Thankfully I didnt get pregnant, but not down to trauma, more than likely down to the time the rape occurred in my cycle meaning the chance of getting pregnant at that point in the month was very low. April 5th 1996 when I was 14. If I had found myself to be pregnant I would have had an abortion as I could not have brought my rapists child into this world. It would not have been fair on the child or me to do that. Other victims of rape may feel differently about that, but the whole point is that I should have a choice.
      My mother was regularly raped by her father from the age of 7 till 12. Thankfully she was too young and didnt get pregnant. Back in the 1950s it might not have been possible for her to have an abortion and the chances of a child conceived through incest being born with abnormalities is very high. Potentially life threatening abnormalities. Your views say nothing in how these children and women could be supported after the births of these babies who were conceived through violent means. Do you support more funding to the care system to ensure children are fostered/adopted by loving families should the mother not be able to cope to keep them herself or does that not matter? I’ve never seen pro life campaigners talk about how they can support and sustain the children forced to be born against the mothers wishes.
      Imagine the amount of children who know they are the product of rape and how that has affected their mental health?
      I have a close friend who had an abortion due to the result of regular rape from a controlling partner. Had she had that child it would have been another way he had control over her and possibly tried to maintain contact with her, and likely may have ended up murdering her as he was extremely violent. Thankfully she was able to escape him however regularly has to renew a restraining order against him and every time he makes contact with her (which he tries to do on a very regular basis) she has to inform the police.
      For many women abortion is not a decision to take lightly, but to be able to have the choice is so important.
      Maybe you should spend some time speaking to women who have been victims of rape, speak to the people who know they were the product of rape. Probably maybe even speak to the men who might even use the excuse of it being Gods will to rape a woman especially if she gets pregnant.
      I do not wish rape on anyone, but imagine the feeling of being violated and then knowing you are continuing to be violated by having to carry that persons baby against your will. To look upon that child and regularly relive the trauma of that violation. It is not that child’s fault. They might get put into a child care system which continues to fail them and they may get abused too. There is no simple answer but to punish women by making them carry a child that is a product of rape is one of the biggest sins around.

    • I think you’re right. It does seem the author did his best to make these guys sound like monsters instead of someone fallible who worded something very poorly & stepped all over themselves. These men also know that God gave us free will, gave the rapist free will, which is an entirely different story than God santions rape. God can take any situation & use it for good, for someone. The resulting baby would be a gift to the childless couple adopting. It would take a very strong woman to raise her child born of rape. Abortion will always be a topic on which sides will never agree

    • No he didn’t need any help to say something horrifying. He was able to articulate how he feels very clearly. What’s scarier is when people try to somehow rationalize these type of disturbing views into something more acceptable.

    • I hear & understand what you’re trying to say yet the USA still has the death penalty. What is it you said before ‘using one horrible wrong to justify another horrible wrong’. Sorry but it’s the same thing… You can’t be for one thing yet against the other at the same time and the position of a majority of replubicuns is pro life AND pro death penalty. It’s a blatant contradiction…

  5. Again this is the democratic way. Take what someone says and twist it into what sounds good to them. This man obviously ahould have added a little to his explanation. Rape is not acceptable and must be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. However with the question of the justification of abortion conception due to rape does not justify the taking of an innocent life. Look at statistics. It is rare that a child is born as the result of rape. In such a case, I believe that it would be a miracle and God has something special for that child.to do. Thank you for this opportunity. I love everyone. Put your full trust in God. He will help you understand spiritual things.

  6. Someone done this to me I was 14 now going on 16 and if they do this u can might as well say this world is f*** anyways

  7. According to this POS, murder is also part of God’s divine plan.
    That means that rapists and murderers are merely instruments of god. Who elects these monsters? What is wrong with you people?

  8. His words were extremely twisted. They made it sound like he is pro rape which he is not. He is pro life. He just does not believe in abortions. Big difference. Leave it to people wanting to get a lot of views to manipulate someones words for their own benefit.

  9. It was an answer about aborting a child of rape. The unborn child. Killing him doesn’t negate the horrible crime. It further burdens the mother. I agree as far as abortion is concerned
