I couldn’t make this shit up. In the process of attacking gay marriage, he gives the “you should just stay in the closet” attack vector a try… and rolls up an epic fail.
For background, US Senator Chris Buttars (R) of Utah is apparently famous for racism, homophobia, and boosting of creationism. He’s said of a bill on school funding, “[t]his baby is black, I’ll tell you. This is a dark, ugly thing.” This not long after Mitt Romney got raked across the coals for using the term “tar baby“.
The guy’s a grade-A asshat, in other words.
