DR J SHOW AUDIO: Removed Book! Talk with the Author of The Health Hazards of Homosexuality

Amazon banned this book, so we wanted to talk to the author and find out what was more important than the right to press.

Brian Camenker has been the Director of Mass Resistance from its founding. A leading pro-family activist organization, MassResistance provides the information and guidance people need to confront assaults on the traditional family, school children, and the moral foundation of society. Based in Massachusetts, they have supporters and activists in all 50 states, Puerto Rico, and several foreign countries.

Listen
This is an audio podcast of The Dr J Show. Full video episode is available here.

Brian Camenker has been interviewed by American Family Radio (with Sandy Rios, Janet Mefferd, Bryan Fischer, Charlie Butts), Michael Brown (Line of Fire), Cherilyn Bacon Eagar (Red State Talk Radio), RoadKill Radio (British Columbia), and dozens of other radio shows, TV stations, and newspapers around the world. The organization's articles have appeared in American Thinker, Salvo Magazine, BarbWire, LifeSiteNews, The Massachusetts News, and The Jewish Advocate. In earlier years (when the mainstream media still reported on these issues) we were featured in the NBC Nightly News, CNN, CBS, ABC Evening News, MSNBC, National Public Radio, New York Times, and Fox News (O’Reilly Factor, Hannity & Colmes, and America’s Newsroom with Megyn Kelly).

More about MassResistance below the cut.


MassResistance was founded in 1995 as Parents’ Rights Coalition. Since we were in the first state to see homosexual activism in the schools and “gay marriage,” we thoroughly understood the threat of sexual radicalism, curtailed freedom of speech, uneven application of the law, judicial activism, and post-constitutional government. We adopted the name MassResistance in 2006 when our role as the true resistance to tyrannical government became clear.

Boston Herald columnist Howie Carr once described us as a “hardcore pro-family group.” We cover issues and events other conservative groups are afraid to touch. We don’t compromise with the Left. We provide analysis so the average person understands what’s really happening. And we give citizens and activists everywhere the tools and strategy to effectively confront the anti-family forces against them.

In contrast, rather than being truthful and confrontational, too many pro-family groups want to be seen as “reasonable" and “not extreme." They tend to "fight" by writing commentary, re-posting shocking articles, and putting up a polite opposition to the latest left-wing lunacy. So they don't accomplish much.

But MassResistance focuses on exposing the harsh truths. Our two published books provide examples: In 2011 we exposed former Governor Mitt Romney’s soft record towards homosexuality, along with his unconstitutional implementation of “gay marriage.” In 2017, we published The Health Hazards of Homosexuality, which has been called a tour de force by the president of the American College of Pediatricians.

DR J SHOW AUDIO: Is There A Population Problem? Or Is There a Negative Growth Problem?

Human Rights Catastrophes of the Sexual Revolution: Population Control and Demographic Winter

There is no overpopulation problem. The people in every industrial country in the world are not having enough children to even replace themselves. The birth rate is declining in most of the rest of the world as well. My interview with journalist Don Feder answers these important questions.

Does overpopulation cause poverty or pollution? Why is under-population a bigger problem than over-population? What do you say to people who criticize you for having more than two children?

Who is behind the population hysteria? What human rights abuses are being committed in the name of solving the "population problem?" Most importantly, what can you do about all this? Watch this episode of the Dr. J Show to find out!

Featuring Don Feder, long-time columnist for the Boston Herald and Communications Director for the World Congress of Families, now Ruth Institute Coalitions Director. A 1972 graduate of the Boston University School of Law, Feder is admitted to the practice of law in New York and Massachusetts.

  • We need to see past stereotypes and see people. We need to see past stereotypes and, instead, see the image and likeness of God in each other. We should stop supporting media, individuals, and organizations that create, encourage, and perpetuate racist stereotypes, or who propose violence as a solution. Racist ideologies create images that leave negative impressions on susceptible and vulnerable minds and hearts, especially those of children.
  • Reach out with compassion to those of different races and hear their stories, respond with empathy, and work with humble, contrite hearts to build bridges of understanding in order to acknowledge the unique gifts we all bring to the Body of Christ.
  • We need to understand how police officers are trained. Go on a ride-a-long.
