RNC Chair wants Akin to 'step aside' and not come to convention

Rep. Todd Akins

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus appeared on CNN's Out Front on Monday evening and spoke to Erin Burnett about the controversial statements made by Rep. Todd Akins, Missouri Republican, regarding rape. He called for Mr. Akin, who is running for Senate against Democrat Claire McCaskill, to "step aside and let someone else run for that office." Chairman Priebus also said that he "prefer that Todd Akin do the right thing for our party and our candidates" and "not come" to the upcoming RNC Convention in Tampa. ...

His comment was disgusting and though he is forgive he should be humble enough to cease his quest fame and influence and instead renew his mind. It's as a man thinketh as why he should step down. Akins speech was neither wise or holy.

Thanks JPW. The Republicans are using this event to crucify the man. Shame on them! I pray the good Lord gives me opportuntiy to give them a sound rebuke... I need to write an editorial on this and see just how far it goes.

well, Angela, I appreciated his apology, that is a rare thing in these days, and perhaps a moment for the prolife movement to push the reset button and reevaluate some things.

Dr. Willke has written a good article on the abortifacient nature of the birth control pill.

I find this worlds more helpful than analyzing how many true rape pregnancies there are, kind of a place no one needs to tread!

Christ heals.

JPW, I think Akin's comment has been blown out of proportion by the God-haters and it would be more helpful if Christians didn't follow their lead. It is reported Todd Akin was a ruling elder at Twin Oaks Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Ballwin, Mo., has a Masters of Divinity Degree from Covenant Seminary (graduated 1984) and was a former board member of Missouri RTL.
As far as the rape info, thank you for telling us the fallacy and source of what pro-lifers have been told for years. I still want to do more research on this subject and will perhaps write something up in the near future.

"Allopathy, when used properly, refers to the conventional medical practices in use during one specific era of history. Allopathy is a historical term that is widely used "as a referent to harsh medical practices of ... [a specific] era which included bleeding, purging, vomiting and the administration of highly toxic drugs."[12] This article covers the history of allopathy as it was practiced in America from the period of the American Revolutionary War till about 1876, which marks the start of preventive medicine."

Angela --

rape is an atrocity, according to scripture.

it is a forced merging, and pregnancy should logically occur.

in the past, armies have known this and capitalized on it...

perhaps a refresher on what happened in herzogovinia?

right there in the video clip he says "doctors have said"....

"the female body has ways to shut things down"

are you kidding?

he's pushed into the public arena a subject that lowers the dignity of us all.

Dear jpw,
Please cite your source for the "evolutionary allopathic opinion based on a freudian psychiatry study" that you claim Rep. Akin listened to. I'd like to take a look at this study myself.
Thanks, Angela

his statement was tragically ignorant.

His problem was listening to an evolutionary allopathic opinion based on a freudian psychiatry study.

Seems if the same circles that produce sick studies like these, also promote sin as just simply disease and eugenics as a necessary evil, that they are not a wholesome source for the Christian.

I would rather have a leader that has healthy skepticism and lets people keep their freedoms, than one who is a Christian and is everyone's fool.

Good idea! :-) I quoted those scriptures because most people have no idea how God views these types of issues.I wonder what the GOP or the media would have said had Akins quoted scripture on rape and abortion instead of his off the cuff remark? NO POLITICIAN WOULD DARE DO THAT.

Most people also don't know just how much feminism or evangelical feminism has infiltrated the way we think about issues.

But "remember" I don't think that a Christian in "good conscious" can hold a high political office; that includes Akins. You and I disagree on that issue.

Jim, the issue of rape and abortion are two entirely different things. The definition of rape may vary from person to person, but aborting an unborn child is murder simply by definition. Some " are mine!

Deuteronomy 22:23. "If there is a girl who is a virgin engaged to a man, and another man finds her in the city and lies with her, 24. then you shall bring them both out to the gate of that city and you shall stone them to death; the girl, “because she did not cry out in the city”, and the man, because he has violated his neighbor's wife. Thus you shall purge the evil from among you. 25. "But if in the field the man finds the girl who is engaged, and the man forces her and lies with her, then only the man who lies with her shall die. 26. "But you shall do nothing to the girl; there is no sin in the girl worthy of death, for just as a man rises against his neighbor and murders him, so is this case. 27. "When he found her in the field, the “engaged girl cried out, but there was no one to save her”. 28. "If a man finds a girl who is a virgin, who is not engaged,and “seizes her” and lies with her and they are discovered, 29. then the man who lay with her shall give to the girl's father fifty shekels of silver, and she shall become his wife because he has violated her;

I agreed Jim the fact that most of American blood washed Christens are trusting the Republican Party to save America, and not praying for the peace of Jerusalem.

This whole situation reeks of good ol' American pragmatism. The guy's statements were ill-communicated and all of those who want to "save America" just want to do to him whatever will get Romney/Ryan elected. Whatever happened to principle? It's this kind of disgusting pragmatism that will keep our country in the same stinking pit it has been in for a while now. OK, so perhaps we lose the election
will Jesus not still be Lord and will His church still not prevail? Honestly, cut the guy a break and don't worry about pragmatic concerns that are more afraid of liberal media than standing courageously on principle. It's time to play the man and give the guy the benefit of the doubt...

Dear Jim, I haven't really studied the effects of rape on conception. But I have studied the GOP and their knee jerk reaction to Rep. Akin's remark and zealous attempt to throw him under the bus stinks to high heaven. Todd Akin is a Christian who attended Covenant Seminary in St. Louis, Mo. He is not some cruel crackpot the mainstream media, pro-aborts and GOP are making him out to be. His stance on abortion is Biblical from what I can tell... If someone has proof it is not, please let me know. Thanks.

You mean, Angela, you agree with Akin's comments on rape? He would be a good reason to leave the Republican party. The Republican Party, if they wanted to make a difference would be a party of law and order instead they have fallen into their old role of being whores for the plutocracy of this country.

They refuse to clean up their own house, ‘Evil’ lobbyist Jack Abramoff talk US politics (short YouTube), or the banks, Paul Ryan: ‘I Agree’ We Need To Reinstate Glass-Steagall Note who basically authored that last URL? Faith in politicians? I outgrew that as a teenager!

Ah, but my signature file for American politicians and apparently Scottish ones as well.

1 Corinthians 6
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals,
10 nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God.---NASB

This is so wicked and a good example of why I left the GOP in 2001. There really isn't a dime's difference between the two major parties.
