North Carolina pastor Patrick Wooden has said gay men shove cellphones and gerbils up their anuses and knows of a man who died in diapers, media watchdog reported.

Wooden, a pastor at Raleigh's Upper Room Church, is an outspoken supporter of North Carolina's proposed constitutional amendment that would bar the state from recognizing the unions of gay couples with marriage, civil unions and possibly domestic partnerships.

Speaking on the radio show of Peter LaBarbera, the president of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH),Wooden defended previous remarks that gay men need butt plugs or diapers “just to be able to contain their bowels.”

“I do not back off or back down from my statements at all,” Wooden said.

“I was giving anecdotal examples that I am personally aware of that have happened as a result of men who have given themselves over to this lifestyle. One man past away … where what used to be his anus had become a gaping hole and he literally died in diapers, he literally lost control of himself.”

“I know of a case where in a hospital a homosexual male had a cellphone lodged in his anus and as they were operating on him the phone went off, the phone started ringing! There’ve been instances where men have put bats, baseball bats, in their rectums!”

Wooden went on to suggest that gay men are not human.

“Even the homosexual lobby knows, those who are pro-homosexual, they know that they cannot win the argument describing what it is that these people actually do to each other, the objects, the animals in certain cases, the little gerbils; thank God I'm a human being! Because if you talk about what it is that these people actually do, they can't win the argument.” (The audio is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
