CNN anchor Don Lemon and singer Lady Gaga have been accused of riding a gay fad by radio host Peter Heck, conservative media watchdog reported.

Lemon recently told The New York Times that he's gay, ahead of the release of his upcoming 264-page memoir titled Transparent, in which he talks about his experience, becoming the third openly gay high-profile news personality behind MSNBC's Rachel Maddow and Thomas Roberts.

Lady Gaga has publicly acknowledged that she's bisexual and is a proponent of gay rights. The title track of her sophomore studio album Born This Way has been widely hailed as the new gay anthem.

Lemon's coming out and Lady Gaga's gay rights endorsements have riled Heck.

“Every time [a celebrity comes out], and we are treated to the seemingly endless litany of interviews that applaud the recently outed individual's courage and fortitude, I'm left scratching my head,” Heck told his listeners.

Heck insisted gay people should keep their sexuality private, saying “it's just kind of creepy that these proponents of sexual anarchy feel it is their civic duty to incessantly shove their unconventional behavior in front of our children's faces.”

“But beyond that, let me be blunt: there is absolutely no courage to be found in following what has become an alarming fad amongst the entertainment glitterati by joining the LGBT crowd.”

“If Lemon really wanted to demonstrate courage, let's see him 'come out' in the media as a Bible-believing, born-again follower of Jesus Christ whose faith teaches him that homosexuality is morally improper. Rather than basking in the glow of the entertainment crowd's unyielding affection, he would be immediately tarred and feathered for his draconian allegiance to discriminatory and prejudicial fairy tales coming from an ancient, bigoted book.”

“That inconsistency is what leads us to a culture where someone as genial and pleasant as Dr. James Dobson is branded a hater, while someone as vile and perverted as Lady Gaga is hailed as a courageous trailblazer,” Heck added.
