GOP Candidate For Congress: Tornadoes And Autism God’s Punishment For Gay Marriage

A Republican candidate for the U.S. Congress says that disease and dangerous weather events are the result of an “angry” God who is punishing America. Susanne Atanus is on her third run for Congress. She is opposing long-time Democratic U.S. Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky of Illinois.

“God is angry,” Atanus says. “We are provoking him with abortions and same-sex marriage and civil unions. Same-sex activity is going to increase AIDS. If it’s in our military it will weaken our military. We need to respect God.”

Atanus made her remarks during an interview with Daily Herald editorial board.

“Abortions should not be used for birth control,” Atanus also said. “I am a conservative Republican and I believe in God first.”

The Herald adds Atanus “said she believes God controls the weather and has put tornadoes and diseases such as autism and dementia on earth as punishment for gay rights and legalized abortions.”

Atanus is reportedly a member of the Holy Apostolic Catholic Assyrian Church of the East.

If you’re finding all this offensive, imagine how her Republican opponent, whom she will face in a Republican primary, must feel.

Actually, you don’t have to.

Watch Atanus’ Republican challenger, David Earl Williams — himself with exceptionally strong liabilities — react to her increasingly ridiculous comments.

How does she explain the cases of autism and the tornadoes that occurred in the many long years before the modern gay rights movement?

Her god must be a real shit-ass–always looking for something or someone to punish.

I bet he's not all that happy with her roots either.

thisi is standard defecation from the reversed alimentary canal of these right wing xtians.

God supposed to be about love (thy neighbor) but they have an OCD to make god a hater.

Hellfires await you, female dog in more ways then one.

Well, I think we just found a female Jerry Fallwell! btw: Autism is not a disease; it is a neurological condition. Calling it a disease is offensive.

While she was listening to the young man speak, she looks like she is going to fall asleep or just came back from a shock treatment. I don't see either of these people being voted into office. She is a nutjob and he is a GOP.

I think she should finish her transition from male to female before running her mouth.

StanJames January 23, 2014 at 9:43 pm

pls not compare her to trans people – of the 6 I know, 4 were suicidal re their gender mind vs their gender body

Whtie trash fits well for her too. The repubs with nuts like Palin, Coulter, her etc, have a hate school for women also

Its called extremist churches whose past beliefs made America the second to last nation in the sest to end slavery etc

oh dude……dont lower yourself to her level…..that is as mean as what she said

RRuinsky January 23, 2014 at 12:38 pm

I'm going to be just plain mean. I have to wonder how she offended God who apparently cursed her with bad hair and worse fashion sense. And of course a teeny tiny brain.
I mean if she believes in this unspeakably ignorant cruel omnipotent being why wouldn't she be subject to some wrath? Just as nonsensical as what she believes.

This creature looks like a dog bear. And it can speak rubbish.

StanJames January 23, 2014 at 9:45 pm

Normally I'm not petty, but here goes:

Big talk coming from someone who looks like the world's worst, laziest drag queen, honey.

The face of the guy in the left is hilarious. Btw, he's kinda hot.

Once again, a self-righteous Christian conservative knucklehead demonstrates that her interpretation of "God" is a deity who not only is a mean-spirited, Machiavellian, vindictive, micro-manager in desperate need of anger management, but also one who lacks the compassion to worry about the collateral damage done to the innocent.

Cherry-picking biblical scripture to support one's personal bigotry and hatred is as intellectually lazy as it is dishonest. If she and like-minded religious fanatics truly believe that the Bible represents the word of God, then they should follow ALL of its pronouncements literally, even those that contradict other passages.
They had better start stockpiling their stones — they'll have a whole lot of casting to do …
