Anti-gay Propagandist Heads to Moldova to Speak Against Rights Bill

By Evelyn Schlatter on October 18, 2011 - 10:00 am, Posted in Anti-LGBT

Paul Cameron, a virulently anti-gay and roundly discredited psychologist whose membership in the American Psychological Association (APA) was revoked in the early 1980s amid an investigation that he violated professional ethics, is on his way to Moldova next week to speak against proposed anti-discrimination legislation that would protect LGBT people. The legislation will be voted on at the end of this month. It’s the third time in the past three years that Cameron will visit the country. Angela Frolov, head of GenderDoc-M, Moldova’s main LGBT rights group, told Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty that Cameron addressed university students on his first two visits, in 2008 and 2009.

Cameron was invited this time by an organization called the Alliance to Save the Family in Moldova, which refers to him as a “U.S. sociologist.” Cameron did try to be a sociologist after the APA banned him, but the American Sociological Association formally disassociated from him in 1986 in a resolution stating that he is not a sociologist and that the association “condemns his consistent misrepresentation of sociological research.” The Nebraska Psychological Association and the Canadian Psychological Association also adopted resolutions that disassociate themselves from Cameron’s research and his claims about LGBT people and sexuality.

Nevertheless, the Moldovan organization that has invited him says he “will share the U.S. experience in implementing anti-discrimination legislation” and there will be a roundtable discussion with representatives from various parliamentary committees, ministries and “other institutions of the state.”

The anti-discrimination law was proposed in February of this year, as part of Moldova’s efforts to get an association agreement from the European Union. The country, one of the poorest in Europe, is mired in foreign debt and high unemployment. In spite of that, or perhaps because of it, Moldova is proving fertile ground for American anti-gay activists.

Holocaust revisionist Scott Lively, head of Abiding Truth Ministries, traveled there earlier this year to work against the anti-discrimination bill. According to Lively, anti-discrimination legislation is “the seed that contains the entire tree of the homosexual agenda, with all its poisonous fruit.” Lively also traveled to Uganda in 2009 to speak to members of parliament there and hold seminars about the evils of homosexuality. After his visit, the so-called “kill the gays bill” was proposed, in which people could be executed for homosexuality under certain conditions.

Cameron, who founded the Family Research Institute in Colorado Springs, has been peddling dubious research and falsehoods about homosexuality for the last three decades. He has called for the criminalization of homosexuality, called AIDS a “godsend” and repeatedly linked homosexuality to pedophilia. He has also claimed that LGBT people don’t live as long as straight people and that children raised by homosexuals experience sexual violence and emotional disturbances, all claims that continue to percolate throughout the anti-gay right in this country and now, apparently, are finding new audiences elsewhere.

    @funinsnow, I’m a little lost as to how you can claim homosexuality is wrong without any religious excuse- what is wrong about 10 percent of the population experiencing intimacy differently than you do, and seeking the same sanction that the state grants the other 90 percent? Even in your wildest claims, you never hold that more than 35% of homosexuality is due to rape. Even by your horrendously flawed calculations, that leaves some 6.5 percent of the population with gay tendencies that are naturally occurring. How is their sexuality wrong?

    Out as Bi for 4 years, met my (female) fiance in a Gay-Straight Alliance, politically active, and I love wearing dresses. Anything you want to say to me personally?<3

    Lots of love-that'll scare you!

    Funinsnow,

    This took place in Texas. Have you ever been there? Are you even remotely familiar with the level of esteem homosexuals are held in that state?

    And I really do love how you seem to be claiming the beating was an appropriate response to any kind of perceived threat.

    And since you apparently profess very little knowledge of homosexual relations in America, I’m going to end our little debate.

    I really hope that any gay friends you may have are familiar with your views regarding their reproductive rights. I guarantee you’ll be incredibly popular.

  • funinsnow

    Aron,this may sound easy, but the scenario you gave of teenage gangs bashing your gay friend with bats is just odd & strange-if that happened, the press would be discussing it as it’s out of the norm. Going out & attacking or killing some1 with no provocation if it happened as your friends say it did would be a dumb thing to do. But I personally knew a gay bashing case & what I’ve found is that it almost always results because of provocation or abuse the gay did. In that case, a man was in a park with friends. A gay who was much bigger than him grabbed the man’s butt against will & made a sexual comment-maybe the gay was drunk or perhaps high.

