Virginia AG Ken Cuccinelli:
Homosexual Acts are a Detriment to Our Culture


Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who has been under fire for advice he gave two weeks ago that public universities should rescind their bylaws protecting gays and lesbians from discrimination, was asked today if he believes the practice of homosexuality is a detriment to our culture.

Said Cuccinelli: "The acts are. You certainly want everybody in your society to be integrated in the society, so, that's a focus that I'd like to take, but there's a distinction. And it's one that the General Assembly seems to be wrestling with every year, and we'll leave that one to them for now."

  1. The ironic thing about homophobia is that the very first curse in the Bible, that is directed at humans (the absolute first curse targets snakes - a metaphor for politicians perhaps) - the first curse in the Bible directed at humans

    specifically, explicitly, without any room for doubt

    targets the "normal" result of heterosexual sexual acts.

    Genesis 3:16

    16 To the woman he said,
    "I will greatly increase your pains in childbearing; with pain you will give birth to children. Your desire will be for your husband,and he will rule over you."

    Long before Sodom, long before the Levitical Codes, long before the Flood, the first curse on humans specifically targets the biological purpose of heterosexual intercourse.

  2. I'm just playing devil's advocate and am wondering if a boycott of the state will accomplish anything. I agree that a message needs to be sent. This guy is virtually digging his own grave -- it is becoming obvious that his election was a big mistake. I can imagine things getting worse and worse as time goes by (as he opens his mouth more). I really don't think that he'll be caught at a rest stop -- he will keep making inane comments, infuriating the students at the colleges and universities, and the people who didn't vote for him. His election is now looking to be more of an embarrassment than anything. The state has two Democratic senators, has a Democratic majority in the State Senate, has had Democratic governors for the past two terms, and voted for Obama. I think that he is becoming more of a problem for the current governor, a Republican.

    If you do boycott businesses, you definitely should explain why -- or better yet, inform the Governor the reason for this. The last thing he wants is to be associated with a negative, backwards, discriminatory image.

  3. What does he mean by "the acts"? Does he mean something as gentle as a kiss? Does he mean something as innocent as "hand-holding"? Because, make no mistake, it isn't just anal sex that conservatives are opposed to. They are opposed to anything that resembles an interaction between two people of the same gender, men especially.

    Perhaps if conservatives formulated their argument in terms of promiscuity, they might have a case. It's true, unfortunately, that promiscuity is a large part of male-male sexuality, partly because men are horny by nature and partly because there is no moderating influence of woman. However, conservatives aren't just against promiscuous gays, they're also against monogamous gays. Just look at their opposition to gay marriage.

    Maybe, at the end of the day, conservatives simply fear themselves. They fear the inner part of themselves that has desires for the same gender. They're essentially fighting against themselves.

  4. So they may be integrated into society if they renounce the practice of these acts or manage to keep their prediliction to perform these acts secret. That sounds like DADT, Mr. C. What are your and your comrade's plans for those who refuse to follow your rules? Expell them from the state of Virginia or something a la Uganda? These are serious questions, Mr. C because as the Attorney General you are the top law enforcement agent in the state, and you have made several veiled threats against the LGBT citizens of Virginia.

  5. He needs to explain himself. How, exactly, are homosexual acts going to destroy society? How often does encounter these acts? What does he do when he encounters them? Why is he in the bathroom at the Eagle?

  6. He is speaking this way because he has been granted immunity by his governor. If he were gen counsel of a sizable corporation, they would have shown him the door before he completed the sentance. Then again, a JD from George Mason wouldn't likely be gen counsel of a sizable corporation.

  11. IMHO the Virginia boycott should be


    very well publicized


    national (vs. just in the DC area)

    explicitly connected to Cuccinelli (see K's comments above)


    economically painful

    until this evil idiot is run out of office.

  12. It's a given that anyone Gay would most likely be involved in "Homosexual acts".How does Mr Cuccinelli intend on discovering how many "straights" perform homosexual acts(but, of course, are not gay or bi...). I'd be willing to bet his a member of the Larry Craig or eric Masse fan club.

  15. This is a man who also thinks Obama has no right to be president. In short, someone who can't be reasoned with.

  16. So..if I kiss my partner of 20 that a "homosexual act"? I wonder how in the world that would be a detriment to our society?? Ken..please explain.

  17. I warned everyone about him last November. This was a guy who was so conservative that he was about to be booted out of his own district -- but most everyone who voted for Obama stayed home, and now this is what we're stuck with.

    I wonder if he and the state will issue us with pink triangles or if they'll make us buy them ourselves. Guess it's time to move back across the river to Maryland or the District.

    I find it telling that a few days after Virginia rescinded *all* gay rights, Maryland announced it was going to recognize DC same-sex marriages. The legislature then voted to formally secede from the South. They will now caucus with the Northeastern states at state-level and gubernatorial conferences. There's clearly a culture war brewing on both sides of the Potomac.

    if, you are relying on scripture, i would very definitely disagree with you that scripture ever said homosexuality was a sin. in regards to lev.....not all prohibitions of lev of themselves were sins.

    and other things that were directed that are now considered intolerable evils..........."make slaves from the surrounding countries for life and pass them onto your children as inheritance."

    numbers 15: 32 While the Israelites were in the desert, a man was found gathering wood on the Sabbath day. 33 Those who found him gathering wood brought him to Moses and Aaron and the whole assembly, 34 and they kept him in custody, because it was not clear what should be done to him. 35 Then the LORD said to Moses, "The man must die. The whole assembly must stone him outside the camp." 36 So the assembly took him outside the camp and stoned him to death, as the LORD commanded Moses.

    under the new covenant household chores are not a sin, neither is doing them on the sabbath.

    you are speaking out of self identity, the concept of "i " "i believe this" "i believe that "

    you cannot explain how homosexuality comes against the 2nd commmandment(love your neighbor...), the summation of all new covenant law. because it doesnt. or how does homosexuality come against the spirit of christ or the fruit of the holy spirit........because again, it doesnt.

    the only way believers, like yourself have determined that homosexuality is declared a sin in the new testament, is by assignment of meaning to certain verses in spite of their words or by fraudulent legalities.

    lets face it you are merely mouthing cultural understandings handed down generationally for 600 years, beginning with king henry the 8th.

  20. Gov McDonald & Coochi were swept into Va state politics due to the piss-poor campaign run by the Dems this past fall, much like Martha Cloakley in Mass.

    How will the gays & lesbians, there are a great many, who reside in Northern Va respond to this Tea Party pandering?

    Anyone else think that Coochi is following the orders given him by fundamentalist & graduate of-Pat Robertson owned- Regent Universtiy,Gov Bob McDonald?

  21. Seems as if there is a lot of anti-gay backlash in recent weeks. I feel it was ignited about a year ago by whoever the homophobe in the White House is--the smug person who suggested incorporating Rick Warren into a high-profile role for the inauguration to warn gay activists to back off and not try to lever for their support during the election.

  22. He and Bob McDonnell, the governor, are two sick fucks, that's for sure.
