As to angry, not at all. In fact, the level you stoop to only shows your desperation. Everyone sees the troll behavior.
You may be a late Dick, but you have failed to address even the simple post with a reasoned response. Here, give it a shot again;
Marriage is a miraculous union of two genders,
a union so profound,
it is described as the union of Mars and Venus.
It reunites humanity to the roots of life,
while at the very same time
hosting the best and natural
birth place of future human life.
It is the blend of masculinity and femininity.
The wisdom of logic and intuition united.
Strength and delicacy perfectly balanced.
Protection and nurture combined as one.
A complimentary merging that multiplies the unbiased blend of humanity's genders.
A ss couple cannot equate to a single one of these distinctions.
Smile.

Again, you can't blame the method of investigation for the misuse of the results.
Science is a method of investigation. Information obtained through science requires others to find the same results for it to be valid. That rules out "twisting the numbers" to get your desired result, as your work is available for others to see and verify or refute your results.
Decades of scientific research and clinical observation has led every mainstream medical and mental health scientific organization in the US to agree being gay is a natural expression of human love and bonding for a minority of the population.
There is no scientifically justifiable reason for refusing to treat gay people equally under the laws in effect for straight people.
Science, as well as history, has also shown that prejudice and discrimination cause needless suffering and death.
Funny, a recent study of lesbian family studies just found them to be extremely biased and fraught with unscientific methods. Yet they are knowingly used in court cases right now.

This at the expense of children.

Documentation?

Would that change decades of clinical experience and research showing the relationship between parent and child is more important than any other variable including biology?

Your desire to dehumanize gay people doesn't change the fact all humans qualify for all human rights by virtue of being human, no matter how you choose to dehumanize them in your world.

Look up the paper co-published with the Regnerus Study.

I wasn't talking about Regnerus' study, which happens to be the latest, largest and most scientific study to date.

Lesbian couples came in last out of seven family types. AFTER single parents. Gay couples didn't even rate.

"Regnerus himself concludes that “I am thus not suggesting that growing up with a lesbian mother or gay father causes suboptimal outcomes because of the sexual orientation or sexual behavior of the parent.”

In sum, by conflating (1) children raised by same-sex parents with (2) individuals who reportedly had a parent who had “a romantic relationship with someone of the same sex,” and referring to such individuals as children of “lesbian mothers” or “gay fathers,” the Regnerus study obscures the fact that it did not specifically examine children raised by two same-sex parents. Accordingly, it cannot speak to the impact of same-sex parenting on child outcomes."

1. Because the study did not focus on causation, it focused on end results.

2. Regnerus had trouble finding long term ss relationships using the same method he did for all other family types. Even by dumbing down the method, he STILL had trouble finding gay couples! This problem is not limited to Regnerus. There is YET to be a study of gay parenting. All the purported ones are lesbian.

The bottom line, the latest, largest and most scientific study to date is the Regnerus Study.

I still have an unanswered challenge. Provide me a study of ss couple parenting WITH THE STUDY METHODS INCLUDED.

Lets see who's study is legit.

LOL. So, the cause of the outcomes is not important? So how can one then apply the results in a sensible and logical manner? Geesh.

And if Regnerus had trouble looking for long term gay couples raising kids, he wasn't looking very hard. There are dozens in my church alone, and I live in one of the most conservative areas you can imagine.

No, he had no interest in comparing straight couples to gay couples, and their ability to raise children. That was not what the study was about, even if folks like you try to twist it that way. At it takes some serious twisting.

Just look at the peer reviews. This "study" was trashed. And for good reason.

Try again.

Of course the cause is important. But every study is limited in its scope. This is why having the parameters of a study available is essential for evaluation.

This study was assaulted, while ignoring and using truely biased and unscientific studies.

Give me one counter study with methods.

You try again.

Evidently, you know NOTHING about science and research methods, or you would KNOW that the Regnerus "study" is pure crap. Any first year statistics student could discern his errors.

I can't believe people still bring up that bogus study. It just goes to show how uneducated and stupid homophobes are.
