Listen: Iowa Rep. Steve King Says Gay Marriage a Step to Socialism

Yesterday, I mentioned briefly that Rep. Steve King (R-IA) said that same-sex marriage was part of a larger socialist agenda by left-wing forces in the country.



Said King in a radio interview with WingNutDaily: "So in the end this is something that has to come with a, if there’s a push for a socialist society, a society where the foundations of individual rights and liberties are undermined and everybody is thrown together, living collectively off of one pot of resources earned by everyone. That is, this is one of the goals they have to go to is same-sex marriage because it has to plow through marriage in order to get to their goal. They want public affirmation. They want access to public funds and resources. Eventually all those resources will be pooled because that’s the direction we’re going. And not only is it a radical social idea, it is a purely socialist concept in the final analysis."

Now there's audio of the interview, in which King freaks out that Iowa has become a "Mecca for same-sex marriage" and warns that group marriages can only be so far behind.

King also invokes Rick Santorum: "And I, and I just would extend that rationale and argue this, that if marriage is something other than union between one man and one woman. If it can be, if the argument is that there’s an equal protection law, if there’s a right to same-sex marriage, if that right exists then that means Rick Santorum was right. The right also exists for any other relationship that one might argue. Then there would exist no ban, no rational foundation to prohibit incest, for example, between father and a son or a daughter or a mother and a son or daughter, for example or brothers and sisters."
