Paladino's Anti-Gay Speech Written By Notorious Bigot Rabbi Yehuda Levin

It turns out that yesterday's anti-gay speech by teabagger loon Carl Paladino was actually written by Rabbinical Alliance leader Rabbi Yehuda Levin, whose repulsive attacks on LGBT people have long been quoted on this blog.
The remarks read in Borough Park by Paladino, who often speaks without prepared text, were written by Rabbi Yehuda Levin, an ardent opponent of gay rights and abortion and occasional New York political candidate, Rabbi Levin told The Jewish Week. Rabbi Levin, who endorsed Paladino on September 21 at his synagogue in Flatbush, has become a trusted advisor to Paladino on the Orthodox community. At a second stop in Brooklyn, K’hal Adas Kasho inWilliamsburg, Paladino blasted his opponent, Democrat Andrew Cuomo, for marching in the annual gay pride parade, saying he would not do so, and attacked school curricula that teach tolerance of gays. “I don’t want [children] brainwashed into thinking homosexuality is an equal valid and successful option,” according to reports. Some media reported that a line that was in his prepared text, saying “there is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual,” was in his prepared text but not delivered.
