When Indiana GOP Senate candidate Richard Mourdock declared he opposes aborting pregnancies conceived in rape because "it is something that God intended to happen," he came under a lot of fire.

While he's apologized if he offended people for the controversial comment, he has stuck to his guns.

"You can't put the toothpaste back in the tube, you can't unring the bell," Mourdock said.

Now, Hustler publisher Larry Flynt is offering $1 million to Mourdock if the Tea Party favorite can prove his statement that “even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.”

Flynt made the offer via a full page advertisement published in the Indianapolis Star newspaper and the controversial pornographer said he would "accept for purposes of this reward any verifiable transcript of
your personal conversations with God; letters, email, text messages or videos from God, or messages addressed to you from God transmitted by any third party, including the Republican National Committee or the Romney/Ryan campaign."

Flynt also suggests that divine intervention must have happened for Mourdock to make the statements in the first place.

"I assume that you would not have made this statement unless you had been authorized by God. No one who believes in God would ever use the Almighty's name in vain. That would be blasphemy."

Flynt is only giving Mourdock until 8 p.m., Nov. 5, 2012, to submit the information in order to collect the cash.

So far, Mourdock hasn't responded to the offer.

Trolling conservative politicians is somewhat of a hobby for Flynt, who, during Bill Clinton's 1998 impeachment hearings, offered $1 million for information about politician's sex lives.

The complete ad as it appeared in the paper appears below:
