  1. Oh for God’s sake.

    Also, for the last time, someone tell these people we DON’T have a movement. Just like there isn’t a ‘heterosexual movement’. We’re not an organised military outfit, we’re just people. I was going to say ‘like them’, but no, we’re not like them at all.

    1. I think the “homosexual movement” something to do with a flick or the wrist or hips, though I’m not very good at it myself.

    2. ‘oh for GODS sake’ – lol irony.

    3. I disagree, we are a movement.
      We need to be,to fight this.

      1. Robin Evans 16 May 2012, 11:18pm

        You can’t fight stupidity – it will out itself though… You’ll see…

    4. My Dad thought something like this – that we were all in a politically organised group (if only!!).

  2. They really are all insane.

    1. Well, they’re insane…all the way to the bank. Haters like this guy and the National Organization for Marriage open up non-profits, scare ignorant people (and the odd huge conglomerate) into giving them donations and then they pay themselves enormous salaries that they could not otherwise get in the private sector. It’s called Hate for Pay and it’s a big business in America. So just how insane they are depends, I guess, on what the definition of insane is-

  3. He doesn’t seem to need Sasha Baron Cohen to do his comedy turn, though I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry.

    1. I laughed until I cried:-)…talk about making a fool of himself – quite glorious, really – you couldn’t make it up:-0)

    2. Call Me Bruce 16 May 2012, 1:54am

      Obviously he did though.

  4. More idiocy from the hateful.

    So if Obama supports women’s rights he’s a woman?

    This illustrates their problem – they all display sociopathic tendencies because they cannot envisage someone caring about or supporting something that they are not a part of. In their warped logic only women can be bothered by misogyny, only Jewish people can be bothered by anti-semitism and so on. It doesn’t compute to them because – at some level – they are damaged and incapable of rational or empathic thought.

    1. Lynda Yilmaz 15 May 2012, 5:09pm

      If they were actually capable of rational or empathic thought, they wouldn’t actually be part of these maniac religious groups in the first place. ‘Sociopathic tendencies’ was spot on. The only reason these people have a platform at all, is because they attract all the other sociopaths and idiots who are even MORE incapable of rational thought than they are.
      I despair that there are people like this in the free world.

    2. Spot on, Valksy! Not only can that not envisage caring about anyone who’s not like them, they are also unable to conceive that people might not be like them but be equally worthy and decent. A huge lack of empathy and imagination.

      Although, having said that, Cameron, like so many homophobes, seems to spend most of his time imagining various kinds of gay sex…

    3. Yup. He’s a lesbian.

  5. Keith Farrell 15 May 2012, 4:55pm

    intelligence is not his strong suit

    1. Call Me Bruce 16 May 2012, 1:55am

      But white is his colour.

  6. joe reilly 15 May 2012, 4:56pm

    The man is an out and out syco

  7. Is he our passionately dedicated ‘contributor’ with the anal obsession, ‘Keith’?

    Seems almost bonkers enough to be …

    1. Call Me Bruce 16 May 2012, 1:56am

      Mr. Cameron has better dress sense than Keith.

      1. Blimey. A horrifying thought.

  8. “Cameron also told VCY America: “Part of the problem with the Christian Church in the United States today is that’s it’s been psychiatricized or psychologilized [sic], we seem to think that it’s our job to be counselors or do something to help people change”

    then close your dirty gay cure clinics, were not forcing you to run them, your running them because you as a catholic church are interferring, you WANT to have power over these people which is why you have “psycholigized” yourself in methods that have no basis in science.

  9. Lol,there are just no depths to which these people will not stoop.

    Surely they can see the self inflicted bashing religion is getting on this issue??

    Have they no friends who can tell them?

  10. Stuart Neyton 15 May 2012, 5:08pm

    i believer heterosexual couples should have the right to marry, it doesn’t make me straight

    1. Call Me Bruce 16 May 2012, 1:58am

      Oops there goes another cure.

  11. Paul Cameron:

    Psychologist Paul Cameron has used his own studies to claim that homosexuals threaten public health, social order, and the well-being of children. His conclusions are generally at odds with other published research, and objective indices show that his work has had no apparent impact on scientific research on sexual orientation.

    Although Cameron has been criticized in the popular press, extensive scientific critiques of his group’s research have not been widely available. Those that have been published have been brief or appeared in obscure journals. This inattention by the scientific community is perhaps not surprising, given the poor quality of the Cameron group’s data and the low prestige of the journals in which they have published. Most scientists have simply ignored the Cameron studies.

