Kudos and boy do I miss Robert Knight!!!
Nothing too much to report today.
That situation about my corrections has been taken care of. The check is in the mail and by the end of this week, I should have the new galleys to my book. Then I can decide what to send out as an excerpt.
But extreme kudos to Jim Burroway of Box Turtle Bulletin, my online buddy at Kevin's Space and others who wrote the Eastern Psychological Association for answers about Paul Cameron and his claim to have presented a paper at their convention. It was this alleged paper from which Cameron was sending out a new batch of lies on the lgbt community.
The following is what I think is the most important portion of the response:
The submission by Dr. Cameron indicated that there was a possibility that the prevalence of homosexuals in the population had been overestimated by previous techniques. Data were presented, reportedly using a broader defined sample than that used by government agencies, which indicated that the prevalence of homosexuality in the population was smaller than had been previously suggested. The submission by Dr. Cameron was for a poster presentation, and it was accepted as a poster, not as a paper or address. Whatever the Camerons ultimately presented, occurred in an hour-long “poster session” among approximately 70 posters.
There was nothing in the materials submitted by the author for review by EPA that indicated that the work could, or would, be informative with respect to the longevity of homosexuals.
To read the entire letter, go here.
On that note, I bet the Concerned Women for America misses its former guru of all things anti-gay, Robert Knight.
Apparently under the auspices of the new ring general of anti-gaydom, Matt Barber, the group seems to have made a faux pas.
In attempt to criticize hate crimes legislation, the group actually made the case for it. Go here to see what I am talking about.
Thanks Matt! Keep up the good work!
