A prominent North Carolina pastor has sparked an outcry after claiming that gay men "have to wear a diaper" because of "what happens to the male anus" after anal sex.

Pastor Patrick Wooden made the offending statement in a discussion with Americans For Truth About Homosexuality's (AFTAH) Peter LaBarbera, who organized this week's protest of the Southern Poverty Law Center after they designated AFTAH as an "anti-gay hate group."

"The God of the Bible made the human sperm, the God of the Bible designed it and it was not designed to be emptied into an area that is filled with feces," Wooden said, noting that gay sex would "most certainly mean the extinction of the human race.”

He then added, "Who wants to practice anything that is going to ultimately lead a grown man to about the time he’s in his 40s or 50s, or what not, having to wear a diaper or a 'butt plug' just to be able to contain their bowels?"
