(Newser) – Millionaires are sure throwing around their millions: Larry Flynt ran a full-page ad in today's Indianapolis Star offering to put his money where Richard Mourdock's mouth is. In exchange for any "verifiable transcript of your personal conversations with God," including texts, letters, or emails, that say pregnancy from rape is something He "intended", the Hustler publisher is offering $1 million. The tongue-in-cheek ad (less serious than his last plea to the GOP) also offers to deposit the cash in "any bank you designate in the United States, Cayman Islands, or Switzerland."

Flynt says he'll also accept any messages from God passed through a third party, like Mitt Romney or the Republican National Committee. He assumes that Mourdock must have something to verify his claim, because "no one who believes in God would ever use the Almighty's name in vain. That would be blasphemy." Hat tip to Buzzfeed, which has the full ad. (Read more Richard Mourdock stories.)