    The man then told his 2 friends what the gay did. The 2 friends then grabbed the gay & brought him to the man who then bashed the gay. As I see it, maybe the man overreacted-but he overreacted to a crime the gay did-the gay committed assault&battery by grabbing the man’s butt against will in a park & it wouldn’t surprise me if the gay had a history of committing this abuse. I’m sure the gay may say a different story & talk of how he was bashed w/o provocation.

    As I don’t know you Aron & as I don’t know your gay friends, unsure if the bashing happened the way your friends say or if the circumstances were different. I’m sure that the teens who bashed your gay friend would say a different story as to why they did it. But regardless, criminal cases are to be judged individually by juries. If a defense lawyer in a ‘gay bashing’ case wants to bring up alleged anti-social conduct that the gay did before he was bashed, then a jury will decide if the man’s story is credible & if so, was the man’s reaction just or excess? If it’s excessive force, then what charge to convict on. Murder has different degrees-1st, 2nd & Manslaughter. I know that gay groups condemn it as ‘gay panic’ but I call it ‘gay abuse’ reaction. I don’t want gays committing anti-social conduct such as what was described & I want gays to be arrested, jailed & convicted of assault&battery if they grab a man’s butt or groin against will.

  • http://www.twitter.com/AronL Aron

    Funinsnow,

    Just a quick question: what on Earth are you talking about? I have several gay friends who have reported being ‘bashed’ for that simple fact. As an example, one of them was involved in the ‘anti-social’ act of sitting in the front row of a movie theatre. What a twit. He completely deserved the three other teens who beat him to a pulp with baseball bats.

    Also, as an East Indian, how can you speak positively of eugenic principles and forced chastity. I’ll give you two words: INDIRA GHANDI.

    Ball’s in your court now, friend.

  • funinsnow

    My turn-Aron, there’s plenty of proof that homosexual men were homosexually raped in their youth-anywhere from 20 to 33%-it is quite high. But I think gay & lesbian activities are worthless & useless & it’s best to find a cure for homosexuality no matter why it happens. It’s not based on religion, it’s based the idea that gay & lesbian activities goes against the idea of perfect people. If indeed some people take part in gay & lesbian activities because of genes, then yes, it would be a birth defect. But until a cure for homosexuality is found, it’s best to ask them to be celibate just as it’s best to ask a potential smoker not to light up.

    Also let’s end the ideology surrounding ‘gay bashings.’ Most violence against gays & lesbians happen to be domestic violence. If a gay were to hit his gay lover during a quarrel, it’s usu. won’t be reported in the press as it’s usu. not interesting unless it’s a strange case or it involves famous people. If a gay kills his lover during a domestic quarrel, then it’s usu. reported in the local press for a few days & not much after that. On the other hand, if a straight man kills a gay such as the 1998 MW Shepard case, then it makes national news because it’s out of the norm. News is about things which are strange & odd.

    What I’ll say about gay bashings is this. If a gay man is going to be anti-social such as harass a man (proposing after a man has said no is harassment) or grab a man’s butt or groin against will (assault&battery) after which the man reacts violently by bashing or killing the gay, while that maybe excessive force, the man overreacted to a criminal act that the gay did. A jury decides after hearing both the prosecution & defense if the man’s act was justified or excess & if it’s excess, then was it 1st, 2nd or Manslaughter.

    & don’t give me the scenario of what if a man sexually harasses a woman. There are many cases where straight men have been bashed or even killed after they were accused of sexually harassing or raping a woman. In fact there have even been cases where men have been accused of rape by women & were bashed or killed by the woman’s friends, etc. only to later be proven that the men were innocent. Though it didn’t happen in the 2006 Duke case, there were people who wanted to beat up & kill the men accused of gang rape & it was later proven the women lied about being gang raped-she has since been convicted of child abuse & is currently facing murder charge for killing boyfriend.

    So if a gay is going to be anti-social such as grab a man’s butt or groin against will after which the man reacts by bashing or killing the gay, it again maybe excessive, but I don’t sympathise with the gay as the man reacted to a crime that the gay did. It has been my observation that most ‘gay bashings’ by straight men are men reacting or overreacting to criminal abuse that the gay did. Hope SPLC publishes my post-your turn now.

    Funinsnow,

    Any chance you might be able to back your rather ludicrous statistics up with verifiable sources? You must admit the rape statistic does seem a little bit silly.

    And you consider homosexuality a birth defect? Are you even familiar with the definition of a birth defect? Yikes.

