Paul Cameron

An appeals court panel in Poland has ruled that the Polish gay advocacy organization, Pracownia Różnorodności, defamed Paul Cameron and must publish an apology. So much for the integrity of the court system and scientific inquiry in Poland.

 “I am interested in whether the gays will apologize as widely as they
defamed me,” he told LiteSiteNews. “It is good to finally get justice
in a court of law. I am so tired of gays’ lies being taken as truth.”

The chutzpah of this guy to claim that gays are the liars. 

Paul Cameron is an anti-gay crackpot — and a liar. He was expelled from the American Psychological Association for failing to cooperate with an ethics investigation. Cameron’s “scientific method” has included conclusions based on a survey of obituaries. (Cameron claims that gays have a diminished life expectancy of 20 years). Cameron testified in court that gays are 43 times more likely to commit crimes than the general population. The judge in that case wrote in his opinion that Cameron had engaged in “fraud” and “misrepresentations to this Court.”

In 1985, the American Sociological Association (ASA) adopted a resolution which asserted that “Dr. Paul Cameron has consistently misinterpreted and misrepresented sociological research on sexuality, homosexuality, and lesbianism” and noted that “Dr. Paul Cameron has repeatedly campaigned for the abrogation of the civil rights of lesbians and gay men, substantiating his call on the basis of his distorted interpretation of this research.” That’s more than 30 years ago when the stature of gay people was considerably different from what it is today.

In 1996: “The Canadian Psychological Association takes the position that Dr. Paul Cameron has consistently misinterpreted and misrepresented research on sexuality, homosexuality, and lesbianism and thus, it formally disassociates itself from the representation and interpretations of scientific literature in his writings and public statements on sexuality.”

There is much, much more but suffice it to say that Cameron’s Family Research Institute is designated a Hate Group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
