Bauer says recognizing homosexual couples “worse than terrorism”

Conservative Republican presidential hopeful Gary Bauer yesterday called Vermont’s recent Supreme Court decision that grants homosexual couples the same legal protections given to married couples “worse than terrorism.”

Speaking to reporters at his New Hampshire campaign headquarters, Bauer told reporters, “I think what the Vermont Supreme Court did last week was in some ways worse than terrorism.”

Bauer brought up his criticism after praising federal authorities in Vermont for arresting a woman who is alleged to have been working with a terrorist group.
