Discredited anti-gay ‘researcher’ Paul Cameron: I’ve been attracted to men since I was 3
I don’t know how David Pakman gets bigots to unload the most outrageous things on the air. Today’s example is Paul Cameron, chairman of the Family Research Institute. Barista Alvin McEwen has been covering Cameron for years. A little about the activist:
It was Cameron who in the 80s came up with the idea of aggressively using science to prove that homosexuality is a “dangerous lifestyle.” The problem is to do this, Cameron attained a reputation for either distorting legitimate science or distorting his own work to gain the conclusions he wanted from his “studies.” He has also been discredited and censured by many group and individuals on the left, the right, and in the middle due to his bad research techniques. Several of his studies have been criticized for such errors as having small sample sizes, showing an anti-gay bias in interviews, and not having enough responses to establish a suitable analysis.
Of course the religious right still cites his work, but are very careful not to mention him by name. Of course there are some, such as Peter LaBarbera, who will deliberately cite Cameron’s work, even though he knows that the work is flawed.
…From Box Turtle Bulletin comes a list of almost every religious right spokesperson or group who has ever used Paul Cameron’s discredited research.
The list is long. So with that in mind, now watch the video. David:
So I interviewed Paul Cameron today. In this interview, he actually admits to being attracted to men from the time he was 3. When I asked if he is gay based on his lifelong obsession with anal sex, in addition to his admitted attraction to men, he becomes clearly flustered, claims that “gay” is a political term, and that he has no interest in “pursuing homosexual relations,” which completely sidesteps and ignores whether he is still to this day attracted to men.
He also claims, earlier in the interview, that Obama might be gay because 1 person claimed to have a gay encounter, and because the Denver Post has been covering topics related to LGBT rights. (It makes as much sense to you as it does to me).
He also addresses his claim that gay men will forcibly rape all young boys.
