Largest, US Sexuality Survey In History Shows Gays Far More Likely To Engage In Criminal Activities
LifeSite ^ | June 13, 2005

Posted on 06/14/2005 8:21:44 AM PDT by NYer

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO., June 13, 2005 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A forty-eight page study to be published two weeks from now in the peer-reviewed journal, Psychological Reports, compares extensive and newly released Center for Disease Control (CDC) data, concluding that homosexuals are far more likely to engage in illegal and socially dangerous behaviour than heterosexuals. In fact, according to the study, homosexuals are over 12% more likely to have been booked for illegal activity than heterosexuals.

Dr. James Cameron of the Family Research Institute led and penned the report, which is based upon data gathered in 1996 by the CDC.

The National Household Survey of Drug Abuse (NHSDA) asked 12,381 respondents between the ages of 18 and 59, forty-six highly personal questions, spanning their age, race, and extensive details about their lifestyle and past history. In an interview with lifesitenews.com Dr. Cameron called the survey “the largest, most elegant sexuality survey in the history of the United states”. He estimated the cost of conducting the study at $13 million.

The most remarkable thing about the NHSDA with its huge price-tag and its resultant controversial data, says Dr. Cameron, is that it hasn’t become public until now. In fact, according to Cameron the CDC, by law, was supposed to release the results of the survey, but didn’t. When Cameron got wind of it and personally hunted down the data “The National Center for Health Statistics had been sitting on it for a year.”

Even now that this data has quietly become public “The CDC has essentially neglected it” remarked Cameron. In fact, only one minor paper on the whole survey has so far been published. “It’s a shame that the largest and best sexuality study in the history of the United States is just sort of gathering dust on the shelf.”

In a press release put out by his institute Cameron alleges that the study “was withheld from the general public because of its explosive content.”

By conducting and publishing his study entitled, “Homosexual Sex As Harmful as Drug Abuse, Prostitution Or Smoking”, Cameron set out to put the data to its intended use. “You’d have to have a gob of money [to conduct such a study],” said Cameron. “We couldn’t have done it, and what is most impressive is that this is the CDC. They won’t deny that they did the study, and they won’t deny the data. Here’s the CDC, staunchly homosexual,” collecting data which proves the dangerous nature of homosexuality.

In order to make the study as scientific, comprehensive and as hard-hitting as possible, the study also compares the results of the current survey with other similar surveys, all of which, with minor exceptions, correspond to the Family Research Institute report.

The CDC itself compiled the data so as to compare the activities of those who engaged in the so-called “four recreations” (homosexuality, prostitution, illegal drug use and smoking) and those who had not.  The Family Research Institute then compared this data accordingly, concluding that “Those who engaged in homosexuality were similar to those who used illegal drugs, participated in prostitution, or regularly smoked in disturbances of public health and social order. That is, similar patterns in the differences were evident in criminality, dangerousness, use of illegal substances, problems with substance use, mental health, and health costs.”

The data for criminality indicated that 22.8% of homosexuals have been booked for committing a crime, compared to 11% of heterosexuals. This statistic held true for both gays and lesbians. “That’s noteworthy,” said Cameron, “It shows a rebellion, an unwillingness to go along with society.”

The study also indicated an increase in the use of illegal substances, driving while intoxicated, and dangerous sexual practices, including intercourse with multiple and HIV+ partners. 

Speaking on the import of his research Cameron remarked that “The scripture of the realm of modernity is scientific literature. And we want the Christian community to understand that the science is really very consistent, and highly concordant with the historic Christian position on homosexuality.”

Dr. Cameron has long been a controversial character in the sociological/psychological world for his outspoken belief in the inherent dangers and immorality of homosexual behaviour. Some have asserted that his personal beliefs have influenced his research. Cameron, however, stands firmly behind his work and the scientific purity of his methods and conclusions.

Indeed, despite the taboo which certain pro-gay institutions, including the highly pro-gay American Psychological Association (APA), have attempted to attach to Cameron, the extent of his work into the subject has attracted a great deal of attention in the last number of years and his research has been widely cited.

