VA GOP Candidate: Disabled Children God's Punishment For Abortion

State Congressional candidate Bob Marshall is adamant that disabled children are a form of punishment.

My Lord, when will these freaks just fade away already?

Brian Tashman:

Virginia GOP state delegate and congressional candidate Bob Marshall is standing by his claim that disabled children are God’s punishment for women who have an abortion.

“Nature takes its vengeance on subsequent children,” Marshall said in 2010. “It’s a special punishment, Christians would suggest.”

Yesterday, Marshall insisted that he won’t be backing away from the comment as he campaigns for the House, and is similarly defending his suggestions that Justice Anthony Kennedy is secretly gay and that abortion should be banned in cases of incest because it could be “voluntary.”

Delegate Robert G. Marshall has said that disabled children can be God’s vengeance against women who have had abortions. He has described incest as sometimes voluntary, and he has questioned the sexuality of a Supreme Court justice who has favored marriage equality.

“For all I know, Kennedy’s a homosexual,” he said. “You can’t be doing some of these things without this kind of conclusion.”

Like many of his other comments, Mr. Marshall stands by it.

“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion who have handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the firstborn of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children,” Mr. Marshall said. -

Hey ladies, it's not only the Good Lord that's watching you, but so is nature. And it knows what you're doing to yourselves so beware. I'm not sure why he threw in some gay bashing, but I imagine to this neanderthal every day is a good to to bash some gays.

The sickness of the religious right community is striking. I know so many great people who believe in God, but would never reside in the depths of such putrid thoughts.
