Note to Kirk Cameron: If you don’t want a fight, then don’t start one

I grew up in the Southern Ohio town of Portsmouth, Ohio (BTW, the same place BTB’s Jim Burroway called home). In my little town in the 1960s and 70s, group identifications were clear and animosity toward minority groups was in style. Name calling toward African-Americans, Catholics, gays and Kentucky natives was common and often vicious. … Continue reading “Note to Kirk Cameron: If you don’t want a fight, then don’t start one”

Cameron takes his show across the pond

Paul Cameron went to Britain last month to tell about his new research studies of newspaper clippings. The title for this talk was a cheery one: “Homosexuals Account for 29 Percent of Rape and Murder of Kids.” All of that based on reading the paper. Recently, I addressed the problems with his methodology regarding another … Continue reading “Cameron takes his show across the pond”

Paul Cameron questions VP Cheney at Salt Lake gathering

Here is my question: Is this news release referring to the same gathering that is reported on here? This Tribune article says about the gathering: “But for all the mystery, it was pretty mundane, according to those who were inside…” If indeed, this is the same gathering (same place, same time), then Paul Cameron didn’t … Continue reading “Paul Cameron questions VP Cheney at Salt Lake gathering”

SF Chronicle incorrectly links Focus and Cameron

In a curious reference to Paul Cameron, Ilene Lelchuk reported on gay adoptions in San Francisco yesterday. What is odd is her reference to Paul Cameron being the foundation for Focus on the Family’s policy on gay adoptions when she writes: Focus on the Family’s objection to same-sex parents is grounded in interpretation of biblical … Continue reading “SF Chronicle incorrectly links Focus and Cameron”

Paul Cameron: No super rights

Apparently believing the adage that bad publicity is better than no publicity, Paul Cameron excerpts his recent letter to me for a press release this morning. Titled, “Why Should Homosexuals Have Super Rights?”, Cameron begins the release by again reprising Rudolph Hoss: “Is it fair, is it just to give those who live parasitic lives … Continue reading “Paul Cameron: No super rights”

Only the gay die young? Part 8 – Loose ends

I have read the Camerons replies to me in this ongoing discussion and have only a few more things to say. Regarding Paul Cameron’s letter, I have very little to say. It does not appear to me that he really addressed any of my critiques. Instead, he convinced me that he has his mind made … Continue reading “Only the gay die young? Part 8 – Loose ends”

Only the gay die young? Part 6 – Exodus International statement

Apropos to the recent series of posts examining the recent report from Paul and Kirk Cameron on life expectancy is this action from Exodus International. Up to earlier today, Exodus had a page titled “Is there a connection between life expectancy and homosexuality?” with various assertions about the health status of homosexuals as a group. … Continue reading “Only the gay die young? Part 6 – Exodus International statement”

Virginia Law Allowed Thomas Jefferson to Free His Slaves

There he goes again. Nearing the anniversary of the largest pre-Civil War slave emancipation in U.S. history, David Barton is again claiming that Thomas Jefferson could not free his slaves because Virginia law did not allow it. He made the claim this week in a WorldNetDaily article out on Tuesday. Barton said: “They [Louisiana Democrats] … Continue reading “Virginia Law Allowed Thomas Jefferson to Free His Slaves”

More Truth Stretching: Ted Cruz's GOP Debate Claim About Obama's Oval Office Churchill Statue

Despite numerous factual accounts of what happened to the two White House statues of Winston Churchill, Ted Cruz repeated a debunked story during Thursday’s GOP presidential debate which has been around since the early days of Obama’s first term. Here is what Cruz said last night: CRUZ: Of course it does. And we’ve seen for seven … Continue reading “More Truth Stretching: Ted Cruz's GOP Debate Claim About Obama's Oval Office Churchill Statue”

Who Will Replace Fred Phelps?

Hopefully, he won’t be replaced but there are those who come close. By now, most people know that the pastor of Westboro Baptist Church, Fred Phelps, died earlier this month (March 19). Phelps was the personification of hatred toward gay people along with the church which was mostly his family members. I am sure others … Continue reading “Who Will Replace Fred Phelps?”
