NY Republican governor hopeful makes anti-gay remarks

NEW YORK — Carl Paladino, the conservative Republican candidate to be governor of New York told Orthodox Jewish leaders on Sunday he does not want children "brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality" is acceptable.
"That's not how God created us," Paladino said of being gay, "and that's not the example that we should be showing our children." He added that children who later in life choose to marry people of the opposite sex and raise families would be "much better off and much more successful." "I don't want them to be brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option," he said.
