The Gay Nineties-What the Empirical Evidence Reveals About Homosexuality
By Dr. Paul Cameron
Forward by Dr. William L. Playfair
The Gay 90s is a solid research effort that examines the science and politics that underpin the Gay rights movement. Dr. Cameron traces the assembling and ordering of the scientific community's assault on traditional values to the National Research Council just after WWI.
While many have rightly attacked the Kinsey report for having begun the process of 'homosexualizing' our culture, few realize that the National Research Council [NRC] prepared the way for and funded Kinsey. Fewer still appreciate the extent to which the NRC defended and promoted Kinsey against the scientists of his day who identified and denounced his excesses.
Cameron stands alone in having examined, line by line and claim by claim, the 1950's Evelyn Hooker studies that "proved" homosexuals were normal. He shows that, as so often happens in science, people read the abstracts and the conclusions, but failed to examine the actual details of her work. A generation of psychiatrists and psychologists have been reared on the notion that the Hooker studies proved, in a controlled test, that homosexuals were no different from heterosexuals. Cameron reveals that this interpretation was only made possible by ignoring two-thirds of the results. Yet, one can review the encyclopedias and court cases and find this erroneous interpretation presented as scientific truth.
His extensively cited review of the relevant scientific evidence concerning the etiology of homosexuality, as well as his expose of homosexual practices and the violence and child molestation which result from this lifestyle, is more complete and comprehensive than one can find anywhere else. His insights into the development of the dropping of the military ban on homosexuals come from the "inside" so the reader is able to observe how this transformation of policy came to be. As one D.C. politician noted, "this will be the activists' Bile on homosexuality."
Fifty years ago Pitirim Sorokin studied the life spans of rulers and potentates and found that they averaged only 54 years. Yet Christian saints living at the same time, eating inferior food, living in poorer housing, and often working under incredible privation, averaged 69 years of life. The detailing of the life span of another group given to sexual excess — the homosexuals — reveals the same kind of pattern. I am honored to have been part of the research team that nailed down the life span of homosexuals. I believe the relative brevity of homosexual life should end the twin calls for gay rights and the promotion in our schools of the homosexual lifestyle. The Gay 90s tells the reader how the data was collected and what it all means.
This work demonstrates the importance of empirical research in current social policy formulation and adoption. "Published science" now has a canonical place in our society. As a wise man once noted, "the race is not always to the swift, nor the victory always to the strong." Oftentimes the marketing of a scientific finding is far more important than the finding itself.
The extent to which Big Business and Big Government have promoted the homosexual agenda is extensively documented. Especially troubling are the many concrete examples of the federal government, utilizing our tax dollars, to attack religion in general and Christianity in particular.
The elite of our society seems determined to alter the nature of society itself. Contemptuous of history, devoid of principle, this elite seems determined to destroy the only value system that has actually worked in the past and still works — the one practiced by a majority of my fellow Americans — the Judeo-Christian ethic. What Pitirim Sorokin warned about in the 1956, that Western Civilization was unleashing sexual forces that would topple us from our position of world leadership, is happening before our eyes. The Gay 90s has the credibility and clarity to help America to its senses.
