Actor-comedian Hal Sparks on Wednesday hit back at Rush Limbaugh's criticisms over two Supreme Court rulings related to gay marriage.

The court's decisions mean that California is likely to become the 13th state, plus the District of Columbia, to allow gay nuptials, and that the federal government must recognize those unions.

On his radio show, Limbaugh tore into supporters.

“It proves that we are up against people who don't give a damn about the rule of law, or about decency, or about decorum,” he said.

Sparks hit back during an appearance on HuffPost Live.

“He was making the case that all the people involved in this, it was fine, there was just straight, and then suddenly, one day, gay people just decided they wanted to get married and threw a monkey wrench in the whole thing. Suddenly, all of the sudden. That it was just a whim.”

Sparks noted that the blatant injustice that gay people faced during the early days of the AIDS epidemic, in particular hospitals refusing to recognize partners as family members, led to increasing demands for equality.

“And that was the turning point. It wasn't this flippant decision,” he said. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
