A radio DJ in South Bend, Ind. is getting a lot of attention after sharing the rant of a homophobic listener who called in to express disgust at the Macklemore & Lewis song, “Same Love,” which celebrates marriage equality. U93′s DJ Artimis posted the following clip on Facebook after receiving multiple complaints from the man:

“The guy who called in about U93 playing Macklemore – Same Love and said “That song is for homos and Jesus hates gays” just called again.

This time I decided to record the call as a video and post it on this page.”

The man, self-identified as Craig, hates the song “Because I am a Christian. I am a God-fearing man, and I know that those gays don’t have no place in America.” In response, the DJ asked that he never listen to the radio station again. The clip has since gone viral:
