Illinois Republican Candidate: Gays Responsible For Autism & Tornadoes

A Republican political candidate from Illinois believes she can still get elected to office after declaring that gay people are responsible for autism and tornadoes. It might sound like a speech from the Westboro Baptist Church, but Susanne Atanus is a congressional candidate for Illinois’ District 9. She is also now actively reaching out to gay constituents after her horrific comments and asking for their votes, declaring that they need her as much as she needs them.

However, Atnaus is unlikely to get them after refusing to back down on her statements that dementia and cancer are God’s punishments for increasing acceptance of same-sex marriage. “God is super angry,” she said. “Gay marriage is not appropriate and it doesn’t look right and it breeds AIDS.”

She is also hoping to increase her religion-fueled political platform by trying to remove the Constitutional separation of church and state. LGBT activists said there is no chance she will be receiving their support and even the Republican party has turned their back on Atanus. State Republican Party chairperson Jack Dorgan said that “her candidacy is neither supported nor endorsed by the leaders of our party and she should withdraw from the race immediately.”

Atanus said she has no intention on withdrawing and said that she needs to be put into office in order to help stop the wrath of God. “We are provoking him with abortions and same-sex marriage and civil unions,” he said. “Same-sex activity is going to increase AIDS. If it’s in our military it will weaken our military. We need to respect God.”

    Why do people insist on bringing religion into politics? it makes no sense and should not be in it.

    Why do people insist in thinking they know what is “God’s Punishment” for anything? These people are the same sort of religious idiots that DO NOT need to be identified with any political group because they are just crazy. Crazy in God’s name is still CRAZY.
