In October 2007, country music singer John Rich, one half of Big & Rich, sparked controversy when he called homosexuality “unnatural” and compared same-sex marriage to incest:

You can call me a radical, but how can you tell an aunt that she can’t marry her nephew if they are really in love and sharing the bills? How can you tell them they can’t get married, but something else that’s unnatural can happen?

Rich has since apologized for the comments, which is apparently good enough for Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who will appear with Rich at a Nashville’s legendary Ryman Auditorium this afternoon.
