Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore said in an interview broadcast Tuesday that he’s fighting gay marriage because he worries it would pave the way to “marriages between men and their daughters or women and their sons.”

On Sunday, Moore ordered state probate judges to refuse to marry same-sex couples, defying a federal ruling that brought gay marriage to the state Monday.

ABC News correspondent Steve Osunsami asked Moore in a “Good Morning America” segment broadcast Tuesday whether he feared that his opposition to gay marriage would put him on “the wrong side of history.”

“Absolutely not,” Moore responded. “Do they stop with one man and one man or one woman and one woman? Or do they go to multiple marriages? Or do they go to marriages between men and their daughters or women and their sons?”
