One of the two Republicans vying to challenge Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL) for her seat representing the 9th District of Illinois explained to the Chicago Daily Herald that God is “angry” with the United States and has sent scourges to punish America, just because. She also claims that fighting for the middle class means ridding the nation of the stock indexes including the S&P, Dow Jones and Nasdaq in order to improve the nation’s fiscal troubles.
Susanne Athanus said, “I’m upset with us having no economy for the 99 percent. The middle class has been robbed.”
Raw Story reports, “Candidate Susanne Atanus believes that autism and forms of dementia are punishments sent by God because of the growing support for marriage equality in the country and the prevalence of abortion.
Atunus said, “I am a conservative Republican and I believe in God first.”
She told the Daily Herald that God controls the weather and tornadoes and diseases such as autism and dementia on earth as punishment for gay rights and legalized abortions.
Atunus went on to say, “God is angry. 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.”
The other candidate, David Earl Williams III, has his own set of issues. A former girlfriend filed a domestic violence protection order against the Navy veteran.