In fact a Wall Street Journal article from April of this year reports that the journal in which Cameron publishes his work, Psychological Report, gives the necessary nod to the opinion of the APA and increases the number of peer reviewers from the usual four to as many as twenty-one before agreeing to publish his work. Following this extraordinary and unusual level of scientific rigour, Cameron’s studies continue to be printed in the journal as perfectly acceptable work in the realm of comparative sexual research.

"Homosexual unions are totally lacking in the biological and anthropological elements of marriage and family which would be the basis, on the level of reason, for granting them legal recognition. Such unions are not able to contribute in a proper way to the procreation and survival of the human race. The possibility of using recently discovered methods of artificial reproduction, beyond involving a grave lack of respect for human dignity,(15) does nothing to alter this inadequacy."

Go figure that I'd ever defend homosexuals, but a 12% increase in criminal behavior rates is not impressive. Far, far away from what I would call "far more likely." In fact, I could think of a hundred legitimate statistical adjustments that would probably make that number disappear.

It seems to me that if a man is willing to get excited by another mans rear, and act on it, then that doesn't leave many things to fall into the realm of something they wouldn't do. Why would someone think illegal activities would be excluded?

Reality says that anything produced by this group will be universally ignored as biased.
I tend to agree; not because I believe the conclusions to be fraudulent, but because it will be so claimed by the perverts and their supporters, and hence ineffectual.

I am not sure that there can be any "impartial" venue to make unwelcome news "acceptable".

. In fact, according to the study, homosexuals are over 12% more likely to have been booked for illegal activity than heterosexuals.>>>>The data for criminality indicated that 22.8% of homosexuals have been booked for committing a crime, compared to 11% of heterosexuals.>>>>>

Which is it? I don't doubt the conclusion but it would be better if it were stated in a mathematically plausible way. Is there nobody writing who understands simple arithmetic? This sort of thing is all too common today. The comparative percentages of 22.8 versus ll would indicate that homosexuals are more than TWICE as likely to have been booked rather than "over 12% more likely". How am I supposed to grant credibility to someone who cannot even say what they mean?

Regardless, it's debatable whether "12% more likely" even qualifies as statistically significant.

"12% more likely" is bad wording.

Later in the article, it explains that 11% of heteros were criminals, versus 23% of homosexuals. So its more than 100% more likely.

All the article says is that the Family Research Institute is REPORTING the discovery of a CDC sponsored report on this survey. They seem "bemused" that the CDC has sat on these results for a year or more without releasing them.

I would like to see the underlying data, particularly the sampling techniques used to sample the people who responded to the survey, as well as the actual questions. Because the author of the report appears to have an agenda, I have a feeling that the conclusions are based upon statistical junk and/or statistical misrepresentations. For example, the article states that the "data for criminality indicated that 22.8% of homosexuals have been booked for committing a crime, compared to 11% of heterosexuals." BFD. The real issue is not how many queers vs. straights have been "booked" for a crime, but how many have been convicted of a crime. Why is conviction important? Because in the absence of conviction data, one might conclude that LEO's are more likely to arrest queers if only because they don't like queers. I would also like to know the details about the underlying crimes. Why? Because I suspect a large number of queers are arrested for disorderly conduct during acts of uncivil disobediance. In addition, "sodomy" remains a crime in many states and therefore, if queer on queer sodomy is included in the statistics, then the study also needs to include straight on straight sodomy.

Actually, that means that the incidence of illegal activity among people with SSAD is over 100% greater than us evil "Christer" breeders. I have to say, I 'm shocked. /sarcasm

Read the whole article. That statistic was misleading. What it said was, the incidence of criminal activity among heterosexuals is 11%. Among homosexuals, it's 22.8%. If the news source in question was a mainstream effete media outlet, they would have run a headline like this:

"Gays twice as likely as straights to commit crimes."

So mo's, ho's and IV drug users had similar rates of arrest to smokers?

Well, I suppose the percentage of smokers might be higher among the lower (and therefore more likely to be arrested) classes.

But if the point of the analysis is to paint mo's, ho's and junkies as being exceptionally bad, to me the presence of smokers in that group kinda blows the whole premise.

Actually, it is much worse than that--the author didn't understand his numbers. Rounding, 11% of heteros have been arrested and 23% of homos have been. I assume that's where he gets his 12%. But actually, it's a more than 100% increase in the rate of criminality as the rate more than doubled.
