A professor at Minnesota State University has put a PC target on the Lord God saying that he is a “rapist” for creating the virgin birth to bring Jesus Christ into the world.
Dr. Eric Sprankle (Yes, his real name) took to Twitter last week to attack the Christian God.
“The virgin birth is about an all-knowing, all-powerful deity impregnating a human teen,” Sprankle wrote. “There is no definition of consent that would include that scenario. Happy Holidays.”

Firstly, it apparently didn’t occur to Mr. Sprinkles that an all-knowing, all-seeing God could know ahead of time that Mother Mary would “consent” to her unusual condition.
Still, it is just another example of liberals trying to turn everything to their political agenda.
Not everyone was amused by Sprinklie’s suggestion.
Dr. Robert Jeffress, the pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, told Fox News’s Todd Starnes that Springler is “ignorant of the Bible.”
“Dr. Sprankle’s comments are nothing but blasphemous babble from a liberal who is completely ignorant of the Bible,” Jeffries said.
Jeffress, the pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas and a Fox News contributor, said the Gospel of Luke records Mary’s hymn of praise thanking God for choosing her to give birth to the Messiah.
“Furthermore, a sovereign God doesn’t need ‘consent’ from any of us for anything He chooses to do,” Jeffress said.
The renowned pastor warned that the professor “had better pray that there is no God because if there is, his goose is cooked on Judgement Day.”
Dr. Emir Caner, the president of Truett McConnell University, also told Starnes that he is not surprised by Sprinkler’s comments.
“It comes as no surprise that a radical leftist professor with little knowledge of the Scripture would make such an imbecilic statement,” Caner told Starnes. “Welcome to the modern university system, where statements easily demonstrated as false are now mainstream.”
