• Susanne Atanus, GOP Candidate: Autism, Dementia Are God’s Punishments For Gays, Abortions

    Ack, the Republicans are at it again. Maybe she saw my post on autism meaning that God is unfair.

    As HuffPo reports:

    I am not in favor of abortions, I am not in favor of gay rights,” Atanus, who has staged two previous unsuccessful runs for Congress, said during a videotaped portion of the interview, before going into more detail with the paper.

    “God is angry. We are provoking him with abortions and same-sex marriage and civil unions,” she added, blaming natural disasters like tornadoes and diseases including autism and dementia on recent advances in the LGBT movement. “Same-sex activity is going to increase AIDS. If it’s in our military it will weaken our military. We need to respect God.”

    At least some leadership voices in the GOP are calling for her resignation. But honestly. Really?
