From WTOP:

Western Prince William Del. Bob Marshall, R-13th, says disabled children are God’s punishment to women who have aborted their first pregnancy. He made that statement last Thursday at a press conference to oppose state funding for Planned Parenthood.

“The number of children who are born subsequent to a first abortion with handicaps has increased dramatically. Why? Because when you abort the first born of any, nature takes its vengeance on the subsequent children. In the Old Testament, the first born of every being, animal and man, was dedicated to the Lord. There’s a special punishment Christians would suggest,” said Marshall, a Republican.

At the press conference, the Rev. Joe Ellison, vice president of the Council on Biblical Principles, said that when he was in college, he paid for girlfriends to get abortions. He said he still feels guilty about that today.

Ellison said he was “declaring war against Planned Parenthood.”

“We’re asking pastors to shut them down in the community. We’re asking pastors to pray them out. And we’re asking Planned Parenthood to leave our children alone,” Ellison said.

COMMENT: A teeny bit of displacement of guilt there from the reverend Ellison, I think. He's like an ex-smoker. An ex-smoker who had zero respect for women back when he was in college and still zero respect for women even now.

  1. how can anyone at all who is not a Christian be expected to take Christianity seriously with eejits like these two around, coming out with shit like this?? …

    Disabled children are GOD’S PUNISHMENT?!!! ….

    I think we should all just hide and not go out of doors from now on.

  2. I’m with Cathy – no doubt “none of the above” has just received a big boost in publicity and new members.

  3. I pray for healing, of those addicted to dumb@ss ideas (like these dorks in Delaware). And also nicotine.

  4. “There’s a special punishment Christians would suggest for ignorant asses like me.”

    There is no disablility quite like ignorance.

  5. Ellison should declare war on his brain and his penis rather than Planned Parenthood! Planned Parenthood did Ellison a favor by decreasing the number of his genes in the population.

  6. I pray for healing, of those addicted to dumb@ss ideas (like these dorks in Delaware). And also nicotine.

    JCF, just to clarify that last bit: are you “praying for healing of those addicted to nicotine”? Or are you just praying for nicotine?
