Archbishop says that it is OK to rape women who had an abortion

Javier Martinez, the archbishop of Grenada, Spain is in hot water after saying during his Christmas speech that it is OK to rape women who had an abortion. According to the Bishop, Hitler’s and Stalin’s acts against humanity are not as bad as a woman who had an abortion and that makes it perfectly alright for any man to abuse such a woman’s body without limitations because she committed sin as if she had the right to do that. The bishop stated that the church will not budge from its decision that abortions are a great sin against God’s will and should not be tolerated.


Pope Benedict XVI was asked to comment on the bishop’s statement but thus far the head of church has remained silent. No word on the church possibly taking sanctions against Archbishop Javier Martinez.
