Utah Senator Chris Buttars is an asshat.

It seems the bigoted Senator thinks that gays are a bigger threat than terrorists:

Sen. Chris Buttars: “Homosexuality will always be a sexual perversion. And you say that around here now and everybody goes nuts. But I don’t care.”

[…] “They’re mean. They want to talk about being nice. They’re the meanest buggers I have ever seen.”

And just seconds later, Buttars draws a comparison between some gays and radical Muslims.

“It’s just like the Muslims. Muslims are good people and their religion is anti-war. But it’s been taken over by the radical side.”

[…] He also talks about gay marriage being the beginning of the end.

Buttars: “What is the morals of a gay person? You can’t answer that because anything goes.”

And finally, this is how senator Buttars refers to the “radical gay movement.”

“They’re probably the greatest threat to America going down I know of.”

This was all from a documentary being filmed on the passing of Proposition 8 in California. I suppose the Senator deserves some credit for being honest enough to not try and hide his bigotry, but he’s still an asshat.
