Paul Cameron, the anti-gay leader of the Family Research Institute — who last week suggested that President Barack Obama is gay, and that gays should be imprisoned because they want to rape children — now admits that as a child he felt a physical attraction toward men.
In an interview Wednesday on The David Pakman Show, Cameron, 72, acknowledged that as a 3-year-old he was raped by a man, and subsequently experienced feelings for men until he approached his adolescent years.
“As you’re probably aware, I was seduced, or raped, as a child… I was raped homosexually. Had that continued, I don’t know where I would have ended up,” Cameron said.
“I do know that the culture, which was directed toward heterosexuality, overcame whatever feelings I had — and I had some, that I acquired as a 3-year-old — and by the time I was 9 or 10, I was thoroughly interested in girls.”
Cameron also offers reasons why he thinks Obama is gay, why homosexuals want to rape all young boys, and explains that the Denver Post is a gay rights newspaper because it’s “filled with homosexual writers.”

Cameron, who still refers to himself as a psychologist, was expelled from the American Psychological Association in 1983 for failing to cooperate with an ethics investigation, prompted after the APA received complaints from other members challenging the legitimacy of Cameron’s work.
In an interview on Crosstalk last week, Cameron suggested that President Obama, who recently announced his support for marriage equality, might be gay.
He later said 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,” warning that children might be “forced to at least once experience homosexual acts.”
In 1999, Cameron was quoted in Rolling Stone magazine as saying that homosexual sex is more pleasurable than heterosexual sex, and that homosexuality will become the predominant sexual preference within a few generations if gay and lesbian culture is tolerated by society.
