Feed: Paladino's Gay Brainwashing Flap

New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino caused a stir with anti-gay remarks Sunday while speaking to an Orthodox Jewish group.

Paladino said, "My children and your children will be much better off and much more successful getting married and having a family and I don't want them to be brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid or successful option, it isn't."

Paladino offered no apologies for his comments.

In Chile, rescue crews celebrated as they broke through to the 33 miners trapped underground for two months. American Jeff Hart from Colorado operated the drill.

Hart said, "It's unbelievable, there is no words to explain it. It's unbelievable - it's a pleasure to be here, I will never do anything this important."
