New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino has rightly received criticism for his antigay comments, including his remarks that children should be shielded from gay activities, especially their parades. Paladino criticized his Democratic opponent, Andrew Cuomo, for marching in New York's gay pride parade and letting his children watch it.
Patt Morrison of the L.A.Times reports on the missed story (covered only by the New York Post)--that Paladino's remarks about gays occurred at a Brooklyn synagogue where women reporters were barred from entry. Women on the upper floors of the synagogue then dumped water on the journalists. Morrison suggests that Paladino would have been unlikely to appear at an event that barred African American or Latino journalists, and he would have had an even bigger self-made mess on his hands had that happened.
More evidence that religions provide the easiest and most acceptable places to discriminate against women, so much so that it isn't even commented on.
