"This is something I campaigned on. It's a part of why I'm here as a senator today," Sen. Dennis Guth said on the Senate floor Wednesday.
Guth, of Klemme, said the media has "bamboozled" the public into a growing acceptance of gay relationships and argues his family faces "health risks" because of sexually transmitted infections he said are associated with a gay lifestyle.
"The media, for the most part, has bamboozled us into thinking that having a relationship outside of the boundaries of monogamous, heterosexual marriage is positive, happy and fulfilling," he said. Guth then compared the choice of smoking to what he said was the choice of being gay.
