I can’t say that I blame him. Apparently he found the attack ad used against him by his Democratic opponent, Jack Conway, accusing him of tying an anonymous women up and forcing her to worship something called an “Aqua Buddha,” so reprehensible that he said in his closing remarks during their debate:
When this debate ends you will notice that I will not be shaking [Conway’s] hand tonight. I will not shake hands with someone who attacks my religion and attacks my Christian beliefs. These are something very personal to me, my wife, my kids, we take it very personally. And I will not be associated with someone who will attack my religion. This election will be about the future of America, who has the best vision. We will try to keep the debate on a higher tone. I hope you will leave my church, my family and my religion out of it.
