Is there evidence of a connection between religious, conservative homophobia and suppressed same-sex desire?

Ted Haggard is an example of an evangelical leader who preached that homosexuality was a sin and participated in regular sex acts with a male prostitute(s)
Larry Craig, a United States senator who opposed including sexual orientation in hate-crime legislation, was found in a men’s bathroom playing Plummer with another man.
Glenn Murphy Jr., a leader of the Young Republican National Convention and an opponent of same-sex marriage, got caught sexually assaulting a straight man.
Scientific studies support the theory is that homosexual urges, when repressed out of shame or fear, can be expressed as homophobia.
Additional Scientific studies support the theory that more than 60% of religious conservative homophobic individual’s have deep seated homosexual urges

    I tend to find that the louder someone is about hating something, the more likely they are to be found that they are participating in the behavior. Happens all the time.

    only in your dreams. just cause you like hairy ass does not mean I do. I am far from a conservative, i believe in rights, i just don't believe in flaunting what you do in the bedroom, out in the streets, that just shows how much class you lack

    Everything (virtually everything) stated here is based on political ideology. So, it's really insignificant; and of little or no value to anyone. One just might ascertain that 97% of the Global Population don't even care about any of this stuff. It's like saying; "Should I paint my downstairs bathroom beige or off-white?"

    All I know is on my republican side of the family there are seven who openly admit to being gay/lesbian. On the democrat side there are none. And were an English family? What's that all about?

    It's the norm for Straight Democrats and openly Gay Democrates. The repressive side is generally the Republicans

    All silliness aside(and we shall cast the term conservative out and simply refer to homophobes), yes, studies have shown that there is a link in many cases involving the almost militant homophobic type of person. Nice topic of discussion Bob!!

    Yes. Not necessarily "religious" and "conservative" homophobia, but homophobia in general.

    I think that people notice the outliers. Of course there are conservative closeted homosexuals, but if we also kept track of all of the anti-homosexuality crowd, I think that they'd make up a pretty small portion.

    There are many cases where people who are secretly gay try to hide through anti-gay rhetoric,with or without religion.

    If either myself or my very conservitive family were as nuts as the Leftist are, my cousin, A. and his "friend" would have been dead long ago instead of tolerated.

    What Homo-Absorbed Liberals want is for everyone with a standard of any kind to drop it to the most base possible.

    Anyone refusing their arbitrary Orthodoxy is to be reviled in the most brutal manner possible.

    Right! Anyone who isn't on board is a closet queer. Isn't it gratifying to believe that everyone is secretly like you.

    What about progressive homophics? The basic premise is flawed if all homophobics are labelled conservative. Of course, this could just be a slam at conservatives and have nothing to do with homophobia or same-sex desire. What do you think, bob? Is something pulling your short hairs? LOLOLOLOLOL

    Actually the data shows that progressive homophic population is very small in contrast to the Conservative homophobic population.

    I have no idea but I hope not. I would rather not be associated with any of the men you mentioned. Nor do I want to be associated with any of the other hundreds of idiotic, sign carrying, bible quoting, bigots parading around pretending they are anything other than what they are.

    Actually, this is not the case. Recent psychological studies have shown that homophobia and repressed same-sex urges are not linked from Homophobia to same-sex urges, but are from same-sex urges to homophobia. But, this is only the case in about 5% of homophobic people, which makes sense, since 10% is about the same number of people who actually classify as homosexual.

    And yours is of an idiot. I am openly bisexual, I support marriage equality, and I don't let either my religious or political views restrict my views of scientific evidence. You really need to think about how ignorant you tend to show yourself to be.