    Wider critique of Camerons discredited studies can be found here:

  12. In 1983, the American Psychological Association expelled Cameron for non-cooperation with an ethics investigation, although by his own account he had resigned from the organization the previous year. Position statements issued by the American Sociological Association and Canadian Psychological Association have accused Cameron of misrepresenting social science research.

    The American Psychological Association (APA) launched an investigation into Cameron after receiving complaints about his work from members. The APA President Max Seigel sent Cameron a letter on December 2, 1983 stating that the Board of Directors had decided to drop him from membership for failure to cooperate with their investigation. FRI has contended that Cameron had already resigned from the organization in November 1982, citing correspondence from before his formal expulsion. In a letter published in the March 1983 edition of the APA Monitor, Cameron stated that his reasons for leaving included his opinion that the

    1. organization was becoming more of a “liberal PAC” than a professional society. An APA spokesperson told The Boston Globe in 2005, “We are concerned about Dr. Cameron because we do believe that his methodology is weak.

      In 1984 the Nebraska Psychological Association issued a statement disassociating itself “from the representations and interpretations of scientific literature offered by Dr. Paul Cameron”. In 1986 the American Sociological Association passed a resolution condemning Cameron for “consistent misrepresentation of sociological research”. This was based on a report from the ASA’s Committee on the Status of Homosexuals in Sociology, which summarised Cameron’s inflammatory statements and commented, “It does not take great analytical abilities to suspect from even a cursory review of Cameron’s writings that his claims have almost nothing to do with social science and that social science is used only to cover over another agenda. Very little of his work could find support from

    2. even a bad misreading of genuine social science investigation on the subject and some sociologists, such as Alan Bell, have been ‘appalled’ at the abuse of their work.” In 1996, the Board of Directors of the Canadian Psychological Association approved a position statement disassociating the organisation from Cameron’s work on sexuality, stating that he had “consistently misinterpreted and misrepresented research on sexuality, homosexuality, and lesbianism”.

      After Cameron submitted affidavits to the U. S. District Court of Dallas in Baker v. Wade (1985) [a federal lawsuit challenging the legality of the sodomy law of the state of Texas], Judge Buchmeyer wrote in his opinion that Cameron had “made misrepresentations to this Court”.

    3. Epidemiologists Morten Frisch and Henrik Brønnum-Hansen argue that Cameron was wrong to infer reduced life expectancy from the fact that deaths among homosexually married partners in Denmark and Norway occurred at a lower median age than those among heterosexually married partners: “Because the age distribution among persons in same-sex marriages was considerably younger than that of people who had ever been heterosexually married, the average age at death among those who actually died during the observation period was, not surprisingly, considerably younger in the population of same-sex married persons.” Their own analysis found that excess mortality in Danish same-sex marriages since 1995 was “restricted to the first few years after a marriage, presumably reflecting preexisting illness at the time of marriage”.[27] Similarly, critics have argued that obituaries in gay-themed newspapers, which Cameron used to estimate homosexual mortality, do not provide a representative sample of

    4. deaths and ignore surviving members of the same generation

      Cameron has also been criticized for placing responsibility for same-sex child sexual abuse on “homosexuals”; opponents state that someone who carries out such abuse need not have a homosexual orientation with respect to other adults. Gregory M. Herek, a psychologist specialising in prejudice against sexual minorities, charges that Cameron misrepresented the literature he had reviewed and cited to support his claims, such as a Groth and Birnbaum (1978) study in which none of the participating child molestors actually identified as homosexuals, and none of those who were bisexual claimed to prefer men over women. Furthermore, while Cameron assumed all the same-sex molestations were perpetrated by homosexuals, he did not assume all the opposite-sex molestations were perpetrated by heterosexuals; he included a “bisexual correction” only for opposite-sex molestations that effectively increased the number of perpetrators described

    5. as “homosexual” without changing the number described as “heterosexual”.

      Herek noted that most of the Cameron group’s academic publications in the past 15 years have been based on a survey study conducted in 1983 and 1984. The main survey was completed in seven U.S. cities and towns in 1983. Data were later added from a 1984 Dallas (TX) sample. Most of the Cameron group’s papers have reported data from the combined samples. According to Herek, a critical review of the Cameron group’s sampling techniques, survey methodology, and interpretation of results reveals at least six serious errors in their study. Herek concludes, “an empirical study manifesting even one of these six weaknesses would be considered seriously flawed. In combination, the multiple methodological problems evident in the Cameron group’s surveys mean that their results cannot even be considered a valid description of the specific group of individuals who returned the survey questionnaire. Because the data are

    6. essentially meaningless, it is not surprising that they have been virtually ignored by the scientific community.”

