GOP Illinois Hopeful Says Dementia & Autism Are God's Punishments For LGBT Equality

Homosexuality is nowhere to be found in the Ten Commandments, yet God is so pissed off about it that he's screwing over entire generations of humans, according to a lunatic hoping to achieve political office in Illinois. 

Susanne Atnus, a Republican candidate hoping to unseat Rep. Jan Schakowsky in a district that includes part of Chicago, tells the Chicago Daily Herald that humanity is being punished by God for tolerating the LGBT community. 

The Daily Herald reports:

"I am a conservative Republican and I believe in God first," Atanus said. She 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.

"God is angry. We are provoking him with abortions and same-sex marriage and civil unions," she 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."

David Earl Williams III, another candidate in the race, took issue with the bigoted remarks from Anus (typo and it stays!). 

Williams responded that AIDS is spread by unsafe sexual practices in all people, not just homosexuals, and said that as a veteran he was offended by her comments.

"I've served with people who were gay during, 'Don't ask, don't tell' and you aren't worrying about if someone is gay or not, you're worrying about if you're going to live the next day," Williams said.

Unfortunately, Williams went on to say that he believes marriage is between a man and a woman, but added that the government should stay out of the marriage business. 

Good luck, Chicago. 




Okay first and foremost God is a loving God. Always has, always is, always will be! If you read the Bible, ask for wisdom and understanding you will find this out. God doesn't curse people. When Adam and Eve fell death and DISEASE entered the world. God will not strike anyone down with sickness because this other person or persons did such and such. He sent His only Son for everyone. I am so tired of these people using God for their own agenda and goals. Their death spewing tongues makes it evident that they haven't a clue who God truly is and what He truly stands for.

ok there is more to the ten commandments then those little sentences people keep chattering about . Those are titles i guess is the best way to put it . for the law of Moses. which covers a lot of stuff including marriage diet ect .and it does specifically mention homosexuality. And again latter in the New Testament when one of the Apostles was asked about morales . He said be even as I celibate . He was divorced and probably gay . This why men joined the church and then became monks living in caves they dug out in the mountains all over eastern Europe . Now I your going ask where did I get this.. well its all there . If its important to you research it ..Try reading the bible .  How can you say your Christian if you've never read it . Don't be lead blindly like sheep . because sooner or latter you'll be led to the slaughter .   ..... PS sorry about my typing its been 45 years., other than some texting   

Dear Ms. Susanne Atnus,

Pull your head out of your ass and get a grip on reality.

The problem here is failure to understand basic language.  Conservative is not interchangeable with theocrat. 

THAT'S a women?!?!?!

Yup stupid has reached a new level of pathetic

My nephew was diagnosed as autistic before abortion was legal and way before Gays ever thought of "coming out"!! 

My mother has dementia and she wasn't lesbian, though she felt that sexual preference was up to each individual person and they should keep it to themselves. She was a Christian woman and I don't believe that she was being punished for what other people believed or did!!

There are to many people out there who want to get into government and mind everyone's business other than their own.


Do not stoop to her level with your comments. Be better than her, not like her. I definitely disagree with what she is saying, but we will win more people over with kindness, reason, logic, and compassion. 

Calling her names does no one any good.

Why doesn't someone ask her -- and make her sit there until she answers -- why God, even if *He* were totally pissed off about abortion and homosexuality, would visit terrible things upon the innocence?  Would it not be better for that vengeful anthropomorphic God to punish the very people who have offended *Him*?  -- I mean, what with him being so all powerful and all.

Or does Ms. Atnus really find it in her heart to worship an always-vengeful, never-compassionate deity that is also wantonly cruel one, a *God* who thinks that if enough unjust pain, suffering and destruction is visited upon those not guilty of the abhorred sins, then those who escaped unscathed will reek horror and havoc on those guilty of the particular sins Ms. Atnus doesn't like.

Ms. Atnus needs to get out of politics and go spend some quality time in Sunday Schoool.

God told me that Ms. Atnus suffers from late stage syphilitic dementia.

God started punishing humans when she was born i never seen uglier woman in an out

She looks like Chris Christie' s evil twin brother;)

Looks like she has autism and dementia with a little mongoloidism thrown in to boot! Disgusting old cow!

Don't insult those with autism and dementia or Mongolism by saying that she looks like she has them.  I don't think you need to insult the cows either. 

See what stupid people inbreeding has caused.


Sharing this!!! Thank you, Instinct!!!

Bitter because who would fuck her.

Is it me or does she look lesbian ? I think she hiding something. 

Yeah, right.  This yahoo does not have a snowball's chance in Hell of unseating Jan Schakowsky.  Not only is the district that Ms. Antus running in very liberal (in addition to Chicago, it also includes liberal enclaves such as Evanston, Skokie, and Winnetka), but Rep. Schakowsky has been serving the 9th District for 5 terms and has always won with at least 2/3's of the vote.  No way can Ms. Antus unseat her.  Nor will the other guy, Mr. Williams.
