Ken Cuccinelli calls gays harmful, unnatural, challenged (i.e. he promotes harm, unnatural hostilities, more challenges)

by Jeremy Hooper

Screen Shot 2013-07-22 At 8.18.32 AmIn a weekend debate, Virginia's far-right Attorney General and current GOP gubernatorial candidate, Ken Cuccinelli, said homosexuality is “against nature and harmful to society," as well as referred to being gay as a "personal challenge":

KEN CUCCINELLI: GAYS AND LESBIANS STILL 'HARMFUL TO SOCIETY' [Towle]

Asked why he chose to push such hostile messaging in such a prominent forum, Cuccinelli was rumored to say, "Well, it just seemed easier than going to every gay kid's house and telling him to cry himself to sleep that night."

Current polling gives the proudly anti-LGBT AG's Democratic opponent, Terry McCaullife, a slight edge. But until the public responds to outrageous and dangerous comments like Cuccinelli's by giving his or her opponent an impenetrable edge, we still have a major societal problem.