    Aron

  • funinsnow

    I’m not a religious person but I see something wrong with gay & lesbian sexual behaviors whatever the causes. GID is worse & I believe in abolishing sex change maimings. Dr. Paul Drummond Cameron gets condemned because he says facts about homosexuality’s harms which gay groups hate. I don’t care what the APA says-they’re ideologues. During the 1970s, Dr. Paul Drummond Cameron got credit for the studies he did which found that people who have pets live longer lives & he discussed the dangers of 2nd hand smoke. Yet when Dr. Paul Drummond Cameron discusses the harms of homo&lesbian activities, he has been a pariah.

    Why people take part in gay & lesbian activities is the same as why people get cancer-some take part in gay & lesbian activities because of child molestation impacting their sexuality later in life though homosexuality isn’t true orientation-33% of gays report being homosexually raped in youth so there is a link though some may debate how much. If a boy is homosexually raped esp. repeatedly in his youth, the likelihood is greater that he’ll take part in gay activities in adulthood vs. if he wasn’t because sex abuse can damage the mind & cause people to act in ways they wouldn’t had they not been. Some take part in gay activities because homosexuality is true orientation perhaps due to biological defect such as birth defect if it’s inborn or hormonal-though they don’t know. I was once neutral on gayism but since 2005, believe it’s best to find a cure for this no matter why it happens. Gay & lesbian activities are bad in & of themselves & sex change maimings are a sad science waste.

    Fred Phelps was a practicing attorney and did file civil rights cases, but he has never worked for the Southern Poverty Law Center. A timeline of his life shows his path to extremism.

    Jonas,

    I wasn’t even going to touch that one. I don’t think Phelps never worked for the SPLC, though I could be wrong. A cursory Googling revealed nothing.

    Can anyone at SPLC clarify this one for us?

    Thanks,

    Aron and Jeff,

    I am unsure of the claim that he worked for the SPLC. It is true that he was indeed a civil rights attorney in the past, but did he work for the SPLC, or was it another law firm?

  • http://www.twitter.com/AronL Aron

    Jeff,

    Have you heard what Fred Phelps has to say? Would you not consider that just a little bit hateful?

    Yes, at one point Phelps was a somewhat prominent civil-rights attorney. But those days are looooooong gone.

    Do some research on Phelps. You’ll find out he’s running an enormous scam. Goading people into physically attacking them and then suing the attacking party and the state for failing to protect him.

    He is one of the absolute worst people on the planet. Bar none.

    I don’t care who is Gay, people are people and will do what they want.

    But what I find odd is SPLC has Fred Phelps listed as a hater when I know for a fact that in the 1970′s Fred Phelps used to work for the SPLC.

    “@ Ruslan and Kate

    All of you are the epitome of arrogance and ignorance . Tell you what Ruslan what if English was a second language to me , that would make you a bigot , a racist , and a hater along with what ever else you Liberal pukes like to splatter all over people with opposing views .”

    Uh…what? This is a VERY simple concept. You made all kinds of claims about the guy’s 1st Amendment rights. Nobody was seeking to violate his 1st Amendment rights. I’m not sure you have ever read the 1st Amendment, but it does not mean “protection from criticism”. In fact it pretty much guarantees you will be criticized. It’s also probably irrelevant, but the 1st amendment, and in fact the entire US constitution, does not apply in Moldova.

    I also find it rich how you accuse me of “ignorance” after you speak about our “rights” which allegedly appear in the Declaration of the Independence, not the Constitution.

    “I would love to meet you internet warriors in person and sit across the table within reaching distance . I for one know this conversation would be in a lot more civil tone , not because I’m a violent person but simply because you Liberals do not have the nuts or intestinal fortitude to say this garbage in that person’s presence .”

    I can’t speak for the liberals, as I am not a liberal, but I’d only say you ought not be making such statements on the internet yourself. One day you may find yourself face to face with a very large liberal.

    I do have to challenge your claim that liberals are so weak and cowardly though. You see, I remember that kind of talk under the Bush administration, but ever since Obama came to power, you guys are running around scared and calling every “liberal” organization “thugs”, “stormtroopers”, “Hitler youth”, etc. I mean, you guys are scared to death of “community organizers” and ACORN.

    “Also to you cyber bullies that love to just rip an individual apart I’m not going to justify nor do I have to justify myself to any of you open minded so well educated stump rats but I will say this”

    Great, here comes the conservative “I’m so persecuted rant.” I don’t know about the others, but I’ve never had any formal higher education, so don’t try to play humble old small town sage.

