New Mexico: GOP state Senator William Sharer says gays should stop "whoring," marry women

New Mexico State Senator William Sharer, in an effort to explain his opposition to marriage equality, suggested that gay men should stop “whoring” around and marry women instead.

Sharer is behind a Republican legal effort to stop six New Mexico counties from issuing marriage licenses to gay and lesbian couples.

In a blog post published Friday, Sharer noted that Alexander the Great “may have engaged in homosexual activity, but he married a woman.”

“[Alexander the Great] directed his officers to stop 'whoring' around and find a local woman to marry.”

“'It is only through blood relations that hatred and war will end.' In other words, Alexander the Great thought that marriage was about creating and raising the next generation,” Sharer wrote.

He went on to suggest that allowing gay couples to marry could lead to the end of the human race: “As marriage goes, so go the children, so goes the nation, so goes the world.”

However, Sharer does want to make it clear he totally has no animosity towards gays and lesbians.

I'm sure some of his best friends are gay.
