Alabama Lawmaker Concerned That Aborted Fetuses May Go To Hell

Republican State Senator Shadrack McGill of Alabama has trouble conceiving of the fact that we don't live in a theocracy. McGill supports the "Alabama Religious Freedom Amendment," which legalizes displaying the Ten Commandments on state property and public schools. He also supports a "personhood" bill stating that life begins at conception. One of McGill's reasons for denying women's constitutional right to choose is his concern about the afterlife of the aborted fetus:

“Just based on the Scripture alone, the Psalm that talks about God knowing us before he placed us in our mother’s womb, is enough for me to know that that is a life inside of a mother,” said McGill, R-Macedonia.

“So my question concerning aborted babies is, where do they go, heaven or hell? I just want to know what [people’s] perspective is.”

Holy crap, do these people stay up late at night thinking this stuff up?

Obviously that is a rhetorical question, but if Shadrack desires an answer he should ask his God, not the common folk.

It is my understanding that God converses regularly with Republicans, especially those from Alabama.

Having a name like Shadrack can't hurt. God might confuse him with that other guy - Shadrach, the one that got tossed into the barbecue pit.

Oh, penguin poop! I bet I'm going straight to hell for this. Oh, well!

Jon, during the Republican primary, Cain, Santorum and Bachmann thought that God was conversing with them, specifically telling them to run for president:

Hmmmm...proof positive that "God" has a sense of humor, or a sign of a mental disorder?

I'll go with mental disorder since hearing voices is considered by psychiatry as an auditory hallucination and as a symptom of conditions such as schizophrenic disorders, manic depression and psychosis. The orthodox treatment is with major tranquillisers.

None of these people should be allowed to own firearms.

Have a great weekend, Jeff, and try to stay warm.
