Democrat Terry McAuliffe won the Virginia governor's race Tuesday, squeaking by Republican Ken Cuccinelli with the help of voters in the predominantly blue Washington suburbs.
McAuliffe's victory in the key swing state was an affirmation of his strategy to portray Cuccinelli, the state attorney general, as a Tea Party champion who is too extreme for Virginia.
Cuccinelli had spoken out against sodomy, a tactic that might have helped him to win decades ago but helped him to lose today.
The God of Abraham was so angry at the citizens of Sodom and Gomorrah they he destroyed them with fire and brimstone. Religious conservatives are convinced that a person could want no more clear indictment of sodomy than that. They could be right. But it's worth noting that God destroyed these two cities, leaving no trace of them or their people. And yet sodomy survived.
Maybe it was the unspeakable, lost from history practice of gomorrahy that God disapproved of.
