Rep. Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) claims that God has forgiven him for sleeping with his patients among other things.

Family-values Republican Congressman Scott DesJarlais (R-TN) claims that God has forgiven him for sleeping with multiple patients and pressuring at least one to have an abortion.

Via the Huffington Post:

Documents, from GOP Rep. Scott DesJarlais’ 2000 divorce proceedings, paint a lurid picture of a doctor who had multiple affairs with coworkers and patients — at least one of whom he prescribed pain pills for — while he was chief of staff at a local hospital.

DesJarlais was married at the time of these affairs. At the time of his first election, he claimed that he was anti-abortion, a position that he still holds.

DesJarlais insisted that he was anti-abortion. But the news that his wife had two abortions — one for medical reasons and another because the couple agreed a child was not a good idea — could call into question the sincerity of DesJarlais’ position.

Now, DesJarlais claims that God has forgiven him (how he knows is unclear) for pressuring his mistress into having an abortion and having sex with multiple patients under his care.

via Nova:

When GOP congressman Scott DesJarlais (TN) was a doctor, he had sexual relationships with his patients. Despite being a “pro-life” advocate, he pressured women in his life to have abortions, including his ex-wife, who had two abortions while they were together.

DesJarlais comes off as a real catch when describing how he helped his 'psycho' mistress receive an abortion in Atlanta.

“She said that I had her pregnant,’ DesJarlais said in evidence. ‘I never really believed it.” However, he still offered to take the young woman, who he called “a psycho” to Atlanta for an abortion.

DesJarlais said all is good because he knows for a fact that God has forgiven him.

DesJarlais proclaims that he is ‘pro-life and proud of it’, and says ‘God has forgiven me.’

Invoking God's name publicly for a self serving man to defer hate for his acts is not spiritual. It is an attempt to lessen his prison sentence.

Now I understand why atheists refer to f---ing Christians. They may actually f--k more than many of us.

Maybe he should forgive God? Looks like his head and penis were accidentally swapped...

He's an abusive narcissist who just uses his phony beliefs to excuse his incredibly self-centered behavior.

This is why normal people are fleeing Christianity in record numbers.

Lol so you speak for your imaginary friend!? You just saying he forgives you doesn't mean he would if he existed. The only thing real is the hear and now and those before you and I say you are full of fecal matter

This behaviour seems to reinforce the notion that religion is a custom made projection of a persons inner ideals. In this case, the created "god" authors permissions.

Sure, if you can make up your own rules as you go along, you can tailor your religion to meet your desires, which is essentially NO religion. This sleazebag is a liar and a phony, just like Trump. This will go down as one of the sorriest periods in American history, when people chose ignorance willfully, simply out of spite, with all the knowledge and information we have available to us. Sad

According to this guy, as long as youre a Christian you can do whatever you want.
This sounds like the type of logic a serial killer would use.
"Im against murder, but i know god forgave me for the 15 people i murdered 3 weeks ago."
