Gay Sheep Reply

I recieved this from Jim Newman. I think it is worth making a new post from rather than leaving it hidden in the comments section.
Whislt I thought the artticle was funny, Jim's reply shows it had a more sinister intent than I realised.

I thank Jim for writing. Lies are not helpful and I am glad he has pointed them out.

"Jim Newman here from the university that is actually conducting the
research. In regards to the Sunday Times article which is the source of
all these wild conspiracy theories, it was filled with errors and false
statements. In some cases the paper even reported the exact opposite of
what actually occurred. In reality – the research was conducted five
years ago. When announced in 2002, several gay and lesbian groups
appreciated the findings as the data supports the belief that
homosexuality has biological roots and is not merely a matter of
choice. Also – we are not “curing” gay sheep. I am pleased that a
writer has thoroughly investigated the article. As he reports, the
Sunday Times article basically a piece of science fiction made up by
PETA, yes the animal rights people. His analysis also raises important
questions about the timing of the article which again comes almost five
years after the research was actually conducted. Here’s a link to that
analysis that anyone who is interested in this topic should read: A

beginning to print stories on how this science research was hijacked by
PETA, the left and the right for political gain. Here’s one story: If
only British press would say, 'My baa-d' "
