Social conservatives are continuing their attack on conservative celebrity Glenn Beck for his lukewarm support for gay marriage.

Bryan Fischer, director of issue analysis at the Christian conservative group American Family Association (AFA), says Beck's recent comments on gay marriage support “people who want to use the anus for sex.”

Appearing on Fox News' the O'Reilly Factor, Beck said he didn't cover the “culture warrior stuff” on his radio and TV programs because he felt conservatives have “bigger fish to fry” and added that the government has nothing to do with marriage. “That is a religious right,” he argued, adding that he would get more involved in opposing gay marriage if it stifled a church's right to free speech.

Beck's assertion that gay marriage is not “a threat to the country” riled Fischer.

“Glenn, Glenn, wake up and smell the arsenic, my friend,” Fischer wrote at the group's website.

“It's a threat to freedom of religion, freedom of speech, freedom of association, and worst, represents a clear and present danger to children. What were you thinking?”

“Glenn, Glenn, Glenn: if special rights are given to people just because they want to use the alimentary canal for sexual purposes, no social conservative will be able to criticize homosexual behavior on biblical or moral grounds without running the risk of legal punishment.”

“Glenn, Glenn, Glenn: what about vulnerable children who are deliberately being stuck in households headed by people who engage in unnatural sexual behavior and in households where they are going to grow up missing either the love of a mother or a father or both?”

Fischer has previously called Beck a “deserter” in the “battle for sexual normalcy” for suggesting he's OK with gay marriage.
