Homo Say What? – NY Republican Tea Party Candidate for Govenor Carl Paladino: "There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual." (Video)

“(Being homosexual) is not how God created us.  I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family, and I don’t want them brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option — it isn’t,” said Paladino, who has a reputation for being frank to the point of volatility.  GOP/TEA PARTY Candidtate Carl Paladino speaking at the Orthodox Jewish Congregation Shaarei Chaim in Brooklyn, NY

Paladino also had controversial remarks that he did not deliver, writing at one point in his prepared speech: “There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual.” and then went on to say.  “Don’t misquote me as wanting to hurt homosexual people in any way. That would be a dastardly lie.”

Paladino declined interview requests later in the day but his campaign manager, Michael R. Caputo, told The New York Times that he employs a gay man on his campaign staff and said his views reflect those of the Catholic Church. “Carl Paladino is simply expressing the views that he holds in his heart as a Catholic,” Caputo told The Times. “Carl Paladino is not homophobic, and neither is the Catholic Church.”

Lets get this straight Carl “BeastMaster” Paladino thinks it’s bad for two men to be in a committed relationship, but he thinks it’s “normal” for  men to look at porn of a woman having sex with a horse?

This man, if one can even truly call him that,  would have to climb a ladder just to reach “beneath all contempt”

  1. Rachel Maddow is right. And he's making a fool out of those who support them. He's tricking them into coming out of their racist, misogynist, homophobic, all around hate-filled closets. The whole teaparty, super "conservative" party is a cruel joke.