      The Cameron group has published its empirical research in academic journals with low prestige and, at least in the case of Psychological Reports, with a low rejection rate and a publication fee required from authors. Given the serious methodological flaws in their survey studies and obituary study, it is reasonable to conclude that the Cameron group’s papers would have been rejected by more prestigious scientific journals. Other than the Cameron group itself, researchers have not cited their empirical studies as a source of ideas for new research on sexual orientation. Nor have scientists cited the group’s papers to support assertions about the dangers to society posed by homosexuals.”

      1. Thanks for all this – very revealing, but somehow not at surprising!

    7. Surely he could also have been expelled on the plainly obvious grounds that he is, himself, a total nutter suffering from delusions of bizarre gay conspiracies.

  13. I just want my partner to be able to visit me in the hospital when I lay there dying. That’s why I want to marry.

    And according his statistics on my shortened life, I may only have a few days left. I need a partner, stat. We need marriage rights, stat.

    We also need a few amendments banning stupidity – because that’s something that can be changed.

    1. well in the UK as it stands yes we can get a civil partnership but in that situation it is not allowed because deathbed marriages only exist not deathbed partnerships and so your partner (if you have no will) is cut out of your estate and it goes to their parents, family, the state.

    2. Gay & Happy 15 May 2012, 10:22pm

      Sorry to hear that. Good luck with it all.

      1. I’m only calculating time left based on his comments that gays have a significantly shorter life expectancy! In case he’s wrong, I’m gonna be gay and happy (too) for quite a few years to come!

  14. This is the same discredited researcher exposed by the Huffington Post:

  15. What an odious, odious man.

    1. Call Me Bruce 16 May 2012, 2:03am

      But he does dress well. Is he the guy that makes money as an “expert witness” in court, that embarrassed the court system in Florida?

      1. Yes, he was the one the Florida judge said had made misrepresentations to the court.

  16. What a bigoted idiot! If Christians had their way we would still believe that the Earth was the centre of the universe and would still burn women who use traditional home remedies rather than paying the church for a miraculous cure so it is no wonder they give this idiot airtime.

    Should he chose to be a little more intolerant he may well be able to become a cardinal and be posted in Ireland or somewhere. There is no point at all in paying this waste of space nobody any attention.

    1. Paddyswurds 15 May 2012, 7:51pm

      He isn’t of the Roman cult but a weird Texas Evangelical cult of which there are thousands in the US…..

      1. enough said. Another idiot who hopes no doubt to line his pockets by claiming that god visits him in visions etc.

  17. He’s not a Christian, he spoke nothing that came from Jesus. But if he’s looking through the bible for causes I suggest he try…Deuteronomy 22: 20-21 However, if the claim is true and proof of the young woman’s virginity can’t be produced, then the city’s elders will bring the young woman to the door of her father’s house. The citizens of that city must stone her until she dies because she acted so sinfully in Israel by having extramarital sex while still in her father’s house.

  18. That There Other David 15 May 2012, 5:57pm

    LOL. What a complete spoon. They really are coming out of the woodwork and talking nonsense now. Maybe he and Nadine Dorries can get together. I’m sure that would be a delightful evening.

    To see them come out with such drivel makes me realise that we’re actually making progress here. Anyone else think they’re on the run?

  19. What is it about all these Christians ?

    They are sex mad ,that’s all they talk about .

    1. People crave what they are not allowed. If you tell a child they cannot have sweets they want them more. They are so repressed by their religion that they begin to want normality and eventually they get into the sort of state that we see here. It is sad when you think of it.

      1. Oh I do agree ,and sometimes I can read between the lines ,and you can see it is repression that they are feeling .

        It’s like ,if I can’t have it ,then neither can they sort of Attitude .

        1. exactly. Repression is the right word here. They are taught that a god that according to them designed them in his own image failed to build in a bit of devil proofing so the devil can apparently make them feel sexual desire etc.

          People with an education understand that such feelings are natural, however an education seems to have been denied to these god loving bigots so they constantly get in a flap that their perfect god designed them imperfectly.

