Addressing Orthodox Jewish leaders, Mr. Paladino described his opposition to same-sex marriage."That's not how God created us," he said, reading from a prepared address. "I just think my children and your children would be much better off and much more successful getting married and raising a family, and I don't want them brainwashed into thinking that homosexuality is an equally valid and successful option -- it isn't."And then, to applause at Congregation Shaarei Chaim, he said: "I didn't march in the gay parade this year -- the gay pride parade this year. My opponent did, and that's not the example we should be showing our children."Newsday.com reported that Mr. Paladino's prepared text had included the sentence: "There is nothing to be proud of in being a dysfunctional homosexual." But Mr. Paladino omitted the sentence in his speech.
