He said that Sprankle basically said God told Mary to "come back to his pad" while singing the now-controversial Dean Martin classic "Baby, It's Cold Outside" and telling her to "put some records on while I pour."

I saw - and debunked - this on Twitter a few days ago. Mary, in fact, consents. Reading Luke 1:26-38 describing the visitation of Mary by the angel Gabriel, who announces what is to come, Mary consents in verse 38”
In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God to a city of Galilee named Nazareth, to a virgin betrothed to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David. And the virgin's name was Mary. And he came to her and said, “Greetings, O favored one, the Lord is with you!” But she was greatly troubled at the saying, and tried to discern what sort of greeting this might be. And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there will be no end.” And Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I am a virgin?” And the angel answered her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy— the Son of God. And behold, your relative Elizabeth in her old age has also conceived a son, and this is the sixth month with her who was called barren. For nothing will be impossible with God.” And Mary said, “Behold, I am the servant of the Lord; let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her.

As a believer, I naturually would hope that others shared my faith, but I realistically understand that this is not (yet) the case. However, one thing I find REALLY disingenuous is when people who neither believe, attend church, or read and STUDY scripture, presume to lecture those who DO about what it says or does not say, to make a secular political point.
