O’Donnell: AIDS Patients Not Victims, Cancer An Act Of God

September 15, 2010

U.S. (ChattahBox Political News) – We have done a lot of coverage on Christine O’Donnell, the winner of the Delaware primary, the nightmare of the GOP and the endless entertainment of blogs everywhere on the net. But every new little bit of information we glean from old interviews must make the Tea Party want to commit a head-desk move.

Her latest gem was revealed by Talking Points Memo, who quoted her in a C-SPAN interview back in 1997. Apparently money spent on fighting AIDS was wasted because encouraging condom use is pointless, and those who are infected with HIV totally bring it on themselves.

“A lot of the money that we’re spending goes to things that we know will not prevent AIDS, but indeed will continue to spread the disease. A lot of our money goes to distribute condoms in high schools, and a lot of our money goes to distribute material that is literally pornographic.”

She was promoting Savior’s Alliance For Lifting The Truth (S.A.L.T.), which is more or less an abstinence-only group. She said that there was a “there is a gross disproportionate allocation of funds”. Unlike there being a gross disproportion of evidence actually supporting abstinence-only programs realistically working?

She also made a statement about cancer being “an act of God”, and repeatedly showed herself unable to comprehend the problems leading to the spread of AIDS and other illnesses in third world countries.

You know, when you have someone who uses religion as a platform or politics you are asking for trouble. Anyone who supports this woman is an idiot.

    Don’t call someone an idiot until you proofread your poorly written article. A high school grammar teacher would have given you a C for sentence structure alone. I’m not an O’Donnell person but your article sucks. Your headline is misleading too. Idiot.

    It is disconcerting and disheartening how many voters are opting for candidates like this moron. Does not speak well for our electorate. We’ll get what we deserve.

    So the inconvenient truth today is that – she was and still is right!
    You people who making all these liberal ideas would like to assume that the whole country is with you. You are wrong just as your ideas. You are based on the fact (just like communists in USSR) that God is something that people came up with. Just when the communists in Russia assumed that, the Lord flipped the whole country and many, many souls were saved. Just when you think you are done with God in America – He will reveal Himself to many lost souls.
    Shame on you! If you truly need HOPE, see were our founding fathers got it from.
    Your HOPE and CHANGE is in the wrong place. America need to go back to its roots. Both republicans and democrats must go as they are no longer serve the people. I may not agree with O’Donnell in everything, but she looks to me as typical American citizen who is fed up with both parties and pointing us back at the foundation.

    “don” — if you were serious, you are so lost, you may be beyond help.

    Ok Don, what is she right about?

    As a Christian I suppose one could take the position that EVERYTHING is an act of God, as God is omnipotent.
