INDIANAPOLIS -

Republican Senate candidate Richard Mourdock's comments about pregnancy resulting from rape being God's intention is now the subject of a full page ad Thursday in the Indy Star.

Hustler magazine publisher Larry Flynt is offering Mourdock a million dollars if he can provide "proof" to substantiate a controversial statement he made in last week's debate.

Flynt has a history of targeting politicians with such offers. Mourdock's campaign and his opponent democrat Joe Donnelly's campaign both declined to comment about the offer.

This is the text of the ad:

"I am offering you $1 million in cash, to be deposited in any bank you designate in the United States, Cayman Islands or Switzerland, for proof to substantiate your statement on Tuesday, October 23, 2012, that 'even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happen.'

"Please be kind enough to verify your claim for a wondering nation. I will 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.

"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."