    2. Call Me Bruce 16 May 2012, 2:33am

      Actually there’s a lot of sex in the Bible.

  20. The most alarming thing about this is that that the Scottish Catholic Media Office (the press service of the Bishops’ Conference of Scotland) cited this man’s wiriting as the source for comments made by Cardinal O’Brien.

    The Catholic church is a serious organisation that carries great authority, however much one may disagree with some of its views. There should be consequences for whoever thought they could use this man’s writings as a support for their statements.

    1. It’s only allowed to pretend to the status of “serious organisation” because people go along with that conceit. It only has authority because sane people refuse to call it what it is.

      The catholic church is a group of bigoted medieval culture live-action roleplay enthusiasts that believes in a magic sky tyrant, his jjewish zombie son, pretend cannibal feasts and the vital importance of telling an elderly paedophile in a dress every time you feel like masturbating. It’s a bunch of clowns. In any sensible world nobody would take it seriously. It’s high time we all stopped pretending.

      1. Gay & Happy 15 May 2012, 10:28pm

        Indeed. We must stop pandering to these people for the sake of tradition, not upsetting anyone, etc. The Catholics aren’t the only ones, of course, but they’re one of the worse examples, particularly with the disgraceful paedophilia cover-up.

  21. These people are even nuttier than I realised, even for a hate group.

    Why give him publicity?

    1. Gay & Happy 15 May 2012, 10:34pm

      While I can understand your point of view, I doubt PN is the only place his ridiculous comments are being quoted, and I for one am interested. As has been said elsewhere in these comments, the clear absurdity of his foam-mouthed rantings must be doing the anti-equality effort far more harm than good. In this case at least, there certainly is such a thing as bad publicity IMO.

      Clearly this is all they have. They don’t have any facts or science to back up their stance, so these ridiculous insults, idiotic debunked theories from well over half a century ago and general schoolyard spite are all they have left. I find that extremely encouraging, so I urge you to look at this as a PN “feel good” story. We’re getting there. Things are improving at a hell of a pace and the bigots can’t stand it or do anything about it. It’s great!

    2. Spanner1960 19 May 2012, 4:46pm

      “Know thine enemy.”

  22. Robert in S. Kensington 15 May 2012, 6:09pm

    Amazing isn’t it, that these homophobes are the only ones who obsess about gay sex 24/7.

    We have our own version of the Family Research Institute, the Christian Institute which parrots much of what Cameron says. I’d like to see the CI labelled officially as a hate group.

    1. Fallacia McWhirter 15 May 2012, 6:42pm

      Not forgetting it’s clone Christian Fear, sorry, I mean Concern.

    2. Gay & Happy 15 May 2012, 10:35pm

      Good idea. A hate group is unequivocally what they are, although something tells me that they would claim not to be (after all they lie about everything else).

  23. theGentleWarrior 15 May 2012, 6:11pm

    1. Sounds like a real researched point if I ever heard one, with a lot of evidence behind the story.

    2. Even if Obama was gay, what does it matter?

    1. theGentleWarrior 15 May 2012, 6:15pm

      Well FYI Pink News removes text in XML angle brackets. Point 1 was original written with in sarcasm around it.

      So re posting will standard brackets for correction

      1. (sarcasm) Sounds like a real researched point if I ever heard one, with a lot of evidence behind the story. (/sarcasm)

      1. Gay & Happy 15 May 2012, 10:38pm

        It was clear to me at any rate. Incidentally, it’s notable that none of the trolls have commented on this story thus far (at least not at the top level). Obviously even they know they’re on a hiding to nothing attempting to defend (Paul) Cameron’s utterly ludicrous remarks.

  24. theGentleWarrior 15 May 2012, 6:14pm

    Well FYI Pink News removes text in XML angle brackets. Point 1 was original written with in sarcasm around it.

    So re posting will standard brackets

    1. (sarcasm) Sounds like a real researched point if I ever heard one, with a lot of evidence behind the story. (/sarcasm)

    2. Even if Obama was gay, what does it matter?

    1. ‘was gay’?

      1. theGentleWarrior 15 May 2012, 6:24pm

        Sorry it should probably read ‘is’.

        But was/is/not gay I really don’t care.

      2. theGentleWarrior 15 May 2012, 6:27pm

        Personally as he is married to a woman and has fathered two children with her. As evidence goes, I’m conclude/say Obama is straight.

        1. Seems the most likely, and I am sure if there had been a secret gay lover in the past or present that it would have come out at some point.

