Letter to Senator Hank Erwin and Representative Nick Williams on Their Rapist Rights Bills

I've emailed the above "servants of the people" of Alabama in regards to their rapist rights legislation. Feel free to do your own. Here's what I've sent Senator Erwin and Representative Williams, copied to John Giles at the Alabama Christian Coalition:

Dear Senator Hank Erwin and Representative Nick Williams,

I noted today that you two servants of God have each introduced a rapist rights bill in the Alabama Legislature. Senator Erwin, as a graduate of Southwestern College and Dallas Theological Seminary, and Representative Williams, as a graduate of Rhema Bible Training Center, I suppose you both believe in the inerrancy of God’s word.

Since you consider a woman’s womb as merely a vessel to carry a child to term, I wondered when you stand on the eminent domain legislation that seems to be an issue across the Red States. I guess obtaining ownership of a woman’s uterus is hardly the same as the government taking ownership of real estate. God’s Favorite Theocrat Roy Moore clearly thinks it inappropriate to have the State take private land for public purposes, even when the land is paid for at often above market prices. Perhaps you could suggest fair compensation for women that are required to serve as the state’s property as they carry rapist children to full term?

I also wondered when you’d be introducing legislation requiring the stoning of ornery children (Deuteronomy 21: 18-21) or punishment for those that plant two different crops in the same field or wear blended fibered clothing (Leviticus 19: 19)?

Thanks for your service as God’s messengers and arbiters of our morality here on earth. Until the Rapture, I remain sincerely, Captain Plaid

I'm wondering how this fall's state election will fall out given this on the table yet I know the real work is at the national level. Stripsearch Sammy might not be enough yet this next slot on the Supreme Court is critical. Peace ... or War!
