Cuccinelli again explains his advice to colleges on gay policies

Anita Kumar

Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli wrote an op-ed in the Richmond Times Dispatch today to explain why he advised Virginia colleges and universities they should remove language dealing with sexual orientation from campus anti-discrimination policies.

Cuccinelli, who attended the University of Virginia, writes that he thinks that no one should be discriminated against but maintains only the General Assembly can create "a specially protected class.''

"A public university simply lacks the power to create a new specially protected class under Virginia law,'' he writes.

Read his full op-ed.

The reason that Cuccinelli did this is because of his religious belief that homosexuality is a mortal sin not because he can't resist the urge to make a legal point. He's picking on people who pose no threat to anyone. Ending access to birth control is next on his list. The worries we had about a Catholic becoming president and governing per church doctrine are coming true decades later in Virginia with Ken C. Ironic that the German born Holy Father is now becoming embroiled in the priest abuse scandals now surfacing in several catholic schools in Germany. Perhaps Ken should add going after priest pedophiles to his list of targets.

Oh, good grief! Cuccinelli has made it plain over the years exactly how he feels about gay people. To pretend now that laws give him no choice is to venture beyond hypocricy into fiction.

I almost preferred the days when McDonnell and Cuccinelli and others of that ilk were at least honest about they homophobia.

There you go, accuse those you disagree with of being homophobes and make fun of the pope. Do you liberals ever wonder why you are such a small minority in this country? Maybe because you're a bunch of intolerant whack jobs.

Yes, alan8228, just like that little disagreement between Hitler and the Jews.
