Virginia is for Haters

Thursday, October 29, 2009


Republican Ken Cuccinelli, running for Attorney General in Virginia, has declined to promise whether he will uphold the state nondiscrimination policy enforced by his GOP predecessor, telling the Virginia-Pilot:

“My view is that homosexual acts, not homosexuality, but homosexual acts are wrong. They’re intrinsically wrong. And I think in a natural law based country it’s appropriate to have policies that reflect that. They don’t comport with natural law. I happen to think that it represents (to put it politely; I need my thesaurus to be polite) behavior that is not healthy to an individual and in aggregate is not healthy to society.”

Can someone slowly explain to Mr. Cuccinelli that as Attorney General, his duty is to uniformly enforce the laws of the state and that he represents all of the people of Virginia. His personal biases and religious prejudices about homosexuality cannot inform this process.

    If Cuccinelli becomes Virginia’s AG, what does it say about the Democrats turning a red state to blue? I think this race could portend bad news for the 2010 midterms.

    How do these assholes continue to gain office? Its been said on here a hundred times…its like we are still living in the dark ages, or in Iran. This mentality is homophobic, and discriminatory. When will we as a nation ever get past that?

  3. Adirondacky says:

    Just because you were smart enough to get into law school isn’t any indication of your moral character. I hope this candidate for AG is defeated. His remarks are troubling and suggest he is ill-suited to be elected attorney general.

    With people like him, religious ideology trumps law. He and McDonnell are enemies of democracy.

  5. Also…does anyone ever consider that these…*gags a bit*…’people’ probably practice sodomy with their own wives???? Let’s catch him with a prostitute!

    Virginia is a schizophrenic state.

    The northern suburbs of Alexandria and Arlington are culturally part of Washington DC, with highly educated residents, progressive, with many gays and lesbians and recent arrivals from foreign nations. These cities are part of the “north.”

    Southern Virgina is much like the “old south.” Cities like Richmond and Roanoke are conservative and stuck in the 1960’s. They vote Republican and by all indication, don’t have any interest in change.

    I’ve always said if it were left up to me, I think the state of Virginia should split much like North Carolina and South Carolina are split.

    Love the twist on the Virginia state travel motto!

  8. So homosexuality is natural, but homosexual acts are wrong. Does this mean that you dudes and chicks, when acting out, are controlled by a robot? My theory makes about as much sense as this yokel.

    This clown looks just like Ricky Lazio. Remember him? I thought it was Lazio.

  10. mbmdl says:

    Yes, Harry. I thought the same as you. This dreadful man looks like Rick Lazio’s twin brother. How ironic they’re both Republicans and not to keen on gay rights?

    In Northern Virginia, Taco Bell is trendy and ethnic. In Western Virginia, Taco Bell is foreign and dangerous.

    What do these assholes know about ‘natural law’? Evolution is natural law, and I’ll bet this dick doesn’t believe in that one iota.

    He’s gay, no doubt about it.
