Ben Carson Promises to Marry Horse if Gay Marriage Legalized

WASHINGTON (The Nil Admirari) - Earlier today, retired neurosurgeon and GOP presidential candidate Ben Carson promised to marry a horse if the Supreme Court ruled to make gay marriage legal across the country. The move was praised by conservative Republicans concerned about an impending Supreme Court ruling on the issue.

"In the past I have compared gay marriage to morally reprehensible things like bestiality and pedophilia. So today I say if the Supreme Court makes it okay for any two consenting adults to marry each other then I can marry a horse," stated Carson.

The former tea party member informed the press he had selected the horse. "I have already chosen my female horse bride. Her name is Hee Haw and she is owned by a close friend of mine," announced Carson.

An unidentified member of the press asked Carson what his intentions were with the horse.

"I intend to marry the horse good and proper in a church," replied Carson, who seemed at a loss for having to explain himself twice. He was whisked away by campaign staff citing "important business" shortly afterward.

Carson has been unavailable for comment since the press conference.
