Facts

-- Claims HIV/AIDS is God's punishment: "There's a passage that I love in Romans 1 - I don't love what the topic is - but it talks about homosexuality and it says that they will receive in their bodies the penalties of their behavior. And the Bible again, it's right every time, and studies keep proving that and that's why AIDS has been something they haven't discovered a cure for or a vaccine for, because it's the fastest self-mutating virus known to mankind. Every time they just about get a vaccine discovered for it, it transmutes into something new and they have to start over again. And that goes to what God says, hey you're going to bear in your body the consequences of this homosexual behavior."

-- Suggested government should "regulate homosexuality" the way it does trans fats or cigarettes, saying that countries that have "rejected sexual regulation, like with homosexuality, none of them lasted past the third generation from the time that they embraced it." 

-- Of New York's legalization of marriage for gay couples, said: "No disrespect to our Native American friends, but this is where you hang a bloody scalp over the gallery rail. You hang these four Republican scalps over the Senate rail and every other Republican senator looks up and sees those scalps and says, ‘my gosh, I’ll be hanging up there beside them if I don’t stay with this pro-family stuff.’ And that’s exactly what has to happen."

-- On God's retribution: "So I’ve got a ballot, I’ve got a vote, I vote for somebody that approves homosexuality, God doesn’t approve me if I approve those who approve homosexuality. The Bible is so good about helping us know how to vote, because what you said is exactly right. The reason homosexuality will kill the blessing and I’ll tell you why, if I support someone who supports homosexuality, it will kill the blessing on me whether I’m a homosexual or not" (see first video on webpage).

-- On gay people: "It is not normal in nature…It’s against evolutionary law. It doesn’t happen."

-- Says he doesn't care what the Supreme Court says because God has said gays are like murderers, fornicators, kidnappers, liars, etc. 

-- On marriage equality: "Messing around with marriage will affect economic prosperity of a nation because you're violating the commands of God"

-- Says of gays: "Gay means happy, bright and cheerful and that’s not what homosexuality is.”
