Paul Cameron: A Fool In Moscow

Jim Burroway

June 18th, 2008

Cameron in MoscowMonday we warned that Paul Cameron was to speak yesterday before the sociology faculty of Moscow State University. Now we have a report of what he told that audience. Not surprisingly, it’s the same claptrap he’s been peddling here in the U.S.

In this glowing account of his talk (they describe him as a “famous” or “renowned” scientist three times), Cameron repeats the most chilling line of his standard stump speech. He contends that gays and lesbians don’t produce children and they allegedly cost society more than they produce. In recent writings where he pursues this line of reasoning, he concludes that gays and lesbians lead parasitic lives — with all of its implications and deserved consequences. This poor translation doesn’t reveal that he actually repeated the term “parasitic lives”, but that is an integral part of his speech. In fact, we have heard it very recently.

Cameron also promoted his arsenal of discredited “studies,” claiming 20-40% of child molestations by foster parents in Illinois were done by gay people, and that gays and lesbians are much more prone to drug abuse and diseases. But his deceitful misuse of science has earned him denunciations and censure from by every professional organization he has come in contact with.

Cameron claimed that how Russia deals with homosexuality will determine the fate of Western civilization and asks, “Do you want to be the same fools as us?” No doubt, Cameron believes that Russia could serve as a laboratory to test Cameron’s Nazi-esque solution for homosexuality.

UPDATE: Tomorrow Cameron will speak at a round table sponsored by the Russian Orthodox Church.

This man – or I should say person since the word “man” doesn’t really fit, is one of the worst the human race has to offer. Looking at him from the outside, he would be considered a pariah feeding off the weak minded and bolstered by the egomaniacal. power hungry caste that got the world into the mess it’s in now. Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. He will self-destruct on his own.

I’m still amazed that the MGU Sociology Department arranged this. My college (Middlebury) used to have its Moscow program there, and we worked with this buffoon Dobrenkov!

Cameron’s now being quoted right and left. Among the frightening statistics he quotes: a Canadian study that finds gay people are more likely to be murdered, and a California study that finds higher rates of suicide. Homophobes like Cameron are doing a lot to help those statistics.
