North Carolina pastor Patrick Wooden is only opposed to gay men practicing anal and oral sex.

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.

In an interview with Sirius XM's Michelangelo Signorile, Wooden defended recent comments that gay men shove cellphones and gerbils up their anuses and knows of a man who died in diapers, because “where what used to be his anus had become a gaping hole and he literally died in diapers, he literally lost control of himself.”

In making his remarks, Wooden suggested 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!”

But speaking with Signorile, Wooden, who previously said that God did not design sperm to be “emptied into an area that is filled with feces,” said he was okay with sodomy and oral sex for straight couples.

“I believe the Bible says that marriage is honorable in all and the bed is undefiled,” he said.

When asked why heterosexuals can have oral and anal sex, Wooden answered: “I believe sexual activity is for persons of the opposite sex.”

“But what I am saying, and I want to be perfectly clear, and I don't apologize for it, it doesn't make me a bigot,” he added. “I don't have an unreasonable fear of homosexuals. I believe marriage is between a man and [a] woman.”
