Even by wingnut standards, Brian Camenker, head of the group MassResistance, is one of the worst and looniest of the bigots. When he hears about gay people being in the closet, he actually thinks they’re in his closet, waiting for him to fall asleep so they can turn him gay or something. Here he is in an interview on a Christian radio show claiming that the FBI has turned gay and will now start persecuting “pro-family” groups.
Camenker: It’s unbelievable. The FBI is just unbelievable to see. They have started a Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender program on their careers website and they apparently have even gone from there to embracing the gay agenda, having a gay advisory committee, welcoming homosexuals as FBI agents, getting involved with pride events, but more than that going to gay pride events and encouraging homosexual activists to report hate crimes and working with them against pro-family groups. So this is what we’re seeing the FBI doing according to their own writings and according to the writings of the gay newspapers. We have one on our website, one of the gay newspapers in San Francisco, ‘FBI Encourages LGBTs to Report Hate Crimes,’ it is very, very frightening to see. The FBI is very powerful and they can do a lot of damage if they are out to get you…
Camenker: When an individual describes himself as being gay or lesbian, transgender or something, invariably that person is hostile to the pro-family position and is vigorous about pushing the entire agenda. We’ve seen that in the schools, we’ve seen that all over the place. We’re really scared about the FBI being this out homosexual organization.
In his fevered imagination, the mere fact of not refusing to hire gay people as agents and wanting to protect them from violence by applying the law makes the FBI a “homosexual organization.” How about that. He also claimed in that appearance that the only reason we don’t consider homosexuality a mental disorder is because terrorists changed the definition.
Homosexuality and transgenderism and all of these things have traditionally been considered mental illness issues, in fact the transgenderism still is, it was only through an extreme terrorist movement in the medical community that changed that.
Yes, I’m sure we still remember when trained psychologists blew up the Empire State Building and demanded that the DSM IV be changed in the early 70s.
