Suzanne Atanus, Republican candidate for U.S. House of Representatives in Illinois, claims autism and dementia are God’s punishment for abortion and LGBT rights. Atanus claims that God is “angry” with the United States and has sent scourges like autism and dementia to punish the American people, according to a report published Jan. 22 by the Chicago Daily Herald. Atanus is seeking the Republican nomination for the 9th Congressional District in Illinois. Her opponent for theGOP nomination is David Earl Williams III, a first time candidate and U.S. Navy veteran, who says he voted for Barack Obama in 2008 but has since changed his political leanings.
If God is sending a scourge on our country I’d be more likely to see it in the scourge of our worthless politicians. They are our true punishment. Anyway, since At-anus isn’t a theologian, she’s hardly qualified to offer theological opinions. Hence, Ms At-anus- here’s your Dilly. It’s well deserved.
