Rep Steve King: Gay marriage ruling means ‘you can marry my lawnmower’

Steve King.

First it was men marrying dogs, and now the US Supreme Court’s gay marriage ruling means men can marry their lawnmowers, according to Iowa state Rep Steve King.

Last week while introducing Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee at an event in Rockwell City, King quipped: ‘You can marry my lawnmower.’

King elaborated on this interpretation of the Supreme Court’s landmark ruling in a interview earlier in July.

‘I had a strong, Christian lawyer tell me yesterday that, under this decision that he has read, what it brings about is: It only requires one human being in this relationship – that you could marry your your lawnmower with this decision,’ he told the Dickson County News.

‘I think he’s right.’
