A gay couple made history earlier this month when they married one another on top of a float in the Rose Bowl parade in front of millions, sparking backlash from conservative groups -- including pastors Kevin Swanson and Dave Buehner.

According to Right Wing Watch, Buehner was upset that the float was sponsored by the AIDS Healthcare Foundation and reportedly claimed on Generations Radio that the "pro-homosexual propaganda" would "spread AIDS." However, the pair didn't stop there.

"I wonder what the Rose Bowl parade would do if we had the stoning of a homosexual along the parade just as an expression of free speech and all that," Buehner casually mulled over. Listen below:

This isn't the first time that these two have landed themselves in hot water for outlandish anti-gay comments made on the air. Following the repeal of the Boy Scouts of America's ban on gay youth members, the pair reportedly claimed that the move would lead to merit badges being awarded for cannibalism and sodomy.

In 2012, Swanson also criticized the Jim Henson Company for parting ways with Chick-fil-A over the fast food company's anti-gay stance. According to Swanson, the Jim Henson Company was "taking the sodomy route" by deciding not to do business with Chick-fil-A.
