Who does the Talmud say are the true sodomites?

The Real Sin of Sodom (According to the Talmud) 

Source: New Jersey Jewish News, Feb. 15, 2012

Rabbi David Greenstein of Congregation Shomrei Emunah, a Conservative congregation in Montclair, New Jersey, compared opponents of gay marriage to inhabitants of Sodom. "The real sin of Sodom," he said, citing the Talmud, is "to be opposed to someone deriving a benefit where their derivation of benefit causes no harm. People opposed to this bill are the true Sodomites."

I'd say this is unbelievable, but, looking at the Talmudists' track record, such an absolutely-insane, reality-inverting comment is par for the course and, sadly, to be expected. Thank you for your research and for keeping an eye on these things, Mr. Hoffman.

My initial, admittedly knee-jerk, reaction was: The Talmud is inherently Satanic; a rabbi's favorable interpretation thereof is inevitably equally so. True enough. But Greenstein's anti-theological and anti-historical perspective on Sodom brings to mind a host of qualifiers other than and ahead of "Satanic". These include, but are not limited to: "Ineptly self-serving", "delusional", and "fatuous". Take your pick...or add your own.
