Disgraced researcher-turned-ideologue Mark Regnerus, best known for astroturfing a right-wing-funded, junk-science "study" of LGBT parenting designed to make it look like same-sex couples make inferior parents, told an audience at the hardcore Catholic fundamentalist Franciscan University of Steubenville that marriage equality will result in straight men cheating on their wives and an epidemic of heterosexual butt sex.

Regnerus said:

"If gay marriage is perceived as legitimate by heterosexual women, it will eventually embolden boyfriends everywhere -- and not a few husbands -- to press for what men have always historically wanted but were rarely allowed: sexual novelty in the form of permission to stray without jeopardizing their primary relationship.

"Discussion of openness in sexual partners in straight marriages will become more common, just as the practice of heterosexual anal sex got a big boost from the normalization of gay men's sexual behavior in both contemporary porn and in the American imagination."

Yes, that's right: if same-sex couples are allowed the freedom to marry, straight people will start PUTTING THINGS UP THEIR BUTTS -- for fun! Quelle horreur!

And from there, it's only a matter of time before the men all drop everything, don assless chaps, leave their straight marriages, and mince right on down to the nearest bathhouse. (You believe me, don't you?)

Jeremy Hooper over at Good As You was kind enough to excerpt the audio for us:

Incidentally, Regnerus also reveals during his speech that the best man at his wedding, a childhood friend from northern Michigan, came out and married a man. Jeremy has the audio of that remark as well.

If you're feeling masochistic, I've embedded Regnerus's full speech at the Franciscan University of Steubenville after the jump. Feel free to listen to as much of it as you can stand!

UPDATE: A reader reminds us that anal sex is God's loophole (NSFW language):
