Homosexuality: Bad For Children


There is much credible research which shows that homosexuality has a negative affect on children. Some compelling statistics come from data analyzed by Psychologist Dr. Paul Cameron which showed

... that 8.9% of children in homosexual households became homosexual while only 2.4% of the children raised in heterosexual households became homosexual. In a subset of those studies, extracted because they reflect developed, not merely developing, homosexual orientation, Cameron found that 13.9% of the children raised in homosexual households became homosexual.1
This data clearly shows that children raised in homosexual households are about 4 to 5 times more likely to lead a homosexual lifestyle, then those raised in heterosexual households.

Dr. Cameron performed a random study on homosexual parenting, and found that children in these households are at much greater risk in a number of other areas including:2

  • Greater risk of sexual involvement with a parent. Twenty-nine percent (29%) of those raised by at least one homosexual parent reported having sex with the homosexual parent. Less than one percent (0.6%) of the children of heterosexual parents reported having sex with one of their parents.
  • Greater risk of social or psychological problems. A disproportionate number of children reared in homosexual households experienced gender dissatisfaction, and other problems associated with the family environment. These problems included:
    • children feeling betrayed by their parents;
    • divorce and single parenthood
    • children being orphaned due to short homosexual life span.
