Comedian and former "Fear Factor" host Joe Rogan apparently isn't too fond of gay marriage adversaries. He recently decried opposition to same-sex unions and called state bans on gay matrimony "so stupid it's hard to believe."

Discussing the issue on "The Joe Rogan Experience" podcast Tuesday, Rogan expressed bewilderment over how people could still oppose same-sex marriage "in this day and age."
After discussing the fact that gay marriage is legal in 15 states (Illinois became the 16th the day after the podcast was posted), Rogan couldn't contain his surprise that there are more states -- now 34 -- that forbid gay unions than allow them.
"There's states where it's banned. It's like they have banned same-sex marriages. Thirty-four of them … it's so stupid it's hard to believe," Rogan said. "It's so stupid that people in this day and age decide what two people can't do because of their sex."
And he wasn't done there.
"If marriage is legal, why shouldn't it be legal for gay people?" Rogan asked. "It's so dumb and it's such a weird thing to get behind. It's like, what's your end game here? I don't understand how … anybody would be getting behind this."
Rogan said that "outside of some crazy religious belief" he can't understand why people care -- and he shared a personal story about just how silly he believes those who oppose gay marriage truly are.
When he was 11, Rogan said he observed a friend's father become irate over gay marriage and was at the time confused about why someone would care so much.
"I remember thinking as an 11-year-old boy, like, 'Wow, there’s a lot of weak a** bi***es out there posing as men,'" he said. "Like, you dummy, what do you care? What are you, a tough guy 'cause two guys want to kiss each other?"
