President Barack Obama's anger over a Secret Service sex scandal while he supports gay rights has been labeled two-faced by social conservative Tony Perkins.

Obama on Sunday said he would be angry if an investigation proved that Secret Service agents hired prostitutes ahead of his arrival in Colombia.

Speaking to radio host Janet Mefferd, Perkins, the president of the Christian conservative group Family Research Council, linked the scandal to repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell,” the policy which banned gay and bisexual troops from serving openly. Obama signed the law which ended the policy.

“Over the weekend we saw the news of the President's Secret Service detail in Colombia and the issue of them hiring prostitutes and now the White House is outraged about that,” Perkins said. “Actually in a meeting this morning my staff asked, 'Why should the President be upset?' It was actually legal; it was legal there to do that, so why should we be upset? Well, the fact is we intuitively know it's wrong, there's a moral law against that.”

“The same is true for what the President has done to the military enforcing open homosexuality in our military. You can change the law but you can't change the moral law that's behind it. You can change the positive law, the law that is created by man, but you can't change the moral law, it's wrong. So what you have is you have a total breakdown and you can't pick and choose. Morality is not a smorgasbord; you can't pick what you want. I think you're absolutely right, this is a fundamental issue going forward because if we say, 'Let them do what we want,' what's next?”

“You cannot maintain moral order if you are willing to allow a few things to slide,” Perkins added. (The video is embedded in the right panel of this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
