Team Rape, or God Is A Terrible Gift Giver

Abby Zimet

Stephen Colbert in top form taking on Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock - along with like-minded cohorts - who now-famously said he'd force rape victims to bear an attacker's child as a gift that "God intended." Colbert adds big breaking news: Women got the vote in 1920, and rape isn't polling well. Also, God evidently disagrees with Mourdock. From The Onion.


Bonus: Who would Jesus stab? An anti-abortion protester outside an Oregon women's clinic - which does not offer abortions - stabbed the father of a young woman whose confrontation with the protester ended with him pushing her to the ground.
