Never apologize for speaking the truth.

(ThinkProgress) — A spokesperson for Rep. Todd Akin (R-MO), who last week accused liberals of having a “hatred for God,” refused to apologize for those remarks, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Akin’s communications director, Steve Taylor, told the Post-Dispatch that Akin was commenting on a difference between the two ideas: while conservatives believe rights come from God, liberals think they come from the government. Taylor said Akin was not referring to any individual’s beliefs, only the “defining principles of two political ideologies.”

And they have undeniable proof he should be groveling, like this quote from a “Unitarian Universalist” reverend. Which is one of those leftist churches that flies the gay pride flags and never refers to God with a “gender bias.”

Multiple religious leaders have fired back at Akin’s original comments. Rabbi Jim Bennett of Congregation Shaare Emeth in St. Louis:

Rev. Krista Taves, of Emerson Unitarian Universalist Chapter in St. Louis, wrote to Akin:

For you to say that liberals hate God means you know very little about liberals, and sadly enough, you also seem to know very little about God and his son Jesus, who said that ‘as you do to the least of these, you do unto me.’
