Family Research Institute: Gay Rights have ‘Doomed’ Canada

Friday, April 6, 2012

Paul Cameron’s Family Research Institute knows what is to blame for Canada’s declining fertility rate…gay rights, of course!

In the group’s March memo, the FRI claims that gay rights have contributed to the “decline” of birth rates in the West and is threatening the “future for society.”

After quoting a gay publication from Vancouver, the group links gay rights to Canada’s low fertility rate: “Canada produces 1.6 children/woman. Its future is thus doomed. Onward gay rights!”

Like frogs in a kettle being slowly boiled to death, FRI frequently hears people — including those concerned about our cultural decline — suggest that the progress of gay rights is not worth a great deal of worry. After all, ‘the sky is not falling. The sun will always come up tomorrow.’ But no matter how ‘big’ or ‘small’ the crisis seems at the moment, the goal of proper social policy is to assure a future for society. As the birth rates of Western countries continue to fall, those who have supported gay rights seem oblivious to the contribution such ‘rights’ make to the decline. Even those who have ‘tolerated’ (or not vigorously opposed) gay rights do not seem to understand the implications. But now the sky is starting to fall. From Xtra, a gay magazine in Vancouver, comes this:

“the gay rights movement is shifting norms in Canada. And with that comes a message to those who won’t evolve: your outdated morals are no longer acceptable, and we will teach your kids the new norm.” (10/20/11)

Canada produces 1.6 children/woman. Its future is thus doomed. Onward gay rights!

But Iran, where homosexuality is a capital offense and gays and lesbians are brutally oppressed, has a similarly small 1.7 births per woman.

Surely, the FRI will come up with a reason to blame gays and lesbians for Iran’s declining fertility rate as well.

  1. I’ve pretty much determined that almost every group with the word “Family” in it is 100% against gay rights. Bunch of homophobes.

  3. Can someone tell those idiots to just mind their own damn business? And it’s not because of gay rights. It’s because people are getting smarter now with either waiting to have sex or they’ve gotten better with using protection (wasn’t implying anything, just wanting to shut Paul Cameron the fuck up).

  9. unfortuately, the birth rate is not declining. The birth rate is so high that it IS the threat to the future of society.

  11. Um, a decline in population growth is a good thing.

    Posted on Friday, April 6, 2012 at 9:40am
  12. Yes! It’s true! Because the Gays who make up 10% of the population have developed some type of superpower in that they can destroy the other 90% of the hetero population. I think we should clone them and send them to the Middle East! Stupid F*cks.

  13. What nonsense. Paul Cameron has been making up shit for 50 fucking years. Why anyone would listen to this kook is beyond any reason.

  15. A decline in Canadian birthrates keeps the country at 30 million and not an overpopulated mess like the US, though.

  16. It continues to amaze me all that we get blamed for…

  17. Yes, and there were tornados here in Dallas this past Tuesday. I just knew it was because homosexuals exist.

  18. The extreme left thinks that we are doomed because we elected a Conservative government. The extreme right thinks that we are doomed because we have same-sex marriage. At least they agree on something.

  19. I have found that, as an openly gay man for 40 years, all my heterosexual friends upon getting to know me immediately stop procreating. Entire neighborhoods have died out because of my very existence.

  20. We’re all doomed. Let’s just kill ourselves. (Wink wink do you think the homophobes will fall for my little trick?)
