I’m going to presume that everyone is by now familiar with the Akin nonsense. Stunningly, both Phyllas Schlafly and Bryan Fischer from the AFA had refrained from commenting until now. There’s many terrible things in that article, but by far the worst is this gem at the end:
Fischer lamented that “everybody is gang tackling Todd Akin.” “You talk about a forcible situation, you talk about somebody being a victim of forcible assault, that would be Todd Akin,” Fischer maintained.
So, just to be clear, what Bryan Fischer is saying that, while nobody has said that rape isn’t bad (although marital rape doesn’t apparently exist) one kind of rape that is way worse than ‘forcible rape’, or ‘legitimate rape’ or ‘fraudulent rape to get abortion money’ is the kind that is currently happening to Todd Akin. So yes, again, to be clear, figurative rape = worse than rape rape. Also, the term is gangbanging.
