DFL Rep. Steve Simon had a very simple question during committee hearings on the anti-gay marriage constitutional amendment steamrolling its way through the GOP-controlled Minnesota Legislature.

"How many more gay people does God have to create before we ask ourselves if he wants them around?" he asked.

The House Civil Law Committee gave him his answer with a 10-7 party-line vote lines that moved Minnesota one step closer to writing discrimination into its Constitution.

Simon later told WCCO-AM's Michele Tafyoa that his comments were totally spontaneous. [LISTEN]. The video has gone viral on YouTube and Gawker
