The controversial Canberra independent politician who wants to see gay sex outlawed believes he can be prime minster one day.
Molonglo candidate Philip Pocock, who caused a storm last month with his views on gays, says the majority of psychologists are ''in denial'' about homosexuality.
Mr Pocock has written to The Canberra Times, saying that God has assured him he will be prime minister one day and that the population was being ridiculed on gay issues by a self deluded media and academia.
The independent candidate was responding to comments by Professor Don Byrne, Director of the ANU Research School of Psychology who wrote that he and his colleagues were troubled by Mr Pocock's views on homosexuality.
''This is not surprising of course because the basis of psychological trouble is denial, in varying degree, and denial of the real effects of homosexual practices seems to be the starting point for their research,'' Mr Pocock wrote.
''The ANU says there is no biological or psychological evidence of harm, except some evidence of increased psychological distress in homosexuals but says this is because they have been vilified and rejected.
''Of course, as only five to 10 per cent of psychologists actually believe in God, the eventual outcome of persistently doing what one believes, it is not surprising that the psychologists from the Research School at the ANU are not only deeply troubled, but wrong,'' he wrote.
Mr Pocock said the ANU psychologists should all be ''shipped off'' to the ''school of inconsequential studies''.
''When I become prime minister - as God has assured me I will - I will see if I can manage it,'' he wrote.
''However, for the sake of the larger population, whose faith and correct judgements on this issue, are being frenetically ridiculed by a handful of self-deluded academics and media, individuals who see their 'castles' rapidly crumbling, I would suggest the Catholic Catechism for an excellent overview.''
