Evangelical Leader Gary Bauer Says 'Skewed' Polls Showing Surge in Support for Gay Marriage are 'Ludicrous': VIDEO

ON FOX News Sunday, evangelical leader Gary Bauer attacked the "radical movement" to "redefine marriage" in a debate with GOP strategist Nicole Wallace, saying that he's not worried about polling that shows a surge in support for same-sex marriage because "the polls are skewed."

Fox_pollSnapped Bauer:

“The argument that the public is overwhelmingly in favor of same sex marriage is ludicrous. 33 states have voted to keep marriage the union of one man and one woman. If it was so obvious that the American public wants to try a radical social experiment that results in children in those households, definitely, definitely, not having a mother and a father - that's what makes marriage a special institution. It guarantees that children have mothers and fathers. If the opinion of the American public was so overwhelming, the gay rights movement and their allies like Nicole wouldn’t be asking the Supreme Court to say to the American people, ‘You have no say on this issue. We're going to decide it here in Washington D.C.’”

Jewelry Company Owner is 'Mystery Donor' of Gary Bauer's Anti-Gay Super PAC: VIDEO

Mother Jones reports that a jewelry company owner named Tim Horner is funding Gary Bauer's anti-gay Super-PAC, the one behind the recent (laughably-acted) ad which claimed Obama is "forcing" gay marriage on America.

Mother Jones' Adam Serwer writes:

Incorporation papers, however, identify the director of Corporate Land Management Inc. as Tim Horner. Horner is also the president of Premier Designs Inc., a jewelry company started by his parents that touts its philanthropy on behalf of Christian causes. The address for Corporate Land Management listed in records filed with the Federal Election Commission is the same as Premier Designs'. Horner has personally given almost $50,000 to Republican candidates and causes over the years, and he's been a regular benefactor of Bauer's, according to FEC records.

In addition to the Campaign for American Values, Bauer runs a PAC called the Campaign for Working Families, to which Horner has donated $29,500 since 2004. Horner also donated $1,000 to Bauer's ill-fated run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2000. Mother Jones' calls to Premier Designs Inc. went unreturned.
