Albert Mohler has fantastic commentary on the controversy surrounding recent remarks made by Senate candidate Richard Mourdock. He writes:
A closer look at Mourdock’s comments reveals that the candidate was not in any true sense calling rape “something that God intended to happen.” Everything Mourdock said in that answer flowed from his stated presupposition that life begins at conception, and that every human life is a gift from God.
Nevertheless, the liberal media went into full apoplexy, painting Richard Mourdock as a woman-hating extremist with reprehensible views on an issue as serious as rape.
Almost none of those who quoted Mourdock in making these charges used the full quotation, much less the audio of its delivery in the debate. The full quote reveals that the candidate was affirming the full dignity of every human life, regardless of the circumstance of conception.
Mohler goes on to defend that view that all life is sacred from conception to natural death, even those lives conceived in the tragic circumstance of rape. Read it here.
