We already knew Tea Party-backed New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino is sort of racist, and definitely a hypocrite. It was only a matter of time before Carl Paladino said a bunch of homophobic stuff. That time is now!
Speaking to a group of Orthodox Jewish leaders in Williamsburg, Paladino promised that he would veto any gay marriage bill passed by the legislature. Oh, also: "I don't want [children] brainwashed into thinking homosexuality is an equal valid and successful option." That's some A-grade, Buffalo-bred homophobia right there!
"I didn't march in the Gay Pride parade this year. My opponent did. There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual. That's not how God created us, and that's not the example that we should be showing our children - and certainly not in our schools," Paladino said.
