They want to make it so that a man can marry a man just like a man can marry women. And we don’t want the curse of Sodom and Gomorrah on our country, that’s why we don’t want it. If every person of either sex can do what the other sex can do, then two men can get married, or two women can get married, and if we do that we’ve got Sodom and Gomorrah and we don’t need to have fire falling from heaven on us.”
