Tenured California professor says study labeling “homophobia” a disease is “garbage”

According to Christian Examiner:

An Italian research group of social psychologists recently published a paper in The Journal of Sexual Medicine claiming “homophobia” is a disease and homophobic attitudes are strong indicators of mental disorders.

“Garbage,” says Robert Oscar Lopez, a professor at California State University-Northridge.

Lopez, reportedly a member of a church affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention and frequent writer in conservative publications, explained the study was done mostly by homosexuals and their supporters in the social psychology field, an academic discipline notably lacking in social conservatives.

“It’s almost impossible for the research teams to critique their own methodologies or to improve or to see their own biases.”
