Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli filed the first successful challenge to the Obama administration's Affordable Care Act. The Justice Department is appealing the decision.

The Republican made his remarks at a "Christian Citizenship and Godly Government'' breakfast. About 250 church leaders attended the event sponsored by the conservative Virginia Christian Alliance.

Cuccinelli told the church leaders that issues like same-sex marriage and abortion-rights are threatening conservative Christian values in Virginia.

He said it's not unusual for Christians to shy away from politics because they consider it dirty. He said when church leaders do that, they just leave the field to the other side.
