RICHMOND Va. --
In a testy interview today with CNN's Brooke Baldwin on the Virginia legislature's recent refusal to appoint openly gay Richmond prosecutor Tracy Thorne-Begland to a judgeship, Del. Robert G. Marshall, R-Prince William, declared that "sodomy is not a civil right." .
Marshall, a U.S. Senate candidate and one of the General Assembly's most conservative members, denied that he had lobbied against Thorne-Begland because he is gay, but instead termed him an "activist."
"He can be a prosecutor if he wants to," Marshall said, "but we don't want advocates as judges."
Marshall rejected Baldwin's comparison of the issue to civil rights and women's suffrage, remarking: "Sodomy is not a civil right. It's not the same as the civil rights movement."

We’ll see how long he can avoid being forced to apologize.
This will not sit well with them.
(from a French anti-smoking advertisement...not from a weirdo site)
Being against what he is doing is hateful! Don't be a beastiphobe! Why shouldn't he be a scout leader? Soon he will hailed as hero for having the courage to take his dog to prom.
A Republican actually has the guts to tell the truth. Very nice.
By the way. If you hit abuse on my pic, make sure you do it on the one showing two homosexual men holding little kids as well.
Still, it's not something the government should be looking into. On general grounds I agree with the repeal of sodomy laws because it's none of the government's damn business. That is, until that sodomite wants the government to put him in a position of trust, power and authority over others. Then it is very much the government's business.
Marshall is a good man, I have spoken to his wife briefly a few years ago-too bad he didn’t even come close to winning the Senate race.
It is not a civil rights movement.
It is more of a fender bender, rear ender movement.
Seriously, he’s totally correct. I really do not know why minorities have not just come out being totally offended at being morally equated to the “struggles” of sodomites and lesbians.
The reason sodomy laws existed is because it causes diseases and promotes vice that costs the civil society economically and health wise. There are actually very good reasons to have sodomy laws.
We have a right to outlaw acts which destroy the “general welfare” and destroy Virtue—since all Founders knew (since the time of Plato) that Virtue is necessary for a free society. The MOST important element for economies to flourish and for a successful, humane military is Virtue.
Robert G. Marshall for President.
If you think that is a crazy analogy, think of how much more likely it is to get physically and psychologically damaged or die from a disease if you bugger other men as often as you drive, with or without protection while engaging in either?
Ha-—No thanks to you for that ugly image!
The point is that we were a Nation based on Reason, Logic and Science and we recognized God as the Giver of our Natural Rights and as the Lawgiver.
Marxist/Progressive/Atheist thinking throws God out and Natural Laws—the basis of our Constitution because it is the basis of Common Sense.
Without the Laws of Nature, we would know nothing—never developed the concept of gravity, guns, iron, fire, etc. etc. We would have chaos.
That is what the Marxists want-—chaos—and with no logic and reasoning for Just Law—that is what we will get.
Homosexual “marriage” is a vile, ugly concept which defies logic and reason and biology. The fact that the Marxists can actually talk about this without snickering, tells you how ignorant people are who have went to their indoctrination centers, the public schools which destroy morals intentionally and destroy knowledge and wisdom.
People just don’t want to pay public welfare benefits for two lunatics sodding off all day.
Muslims would just kill homosexuals.
Taking into consideration broken clocks tell the correct time twice each day, maybe “spread the other cheek” is not a good public policy.
In your unabridged Oxford Dictionaries, the word “faggotry” denotes the bundling of steel to be hammered or rolled together.
Mammalian evolution is entirely heterosexual.
Monogamy is not required for evolution, monogamy is a tenet of religion.
To prohibit polyandry and polygyny is an ecclesiastic rule of law.
To establish an ecclesiastic standard of monogamy for homosexuals is nothing but RELIGIOUS FAGGOTRY.
Democrats live in a fantasy world where fairies wave magic wands over their anus and babies materialize out of thin air.
All men are born of a woman.
If you have to tell grown men that babies will not come out of their rectums, there is no hope for any rational discourse...
I do like how this guy highlights the problem with equating sodomy with voting rights...or being born black.
I’m guessing this is one reason why the black community consistently votes against gay marriage...it HAS to tick them off!
Do you think this is why so many blacks quietly pull the lever against gay marriage?
They don’t want to be labelled as bigots - so they aren’t too outspoken, but when it comes time to pull the curtain and vote.....
The Supreme Court legalized sodomy, the entertainment and news media try to normalize it, and now the Democrat Party wants to institutionalize it.
