Gary Bauer, president of the Christian conservative American Values, claimed Friday that President Barack Obama is “obsessed” with gay rights.

Bauer made his remarks at this week's Road to Majority summit.

“The president is obsessed with this issue [gay rights],” Bauer told the audience. “He issued another executive order about it this week. Another executive order for a narrow, special interest group.”

“He's repealed Don't Ask, Don't Tell for homosexuals and replaced it with Don't Ask, Don't Tell for Christians. Religious organizations and Christian businesses are threatened with bankruptcy, but they refuse to abandon their faith.”

“If Obama succeeds in turning us into a secular, humanist nation … the country, the republic will be destroyed,” he added. (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)

Writing at Right Wing Watch, Brian Tashman called the claims “ironic” for “a conference full of activists who have dedicated their political careers to opposing gay rights.”
