Quote# 89359

MARK SCOLFORO, ASSOCIATED PRESS: Well, how would you tell a daughter or a granddaughter who, God forbid, would be the victim of a rape, to keep the child against her own will? Is that something that you would–do you have a way to explain that?

SMITH: I lived something similar to that with my own family. She chose life, and I commend her for that. She knew my views. But, fortunately for me, I didn’t have to… She chose they way I thought. No don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t rape.

SCOLFORO: Similar how?

SMITH: Uh, having a baby out of wedlock. You know.

SCOLFORO: That’s similar to rape?

SMITH: No, no, no, but… Put yourself in a father’s position, yes. I mean, it is similar. This was a–But, come back to the original–I’m pro-life, period.

Smith-you need to stop talking. Now.

@The Crimson Ghost

I disagree. I say that idiots like this should KEEP talking. They only do more damage to their own movement.

"Put yourself in a father’s position,..."

Hey Tom, did you ever think that, just maybe, ITS NOT ALL ABOUT YOU?!?

"Well, she likes babies, and it made her pregnant, so, in that respect, the rape was almost consensual."

I get the feeling that this Smith jerk inadvertently admitted to raping his wife, knocking her up & FORCING HER to have the kid!

May a horde of cloned Samus Arans blow you up...while the U.S. Women's soccer team plays "footie" with your disembodied head....which will be the only thing left intact from your disgusting carcass!

That's not similar, jackass.

Seriously, this man, who is a U.S. Senate candidate can't see the difference between rape and consensual sex outside of marriage!?

No. I had a baby out of wedlock and I also have been sexually assaulted. Guess what? IT'S NOTHING AT ALL ALIKE, YOU DUMB SCHMUCK!

This story's kinda old. That said, I found it fucking hilarious. These screwballs keep shooting themselves in the foot and we won't have to lift a finger.

Because consensual sex outside marriage is EXACTLY the same as rape ?

Nr Smith, "NO COMMENT" , use it in future.

You're dazed and confused, period.

What about this then? When someone rapes you, you'll be able to compare it to the extra marital affair that you are having and you'll see for yourself whether rape and sex outside of marriage is similar.

What a fucking moron!

In Sweden, many people have no intention of ever getting married, but they still form families and have children. The concept "out of wedlock" doesn't really exist here anymore.

I'm pro-life too; I'm against the death penalty and wars, and I think everyone has a right to a decent life, to have a living wage, to have affordable and accessible health care. I think every child born has a right to be expected, wanted and loved.

I take it this "position" is the one which you think you have ownership of your daughter's body? Guess who does, nimrod. She does.

@ Dionysus-I know; I just get sick of reading this misogynist crap sometimes. And believe me, I'm all for these groups hastening their own demise.

... come back to the original -- I'm pro-life, period.

These folks like to keep things simple.

Well, rape and having a baby ARE similar in that both usually involve a penis having been in a vagina. Remember, all fathers are motherf*ckers.

According to the bible, the rapist should have paid you 30 shekels and married your daughter.

SpukiKitty: I'm assuming these are pre-Other M Samus Arans.

But seriously fuck this asshole. First of all an act of sex doesn't become rape or like rape just because the couple in question don't have the right government papers in hand. It becomes rape when one of the parties is not consenting to it.

Put yourself in a father's position, Tom, why don't you put yourself in the woman's position. Just once, why don't you think about these issues from the perspective of someone other than yourself?

Ever notice that when Republicans have said something really stupid, they always try to end the conversation by saying "period"?

It's similar: it's not similar. Make up your mind!

Don't be so sure. I live in Pennsylvania. Outside of Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, State College and the Scranton area, the state is deeply, deeply red. A lot of voters eat this crap up.

Rape = premarital sex?!
Sorry, fuckwit, you're not even close.

But, come back to the original

In other words, "hey, when I start babbling goofy crap, don't ask me questions about it!! That's not fair!!!"
