Sometimes I am just so amused by the inane rantings of the Christian right, especially transparent con artists like Jim Bakker. On a recent show he said that “someone” had asked God why he didn’t cure cancer and God told them that he sent two scientists to do it, but both of them were aborted before they got the chance.
“I believe America is cursed if we keep murdering our babies,” Bakker said. “I believe we are doomed as a nation—whatever you think, I don’t care, because I believe God says, ‘Thou shall not kill.’ And to murder our unborn babies, I don’t believe God can look [the other way].”“This program could be an important cog to stop abortion in this country,” he added. “The thing we have done in America, we have killed our babies. We have killed the future of America. I told you the other day about a story, someone said they asked God, ‘Why haven’t we had a cure for cancer?’ And He said back, ‘I gave you two scientists that had the cure and both of them were aborted.’”
I don’t suppose you have some documentation of that conversation, do you? No, of course not. It was an act of the purest folly and naivete to bother asking. Speaking of which, I talked to God myself the other day and she said Jim Bakker was a fraud and a liar. And I have precisely the same evidence Bakker has for this conversation, so it must be true.