          I think Obama being heterosexual is a pretty safe bet! ;-)

          1. Gay & Happy 15 May 2012, 10:43pm

            Of course it is. As we know, the loonies have also claimed that Obama is a Muslim and that he’s not a US citizen. Anything to avoid actually debating policies reasonably (and of course losing) instead.

            I wonder what the next allegation will be? That Obama is a transsexual? Nothing would surprise me anymore with the Christian Right. They’ve hardly got any lower to sink.

        2. Seeing that half of those who accuse him of being gay are married and so far into the closet that it makes Narnia look as if it’s right ’round the corner, it might make some odd form of sense to them that married with children = so gay.

          The idiocy of these people…

  25. Brainwashed brainwasher.

  26. Well, since he fired the first shot, let me be the one to say that Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council is a homo, as is Brian Brown of the National Organization for Marriage. While we’re on the subject Ralph Reed is an obvious gay bottom. These crazies are taking out their own self-loathing on the rest of us. I’m done being lectured to by a bunch of hypocrites who hate themselves.

    1. You can always tell who is a closet homosexual by how homophobic they are.

  27. The Family Research Institute is designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Centre.

    Paul Cameron, working out of his own Family Research Institute in Colorado Springs, is the source of much of the outrageous “research” cited by religious right homophobes. His “findings” that homosexuals are disproportionately paedophiles and diseased, that the life expectancy of gays is 43 years, and that homosexuality is “contagious” have been repeatedly discredited, but Christocrats continue to cite them.

    The above article authoritatively explains the devious and false approach of Cameron that has no foundation in either science or social science.

    1. Fallacia McWhirter 15 May 2012, 6:50pm

      The antigay industry ( and it is a moneymaking industry) has to form these groups, since they believe that all the real professional associations in the world are engaged in a massive conspiracy with “the gays”, since the facts don’t match their religiously inspired bigotry. It gives them something to wave around and sound rational, whereas they are just blowing smoke.

      1. Call Me Bruce 16 May 2012, 2:12am

        Where the science doesn’t match their beliefs they try to obscure the science; it’s the same with “intelligent design”, which is creationism with a veneer of pseudo science.

        Similarly with gay people, they invent stuff, and give it a veneer of pseudo science, to fool the less intelligent.

    2. Jock S. Trap 21 May 2012, 11:20am

      It’s amazing isn’t it how many hate groups claim to be religious.

      Sure there’s irony in there somewhere.

  28. The anti-gay Christians plan is to destroy gays by using psychological warfare on them and giving them electric shocks and murdering them.

    1. We know.

    2. Fallacia McWhirter 15 May 2012, 6:53pm

      They tried all that already. They failed.

  29. The anti-equal marriage brigade are sounding increasingly desperate and insane.

    1. Increasingly? They started out this desperate and insane! I’m not sure there’s actually an further room on the continuum of desperation and insanity for them to move into…

      1. Call Me Bruce 16 May 2012, 2:16am


    2. That’s actually probably a good thing, isn’t it?

  30. Just when you thought the evangelicals were as mad as they could get… this is becoming something out of monty python-esque..
    “he’s not the messiah! He’s a very naughty boy!”

  31. From what I read the only institutionalized evidence “to get every little boy to grab his ankles” has been at the hands of the clergy.

  32. I won’t call it a new low for the Christian right (that’s almost impossible). But seriously… this is even more pathetic than anything I expected. XD

  33. Paddyswurds 15 May 2012, 7:58pm

    Just read some of this nut Camerons writings and studies and strangely he does opine that Gay sex is the ultimate and a gay orgasm is beyond description in its pleasure and makes hetero sex extreme boreathon in comparison and any boy trying it once will never go back to hetero sex.. Now I can agree with him there but what I want to know is , How does he know?……

  34. johnny33308 15 May 2012, 8:04pm

    If anyone’s gay it’s this guy…..just look at him and hear what he says….all studies show that those who care about gay sex lives are those who are hiding their own gayness….just sayin’…..they FEAR being outed! And these self-identified KKKristians are absolutley insane!

    1. Don’t want him on my/our side of the fence, thanks all the same.

  35. “Considered a hate group” There seem to be many to choose from in the Land of the Free. Many who’ll spout something to try to drag down President Obama :(

    1. Call Me Bruce 16 May 2012, 2:24am

      It’s a funny old place, where everyone seems to hate someone. And they call it a Christian Nation.

