GOP Virginia Gubernatorial Nominee Ken Cuccinelli: Puritanism Revived!

Republican Virginia gubernatorial nominee Ken Cuccinelli is a nightmare in the making, as he is a 21st century extremist Puritan, wishing to control the private social and sexual behavior of adults, as if one can do that!

Already shown to be extremely prudish, and constantly promoting theocracy in government as Virginia Attorney General, he has now made it clear that he wants to declare oral and anal sex of consenting adults to be illegal and prosecutable, along with stating total condemnation of gays and lesbians as having no souls and being self destructive in their behavior, and not being entitled to workplace protection against discrimination because of their sexual orientation!

Cuccinelli ordered the covering up of the Virginia state seal, which shows a bared breast of a Roman goddess, and claims natural law, which is in his mind Christian Biblical law, should govern all relationships between people, including in the privacy of their own bedrooms!

This man is very sick and totalitarian in his desire to control people’s private lives, while denouncing ObamaCare as intrusion in the lives of Americans!

So government is not designed to deal with real problems such as health care, according to Cuccinelli, but should have police break into bedrooms or other private places to control the sex lives of adults!

What could be more tyrannical or dictatorial action by government at any level than such a belief in the right of the state to control the most basic rights and freedoms of all people than this?

This man is a menace, and hopefully, the state of Virginia will have the common and good sense to send him packing into private life! And do not be surprised if, in the future, we will find that he is a typical “religious”, Puritanical hypocrite who says one thing, and does another! And realize that Cuccinelli has already been implicated as taking money from the same company that has been connected to outgoing Governor Bob McDonnell, who faces the threat of being removed from office before his term ends at the close of 2013.

The Virginia GOP is in tatters, and the good name of the state of Virginia requires that the party be repudiated as a party of not only corruption, but also of religious hypocrisy and totalitarian bent over the private love lives of all Virginians!

    Is Virginia Lt. Gov. Ken Cuccinelli yet another closeted Republican (like numerous politicians and figures) who were either exposed or finally came clean (over the past several years)?

  2. Princess Leia July 22, 2013 11:48 am

    He is definitely not going to be getting my vote this November!

    D, Cuccinelli is the Attorney General, not the Lieutenant Governor right now, in Virginia! As far as if he is closeted, who knows, but I would not be surprised one bit if that was true. In fact, I would LOVE for that to be the case, as it would further promote the hypocrisy of these conservatives, who claim to be “religious”, and are so demagogic in their attacks on freedom, which they claim they believe in, falsely!

    And black minister E. W. Jackson, Cuccinelli’s running mate for Lieutenant Governor, is in some ways, even more monstrous than Cuccinelli, in his condemnation of gays and lesbians, his outrageous comparison of Great Society programs of Lyndon B. Johnson to slavery, and his calling of Barack Obama as being the “anti Christ”! The Virginia Republican Party has gone bonkers, and now corrupt Governor Bob McDonnell, another weird, strange leader, looks like a “dream” by comparison to Cuccinelli and Jackson!

    “The present case does not involve minors. It does not involve persons who might be injured or coerced or who are situated in relationships where consent might not easily be refused. It does not involve public conduct or prostitution. It does not involve whether the government must give formal recognition to any relationship that homosexual persons seek to enter. The case does involve two adults who, with full and mutual consent from each other,engaged in sexual practices common to a homosexual lifestyle.
    We conclude the case should be resolved by determining whether the petitioners were free as adults to engage in the private conduct in the exercise of their liberty under the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution” Justice Kennedy in Lawrence v. Texas.
    Virginia Code section 18.2-361(A) states: “If any person . . . carnally knows any male or female person by the anus or by or with the mouth, or voluntarily submits to such carnal knowledge, he or she shall be guilty of a [felony]”
    In MacDonald v Moose, the issue was whether the Virginia statute was facially or as applied in this case, where MacDonald is an adult and Moose a minor, unconstitutional under Lawrence. Last March in a two-to-one decision (the lone dissent coming from an Obama appointee) of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit held that the Virginia statute was unconstitutional,therefore MacDonald, a sexual predator walked free because he could not be convicted of this felony. The Virginia statute since the Lawrence decision ( and even before that decision due to common sense) had only been applied to sex offenders of minors, not between consenting adults because that would be unconstitutional under Lawrence. So do my progressive friends agree with the Fourth Circuit ruling that the Virginia statute is unconstitutional even as applied in the MacDonald case?

