(The Hill) Matt Bevin, the Republican vying to knock off Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell (Ky.) in a primary, suggested Wednesday that legalizing same-sex marriages could lead to marriages between a parent and child.

Bevin, a businessman who has criticized McConnell as a Washington insider lacking conservative bona fides, said the problem with gay marriage is that it changes the definition of marriage.

“If it’s all right to have same-sex marriages, why not define a marriage — because at the end of the day a lot of this ends up being taxes and who can visit who in the hospital and there’s other repressions and things that come with it — so a person may want to define themselves as being married to one of their children so that they can then in fact pass on certain things to that child financially and otherwise,” Bevin said on “The Janet Mefferd Show,” a conservative talk-radio show.

“Where do you draw the line?”
