In the latest episodes of his YouTube series, The Trews, Russell Brand attacked conservative poster boy Ben Carson, who recently compared legal abortion to human sacrifice.

Brand was more interested in Carson’s recent statements about gay marriage, however. In response to Carson saying that he’s “not going to try to stop” gays from marrying, Brand said that he “liked how people want a pat on the back for not trying to stop it.”

“Cheers, mate,” Brand said. “Thanks for not breaking into my house, coming into my bedroom, and pulling me off my partner. I really appreciate that.”

He then took issue with Carson’s comparison of LGBT individuals seeking marriage rights to people who want two plus two to equal five.

“This shows you how far away he is from the correct frequency of thought,” Brand said. “He’s comparing a social and civil idea, like sexuality, to an objective system of signs like arithmetic.”

Watch the entire episode of Brand’s “Trews” below.
