Posted on 10/11/2010 10:41:40 AM PDT by Conservative Coulter Fan
Republican Carl Paladino, a tea party candidate for governor of New York, said Monday on NBC's "Today" show that he doesn't discriminate against homosexuals. On Sunday, in a discussion of gay marriage at a meeting with Brooklyn Hasidic Jewish leaders, Paladino said children were being "brainwashed" into accepting homosexuality as "valid."

I’ve never understood what they’re so “proud” about.
This thread will be nauseating with pictures.
Paladino is absolutely right. I hope he doesn’t back off or adopt a defensive mode. If New Yorkers in the main don’t want to vote for him because of those comments, they deserve the state they get.
Cat Pounce PING
“those Gay Pride events are sickening and vulgar...”
They seem calculated to generate disgust and revulsion. My theory is that these particular individuals are self-loathing and consequently self-destructive.
Wow, this Paladino guy has guts. Even if he doesn’t win - maybe NY Repubs will grow spines for future elections.
How can anyone advocate a life style that literally takes decades off a man's life?
Finally, some pushback actually FOR children and young people.
Liberals have been loving them to DEATH for 40 years!
What he said is what the majority of Americans believe about the homosexual community. When will the liberal elite face the facts that they’re out of touch with America?
Male homosexuality reduces the lifespan by about 10x the reduction of being a heavy cigarette smoker.
So which behavior has become unacceptable, even being edited digitally out of old movies?
With powers of position in education, media, and the psychiatry profession, they can declare it to be the new normal. It is heresy to not accept their faith.
DON'T drink and drive.
DON'T ride a bike without a helmet.
DON'T smoke, or do drugs.
DON'T play soccer without your knee pads.
DON'T get pregnant, or get a STD.
DO tell your friends at middle school and high school, that you think you are a homosexual, a lesbian, a bi-sexual, or a trans-gender.
And then tell your parents, listen to Lady Ga Ga, call MTV, and the “Ellen” show because they may put you on the air.
Of course, then you will have to call “Dr. Phil”, Larry King, and Kathy Gifford because you are being bullied, and thinking about suicide.
Paladino’s openly homosexual nephew works on his campaign. Paladino loves him. You can disagree with the homosexual agenda and lifestyle and still love the person. This man is proof of that.
Paladino is speaking - clearly - the language spoken and understood by everyone north of Manhattan.
What's hilarious is that the gay mafia actually tries to dispute this fact. 20% of gay men have HIV (a disease that never found its way into the hetero population, as we were warned it would), they have astronomical hepititus and STD rates and they use illicit narcotics at a higher rate than any other group on the planet... but there's no dimished life expectancy there. Of course not.
A love Carl Paladino for standing up to these people. This is a debate this country needs to have right now. Bring it on.
Amen to that!
Preview, dammit, preview.
Speaking as a dirty rotten sinner saved by Grace, homosexuality is a sin and a disorder. Gay pride parades are certainly not suitable for children, let alone adults.
Nobody should be involved in homosexual activity, nothing at all to be proud of.
Also Paladino is right on abortion,he said incest.rape etc, is still no excuse to kill a child
The school safety czar’s agenda needs to be removed from schools
However, a Philadelphia psychiatrist told The Bulletin that many of the conceptions that drive the push for curricula that endorse a homosexual lifestyle have no basis in scientific findings.
Dr. Rick Fitzgibbons is the director of the Institute for Marital Healing in West Conshohocken and has worked with thousands of patients over the past 30 years. He has lectured at the International Institute for Culture on identifying and resolving emotional conflicts in children. Dr. Fitzgibbons said that there is ample evidence to show that homosexual relationships are not on par with heterosexual ones.
"People are being taught through media and government that there is no difference between the homosexual lifestyle and the heterosexual lifestyle," said Dr. Fitzgibbons. But he said there is no scientific evidence to support that message.
Dr. Fitzgibbons and other psychiatric researchers from the National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) compiled information from various scientific studies on homosexuality to debunk unscientific claims about homosexual relationships.
