This week, Indiana Senate candidate Richard Mourdock became the latest in a string of Republicans to say really, really stupid things about women while campaigning for office in 2012. In a debate with Democratic opponent Joe Donnelly, Mourdock sought to explain his abortion stance by saying that “even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that is something that God intended to happen.” Prior to that, Pennsylvania Senate candidate Tom Smith compared rape to having a baby out of wedlock, saying if you “put yourself in a father’s situation” it’s a similar kind of thing. And we all remember Missouri Senate candidate Todd Akin telling an interviewer “if it’s a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down.”

What do all these men have in common aside from the fact that they are GOP standard-bearers for the U.S. Senate? To one degree or another, they are Christian fundamentalists.

The sheer number of these types of quotes that we’ve seen in 2012 got us wondering: Who says more antiquated things about women and families, Christian fundamentalists or Islamic fundamentalists? Here are nine stupid, backward, and often misogynistic quotes from nine different Islamic fundamentalist and Christian social conservative leaders. See if you can spot which one is which.

Go to the social conservative hit piece and take the little quiz

Here's the critical difference; Number of American fundamentalist Christians who have:


Thrown acid in a girl's face because she sought an education: Zero
Amputated a girl's clitoris or otherwise mutilated her genitals in order to prevent her experiencing sexual pleasure: Zero
Murdered a female relative in order to preserve the family's honor: Zero
Raped a woman in order to force her religious conversion: Zero


Yeah, no difference there. Right...

Since when does 2 constitute a string. If this idiot wants a string, I can list probably at least 100 stupid things said by liberals.