      1. and even more funny that the entire constitution of that place was based on freedom of religion in a personal sense but written in such a way that politics remain secular, yet they are perhaps the most religiously lobbied government in the world and they have used their religious freedom to sprout nothing but hatred.

  36. Should be committed.Obviously insane and gangrenous (spellcheck changed dangerous and in fact more appropriate)

  37. Is Cameron one of the pigs Obama referred to when he said, “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.”

    1. Call Me Bruce 16 May 2012, 2:26am

      No, Romney.

  38. Vo Dong Cung 15 May 2012, 9:36pm

    Roma Catholic leaders cover up child sex abuse, I suggest they all are child sex abusers

  39. So, if someone support equality they’re gay?

    Logically, if someone is vehemently opposed to gay people, then they must be a closet case homosexual.

    Same logic.

    1. Call Me Bruce 16 May 2012, 2:28am

      No it’s not. And the second example is often true.

      1. My comment was sarcasm at the stupidity of the logic the religious use.

  40. Gay & Happy 15 May 2012, 10:17pm

    “Mark my words clearly; the long term goal of the homosexual movement is to get every little boy to grab his ankles and every little girl to give it a try.

    “They will not rest until every one of our children at least gets to try, has the opportunity and maybe is forced to at least once experience homosexual acts.”

    Yep, he’s got us. Time to admit it everyone.

    Back in the real world, I don’t think demented, clearly ridiculous rants like this one do us any harm…it couldn’t be clearer which side’s arguments are calm, reasonable and evidence-based, and which side’s arguments are preposterous, shrill, desperate and would-be-highly-amusing-were-they-not-trying-to-make-all-our-lives-miserable.

    Society will look back at comments like (Paul) Cameron’s a few decades from now, and wonder what the hell was wrong with people like him. What I’d really like to know is whether he’s deranged enough to really believe what he spouts. Surely, SURELY not?

  41. Obama might be gay? This is quite awkward, seeing as nearly every republican evangelical who has been so public against the ‘gay agenda’ has well err… google it!
    I don’t really care what else they say, it’s just entertaining. But it is upsetting to see that they still clasp at anything – likening us to greedy, amorous child molesters is just vile. History will not remember these people too well.

  42. And amazingly, another high profile gay hater once again delving into his obsession with gayness. Constantly studying and citing from his mental archives filled with his ‘disgusting’ gay sex acts, karma sutra and a big giant penis, that just never goes away, no matter how much he hates it, the penis is still there. Standard homophobe, thou doth protest too much I believe

  43. What a totally queer person Paul Cameron is.

    1. Call Me Bruce 16 May 2012, 1:53am

      Your just being too kind.

  44. auntie babs 15 May 2012, 10:53pm

    even if it was true…..and they are seriously clutching at straws here….all hetrosexual laws were passed by hetrosexuals….agenda there much?

  45. I think it fair to note that Paul Cameron’s work used to be distributed here in New Zealand by the League of Rights, a white supremacist, anti-immigration and anti-Semitic organisation. What’s his excuse for that? No wonder he’s got it in for Obama…

    He nicked my suit. I think he has his eye on my job.

  47. Hahahahahahahahaha!!

  48. Paul Cameron is a man focused on homosexuality. He may have issues with his own sexuality. The haters with the loudest anti-gay vitriol tend to be closeted homosexuals. Remember Ted Haggard, George Rekers, Richard Curtis, Pastor Eddie Long, David Dredier, Larry Craig, Jim West, etc. ? I needn’t say more.

  49. My relatives supported the african americans when they were fighting for freedom and equality. Does that make them black?

    In 40 years, you will be looked at with disgust and shame. Your children will be embarrassed when they read about your hate in text books. You will be forever known as a hurdle to equality and tolerance that the US is known for.

  50. Family Research Institute is a SPLC-designated hate group, isn’t it?

  51. Extremists always do harm to their cause. Hopefully many conservatives will wish to distance themselves from these kind of remarks.

  52. Silly, silly man! Yes and I am going to be a raging heterosexual tomorrow when I wake up! Look out girls! Some of these guys as SO anally retentive!

  53. What he said about ‘boys grabbing their ankles’…..what sane person says that? What kind of mind thinks that’s a good way to talk about children?

    Creepy… Deeply creepy.

  54. He scaremongers about “our children” getting to try homosexuality.
    By the look of him and if he has any, his children must be in their 50’s or 60’s by now.