"Homosexual relationships are abusive between 35 and 55 percent of the time," said Dr. Fitzgibbons. "Heterosexual relationships have about 7 percent abuse."
Joanne Glussman, the leader of a group called the Mainline Youth Alliance (MYA), which is designed to provide a place for social interaction of students who identify as homosexual, favors educational initiatives that endorse homosexuality. She pointed to a 2008 poll by the Gay Lesbian and Straight Education Network (GLSEN) of over 6,000 middle and high school students that found nearly nine out of 10 gay students felt harassed at school in the past year. About a third of those students said they had skipped a day of school in the past month because they did not feel safe.
"That's really what it's about," said Ms. Glusman. "Because as you know if you've done your research, these kids are at exorbitantly high risk of harassment, physical harm and even death."
Still, Dr. Fitzgibbons brings a host of scientific research to endorse his position. Scientists have found that persons with same-sex attractions are at a much greater risk of suffering from other psychological disorders, such as depression, substance abuse and thoughts of suicide. These studies were published by the American Journal of Public Health, the International Journal of Epidemiology and the Annals of Internal Medicine.
Dr. Fitzgibbons said these studies indicate homosexual relationships have problems with commitment and don't come anywhere close to the levels of commitment reflected in heterosexual unions. Such a relationship scene, he says, goes against what people expect from relationships.
Nothing but the unvarnished truth.
the media and especially FOX, yes you FOX are getting out of control on your attacks against Paladino.
Is it because he caught you scum bags looking through his kids bedroom window or is it because he called you out on your bias.
Taking your kids to a homosexual parade is disgusting.
I happened to bump into one one in Boston and I have neevr seen such disgusting acts in my life and I was in the military around the world.
You the MEDIA should BE ASHAMED.
There is nothing controversial or explosive in his remarks except in your elitist NY city eyes.
FOX, Megyn kelly , Kilmeade etc get a frigging grip of yourselves and ask why does a man take his kids to see other men and women touching each other and mock Nuns while they rub each other up or watch them touch each other.
the communist manifesto years ago said that they had to promote homosexuality in order to break the normal family thus ruining the west.
Keeping silent has only encouraged and helped the homosexual agenda and all of us need to talk out against it.
I’ve always corrected people , people I do not know when they advance their homosexual agenda, the more speak out the mroe it lets others know what is truly going on.
The media are afraid of Paladino as he calls them out and speaks for the majority and that is why FOX and others are going after him
Right. That's about the only thing I can think of. I hope Paladino wins big.
This denial is harmful to them, as well as others as until one can admit this is sin they cannot be forgiven of it, thru repetance and faith inthe Lord Jesus:
taking a kid to promote yourself for votes is sickening and yet the boas media ignore that.
I’ve seen a homosexual parade and felt sick.
They acted like little kids, insulting other religions, dressed in ways they should have been arrested and yet some think this is alright to take kids too?
Yet again the elitist media up in Ny city show their disgusting bias and attack a man for speaking what the majority think.
Ask the rat if he wants homosexuals to marry and he will say yes but no the media does not do that as they know deep down that could lose him the election.
At this rate a wall will have to be built between VA and the north east not AZ and MX
Tell it, Paladino! I am so sick of the perverts chipping away at social mores in order to have a access to our children.
“My theory is that these particular individuals are self-loathing and consequently self-destructive.”
You are absolutely correct; they are miserable because deep down inside they know that what they do is wrong and a sin, and no amount of rationalization can make that go away. Because they cannot absolve themselves of their sin, their response is to try to drag everyone down to their level, in the final belief that if everyone is as miserable as they, everything will be OK.
NYC is the propaganda capital of the world...with the networks, newspapers, magazines, theater, music, Madison Ave...the advertising capital of the world.
These folks have the money, know-how, and the capabilities to pull off this big lie on the American people.
Megyn kelly on FOX just said that he has made explosive comments
er where, he said what the majority think.
