Holy God Can Anyone Be This Ignorant?

Every once in a while, someone says something so stupid, so offensive, that I hesitate to quote it. The possibility is that an opponent might be deliberately misstating what was said. I have checked this. Not only did this idiot say this, his pathetic attempt to, "clarify" does not back off the stupidity. Rather it is a classic,"I am sorry you are offended. Yeah, I am.

I am offended because there is no data I can find, and none this idiot referenced, to support this claim. I am offended because he lied. I am offended because he miss-represents the loving God I worship as some sort of vicious monster. I am offended because by any reasonable definition, this "Christian" is committing blasphemy and no one can arrange an appropriate stoning! He actually said this: it is available on the web from half a dozen solid news sites:
"The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children,” said Marshall, a Republican.
“In the Old Testament, the first born of every being, animal and man, was dedicated to the Lord. There’s a special punishment Christians would suggest.”
Really? Does God of whom Christians proclaim, "God is Love" run around condemning innocent children? Really, has this idiot missed the story of Jesus's response to the pharisees who confronted him with a blind person, and who healed a number of other "disabled" people?

In fact, if anything, Jesus's ministry with its focus on the poor and and on healing would suggest that something, be it, "Obamacare" or another system is a Christian duty. That is precisely the logic (as opposed to this offensive dishonesty) by which the "Christian Democrats" in many European countries came to national health care systems. I suppose in theory, a system that is not run by the government could serve, I am not arguing for any particular system here. Merely for some decent respect for what Jesus actually said and did. This lying crap is the grist for Dawkin's mill.
