Carl Paladino says its not okay to be gay.
"There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual," the Republican gubernatorial candidate told a small Hasidic group at Khal Adas Kasho synagogue in Williamsburg today.
"That's not how god created us, and that's not the example that we should be showing our children."
Paladino, who has made his opposition to the gay marriage and "the homosexual agenda" clear, went much further yesterday, to say children "would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family" than being gay."
"And I don't want them to be brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option," he said. "It isn't."
The speech came just days after the suicide of a gay Rutgers student and an anti-gay gang attack in the Bronx.
His Democratic opponent, Andrew Cuomo, blasted the remarks as "stunning homophobia and a glaring disregard for basic equality."
A campaign spokesman said "These comments along with other views he has espoused make it clear that he is way out of the mainstream a

I like this guy. No chicken-sh*t eggshell walking.
Does the AP think we should find these comments controversial? They sound like common sense to me.

Hey Andy, remember "Vote For Cuomo, Not the Homo."
No AP, you're out of the mainstream, let's see what happens November 2nd, shall we?

He’s right, of course. I just hope he doesn’t back down or try to soft peddle it. Queers have a right to be queer. And those who don’t agree with it have a right to say its dysfunctional.
You can't make something equal that isn't equal to start with.
Two guys or two women is not the same as "man and woman".
I remember it, Argus...Andy boy’s contribution to his father’s campaign.

I love this guy.
With respect to procreation, I don’t see how anyone could argue.
It just so happens that the “mainstream” is wrong on this issue!
Where can I vote for this man.
He realize that gay is a destructive choice. Cuomo must think that HIV is a gift from Santa Claus.
I LOve this guy, no pun intended! LOL
Is he going to win? Is NY moral enough to recognize truth when it stands in front of them? Just asking.
IMHO, the 'main' stream is a very narrow and polluted channel.
Anything else, self promotion, political promotion, transfer ance of wealth via political agenda.
Faggotism is nothing but gratification, it produces nothing nor does it promote life.
