NOM Asserts That LGBT Parents Molest Their Children

Author: December 9, 2011 10:52 pm

The National Organization for Marriage is noted for their stance against gay marriage. They have even convinced at least three of the Republican Presidential candidates to sign a pledge to form a commission to investigate the LGBT community. NOM is now claiming that gay parents molest and abuse their own children.

In response to the viral video posted on youtube and featured by, “Two Lesbians Raised a Baby and This Is What They Got…,” NOM promoted a piece from the “Bad Catholic” blog by Marc Barnes on their own blog on December 8th. In the piece, Barnes calls the video “false advertising” and tries to convince the reader, using false claims, that the LGBT community is bad because gay couples don’t last long, gays are only pretending that they want to get married, and that gays have violent relationships. But Barnes didn’t stop there. He went so far as to claim that gays are unfit to be parents because they molest their own children at a higher rate than straight couples.

To make his case, Barnes cites the discredited work of Peter Cameron, a psychologist who has been rejected by the American Psychological Association and many others. Here’s the snippet that Barnes quotes from a work of Cameron.

“Similarly, the children of homosexual parents are much more likely to be sexually abused. The journal Adolescence reports that a “disproportionate percentage—29 percent—of the adult children of homosexual parents had been specifically subjected to sexual molestation by that homosexual parent, compared to only 0.6 percent of adult children of heterosexual parents having reported sexual relations with their parent…. Having a homosexual parent(s) appears to increase the risk of incest with a parent by a factor of about 50? (P. Cameron and K. Cameron, “Homosexual Parents,” Adolescence 31 (1996): 772.).”

This claim has been pushed on multiple occasions over the years and has been proven false every single time. There is no evidence that proves that homosexual couples molest their own children at a higher rate than straight couples. To claim otherwise is morally and factually impotent. NOM is pushing this claim in an attempt to fool others into hating the LGBT community as much as they do. Gay couples have proven time and time again that they make good parents and provide good homes to children. Members of NOM on the other hand, have only proven that they teach hate to children, which is equal to abuse. If kids are to be taken from or denied a home with certain people, let us start with the NOM members who teach their children to hate others and advocate violence against other human beings.

  • Dear Addictinginfo,
    Thanks for the above, I think num-num is something you eat and nom nom is what you say when you eat the num-num.

    What say YOU?

    I may not have children of my own yet, but I will have you know that I would never even think of doing something so despicable to any child, let alone my Own child.. It hurts me, and brings more than a few tears to my eyes knowing that anyone could possibly believe me capable of such an act, despite the information being obvious slander, it’s harming the LGBT Community and the world. Who ever gave you the right to stop me from being a loving and caring mother?

  • Yes,.. you are correct.

    Unfortunately there are some very gullible people in this country. Many Republicans kind of like it that way because they need sponges for their mantra.

    The more educated a person is straight or Gay the less they buy this hog wash. Maybe that is why education is not high on the Republican’s list of too-does.

    P. Cameron and K. Cameron are frequently quoted in right wing fundi type churches where there are a lot of low information attendees, that are captive audiences. Remember the preacher is a man of God and he would never lie????

    Provocative assertions like these are great for fund raising.

    They pray on states like Mississippi, Alabama, Kentucky, and other
    real (HI-IQ) (sarcasm) sections of the country where low information is the word of the day – everyday.

    They plant their seeds of deception, and let it sprout from there.

    There are key areas that are an easy foot in the door.
    These people are desperate, and use this this as the last bastion of fund raising.

    Slowly but surly the public isn’t buying it. It’s just a matter of time, and time isn’t on their side and they know it.

    This is another reason the entire Republican Party is is going through such draconian efforts to win this election.

    It’s Custer’s last stand for them.

  • I was molested as a child… by my heterosexual grandfather.

    NOM is screaming false advertising about the YouTube video (saw it and was very impressed by the young man). Hey, NOM… what do you call your piece of drivel? Got news for you… using a discredited study as “evidence” is lousy science. But then again, if anything furthers your agenda, who cares about facts?

    This desired “investigation” is suspect from the get-go. If you’ll use lousy science for you hypothesis, you’re not above picking and choosing what research results you include in your investigation.

    Why don’t you make an honest effort to get to know these people you want so badly to vilify? Oh, that’s right.. you’re afraid of “contamination.”

    Seems to me that if we want to protect society, we should get rid of groups like NOM.

  • The stupidity of this claim is astounding. I have NEVER heard such drivel in my life. I know couples of the LGBT community, and I have seen their relationships last LONGER and be more faithful and loving than many in the so called “proper” tradition. As for their behavior around and with kids? Never EVER have I heard of a gay couple harming their child. They usually just so happy to HAVE children, that they tend to spoil them-NOT ABUSE or MOLEST them. Sheesh. People need to be reminded (loudly) that the psychologist being cited has been DISAVOWED and REJECTED by his own professional board. That says something about the validity of his spoutings. America, PLEASE wake up. LGBT are NOT out to destroy the world. They just want to be an equal part of it.

  • I was never abused as a child and never been raped or conversed into doing any sexual act. Whether it be gay or straight. These anti-gay people need to “take the pole out of their own eye, before they remove the splinter from their brothers eye.”
    What hypocrites! You all should be ashamed of yourselves. God doesn’t create evil, people like you do. “Satin get behind me.” You are the evil doers.

  • Jerome Estigoy

    I am so sick of the stupidity coming from the American people in this country. It is unbelievable to me what you people create because someone does not meet your standards. Shame on you. I remember when I used to be proud to be an American.
