gathering in Brooklyn on Sunday. For the record, during the same speech, Paladino also made the following statements:
"I just think my children and your children would be 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."
"I didn't march in the gay pride parade this year...My opponent did, and that's not the example we should be showing our children."
Okay, so let's get this straight: Mr. Paladino would like gays and lesbians to know that they corrupt children and that their existences are not valid. Oh, and he made these remarks following the suicides of 6 gay teens who had been harassed for their sexuality. That's all. It's not like he wants to hurt anyone.
