Noted Quack Paul Cameron: Sex With Children, Animals Part Of The Gay “Sexual Repertoire”

Chairman of the conservative Family Research Institute and all-around kook Paul Cameron held a press conference (stood behind a rented podium) in which he presented what he calls “research” regarding the sexual behavior of gay people.

According to Cameron’s “study”, gay men are more likely to have sex with children and are known to have sex with animals due to their “estrangement from humanity.”

Right Wing Watch reports:

Cameron’s bases his new report on a review of gay peoples’ obituaries, that is, those that have one; Cameron writes that “many gays are anonymous—having sex without ever exchanging names—so their obituaries are ‘missing.’ Lesbians are anomalous—seldom being given an obituary.”

Cameron goes on to say that gays and lesbians are “more frequently involved in criminality” and “are more apt to smoke, use drugs, drive recklessly and get infected by their sexual activities with a host of dangerous germs and experience various organ failures.”

He adds that a reference to pets in a gay person’s obituary is a sign of his or her “estrangement from humanity,” adding that 20% of gay men “reported having had sex with an animal.”

Cameron’s work has been used as legitimate research by religious rights groups and as toilet paper by everyone else. The Southern Poverty Law Center notes that Cameron’s studies have been “rejected by both the American Psychological Association and the American Sociological Association” and that he pays to publish them in certain journals.

      He may be a whack-a-doodle, but a lot of people believe his lies. Karma is a bitch and I am her messenger. I predict a slow painful death for this one.

      Can he be sued? I wish I knew how. I would sue his ass for defamation on behalf of the LGBT Community and donate the money to a charity of some sort. These people need to be held accountable for recklessly spewing off hateful unfounded comments like this. This crap is getting ridiculous!

      Unfortunately, defamation has to be directed at a particular person or a discrete group of people. Making up lies about a group as large as all LGBT people is too large a group for any individualized harm. In addition, you’ve have to show how you were damaged, which would be difficult to prove.

      He’s the one that spread the lie that gay men’s life expectancy is 20 years less than the average. His research came from the ages in the obituaries in gay newspapers in large cities during the height of the AIDS crisis. That lie is still being perpetuated by the idiots on the right today.

      Even for his stuff, the part about obituaries doesn’t make sense. How does anonymous *sex* mean not getting an obituary when you die?

      — “Cameron bases his new report on a review of gay peoples’ obituaries.”

      I studied hundreds of obituaries of heterosexual people and I’ve discovered that in 100% of the cases, THEY ALL DIED! So, there’s your proof that heterosexuality is fatal!

      This dude has got to go. I mean, all normal people know he’s an imbecile, but religious whackos will take what he says as truth.

      My belief that conservatism has some value is plummeting fast now-a-days.

      The junk comments that have been coming forth lately from Gay obsessed conservatives is amazing.
      ————————————–
      Great comments from above —

      Houseplants …….lol……cute…..

      He may be a whack-a-doodle, but a lot of people believe his lies……that’s true, sadly.

      Can he be sued? I wish I knew how……it’s a shame it can’t be easy to do because that would curtail their foolish mouths.

      The best one —

      Don’t sue him – let him talk. He makes him and his ilk look more stupid the more they open their mouths.

      I wonder how he explains that most convicted pedophiles are heterosexual men? I guess I must not be gay since I’ve never had sex with children or animals.
      As far as self destructive behavior of gays, I would say that is more a reflection of self esteem issues that stem from being part of a marginalized community that is vilified by people such as Paul Cameron. This man is just pure evil.

      I am always wary of “family values” hucksters who are obsessed with The Gays.
      These allegedly hetero moral scolds always mention sex with animals. Repression yields bizarre imagination and bitter personality.
