Todd Akin: “legitimate rape” = science; evolution = theology

“I don’t see it as even a matter of science because I don’t know that you can prove one or the other. That’s one of those things. We can talk about theology and all of those other things but I’m basically concerned about, you’ve got a choice between Claire McCaskill and myself. My job is to make the thing there. If we want to do theoretical stuff, we can do that, but I think I better stay on topic.”

Oh Todd Akin… me thinks you do not know the meaning of science. Most have gotten his science education at Tee-Tee University.

One thought on “Todd Akin: “legitimate rape” = science; evolution = theology

  1. He must know what he is talking about, seeing as he is on the House Science and Technology Committee. No, he is afraid, afraid that his tether to a meaningful and caring world will be destroyed. He is ready to take his stand and fight against this evil. The evidence makes no difference to him.
