“Illness is God’s punishment” and other Idiotic statements

Western Prince William Delegate Bob Marshall (R-13th) believes that “disabled kids are God’s punishment

Seriously dude, are you for real?

Someone needs to take away whatever Bob has been smoking and then once they do that, remove him from office.

Bob believes that women who have aborted their first pregnancy are in line to receive “God’s punishment.” Bob further states that this punishment is a disabled child.

Ok someone needs to scrape me off the ceiling because this kind of nonesense makes me see red!

Are you kidding me?

What an idiot! Does this guy believe his own rhetorical bull?

Who in the world elected him to office?

And he calls himself a follower of Christ?

I think not Bob – all you are following is your own rhetoric and giving the rest of us a bad name!

I am not in any way supportive of abortion, however, to suggest that God would “punish” someone through giving them a disabled child is crazy.

Bob, have you ever met one of these special needs children? Spent time with them? Taken the time to get to know their hearts?

Of the people I have met with special needs children, I cannot imagine even one of these families believing that their special needs child is a “punishment.”

Typically, the words I hear these families use to describe their special needs child are words like: special, precious, a gift, a gift from God.

 Christ Himself, when asked the question, “Who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” said…

 “Neither this man nor his parents sinned,” said Jesus, “but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life…” (John 9.3)

Bob, when Jesus needs you to speak for him about the reasons He operates in the way that He does – I think He’ll ask you.

Until then, it’s probably best to keep your opinions to yourself.

Oh, by the way, I shared this with a couple of my Christian friends. They will not be voting for you in the next election.

But hey Bob, keep talking if you want to – you might just speak yourself right out of office.

Now wouldn’t that be a travesty. 





  1. “Ouchness.”

  2. Strong, necessary, prophetic word, Jenny. Thank you for taking the time to correct untruth with God’s word and wisdom.

    Keep truth-telling, sister!
