Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, how running for governor, is trying to back away from some of his more extreme statements of the past (and his running mate, E.W. Jackson, even more so). A local news station uncovered a video of him last year giving a talk at an anti-abortion conference saying he’s amazed God hasn’t punished us more than he has for abortion:
Early on in the speech Cuccinelli sets the stage in his remarks by discussing how God judges nation according to scripture.
“But he does judge nations and obviously we don’t have to score a hundred percent,” Cuccinelli said.
Then later on in the speech, which also touched on gay marriage and other social issues, Cuccinelli gets very specific about his view of God’s review of the United States as it relates to to its abortion policies.
“Really, Given that God does judge nations, it’s amazing that abortion has run as far and foully as it has, without what I would consider to be a greater imposition of judgment on this country,” Cuccinelli said. “Who knows what the future holds?”
The people of Virginia should be very disturbed at the thought of having a governor who actually believes that God punishes nations if they do things he doesn’t like. How exactly is that different from the Taliban?
