<quoted text>
Attempting to compare same sex parents (post divorce) with never divorced heterosexual parents represents a seriously flawed methodology. Divorce can be (and usually IS) a tramatic experience for kids, and this will have an effect on the children, REGARDLESS of the gender of their new step parent. To be valid, or in any way useful, there would need to be a study of SSM parents compared to hetero step parent families.
How absolutely idiotic.

There is no way to compare without diabolically and deliberately leaving a child destitute of one gender and devoid of at least one parent.

Such behavior ought to be criminal.

The vast majority of gay unions with children are in the same situation as straight adoptive, step and foster parents, already a serious negative made worse by the absent gender in gay unions.

Doesn't look well...

You really should not lie, when it is SO easy to prove you wrong...
Rosenfeld (2010) is the first scholar to employ a large, random sample of the population in order to compare outcomes among children of same-sex parents with those of heterosexual married parents. He concluded—after controlling for parents’ education and income and electing to limit the sample to households exhibiting at least 5 years of co-residential stability—that there were no statistically-significant differences between the two groups in a pair of measures assessing children’s progress through primary school.
From here:
http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/...
"...no statistically-significant differences..."
You failed to mention that your quote is in the section that noted among other deficiencies, THE LACK OF SAMPLING SIZE AND A SHORT TERM VIEW, both of which undermine any substantive conclusions.

You really should not lie, when it is SO easy to prove you wrong...

Gay Marriage should be left up to the States or outlawed entirely. Also gay marriages should not get any benefits.
answer: The reason gays want legal marriage is to obtain benefits. If they cannot get benefits by marrying same sex, they will marry straights, and that is not a good idea.

Now, see if you can come up with a rational argument against gay marriage.

Geting married to obtain benefits is dumb, and taking advantage of someone and the benefits source. Get a job and get your own benefits.

Yeah! Ann Romney!!!

Go get your own job.

Actually, Bruno, most same-sex couples are already duel income, but what you, fool that you are, fail to grasp is that by not being able to select from their competing work benefits the best insurance option to provide for each other, as is allowed any other married couple, same-sex couples end up paying for excess fees.

And of course, both employers are each paying fully for their respective individuals, but if a couple were allowed to select a single insurance provider, one employer would be off the hook, whereas the other would be paying a slightly larger fee, but over all, a net savings for the economy.

You don't care about SSM, if you did you would go to a state that allows it and live your lives. You are not fooling anyone but your so called partner you gays are all selfish little liars and hypocrits.

Frack-You! You leave the state. In as soon as eleven days (at worst nine months), marriage equality is returning to the Golden State, and you, little man, can hike it outta here yourself if you don't like it (I suggest you head west). This is my state too, you selfish, small minded, little prig.

I pay taxes, my husband pays taxes, and even as individuals, we probably pay twice what you do, so in the words of Alexander Graham Bell, "GO FRUCK YOURSELF!"

The murder of U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens in Libya on Wednesday is the direct consequence of stupid people not understanding the relationship of cause and effect and not thinking through the ramifications of throwing idiotic accusations out into the cyberworld and doing so in the name of their narrow view of religion to promote some pointless pissing contest over who's prophet's dick is bigger.

It's all about the dick to you. We are at war, idiot. This is how our leaders act: http://www.youtube.com/watch...

Killing bin laden and bragging about it at 21 times at the Democrat convention might not have been a great idea considering the Muslim Brotherhood was watching since it's their party too.
