Mourdock comment sparks mixed reactions

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — On the streets of Indianapolis and over the talk radio airwaves Wednesday, some were outraged by Richard Mourdock's rape comments, but others agreed.

“Either life begins at conception or it doesn't. And if you choose one you go one way. If you choose the other, you go the other way. But I'm having a hard time understanding what the stink is. The man has believed that life begins at conception for a long time,” said WIBC radio host Greg Garrison.

"I wouldn't believe God would have his hand in anything evil. I don't either. So I find it hard to believe that that conception wouldn't come from an evil place," said a woman on Monument Circle.

“He went too far,“ said another woman.

As of 5:45 p.m. Wednesday, an unscientific WISH-TV online poll showed five percent of those who responded said they’re more likely to vote for Mourdock now. 21 percent said “less likely,” and 28 percent said they were already voting for Mourdock. 45 percent say they had already planned not to vote for him.

I have always thought he was a scumbag, ever since he wasted taxpayer dollars, to eliminate hundreds of thousands of jobs. This would have made several cities into ghost towns. Now he shows his true colors. I wouldn't vote for him to legislate HELL. Even Satan has some control over a woman getting pregnant!!
There is no news here. Mourdock made a statement, that a child could have understood. He was not implying that God condoned the rape, but that God had planned that life. Liberals use their intentional misunderstanding of the intent of the comment as an excuse to spew their poison, exactly like mooslims when they use any excuse to attack and murder. It is no secret to anyone that this nation is deeply divided, and there is no answer that will heal the divide. You just cannot reconcile those who condone the slaughter of the unborn, with those who do not.
