SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — A South Dakota state lawmaker and local pastor, who last week said “gay sex” is “a one way alley for the garbage truck,” now says it’s more like “eight of your friends that you’re in love” taking “a dump in your bed” and then sleeping “in it all year long.”

GOP Rep. Steve Hickey, a pastor at the Church at the Gate in Sioux Falls and who has co-sponsored a number of anti-gay measures in the state House, is on a campaign to warn the public of the dangers of anal sex (between two men), and that homosexuality has been “the downfall of past civilizations.”

Last week, Hickey gained national attention for his Facebook rant in which he accuses doctors of covering up the negative medical effects of “gay sex.”

Now, in a new video interview with the Argus Leader, the same newspaper that he sent his Facebook rant to as a “letter to the editor” (and which declined to publish it), Hickey responds to Rapid City physician Dr. Kevin Weiland, who called Hickey’s warnings “not only hurtful but entirely wrong.”

“And here’s what I’d like to ask Dr. Weiland. Do you tell your patients to wash their hands before they eat? Why? Because you touch a doorknob and you don’t want to get it inside your body,” says Hickey.

“I hesitate to get crude again, but Dr. Weiland, is it OK for, you know, eight of your friends that you’re in love with to take a dump in your bed and then you can sleep in it all year long?”

Hickey also claims that gay men “have higher rates of colostomy bags” and that an article in the “Journal of Sex Research” says “the mean number of sex partners for homosexual males is 251.”

Hickey said last week that although heterosexual couples “absolutely” participate in anal sex as well, he is focused squarely on the “health of homosexuality.” Isn’t that considerate?

And earlier today, Hickey tweeted that the “gay male lifespan is 20 years less” than that of heterosexual men, repeating the claim he made in the Argus Leader interview.
