Hidden Comments

I posted a short comment on another blog about Roxon sacking the health ambassador Warwick Marsh. The author of that blog, “Z” was reluctant to post on my blog so I've copied and pasted his full comment here.

S.H., I was going to comment on your own blog, but I see you've got moderation enabled by default. Since I don't know if you'll ever let the truth see the light of day if I write there, I'll respond here instead.

It's depressing seeing so many of the same tired old anti-gay lies misrepresented as big capital-letter-deserving "FACT" in your anti-gay screed. Your very first so-called "FACT" cherry-picks a single psychiatrist's unsubstantiated personal opinion while conveniently ignoring the official stance of every single mental health organisation that's ever actually studied the issue. What qualifications does Mr Rojas have to claim special knowledge about homosexuality which contradicts the claims of all the psychiatrists and psychologists who have made formal study of homosexuality, and concluded that there was nothing wrong with it? Dr Rojas' fabricated claims about how "studies show 70-80 percent chance that child adopted by homosexuals will develop same tendencies" don't suggest that he's speaking objectively here.

Your second "FACT" repeats the Worldnet Daily lie that Michael Glatze is now claming to be "straight". That headline was editorialisation, since no ex-gay ever claims to be straight, which you would know if you'd ever actually had any interaction with them outside of the lies you read in anti-gay propaganda. They say something like "I'm on a journey which I hope will bring me to heterosexuality eventually" or "I no longer think of myself as homosexual" (even when they're constantly tempted by sexual thoughts about men). I don't know if Mr Glatze will also be caught in a gay bar or having sex with another man the way so many other "former" homosexuals, like John Paulk, have been, but we shall see.

Your final "FACT" repeats an alleged statistic whose original source in an alleged FRC report has oh-so-conveniently disappeared from the FRC website. This is not surprising because the only source of the "1 in 3" lie is Dr Paul Cameron, whose frauds are so obvious and egregious that anti-gay groups routinely have to take down their "fact" sheets when their reliance on Dr Cameron's fraud is publicly exposed. Of course, the damage his lies cause has already been done by the time they get around to doing that, as can be seen by your gullible repetition of his lies.

Please, if you're going to make a post about "FACTS", make sure that you actually post some next time.

Let's see now....if you conform to typical anti-gay stereotype, you will now insist that your lies and fraudulent statistics are really true, but you won't make any genuine effort to substantiate them beyond repeating the insufficient evidence that you've provided as if it really is sufficient, and will start screaming something about "gay agenda" or "militant homosexual activist" at me to try to distract from your failure to provide any real evidence for your anti-gay smears.

I appreciate “Z” that you have an opinion on this topic but where is your evidence to support your beliefs?