    ” I work closely with several homosexuals in a job where we depend on each other in a matter of life and death and we get along just fine . I respect them and they respect me , we joke , talk sports ,and oh no I even ate with them , and get along just fine . I know they are gay and they know I’m straight and don’t agree with the lifestyle but you know what no one feels any less for it and the world hasn’t stopped on it’s axis yet or little birdies hasn’t fallen out of the sky .”

    Damn, it’s like you’re almost there. I mean, you still think it’s a “lifestyle”, which is scientifically incorrect, but look at it this way- if you get along with them so well, why not admit that they should have access to the same rights as you?

    “With that , take your high and mighty selves and apply what what you preach to your own lives , maybe the US might move forward a little less painfully .”

    Pain is usually associated with discrimination, unequal rights, etc. You know what would be painful, for example? Your long term partner dying in a hospital, and you are not allowed to visit them because you have no legal connection and you’re not family.

    “No need to even reply to this because you people are proof as to why this country is in the shape it’s in now , no ability to converse civilly .”

    Yeah, it has nothing to do with neo-liberal economic policies. Seriously though, if you want to look at who destroyed civility, turn on Fox some time.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Mike, one reason why conservatives are often called ignorant is because they just plain are. They are ignorant about the world, other belief systems, other religions, history, US law, the tax code, etc. And they seem determined to stay that way by deliberately limiting their intake of information to conservative sources(aka the echo chamber). They don’t become conservatives because they are stupid, they become stupid by their own volition. That is to say that it takes a lot of effort to make sure one is not exposed to facts which might upset one’s worldview.

  • kate

    Mike:

    I don’t agree with you stupid ideas, but I have to tolerate them everyday. This tolerance does not impinge your route to spout all your stupid all day long. In fact, I can’t impinge on anyone’s right to be an idiot: that’s your right.

    You don’t need my endorsement or support to go on spouting the ignorance your spout, nope, you’ll get it from other idiots like yourself.

    Now, so when homosexuals date eachother, go about their business, go to work, go to school, fall in love, fall out love, go into business with straight people, love straight people, eat, sleep….you all that stuff that gay people and a lot of straight people do too, they don’t need your support or endorsement to do that.

    In fact, they are doing just fine without your support and just fine without mine. I’ve got enough to do in my life, I just don’t have time to endorse everything I’m thrilled about. In fact, I’m straight so my feelings about being gay are pretty neutral: I’m not gay, so I don’t feel anything about it.

    Its not something I think about, its not something I wonder if I should endorse at all. Because frankly, the only way I’d ever get those feelings was if I was wondering if I was gay myself. Then, approval of my lifestyle might be important, first so that I feel comfortable engaging in it and secondly, so that those squiggly feelings I might get around people of my same sex don’t make me hate myself.

    Which is really the root of homophobia. I mean, homophobes might as well wear a giant sign that says, “I was taught to hate gay people, I think I’m gay so I’d better make sure nothing makes me feel gay — especially other gay people and making gayness ok, because then I get really confused and stuff.”

    Go ahead Mike let it go. Its alright, the people who obsess over what people do in their bedrooms are weird and sick. Those who carry that further by trying to make everyone else obsess and thus — getting approval for their weirdness are even sicker.

    That’s right Mike, you need to see a shrink.

  • Karla

    Wow! Now we’re even exporting our nut cases. Maybe he will find such a warm reception in Europe that he’ll stay.

    Oh, who am I kidding? America doesn’t have that much luck.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    One more question Mike, if you’re still able to handle all this. What do you mean by agree or disagree with their lifestyle? I mean, I’m straight, for example, so one could say that I don’t “agree” with the gay lifestyle(although lifestyle isn’t really an accurate term) in some sense. But even if that were true I fully support equal rights for LGBT people. To be more accurate, I simply don’t CARE about their “lifestyle”, it’s no more of an issue to me than the fact that some heterosexuals prefer white, blonde girls while others prefer East Asian women. It simply does not register on my list of important issues.

    Now maybe I’m not understanding your “disagreement” because it’s not the same for you. I mean, maybe you simply dedicate far more time to thinking about the gay “lifestyle” and what that entails. I don’t know. Maybe you can clarify this for us.

  • Ruslan Amirkhanov

    Mike, perhaps English is not your first language. I said “Who is trying to VIOLATE someone’s 1st Amendment rights?” Apparently you don’t know what the 1st Amendment means. “Freedom of speech” does not mean freedom from criticism. The SPLC has not called for him to be censored, and the 1st Amendment doesn’t even apply to Moldova anyway. So this isn’t a 1st Amendment issue.

    Now let’s try to untangle the mess of rhetoric you vomited on here.