Must be nice to live in la la land with all the elitists never really thinking what these people do to each other in order to get off and then say they should be treated as a normal couple.
I guarantee that many who say they have homosexual friends and they are nice would not say that when they see their so called friends doing it at a parade dressed in some perverted way in public.
As for the schools, well most in the country think it should not be in the schools.
LOVE TO SEE THIS MAN WIN BIG AND SHUT THIS BIAS MEDIA UP INCLUDING FOX.
I’ve been turning off FOX on some programmes for some time but today it was the final straw for me.
First FOX and friends had a go at Paladino , now the next show I watch Kelly made some idiotic comments by saying he made explosive comments coast to coast.
Er no he never, maybe they should ask why children are being took to homosexual parades, to see two of the same sex rubbing each other up, dressed in a perverted way, mocking Nuns. touching each other etc.
The media have no clue what real people think or feel any more and I think that is why they are attacking Paladino.
sadly some fall for their lies, even on here.
Except for sports, I don’t watch anything on television that was produced after 1970.
The AID’s epidemic illuminated a great deal about how the human immune system works.
You should all attend your next gay parade and throw eggs. Water balloons, etc.
Paladino said children were being "brainwashed" into accepting homosexuality as "valid."Buried elsewhere in the news:
I don't think it's a "misery loves company" thing. I think they feel that if they can silence the voices (and thoughts) that disapprove of their so-called lifestyle; then they can finally be comfortable in their own skin.
Some gays actually are comfortable in their own skin. They are the ones with a live and let live attitude who just want to sodomize each other in peace and don't like to get political or demonstrative about it. The self-loathing narcissists are the problem.
My husband and I were in SF and a similar thing happened. I grew up in SF in the 70s and 80s, before things like the pervert parades were going on (oh there were bathhouses and AIDS, but still a bit hidden, not so blatant in our faces).
It was my hubby's first trip to the city. He was revolted when he saw half naked (bums showing COMPLETELY out of their chaps) walking around the downtown Marriott. He even asked the front desk why that was allowed. Thank goodness I was somewhere else then, out walking or something, and missed all of that...
I was in the city of SF when pretty much every gay man we knew (some were teachers in our school, some at my dad’s work, some friends of friends, etc.) died. In the early to mid 1980’s. It even extended into places where I later worked in the 80s, southern CA.
But I don’t know what happened, it’s like 5 more took the place of every one who died!!??
I was in Boston with the family including my little boy at that time.
At that time I never even paid attention to the homosexuals.
Anyway we turned a corner onto Boylston street and low and behold there was a homosexual parade.
Now I had just left the military, been around, done things , seen things etc but what I saw there was the most disgusting sick acts and views I have seen.
Men wearing daisy duke PVC shorts touching each other, my boy asked why was they feeling each others bums.
I saw people dressed as nuns pretending to have sex with each other and themselves with a cross and dildo’s.
It goes on and on what we saw and that was no more than 2 mins as we got away sharply.
It was a freak show and that day has woken my eyes up to how homosexuals are.
Since then I have seen some right drama queens, homosexual women who think they’re men, homosexual men who think they’re women.
I’ve spoken to a few of them and nearly everyone one of them seems miserable deep down though they act all queenie or they have some major issues and all seem confused as to who they really are due to their past.
I’ve never been to SF but I’ve seen photo’s form the folsom fair
If we want to stop the homosexual agenda then show photo’s from these parades and the public will wake up instead of saying well I have a friend and he is nice so I have no problem with them bla bla.
If they want marriage then let men have 9 wives, a father marry his consenting daughter etc.
it’s all or nothing and I want nothing but normal traditional marriage as what has been the back bone of this country for many generations.
Homosexuals know they need to get kids in order to further their agenda .
Many I bet have no clue that the communist manifesto from way back says that in order to destroy the west they have to go after traditional families and they have to promote homosexuality.
LOL but what is it with homosexuals and these chaps, I bet they were black PVC ones too.
so much for saying it is their own private business in their bedroom.
