President Barack Obama's support for Gay Pride Month has been criticized by Christian conservative Linda Harvey, who says the president supports “risky lifestyle choices.”

Harvey, the founder of the Columbus, Ohio-based Mission America and a frequent contributor to the conservative website, asked her radio listeners to think about what people could do to “peacefully but permanently put an end” to Gay Pride celebrations.

On June 1, Obama proclaimed June Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month and hosted his third Gay Pride celebration at the White House on Friday.

Speaking on Thursday, Harvey said: “Once again this year, June is filled with cities holding gay pride celebrations. Every year I continue to challenge believers to pray about what we can do peacefully but permanently to put an end to these events in our cities. I will admit, I have not come up with the answer, but there is no question that God will help us if we ask Him. It's also terribly sad when we have a president who has once again this Spring issued a presidential proclamation declaring June as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month. In the proclamation which you can find by going to the website, the president alludes to these deviant behaviors as being part of an effort towards civil rights, which is incorrect. The homosexual political agenda being forced on America is 'stronger than hate,' the proclamation says. Once more, the president disses and dismisses those who have religious or personal beliefs that might contradict what he thinks is right, no allowance for other viewpoints. The proclamation speaks with compassion about those who are 'denied basic rights.' Again, this is an incorrect view of homosexuality, which is not a basic right.”

“There are many health care risks and elevated costs associated with these behaviors, which are not inborn identities. So the Obama administration has endorsed poor health care and risky lifestyle choices and helped to codify these into health care law. And yet, Michelle Obama wants people to eat right and exercise? It's another example of misplaced priorities and confused ethics.” (Listen to segment at
