Peter Sprigg of the Christian conservative Family Research Council (FRC) on Tuesday criticized President Barack Obama's inclusion of gay rights in his inaugural address.

Obama strung together the gay rights movement with the civil rights movement and the suffrage movement, marking the first time a president has addressed gay rights in an inauguration speech.

“We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths – that all of us are created equal – is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma and Stonewall,” Obama said. “Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law – for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.”

Stonewall is the Greenwich Village gay bar where a police raid was met with resistance in the early morning hours of June 28, 1969, triggering the modern gay rights movement.

Appearing on CNN, Sprigg, who has called for laws making gay sex a crime, criticized the president, saying “homosexuals already have all the same civil rights.”

“The irony is homosexuals already have all the same civil rights as anyone else,” Sprigg said. “But that fact that all people are created equal as individuals does not mean all sexual behavior is equal or that all personal relationships have an equal value to society at large.”

Sprigg said Obama was “laying down the gauntlet” for his agenda in his speech.
