As attorney general of Virginia, Ken Cuccinelli fought long and hard to reinstate an unconstitutional law banning consensual sodomy in the state. Defending his record as a state senator who routinely opposed basic legal protections for LGBTQ people, Cuccinelli explained, “My view is that homosexual acts, not homosexuality, but homosexual acts are wrong. They’re intrinsically wrong. And I think in a natural law based country it’s appropriate to have policies that reflect that.” He believes that letting gay adults get married “harms children,” and that the “homosexual agenda” (presumably he means the movement to gain equal rights for LGBTQ individuals and families) “brings nothing but self-destruction, not only physically but of their soul.”

Cuccinelli is, in short, a homophobe..
