Conspiracy theorist Jerome Corsi argues that gay marriage will lead to the legalization of snuff films and the end of freedom.

Corsi is best known for promoting the claim that President Barack Obama is not a U.S. citizen. In a recent article, he claimed that Obama hid his former “gay life” to become president.

“If sex becomes disassociated with a Biblical purpose, then all the abuses we saw in paganism are about to return,” Corsi said in a recent speech posted online. “Because what is to prevent us from saying, 'Well, how about pedophilia?' And the ACLU has been in court arguing for pedophilia. What about bestiality? What about snuff films? Let's kill a few people because it's sexually exciting. Where is the limit?”

“And [a] society that proceeds down this path, constitutionally protects it, will so abuse and turn the Constitution inside out that there will no longer be any basis for freedom in the United States.”

Progressive radio host David Pakman disagreed with Corsi.

“Let's assume for a second that marriage equality did lead to, for example, interest in legalizing snuff films. Consider all the negative things that Christianity has led to over the years. Christianity has never been banned, because it would be wrong to ban a religion, right? … Even if it led to an interest in that, it would still not justify discrimination against gay people,” Pakman said on his show.
