U.S. Senate candidate says gay marriage could lead to marriage between people, horses

And you thought Sen. John McCain was bad on LGBT issues. McCain’s challenger in the Republican primary, former Arizona congressman J.D. Hayworth, is the new Rick Santorum. Hayworth told a Florida radio station over the weekend that he believes the Massachusetts Supreme Court’s decision authorizing same-sex marriage could lead to marriages between people and horses, according to The Huffington Post:

“You see, the Massachusetts Supreme Court, when it started this move toward same-sex marriage, actually defined marriage — now get this — it defined marriage as simply, ‘the establishment of intimacy,’” Hayworth said. “Now how dangerous is that? I mean, I don’t mean to be absurd about it, but I guess I can make the point of absurdity with an absurd point — I guess that would mean if you really had affection for your horse, I guess you could marry your horse. It’s just the wrong way to go, and the only way to protect the institution of marriage is with that federal marriage amendment that I support.”
