To National Republican Campaign Committee:

"It is dangerous to allow Congressional candidates to condone marital rape, which is a very serious instance of domestic violence. We are calling on you to denounce Richard Black's comments and demand that he apologize."

I can honestly say that this man is a brute. He needs to crawl back in his hole. Definitely signed. Thank you, Angelika for this.

Not sure if apologizing would suffice, - imagine him in Congress!

A few notes on Mr Black here:
Black is a retired military prosecutor who thinks military rape is "as predictable as human nature." He once told a newspaper, "Think of yourself at 25,... Wouldn't you love to have a group of 19-year-old girls under your control, day in, day out?"
Black is opposed to emergency contraception, calling it "baby pesticide."
He has repeatedly introduced legislation requiring women younger than 18 to provide a notarized note from a parent before having an abortion. He even said that abortion is more evil than slavery.

Done! Thanks, Angie. Funny that Richard Black is so completely resistible - even if he were wearing a nighty.

I'm pretty sure that his attitude could be changed very quickly with just the use of a gelding hook or those rubber bands they put on lamb's testicles so they fall off. I understand that castration is survivable which is more than can be said for stupidity, just check out the Darwin awards.

Well if you marry a woman don't you own her? Sorry but that is just exactly where a lot of this crap comes from along with the Judeo-Christian-Islamic crap about women being evil, Eve and the Serpent, they way they dress. The only cure for stupid is....

The man is a putz. I hope he isn't married because I would feel sorry for his wife if she ever said she wasn't in the mood. Louise may have an idea but men can use other things to rape with besides their penises. It is an act of violence and power so a penis isn't necessarily necessary.

Thank you, Angelika.

There doesn't seem to any end to this, does there? legitimate rape", "a woman's body has a way of shutting the whole thing down", sleeping in a nightie justifies rape and on and on. Maybe we should start running these guys' DNA against CODIS.

His wife's name is Barbara. I hope someone interviews her.

Rape is rape!!! No matter what any idiot says, if a woman says no, it is rape if the male continues even if it is his wife.
