Janet Porter's latest anti-gay video is both hilarious and pathetic

Batten down the hatches and hold your noses. Janet Porter and her Faith2Action group has come out with another ugly video repeating the same homophobic propaganda we have heard over and over again. The video is so bad that it was initially removed as hate speech. Luckily there is a back up copy for you to peruse.

According to Right Wing Watch:

Faith 2 Action’s Janet Porter has been releasing clips of her film which warns that gays and lesbians are out to criminalize Christianity and no different than adulterers. In the latest segment, actors mock the books “Heather Has Two Mommies” and “Daddy’s Roommate” by having a teacher read “Heather has Two Cigarettes” and “Daddy’s Roommate has Lung Cancer,” while accusing a non-smoking toddler of being a “smokerphobe.”

“Homosexual behavior is up to three times more dangerous than smoking,” according to Porter’s film, “We don’t promote smoking in the schools, so why would we promote something even more dangerous.”

The film later interviews the head of the American Family Association’s Michigan chapter Gary Glenn, who favors the criminalization of homosexuality, who said that homosexuality should be discouraged in the same way we see campaigns against smoking.

“If you really care and love somebody you don’t want them to be involved in behavior that’s going to make them die earlier,” Glenn said, “if you love them you want them to stick around and encourage them to get out of that lifestyle…. True Christian compassion is trying to help people out of self- destructive behavior.”

This video pulls out all of stops, including citing that ridiculous Fox News story about the "forced middle school lesbian kiss," which I refuted.

The discredited idea that homosexuality is more dangerous than cigarette smoking is one which is derived from our favorite junk scientist, Paul Cameron

Now with Janet Porter coming out with all of these recent videos, some of you have asked just who is she. Well I could go into a long expository of how strident and nauseatingly disturbed I see her as, but I think the following video of Porter praying to God - or rather demanding that God give her and folks like her control of the media  - says it all.  And by the way, it's not a joke:

'Buster Wilson's big gay nightmare' and other Wednesday midday news briefs

African-Americans, the Last Democratic Holdouts on Gay Marriage? - Last holdout my tush! We have already crossed over.

 SAGE report looks at LGBT elders of color - Excellent report on a demographic who slips through the cracks. 

 Cleveland Plain Dealer Dehumanizes Murdered Transgender Woman - Simply awful!  

Colorado Same-Sex Couples Begin Obtaining Civil Unions - Sweet!! 

 Buster Wilson's Big Gay Dream Turns into a Nightmare - Personally, I'm spooked that a man named "Buster" has big gay dreams.  

Vivian Billings, 'The Gossip Game' Star, Embraces Transgender Son On VH1 Show - Nothing like some positive news.  

NOM's star speaker attacks me, says 'unrepentant' gays are 'perverts,' repeats belief that homosexuality is worse than bestiality - The next time someone whines about lgbts not having any 'tolerance' for opinions which brand them as sinners, etc. . .

The dumbest anti-gay 'study' you will ever read

Paul Cameron
Poor junk scientist researcher Paul Cameron. He thinks people still take his homophobic dreck and fake studies seriously:

Rush Limbaugh said Penn State's Sandusky was gay. Bill O'Reilly retorted (1) "homosexuality has nothing to do with the crime of pedophilia." Really, O'Reilly?
We put "2012 Child Sexual Abuse" through Google News from Feb 8 thru March 8, 2013. Counting same-sex adult/child sex as homosexual; opposite-sex abuse as heterosexual, the homosexual fraction for the 210 US perpetrators in Google-linked stories was: 
·         Foster/adoptive fathers: 6 of 8 (75%)
·         Teachers (including librarians, aides); males 6/17 (35%); females 3/7 (43%)
·         Boy Scouts: 3/4; Boys/girls clubs: 2/2
·         Religious leaders: Protestant 8/11 (73%); Catholic 5/5; Jewish 3/4
·         Babysitters: 3/5; Daycare workers: 2/4
·         Coaches, instructors: 5/9 (56%); Policemen, firemen: 3/9
·         Relatives (moms, dads, grandparents): 2/10 
·         Stepfathers/Mothers' boyfriends: 1/10
·         Friends/Neighbors: 1/9
·         Others: 34 of 96 (35%)
Women were 1 of 25 foreign,  22 (10%) of U.S. perpetrators (13 [59%]) engaged in homosexuality. Homosexuality was also large among foreign clerics (Catholic 4/5; Protestant 1/1; Jewish 3/3).
Child sexual abuse was excessively homosexual as only 3% of adults admitted homosexual contacts in the U.S. government random sample of 33,902.(2) In Jay &Young (3) 22% of 4,329 gays & 5% of 962 lesbians reported illegal sex with children of their sex. And in Kinsey Institute (4) interviews with 671 San Francisco gays, 23% admitted illegal sex with boys; of 288 lesbians, 4% admitted illegal sex with girls. And these perpetrators said kids were only 'half or less' of their sex partners -- the rest were adults.
Three centuries before Christ, Aristophanes noted "when they grow to be men, they become lovers of boys, and it requires compulsion to overcome their natural disinclination to marriage and procreation." "Do some homework, O'Reilly!" said Dr. Paul Cameron, who supervised the study: "Look at the empirical evidence, not pro-homosexual professional association statements."

What garbage. First of all, the premise is wrong. The gender of the victim has nothing to do with the sexual orientation of the perpetrator. Secondly, the belief that child sexual abuse being "excessively homosexual" has been rejected by several groups including the American Psychological Association, the National Association of Social Workers, the American Academy of Child Psychiatrists and the Child Welfare League of America.

Thirdly, two of Cameron's sources -  Jay and Young (The Gay Report) and the Kinsey Institute (Homosexualities) were published over 30 years ago. And both works have explicitly said that their conclusions are not meant to generalize about the entire lgbt community.

The Gay ReportWe agreed at the outset not to pretend that these percentages represented the practices and views of all gay people—they reflected only our respondents.

Homosexualities - “. . . given the variety of circumstances which discourage homosexuals from participating in research studies, it is unlikely that any investigator will ever be in a position to say that this or that is true of a given percentage of all homosexuals.” 

Is it any wonder why Cameron is a laughing stock in the medical profession?
