Sullivan insists he was deeply troubled by the “behavior” of the same-sex couples, claiming they were ruining the ceremony for everyone else (about 300 people in all, it appeared). “The behavior I’m taking about is they were hugging and kissing and licking each other’s faces, acting like, you know, like – I don’t even know if animals act like that. They were very, I think, disturbing and almost animalistic there, a couple of them. They were trying to make a display of what they call, I guess, affection. It wasn’t affection to me. It was almost assault.” “I didn’t even look at them anymore because they were embarrassing to me and a whole lot of other people. I don’t hate homosexuals, but I hate homosexuality, I don’t mind saying so. And I think I have a right to say that, don’t I? I think it’s wrong and not of God. I didn’t ask them to leave, but I will say this: I would have been glad if they had.”– Michael Barajas