  55. ‘…But homosexuality is the one sin, or the one habit, that is 24/7. It is homosexuality all the time…’

    christian version of sharia law anyone?

    state/government shouldn’t concern itself with religious matters when legislating, especially when the so called sin has highly questionable credentials. cameron should seriously consider moving to iran

    1. ‘…But homosexuality is the one sin, or the one habit, that is 24/7. It is homosexuality all the time…’
      If only! Does he have any tips about how to do it?

  56. that lovely suit suggests that YOUR’E gay!!

  57. So is this institute a Cult of some kind. From the photo this guy looks like a Cult leader. I know all these groups are like cults but this one looks extra creepy. I wonder if he could actually hear himself would he realise what a tool he is. So if this is what they believe do they also believe that the 51% of Americans who support GAy Marriage are also Gay? Seems like our numbers are on the up people. IT’S GOOD TO BE GAY!!!!!!

    It is impossible to say what he did say. So: Soon there will be an update that Paul Cameron has “mental health problems” just like the lady in white from Nebraska. The Family (Res Inst) of Mr Cameron will apologise and will say that it is obvious that he is insane and his brother will say we must not take his words so seriously.

  59. This man really is on another planet!

  60. 18 Anti-Gay Groups and Their Propaganda
    “…a hard core of smaller groups, most of them religiously motivated, have continued to pump out demonizing propaganda aimed at homosexuals and other sexual minorities. These groups’ influence reaches far beyond what their size would suggest, because the “facts” they disseminate about homosexuality are often amplified by certain politicians, other groups and even news organizations. Of the 18 groups profiled below, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) will be listing 13 next year as hate groups (eight were previously listed), reflecting further research into their views; those are each marked with an asterisk (includes the Family Reasearch Institute). Generally, the SPLC’s listings of these groups is based on their propagation of known falsehoods — claims about LGBT people that have been thoroughly discredited by scientific authorities — and repeated, groundless name-calling.”

  61. Once again, some homophobic twit uses the “gay people want our kids to be gay!” arguement. This is ridiculous! Im really fed up with people using this senseless and idiotic idea.

    1. For me its one of the best bits about being gay.

      I can’t stand children and have the perfect excuse for avoiding them.

      Old curmudgeon that I am…..

      Grizzle Grizzle moan………..

  62. In my life experience real straight men who embrace gays physically and politically are hetrosexual through and through –
    and those who damn us and protesteth too much about what legal rights we should have are latently homosexual and crave the pleasures of same sex but simply don’t have spine enough to stand-up for themselves – that or they have been inflicted by decades of brain washing by organised superstitions –
    And who exactly are they protecting their children from – open minds?

  63. Look at the similarity in tenor, if not in detail, between this hateful paranoia and the ravings of the schizophrenic woman in Lincoln, Nebraska. The only substantial difference seems to be that the former is pumped out by an officially sane speaker to an officially sane audience. That is scary.

  64. Garry Cassell 16 May 2012, 4:17pm

    The fact is, these so called christian experts…that spout so much misinformation and hatred can only do so by the people, ordinary people, who are stupid enough to fund them…So they all belong to the cesspool of religious hatred..

  65. Tom Cotner 16 May 2012, 4:21pm

    This poor deluded man is obviously an extremely closeted homosexual, determined to prevent others from doing what he would, if following his own desires, do himself.
    He is to be pitied – but should never be allowed to spew his bigotry across the media. It is unfortunate that so many so-called “experts” here in the US are so extremely closeted. We uncover them every day – from ordinary people who vote, unfortunately to suppress others, all the way up to people in high official positions who use their official capacity to berate others and void their personal rights.
    It is sad, really –

  66. I always love the names of these organisations:

    Family = We don’t like gay people

    Research = We make it all up as we go along

    Institute = We get free cash and tax breaks

  67. Silly, silly, very dangerous bigot.
    Words like his sow seeds of doubt and hate which shows just how evil and damaging, discrimination is.

  68. Robin Evans 16 May 2012, 11:16pm

    LOLOLOL That’s the funnies video I’ve heard….. LOLOLOL

  69. Jock S. Trap 21 May 2012, 11:13am

    Oh bloody hell… what a typical childish view from a very dangerous person who should have No right to be around families, let alone children.

    Why do these people insist on saying only religion does good by spew such vile hatred? Seriously it shows them up for the pathetic idiots they truly are.
