"Homosexuals do not have a constitutional right to engage in sodomy," Fischer proclaimed, as first reported by Right Wing Watch. Noting that sodomy was a felony for the first 200 years of America’s history, he added, “It’s absurd in the extreme, it’s ridiculous, it’s ludicrous for homosexuals to claim that they have some kind of constitutional right to engage in sexually deviant behavior."
"All men are created equal, but nobody, nobody, nobody is born gay," Fischer, who also argued that Obama "displays ignorance" in his embrace of same-sex marriage and other LGBT rights and "doesn't know what he's talking about," stated. "Nobody's born that way!"
Even more specifically, the Family Research Council's Peter Sprigg has objected to the president's comparison of the 1969 Stonewall Inn riot -- a watershed moment for gay rights -- with similar moments from the women's rights and Civil Rights movements.
"We as social conservatives do not agree with the president’s attempt to link the modern homosexual movement with the women’s rights movement or the civil rights movement for African Americans,” Sprigg said. “The irony is that homosexuals already have all the same civil rights as anyone else.”
