Pastor Tim Rabon of the Beacon Baptist Church of Raleigh, North Carolina has suggested that gay marriage is “not far from” bestiality, reported.

Rabon made his comments during a sermon in support of Amendment One on Sunday.

The campaign to approve the amendment, which would ban marriage, civil unions and possibly domestic partnerships for gay and lesbian couples in North Carolina, last week called on religious leaders to reach out to congregants in support of the amendment.

“Marriage is at risk in North Carolina,” Rabon preached. “It is not coincidental that marriage was established by the Lord on the sixth day of the creative week. It is not coincidental that marriage is the first institution God ever established. Before God would put government in place, before God would give birth to his own church, God set up marriage as one man and one woman.”

“Massachusetts, Connecticut, Vermont, Iowa, New Hampshire, New York, Washington, [Maryland] plus the District of Columbia have already redefined marriage to include the union of any two people. May I just insert here, that what is stopping them from refining marriage as between a person and a beast. We're not far from that.” (The audio is embedded in the right panel of this page.