    I looked up this case, and the man was 47 and the girl 17. Virginia is one of 12 states which has 18 as the legal limit, while the other 38 states have it at 16 or 17. But, ironically, a girl from 15 up CAN have sex with a guy who is 15-18, but not over 18. So it is clear that the law is weird, strange, and could not have occurred in three fourths of the states.

    I think this is much ado over nothing, as who knows, the girl might have been very close to 18, and at the age of 17 plus, if they can have sex with a guy 15-18, I see no big deal about someone over 18! So much time is wasted on issues that are not important, while poverty, discrimination, lack of health care, and other issues are overlooked, when those are truly MORAL causes!

    All this does is promote theocracy control, when so many of these people who are promoting it are engaged in such activities themselves, as we well know from history and recent events. Hypocrisy rules, but enough of that, and let’s pay attention to what really matters!

    Lulz! So how exactly does this sanctimonious clown running for Governor of Virginia propose to enforce this medieval law? Mandatory spycams in every bedroom and bathroom within every home in the state?

  7. Robert July 22, 2013 1:24 pm

    Ronald, yes she was 17, but what about if she were 14 or 13? I know there are other issues, but just because some in Virginia, including Cuccinelli, believe that this statute as applied to adults with minors is constitutional under Lawrence does not mean that they want to impose a theocracy. At least in my humble opinion you really have to take a great leap to make that assertion. I mean seriously considering this a felony when applied to minors I think has nothing to do with theocracy or even religion, its just common moral sense. Or maybe I am wrong and the “common” now think it is OK.

  8. Ronald July 22, 2013 1:32 pm

    Robert, I would assume the courts would have ruled differently, as sex under 15 is illegal, even for two minors, under the law in Virginia!

  9. Robert July 22, 2013 1:36 pm

    So you would agree that even under Lawrence the Virginia statute applied in sexual predator cases , involving an adult and a minor 17,16, 15 year old is unconstitutional then?

  10. Ronald July 22, 2013 1:43 pm

    I would say that IF 15 and up can engage in sex acts with 15, 16, and 17 years old, then to have a different standard for those 18 and above is preposterous, as if somehow, someone who hits the magic age of 18 and over has more ability to “corrupt” a 15-17 year old than someone of that age group! I see no difference on the issue of being “corrupted” or taken advantage of, since the Virginia law is so ridiculous to have that age exception!

    IF the law had made no exceptions under the age of 18, then the result of the case would be very different. But with 38 states having a lower age than 18, it is time for Virginia and the other eleven states with an 18 limit to catch up to reality and modern times!

  11. Robert July 22, 2013 1:55 pm

    So the age of consent should be 15. An adult 35 yo can have sex with a 15 yo and there should be no statutory rape in this case, unless the minor is less than 15. Interesting.

  12. Ronald July 22, 2013 2:03 pm

    It is 16 in many states, and 17 in some states, Robert. And again a 15-17 year old can have sex with a 15 to 17 year old, so what makes someone older than 18, somehow, a “vampire”? Just the fact of the age? When most 15-17 year olds who engage in sex know full well what they are doing, and those who don’t are being “victimized” by others of whatever age, 15-17 or over 18!

  13. Ronald July 22, 2013 2:05 pm

    This does not mean that, personally, I believe in age of consent at 15, just pointing out the inconsistencies and contradictions of the Virginia law, and why the court did what it did!

  14. Paul Doyle July 23, 2013 12:19 am

    I wonder if you can be arrested in Virginia for performing Cuccinelli on a minor?
