    Oh, Lynn. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for writing this piece. (Would it be too much if I start mailing a copy of this to all the local churches right now? Maybe?) I think you hit the nail on the head when you say that they think it shouldn’t have to be said, and if you suggest otherwise you’re insulting their character.

    It’s like how my mom reacted when a doctor said that my sister and I needed to get the HPV vaccine. She said, “You don’t know my kids! We’re upstanding, moral people!”

      That’s a grand idea, start mailings of this to churches and televangelists everywhere.

    Their silence on the subject does their speaking for them. They know they are in the wrong, so their only level of rhetoric is to threaten, curse, and shame. The conservative Christian leaders, by remaining silent, are purposely blocking a meaningful dialogue on rape and what it truly is. It is a sociocultural equivalent of a political filibuster.

    Hear, hear! What a wonderful commentary! This is definitely a message that should be shared, and I like the way it is phrased.

    Dear Lynn,

    Because we don’t care.

    Sincerely,
    Conservative Christian Leaders

    Because rape babies are awesome! Did you know that you can’t tell the difference between a rape fetus and one not conceived in rape? Say what? What about the . . . woman? Um, what woman? I can’t tell all these women apart, so it doesn’t really matter. Anyway, I know rape baby moms really did want them all along and will be great parents! Rainbow glitter and unicorn farts will abound!

    And they all lived happily ever after.

    The End.

    (and there you have in a nutshell the fundamentalist conservatives’ position on rape)

    Thanks for writing this….I posted this on my FB page….I have some “hypoChristians” who cherry pick biblical passages to justify their political agenda. Their silence is loud!!

    Hey, the Wholly Babble condones rape, so why on earth would any fundy condemn it?
