Skip to comments.Paladino calls gays 'dysfunctional'
Posted on 10/10/2010 4:35:29 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
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.
Good for him! And he *is* in the “mainstream.” Most people think homosexual behavior is wrong and disgusting; they just don’t say it in public.
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?

Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
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.
That’s because you’re a KansasGirl, not a New Yorker. Believe me, Paladino’s comments haven’t been acceptable in polite NY company for 50 years.
Well, he is right, but he’s not going to win in New York saying so.
News for AP. “God” is spelled with a capital G.
Hold me, I’m going to swoon.
Well, he is right, but hes not going to win in New York saying so.
I wouldn’t be too sure about that.
Homosexual marriage has lost on every statewide ballot-even in California- it has appeared on, Paladino’s views seem quite mainstream.
Finally, someone with the balls to tell the truth. For the first and only time in my life, I wish I lived in New York.
Wow - telling New Yorkers the truth - this guy has promise.
I am going to vote for him. I live here. But this really is not going to play well at all.
Such clarity is refreshing.
Hhmmmm....Paladino 2012? :o)
This is only plain and full truth...but we are no more used to hear it !!!
This mainstream they talk about is just like the not “mainstream” churches. Not so much.
I noticed that too. So did God.
I live here and this is not going to play well.
Taking a hard one in the butt or oral cavity is not normal, and if that’s a fagfest and they love it, it’s still depraved and if the pitcher/catcher is a Catholic, it’s a MORTAL SIN. If you do it and die, you go straight to Hell.
I am sure. This will not play well at all in New York. What he says is true, but it just wasn't wise to say so out loud.
Talk to any Liberal, any Democrat and they will tell you that unless you openly and loudly support every disgusting deviancy under the sun you are a ‘hater’. Or you are the comical term ‘homophobic’ lol. I have never been ‘afraid’ of a queer my entire life.
They are called ‘queer’ for a reason.
I agree. It just isn’t said or allowed to be said in NY.
I WANT TO VOTE FOR HIM!!!!
10 years ago and for thousands of years prior...this idea was held by vast majorities....
UNTIL the propaganda 24/7 on TV and in the Schools....Day of Silence and Sex Ed which is used to normalize homosexual sex....
Then, VOILA!....we see all the atheist, Darwinism young adults who worship mother earth and believe in hedonism saying it is good to be gay......
It is just slick propaganda to destroy, marginalize and make the Bible extinct—eliminate that awful Christianity—and then to destroy the Natural Family so the Marxists can raise all the dysfunctional children to be little Marxist autobots who are the State’s slaves.
This country (I’ll say it again!) is based on Natural Law Theory which condemns (and thoroughly by Founders)this unnatural, learned behavior.
It is learned and demands pederasty...that is why Ginsberg wants it legal to have sex with 12 year olds.
They are all mentally ill and their identity is perverted.
Lenin knew he would have to destroy the family unit because it created individualism (because of Christianity) and loyalty. Biology creates loyalty and Marxists can’t have that...they want the commune to be equally loved, etc.
Marx and Lenin try to subvert Natural Law...it is why the theory is a fraud and won’t work.
How refreshing to see a politician speak the truth. He has more guts than most conservative talk show hosts.
Good. About time someone said this. Needs saying in the worst way—especially in NY.
I’m gonna take the minority view on this (and probably get clobbered) but—
I like Paladino but I don’t see where his comment gets our side anything. Plus, he creates a straw man issue that, later on, can be used against other conservative candidates by the lamers in the lamestrem media. Such as:
“Mrs. Palin, do you agree with Carl Paladino that homosexuals are blah balh blah?”
The fact is, it is the province of pyschologists to determine what is dysfunctional behavior. Even if I agree with Paladino’s opinion of gays, politicians need to stick with public policy matters, especially while they are running for office and even more so while governing. The dysfunction Paladino should be focused on is the insane taxing and spending that goes on in Albany.
Many Republicans know and love a gay person. Some of the gays are in their families and don’t like their loved ones being called dysfunctional. I don’t think it’s smart politics for Paladino to be so in-your-face about it. Flame away.
What did he say that was factually wrong?
Can someone really say its not abnormal? (being 1% or so of the population, if that, would say its NOT normal)
The fact is, it is the province of pyschologists to determine what is dysfunctional behavior.
The main stream of American citizens have been putting up with the homosexual agenda for political corrections sake. The tide has turned! They have to realize that while we don’t condone that behavior, what they do in their bedroom is their business.
