New York, NY, November 7, 2008 – On November 6, Jim Quinn of the nationally syndicated radio program, The War Room with Quinn & Rose, made defamatory statements about marriage for same-sex couples. As noted by Media Matters for America, "Discussing the passage of a California ballot initiative to amend the state constitution to ban same-sex marriage, radio host Jim Quinn asserted: \'[G]ay marriage doesn\'t produce anything that the state has an interest in. Gay sex produces AIDS, which the state doesn\'t have – or should have an interest in. They should charge homosexuals more for their – for their health insurance than they charge the rest of us.\'"

Media Matters released a transcript and audio of the comments.
