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 have speculated about who could replace Phelps so this might not break much new ground. However, I thought of this list while reading about Martin Ssempa's march to celebrate … [Read more...]

Based on Biased Reading of New Mortality Study, Paul Cameron Gives Sen. Portman Parenting Advice

In this month's edition of the International Journal of Epidemiology, Morten Frisch and Jacob Simonsen reported a new study of mortality in Denmark.

SPLC myth #4: Homosexuals don’t live nearly as long as heterosexuals

As anticipated, the groups identified by the Southern Poverty Law Center as "hate groups" have reacted with defensive distraction. Instead of responding directly to the charges made by the SPLC, they have organized a significant effort to change the subject. Called Start Debating/Stop Hating, the website   consists of endorsements from some prominent conservative activists, politicians and ministers. The website also asks visitors to sign a petition which reads:"We, the undersigned, stand in so … [Read more...]

Homosexuality: we can still avoid foreign bad press – removed from Ugandan website

UPDATE: The link was changed and the article is still available on the Uganda Media Centre.The following article was posted briefly on the official Uganda Media Centre and then removed late the same day. Here the cache version which won't last long. I have a saved version as well.

My Genes Made Me Do It and brain plasticity

Just a postscript to my earlier posts on brain plasticity and sexual orientation…Neil Whitehead first authored his signature work, My Genes Made Me Do It in 1999. Now he maintains the book on his website saying that “It is under constant review to keep it up-to-date so readers can be asssured (sic) of its on-going relevance.”In chapter 8, on page 6, Whitehead recommends Norman Doidge’s book on brain plasticity. He takes some of the same liberties with Doidge’s book that he does in the Ang … [Read more...]

Paul Cameron to appear in Sacha Baron Cohen’s “Bruno”

This may make it worth the price of admission.Paul Cameron - yes, that Paul Cameron - will be in Cohen's new film, "Bruno", out Friday.

One didn't even know he was in the film until The Post phoned.Victim: Dr. Paul Cam … [Read more...]

In that post, I reported that Mr. Lively's foundation, the Pro-Family Charitable Trust chose NARTH as one of the first recipients of grant funds.While the amounts are not large, Lively's organization has funded other groups, including Paul Cameron's Family Research Institute. … [Read more...]
