Mike Huckabee wants you to know that rape has lead to some extraordinary people, so don’t look a gift-rape in the mouth. Or something.
“Ethel Waters, for example, was the result of a forcible rape,” Huckabee said of the late American gospel singer. One-time presidential candidate Huckabee added: “I used to work for James Robison back in the 1970s, he leads a large Christian organization. He, himself, was the result of a forcible rape. And so I know it happens, and yet even from those horrible, horrible tragedies of rape, which are inexcusable and indefensible, life has come and sometimes, you know, those people are able to do extraordinary things.”
So rape does lead to pregnancy? Now I’m really confused.
It’s horrible, and inexcusable, and indefensible but, you know, god works in mysterious ways! Hallelujah!
Have a chicken sandwich with me. For Jesus.
