Paul Cameron “Calls Himself A Researcher”

Jim Burroway

February 27th, 2006

I’ve been furiously updating A Look At Paul Cameron’s Medical Consequences of What Homosexuals Do over the past two weeks. I’ve now added three new sections (parts 7, 8 and 9) for your reading pleasure. The final installments should be ready in another couple of weeks.

Meanwhile, Focus on the Family’s Dr. James Dobson has made a move that has many of his fellow conservatives scratching their heads. On a recent radio broadcast, he endorsed Colorado Senate Bill 166, the reciprocal beneficiaries bill authored by Sen. Shawn Mitchell (R-Broomfield) which would pretty much grant any adult couple living together several important rights which are now difficult to obtain.

Such rights would include decision-making powers over shared property, health care, funerals and organ donations. The couples could be any two adults who live together: two elderly sisters, a parent caring for a disabled adult child, or anyone else who might need these benefits to take care of a friend or loved one. Including gay couples.

This led Paul Cameron to launch a blistering attack on his fellow conservative, which Dr. Dobson brushed off by describing Paul Cameron as someone who “calls himself a researcher” in a recent radio broadcast.

Dr. Dobson isn’t the only conservative to dispute Dr. Cameron’s research credentials. He’s just the latest. And while many conservatives find themselves using some of his “research” in their pronouncements against gays and lesbians, most are loathe to cite him directly by name, including Dr. Dobson.
