Two radio hosts are worried that same-sex marriage will cause straight men to start cheating on their wives with other men.

Mat Staver and Matt Barber, of the Liberty Council, made the comments on the group’s ‘Faith and Freedom’ radio show.

The pair quoted research suggesting that gay men are more likely to have open relationships, and used it to suggest that it would ‘undercut’ fidelity in straight marriages too.

The pair claimed: “Same sex so-called marriage would undercut the norm of sexual fidelity within marriage. One of the biggest threats poses to marriage overall is that it would probably undercut the norm of sexual fidelity in marriage.

“We know this to be the case, a number of studies have shown that for same-sex homosexual males, monogamy isn’t part of the equation.

“We know that women serve to domesticate men.

“That’s not an opinion, that’s the social science that shows that women ultimately bring men into their role as father, as provider, and protector for the household and they domesticate men and that lends itself toward monogamy.”

Staver previously warned of dire “consequences” for Republicans who stayed silent on the issue of same-sex marriage.

He said: “You can’t remain silent there and expect no consequences… with regards to the undermining of marriage as a union of a man and a woman.

“There will be consequences for their political future.”
