I didn't realized his religion was hatred instead of some generally accepted faith or agnosticsm or atheism.

I beleive also David C. that he is somehow confussing us with the Teabager Klan as insane as that effort would be but that's what I think his problem is :-) ...

David, I did not go with GOP'ers however as their party has now become in the public eye that of the Teabager Klan and other white surpremist groups and reichwinger extremist in general..of which the Teabagers stand out and that of which the reichwing media promotes for sensation of course.

I thought the GOP wanted to get government OUT of our bedrooms. I am so tired and disgusted by these so-called excuses for human beings. It's a tragedy they're able to hold public office.

I wonder how people like this are going to react when the face their God and are asked why they were so filled with hate and so cruel to other people?

He is actually a candidate for Governor????? He's a moron, plain and simple---I can't imagine ANYONE being interested in anything he has to say. He's not a decent human being, anyone who spews hatred toward others like this, has no business near any public office. Frankly, I wish people like him would just not exist!~ Thanks Carrie!!~

The members of the GOP (Grand Obstructionist Party) are soulless, self-destructive, heartless, delusional, and absolutely brainless. Because they can't face the truth about themselves, they project their shortcomings onto others.

The current gay baiting by some Republicans is very much a backward trend, but the anti-sex attitude of this Rick Santorum clone is really ridiculous. I bet he gets upset that the French word for six is "sex", so expect him to want the banning of French especially due to he phrase "Menage a trois". Still, curiously people who are the most notorious prudes really have totally filthy minds I suspect he spends most evening tossing his cookies off to hardcore porn.

If you view the world in this light, it would be fair to say most people are soul-less and self-destructive. Look in the mirror Ken Cuccinelli.

Out of curiosity, I once checked Satanic Bible out of the library.
Yes, it is a religion of HATE.

SELF and SELF ALONE. Nothing is denied to SELF.

How repugnant!

The ego can never be satisfied.

And I stand by my attacks on Cuccinelli as soulless and destructive of all of us.

Ken Cuccinelli is a slimeball who is just as crooked as his boss, Governor Ultrasound. May be be roundly rejected by Virginia voters (including my parents, who loathe him).

I often think of the old expression "It takes one to know one" when stuff like this is tossed around - but I would hate to imply that Cooch knows anything at all.

When Congress failed to reauthorize VAWA, the Attorneys General of 50 states and five territories prepared a letter to speak out to defend women agains violence. 52 of 55 signed. Cooch was one of only three who did not. I have the graphic on my billboard on my profile page (I finally figured out how to use it LOL).

His opponent for Governor is Terry McAuliffe. Here is Terry's web address: Those of us who do not live in Virginia cannot vote, of course, be we can help if we are so inclined.

I normally don't comment on LBGT matters but Jeez D**kh##d all living things have souls. Secondly, what a person does as a consenting adult; providing it is done with another consenting adult of legal age is not the government's business.

Does this mean the entire Republican party is LGBT? Every one of them is certainly soulless and self destructive. Of course since the death of Barry Goldwater I've known a number of gay and lesbian folks and it's true, some have been self destructive, just like a lot of other people, but most haven't been. On the other hand that description applies to every living Republican. Sadly, they're not content to destroy their own lives, they insist on taking the sane ones amongst us down with them.

Nice to know he stands by his word... however unfounded, bigoted, vile, putrid, confused, deranged, and painfully laughable it is.

At least if I lived in Virginia, I'd know what I was voting against without question.

"Of LGBT people, he famously said, “When you look at the homosexual agenda, I cannot support something that I believe brings nothing but self-destruction, not only physically but of their soul.”

The only person in that race whose possession of a soul I question is Ken. I wonder if he has thought completely through his twisted logic. He wants abortion banned completely because all babies have souls at conception in his view. But orientation is present at birth and if those of other than hetero orientation have no souls, then how did God make that kind of mistake in utero and allow them to be born alive? No human can "destroy" an existing soul, if such a thing exists, it exists outside the reach of any human being. The most one can do is kill the body, no one knows what happens to the soul or whatever spark it is that gives us sentience, no one has ever come back from the other side to tell us. All we have are deeply flawed human opinions about that and as deeply flawed human writings about that - all by men with a purpose, to control and exercise power over other men and all women and children. Ken is just one more in a long line of wannabe despots who wants his particular view of life to be enshrined in law. What an ego. Comparable to any that came before him - like Genghis Khan, Alexander the Great, Napoleon, Adolph Hitler - and just as evil at his core as they. Oh they believed their own stories but it was their ego they fed. So does Ken. I hope Virginia shows him the door but given this is the state that gave us Governor Ultrasound, I have my doubts.

I didn't mention it and should have, Rachel Maddow has been following Ken since at least last year, she said he was the only person to the right of Governor ultrasound as his attorney general and she pointed out all of the legislation he and Bob McDonald authored during their legislative careers. The pair are two of the most extreme anti abortion, anti LGBT people in this country. Had Governor ultrasound NOT become governor ultrasound he was under consideration for the veep spot on Mitt's ticket but he preferred his extremism to the vice presidency. Which only goes to show how committed some men, these two in particular but there are many like them in the gop, are to controlling every aspect of women's lives and in trying to force all LGBT people back into the closet. That this is an impossible task does not diminish their zeal for it. I think that should be the new definition of insanity. Because it really is insane...

He is a abomination to humanity and a insult. Unfortunately with the decimation of the voting rights he will have a better than average possibility to win and Virgina will be more like a gulag than a part of America

I'll tell you what I find incredible, if he were to become Governor you would pray for his health because his lieutenant Governor candidate is even way crazier than him.

Please, Virginia, remember your forefathers, Washington, Jefferson, Madison and Monroe. Don''t allow the birthplace of presidents to become the birthplace of insanity.
