Oklahoma State Rep. George Faught claims rape and incest are the will of God

Oklahoma state GOP Rep. George Faught stunned other lawmakers during a hearing on abortion when he declared that rape and incest are "the will of God".

The gut-wrenching statement was made during a debate on House Bill 1549, which restricts abortion, where Faught stated that, according to the Bible, women should be forced to give birth to a rapist's baby.

When pressed by other politicians, he acknowledged that to be the victim of rape or incest "may not be the best thing that ever happened in someone's life", but stood by his belief that if it happens, then it's "the will of God".

The bill, which punishes doctors who perform abortions because of a genetic disorder, passed the House following the heated debate.

Rep. Cory Williams asked Rep. George Faught, the bill’s author:

"Is rape the will of God?"

To which Faught replied:

"Well, you know, if you read the Bible, there are a couple circumstances where that happened, and the Lord uses all circumstances,"

"Is incest the will of God?" Williams asked.

"Same answer," Faught replied.

He then argued that Williams’ questions have nothing to do with the bill, to which Williams vehemently disagreed and explained why:

"You are proffering a divine intervention as the reason why you won’t do that and so I think it is very important,"

"This body wants to know — and myself personally — whether you believe rape and incest are actually the will of God?"

Faught then goes on to explain that rape and incest are God’s will because God is sovereign over everything that happens in the world, saying:

"It’s a great question to ask. And, obviously if it happens in someone’s life, it may not be the best thing that ever happened, but — so you’re saying that God is not sovereign with every activity that happens in someone’s life and can’t use anything and everything in someone’s life and I disagree with that."

The bill passed with 67 votes, meaning Doctors could face fines up to $100,000 if convicted.

More than a dozen members of the House abstained from the vote.

It now goes to the Senate for consideration.
