paul-cameron-pakman.jpgCrackpot doctor Paul Cameron -- possibly the only anti-LGBT "researcher" in the United States more thoroughly discredited than Mark Regnerus -- went on the David Pakman Show today to endorse Uganda's new Anti-Homosexuality Law.

Host David Pakman summarizes the interview thusly:

Dr. Paul Cameron of the Family Research Institute said today that he not only favors the Ugandan anti-gay law which indicates prison as a punishment for homosexuality, he added that he consulted with Ugandan officials on the law, and that he would be open to the idea of the death penalty as a punishment for homosexuality. Cameron refused to answer, however, the logistics of how he would carry out and administer death sentences for LGBT individuals.

As I've written previously here at The Bilerico Project, Cameron is a certified wackjob. He was kicked out of both the American Psychological Association and the American Sociological Association for peddling virulently anti-gay junk science; the Southern Poverty Law Center calls him an "infamous anti-gay propagandist" and lists his organization, the Family Research Institute, as a hate group.

Cameron is best known for the thoroughly debunked lie about the supposed "health risks" of homosexuality -- you know, the one about how gay men, on average, live only half as long as their heterosexual counterparts. In a 2012 appearance on a Christian talk radio show, Cameron made the wild-eyed claim that "the long term goal of the homosexual movement is to get every little boy to grab his ankles and every little girl to give it a try." Last year, the Russian government flew him in to spread his anti-LGBT propaganda at a Duma roundtable on "family values."

And now Paul Cameron is "open to the idea" of killing gay people.

He may be a deranged wingnut, but he's also evil.

Pakman's interview with Cameron is after the jump.
