Christian Lawmaker: Rape Is The 'Will Of God'

Oklahoma Rep. lawmaker George Faught argues that rape is the 'will of God' while defending anti-abortion legislation.

While discussing Faught’s legislation on the House floor Rep. Regina Goodwin asked:

"At what point did you decide that that’s within your ability to decide for all women in Oklahoma?"

Faught replied:

"One of the things that I campaigned on was to protect life, and I believe life begins at conception."


At one point Rep. Cory Williams (D) asked Faught if rape is the 'will of God.'

Faught responded:

"Well, you know, if you read the Bible, there’s actually a couple circumstances where that happened. The Lord uses all circumstances. I mean, you can go down that path, but it’s a reality unfortunately."

Albert Einstein said: 

"Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity.

...And I'm not so sure about universe." 


I'm sure this great atheist meant religious people.

  1. Atheist are supposed to be smart, logical and intelligent.

    But man whoever made this article sure is an idiot.

    He no where said that rape is the will of God.

    You took words he said, turned it into your own and then put words in his mouth.

    You will then go and claim that he claimed it indirectly.

    I say absolutely NOT!! If you listen to what he is saying, he is basically saying that even though rape occurs and scripture records that it happened in ancient times as well, That God could take that horrible occurrence and turn that around to something good. He in no way indicated that God endorses rape and that rape is OK. You guys are full of bullshit

    1. 'Well, you know, if you read the Bible, there’s actually a couple circumstances where THAT HAPPENED. THE LORD USES ALL CIRCUMSTANCES. I mean, you can go down that path, but it’s a reality unfortunately.' That is fairly direct. If for you there is something full of shit of any kind, bull, deer, pig - direct your opinion at Mr. Faught, who stated just the above. God willed rape, not rape occured. It's a reality, for him.

    3. Thats exactly what I got out of it. So god allows it and uses the circumstances. An omniscienct god knows when it will happen, allows it to happen and then takes advantage of the situation in some way. Extremely absurd notion but not surprising as to the apologetic contorsionism required to justify the bible.

    4. While I agree that the creator of this thread may have read way to much into it.....the Christian god is very supportive of rape, slavery,child sex slavery and abortion. I suggest Christians start reading the Bible and complaining about needs to be complained about!

      Murder, rape, and pillage at Jabesh-gilead (Judges 21:10-24 NLT)

      So they sent twelve thousand warriors to Jabesh-gilead with orders to kill everyone there, including women and children. “This is what you are to do,” they said. “Completely destroy all the males and every woman who is not a virgin.” Among the residents of Jabesh-gilead they found four hundred young virgins who had never slept with a man, and they brought them to the camp at Shiloh in the land of Canaan.

      The Israelite assembly sent a peace delegation to the little remnant of Benjamin who were living at the rock of Rimmon. Then the men of Benjamin returned to their homes, and the four hundred women of Jabesh-gilead who were spared were given to them as wives. But there were not enough women for all of them. The people felt sorry for Benjamin because the LORD had left this gap in the tribes of Israel. So the Israelite leaders asked, “How can we find wives for the few who remain, since all the women of the tribe of Benjamin are dead? There must be heirs for the survivors so that an entire tribe of Israel will not be lost forever. But we cannot give them our own daughters in marriage because we have sworn with a solemn oath that anyone who does this will fall under God’s curse.”

  2. he refuses to state his position clearly one way or the other. He is asked a yes or no question. He could just answer yes or no. His answer isnt clear.

  4. Rape is not ok. But if a new life is conceived maybe that innocent life is gods will.

    1. So, you are saying that rape is okay, because the resulting fetus is god's will. I.e., you can't have tea different answers to the same question... i.e., if the new fetus IS GOD'S WILL, then the rape of this innocent woman must be god's will. If he has all power, he wouldn't have willed the rape, and/or, wouldn't have willed the pregnancy that resulted...

      The bible is a fantasy, and Christianity is simply an evolution op other pagan religions. E.g., the resurrection was a pagan belief long before Christianity. And hey, do you really believe that some guy got two of all if every creature on the arc, including dinosaurs and 350,000 types of bugs. You have been sold a bill of fake gooda, and these idiots are using it to control the sheep, like you...

  5. Oh. I see. It's all God's will. Guess we can all just kick back and do nothing about the injustices in the world. After, they're God's will. In that case, perhaps the religious nutjobs in the world can live by their own God's teachings and keep their noses out of other people's business.

  6. "Pro-life" people are willing to "kill" to defend their self righteous convictions. Isn't that amazing. They feel that they are fulfilling "God's" will. They believe life starts at conception, wrong; the eggs in the ovary and the sperm are "living" organisms. At one time "contraception" was an issue, but we finally got over that. "Pills and condoms" are "in".So obviously "abortion" will be acceptable in the future by society as a whole. Women will only be following another principle in the bible; it's called "free will".

    1. Justbecause he did not clearly say "rape is ok" if you have any intelligence or intellect at all (which you clearly don't) he just manipulated words for sheep like you to defend him. But for the people who have a brain..yes. He just said rape is the will of God. Therefore, it's an inexcusable justification to endorse his pro-life stance. You are ignorant.b please educate yourself. It's People like you all over this country that fuck things up.

  9. The Bible does not address abortion in either the Old or New Testaments. It was quite common during Biblical times as was "exposing" the infant...meaning putting a newborn on the roadside to die or be picked up by a passerby. Too often those who say they are pro-life only mean until the child is born. They are willing to abandon the child by not supporting financial assistance to those who need it. Notice how I was able to write all this and make my point without using profanity.

  10. Well... God raped Mary, so it must be OK...

  11. Oh hell no. This son of a bitch. I'm a democrat for reasons such as this. People like him do Christianity and God. A severe disservice. If God created women, wouldn't He want them protected? What about preserving and benefiting life after birth? People suck majorly. Unacceptable.

  12. I have not yet seen the whole video- Network Issues- but what he said, up to the point I watched, seems to be the Theology that says that God controls everything that happens in the World, or, if Ge WANTS to, therefore, if a Woman were RAPED- be it INCEST or otherwise, IT MUST BE THE WILL OF GOD.

    The jerk badgering him- doing his RIGHTFUL JOB- demanded that no exception be made for INCEST, and the BLOCKHEAD did not know what to say.

    ACCORDING TO THE LAW OF GOD, the offspring of an ILLICIT UNION and the MAN initiating it, is NOT ALLOWED TO EXIST, If it happened IN TOWN, the Woman is not allowed to exist, either.

    He should have been able to SAY that, and if the LAW cannot support that, that is how it has to go.

    He does a disservice to his Religion, by dissembling.

    His confusion is based on the Blasphemous HERESIES of the "OMNIPOTENCE," "OMNISCIENCE," and "OMNIPRESENCE" of God- which are NOT Attributes He possess, nor claimed to possess.