    ” you have a right to support homosexuals the same as another person has a right to not support them .”

    We are not ‘supporting homosexuals’ but rather the idea that they should have the same rights as the rest of us subject to US law.

    “As far as rights go I think we all pretty much have the same rights anyway .”

    We are supposed to, under the law. Sadly this doesn’t jive with reality.

    ” We all have a right to life , liberty , and the persute of happiness”

    First of all, these appear in the DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE, not the US Constitution. Good one.

    Second, while the point is moot because these words don’t appear in the Constitution, wouldn’t liberty and the pursuit of happiness imply the right to marry whomever one wanted?

    “Show me anywhere in the Constitution where any of us have a right to marriage ”

    After your last screw-up, you really ought not be invoking the Constitution, but you know what, you’re right. The Constitution doesn’t say anything about marriage at all, actually. So I guess that means NOBODY should be able to get married in the US anymore. Everyone is hereby automatically DIVORCED!

    .” If marriage was a Constitutional right then every fat ugly person in the US would have a law suit ”

    You’re quite confused here. Having a “right to marry” means that you can marry whatever partner you like.

    .” As far as marriage goes we have the same rights already , the right to marry one person of the opposite sex .”

    Yes, and that doesn’t really work for gay folks now does it? So no, they don’t have equal rights because they are not allowed to marry and thus are not allowed to avail themselves of the legal and financial benefits of marriage that heterosexual people. Hence, they DON’T have the same rights because of this. By your faulty “logic”, black folks in the 1940s had the same rights as everyone else. They had the right to marry one person of the opposite sex and the same race.

    “Thats my 1st Amendment right and I’m sticking to it .”

    Very well but we need some clarification. Your 1st Amendment right means that the U.S. government cannot legally prevent yourself from making a laughing stock of yourself in public as you have been doing here. What it does not do, is prevent others from criticizing you for doing so. The 1st Amendment does not allow you to deny equal rights to other people.

    Once again, this whole article has absolutely nothing to do with the 1st Amendment.

  • Mike

    @ Graham

    I not referring to the government doing anything , Uncle Sugar has it’s nose in too much of citizens business to begin with . What I’m referring to is when one group calls another group ignorant , haters , bigots , etc simply because they have a different view and this goes for every subject not just homosexuality . Take for instance when Liberals were calling Conservatives haters and bigots for opposing the health care bill or immigration . Even our own ” Speaker of the House ” referred to American Citizens as ” Brown shirts ” , ” Artificial turf ” among other names , and thats just plain wrong . I personally don’t take offence if you support homosexuality , bestiality , or loving trees , I respect your right to support that and expect the same in return .

    As far as censorship goes , if refusing or not wanting person to speak just because they hold a different view is a for of censorship , at least in my opinion . The same as it would be if he were discredited as a Psychologist for holding those same views .

Then only thing I have is I don’t agree with their life style , how hard is that to understand . I feel the same way about heterosexuals also when it comes to what they do in the privacy of their own homes . Keep it in your own home and I’ll keep mine there also .

    And with regard to the first Amendment line, no one’s calling for censorship, we just think it shows a clear agenda and lack of consideration for the 10% of humanity that identifies as LGBT that this man is being treated as a respectable source. Clearly his statements are false. No one is entitled to her own facts, least of all when they are invented to spur violence against others.

  • Graham Krueger

    @Mike, that’s true, but do you have the right to use the government to outlaw it? It has no effect on you or anyone else, no matter your religious belief. This is a social matter, the government should treat everybody equally without forcing anyone to believe anything or act a certain way, but that equality isn’t going to come if a government allows people to be fired or evicted for being Gay like it does here, or arrested/executed like they tried to do in Uganda, or did in Germany in the 1930s, or in Iran, or anywhere else.

    If they want to “save the family” in Moldova, maybe they ought to start with women trafficking. According to Viktor Malarek’s The Natashas, trafficking in women and girls had reached such heights in Moldova that in rural areas families actually stopped sending their daughters to school because there was a risk they would be taken off the street.

    Anti-gay politics are common in Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union, which is made even more ridiculous due to the terrible treatment of women in these countries.

  • Kaitlin

    Getting the facts right is important in educating the public. If you want someone to speak out, you should make sure they are accredited. It surprised me that some people have this much hatred. Everyone is entitled to an opinion but its different if you act harmfully against it. Is it wrong to love? Whether it is a man or women, we all deserve somebody.

    I wish these bigoted people would learn to accept that they can’t change the identities of other people and would be best not to try.
