Yesterday, Republican State Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli reiterated his beliefs about gays and lesbians during a heated debate with his Virginia gubernatorial opponent Terry McAuliffe.

Politico reports on how Cuccinelli responded to a question by moderator Judy Woodruff in which she asked if he still agreed that homosexuality was “against nature and harmful to society":

“My personal beliefs about the personal challenges of homosexuality haven’t changed,” he said at one point. “What I want to do as governor is create an environment, including an economic environment, where every Virginian has the opportunity to succeed.”
