Rand Paul Walks Back Suggestion That Gay Marriage Will Lead to Interspecies Marriage

U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) speaks during a news conference June 13, 2013 at the Capitol Hill Club on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. Senator Paul was joined by lawmakers and other groups to discuss the National Security Agency's surveillance program. Rand Paul confident that humans will continue marrying other humans.

Rand Paul, heroic champion of limited government, told Glenn Beck this morning that he's worried gay marriage will lead to marriages between humans and nonhumans — literally the world's most insulting, ignorant, and nonsensical argument against gay marriage. "It is difficult because if we have no laws on this people take it to one extension further," Paul said. "Does it have to be humans?"

Perhaps realizing how bad such backward drivel would sound to his legions of young, libertarian supporters, Paul called backsies on the comments later in the day. "I don’t think it will be with multiple humans, and I think it will be human and human," Paul clarified on Fox News

Marriage will remain "human and human." Yet another bold stance by Senator Paul.
