Brian Camenker, head of the Massachusetts-based anti-gay group MassResistance, argues that gay people are not good at sports.

Camenker made his remarks during a weekend appearance on fellow conservative Linda Harvey's radio show.

While discussing whether passage of an anti-gay law in Russia had increased attacks against gays in the country, Camenker stated that people are naturally repulsed by gays.

“I would say that a lot of it is probably true,” Camenker said. “The natural way people react to homosexuality – outside of all the diversity training – is a certain amount of revulsion. So if two men start kissing in the public street, you can expect a certain reaction from people.”

“If you're going to do something that most of the population considers bad or immoral or disgusting in public, you're going to get a certain reaction. I think that they push as far as they can and sometimes you just can't do it.”

He went on to suggest that few Olympic athletes would protest Russia's law during the upcoming Sochi Games because gay people are not good at sports.

“If you follow sports much you'll notice there are almost no homosexual athletes in the major sports, certainly not in the professional sports and none that I know of in the college sports except for very, very minor roles,” Camenker said. “It's interesting because if you go into any public school you see a large percentage of the teachers, at least where I live, are out homosexuals. I think that, my own analysis of that is that it's so difficult to become an athlete at that level that the psychological issues that are going through you in the homosexual lifestyle just don't cut it. Because you just need this very high degree of stability, alertness, everything else, so you see almost no athletes, you know, homosexuals in the professional sports or the high level, football leagues or baseball or anything like that, almost none.”

Professional athletes in every major sport – football, baseball, basketball, soccer and hockey – have come out gay, most after their retirement.
