RUSSIA: Anti-Gay Crackpot Paul Cameron Speaks To National Parliament

Paul Cameron, the only American anti-gay activist who rivals Scott Lively for his litany of repulsive lies about LGBT people, has testified before Russia's Duma. Via Buzzfeed:
Russia’s parliament invited an American anti-gay psychologist whose work has been widely discredited to give expert testimony where he suggested that a third of LGBTs support pedophilia, according to a participant in the meeting. Family Research Institute founder Paul Cameron, who has been censured by the American Psychological Association and the American Sociological Association for distorting statistics in efforts to block LGBT rights, spoke at a Duma roundtable on “family values,” according to tweets from lawmaker Alexander Sidyakin. Based on his tweets, the roundtable seemed to be intensifying the drumbeat in favor of laws targeting gay and lesbian parents. A pending proposal to take away their children was recently withdrawn by its sponsor, Deputy Alexei Zhuravlyov, but he has promised to re-introduce it after some tweaks are made to its wording. Russia has already banned citizens of countries that have approved same-sex marriage from adopting Russian children.
Cameron's most frequently repeated lie is his claim that gay men die an average of 20-30 years early. Even the vile Family Research Council has deleted that bullshit from their website, but just a few months ago he repeated that claim to a drooling Bryan Fischer.  We have to wonder if Cameron also told the Duma about his belief that President Obama is secretly gay or suggested that they adopt his idea to tattoo HIV-positive people on the face.
