Flame-throwing Republican Carl Paladino blasted gays Sunday - saying there is "nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual."

"I don't want [children] brainwashed into thinking homosexuality is an equal valid and successful option," Paladino said during a visit with Orthodox Jewish leaders in Brooklyn's Williamsburg.

Paladino, who is running for governor, told the conservative Jewish leaders he would veto a gay marriage bill if it's passed by the Legislature.

Paladino drew a distinction between himself and Democratic rival Andrew Cuomo, saying he boycotted the gay pride parade while Cuomo marched.

"I didn't march in the Gay Pride parade this year. My opponent did. There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual. That's not how God created us, and that's not the example that we should be showing our children - and certainly not in our schools," Paladino said.

He went on to zing Cuomo for allowing his daughters to also march in the gay parade.
"My opponent took his daughters to march in a homosexual parade," Paladino scoffed.

Asked whether such comments are appropriate given Saturday's stunning charge that nine members of a sadistic Bronx gang tortured a gay man and two gay teens, Paladino said he does not support gay bashing.
"Don't misquote me as wanting to hurt homosexual people in any way. That would be a dastardly lie. My approach is live and let live," Paladino said.

Cuomo spokesman Josh Vlasto ripped Paladino as a homophobe "unfit to represent New York."
"Mr. Paladino's statement displays a stunning homophobia and a glaring disregard for basic equality," Vlasto said.

He said the comments "along with other views he has espoused make it clear that he is way out of the mainstream and is unfit to represent New York."

His opponent is Andrew Cuomo, Mario Cuomo's son.

Usually I'm against violence, but if someone punched this douchebag in his bigoted nasty mouth, I don't think I'd object too much.

Oh, go fuck yourself (or your horse, since that's apparently your thing), Paladino.

Ugh. WTF is wrong this guy?

I'm glad his opponent took his daughters to a gay pride parade! That's awesome and I really hope that guy wins.

Don't misquote me as wanting to hurt homosexual people in any way.

Except for calling them dysfunctional and keeping them from having full marriage rights and implying they should be kept away from kids. Other than THAT ...

Seriously. If by "in any way" you mean, "physically", then uh... you're still a douchebag, sir.

Aaand another example of why no matter how much concern I have about various Democratic candidates the Republican candidates usually manage to provide stellar demonstrations of why they're worse.

But he works in construction, he had to send those emails!

And this is why there will be another Cuomo in the NY Gov's mansion come around November.

That's not how God created us

Except, well, gay folks exist. Soooo~ I guess you're wrong?
popehippo 10th-Oct-2010 11:26 pm (UTC)
Seriously, this argument is LOL worthy. If God created all things to be perfect, then gays are perfect. But... if gays are NOT perfect, then God fucked something up and is NOT infallible.

What does God have to do with anything? I was under the impression we didn't live in a theocracy.

I suggest we send Betty White to deal with that douche...

I am convinced that he and Sharron Angle are having a race to see who can be the tea party's most inhumane candidate.

oh so you're one of the ~*GOOD HOMOPHOBES*~ since you won't physically hurt them, but will emotionally hurt them.
apocalypsos 11th-Oct-2010 12:31 am (UTC)
Exactly. They don't want gay people to hurt physically -- just emotionally, mentally, financially, and eternally in the fiery depths of Hell.
