Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh on Tuesday concluded that permitting same sex marriage would effectively legalize pedophilia.

In a clip posted by Media Matters, Limbaugh expanded on a caller’s argument against the Supreme Court coming down on the side of LGBT rights.

“She was talking about contracts, folks, just so you understand,” the radio host explained. “Everybody can contract with a member of the opposite sex to marry them. But her point was that if same sex fits the bill of the contract then everything fits the bill.”

Limbaugh then took that logic one step further.

“And at some point, who’s to say that you cannot have sex with a child?” he asked.
