The Idaho bill’s House sponsor, state Rep. Brent Crane, R-Nampa, told legislators that the “hand of the Almighty” was at work. “His ways are higher than our ways,” Crane said. “He has the ability to take difficult, tragic, horrific circumstances and then turn them into wonderful examples.”

Right, because rape is certainly the “higher way.”

I read this aloud to my mom and dad just now. My mom’s response? “…is he saying that God is a rapist?”

Yes. 

I don’t understand.

Ugh. See. This is what give Christian a bad name, because people say things like that. I can’t even.
