Vile stuff:

Transcript of the vileness:

We must stop pandering to the pornographers and the perverts who seek to target our children and destroy their lives. I didn’t march in the gay parade this year, the Gay Pride parade this year. My opponent did. And that’s not the example we should be showing our children, and certainly not in our schools.

And don’t misquote me as wanting to hurt homosexual people in any way. That would be a dastardly lie. My approach is live and let live. I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful in getting married and raising a family. And I don’t want them to be brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid or successful option. It isn’t.

One more bit of vileness that The New York Times reports was in his written speech but went unsaid:

There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual.


Warnings against pornographers and “perverts” from a man who sends an e-mail of a woman being degraded with a horse.

Vile. Vile. Vile.

Hopefully all of this finally assures that he does not become my governor.
