While you provide no documentation to support your prejudice, I have provided documentation to support the science I have presented.

Perhaps if you devoted some of your time doing your own research rather than repeating false and demeaning allegations here, you might begin to overcome your irrational, deep seated prejudice.

I'm curious as to why you spend so much time and energy to research subjects that you consider degrading and immoral. Why do you have so much information on the logistics of homosexuality? I'm sure that if you ignore the issue it will never seep into your life. Trust me it is not an insidious entity that will find way to effect you personally.

I've posted the largest, latest and most scientific study to date with published study methods

Why are you afraid to do the same for your supposed proof?

Again, your fraud of a study took what we already knew: children of intact families do better than children of families that suffer divorce and conflict, and then tried to say intact same sex parent families were the same as families of conflict and divorce. It was bought and paid for by anti-gay organizations, and gave them the outcome they wanted. Here is what the American Sociological Association has to say about your "study" in their Supreme Court brief (pgs. 26-29):
"First, the Regnerus study does not specifically examine children born or adopted into same-sex parent families, but instead examines children who, from the time they were born until they were 18 or moved out, had a parent who at any time had “a same-sex romantic relationship.”. As Regnerus noted, the majority of the individuals characterized by him as children of “lesbian mothers” and “gay fathers” were the offspring of failed opposite- sex unions whose parent subsequently had a same-sex relationship. In other words, Regnerus did not study or analyze the children of two same-sex parents."

(ASA continued): Second, when the Regnerus study compared the children of parents who at one point had a “same-sex romantic relationship,” most of whom had experienced a family dissolution or single motherhood, to children raised by two biological, married opposite-sex parents, the study stripped away all divorced, single, and stepparent families from the opposite-sex group, leaving only stable, married, opposite-sex families as the comparison... Thus, it was hardly surprising that the opposite-sex group had better outcomes given that stability is a key predictor of positive child wellbeing. By so doing, the Regnerus study makes inappropriate apples-to-oranges comparisons.

Third, Regnerus’s first published analysis of his research data failed to consider whether the children lived with, or were raised by, the parent who was, at some point, apparently involved in “a romantic relationship with someone of the same sex” and that same-sex partner. Instead, Regnerus categorized children as raised by a parent in a same-sex romantic relationship regardless of whether they were in fact raised by the parent and the parent’s same-sex romantic partner and regardless of the amount of time that they spent under the parent’s care. As a result, so long as an adult child believed that he or she had had a parent who had a relationship with someone of the same sex, then he or she was counted by Regnerus as having been “raised by” a parent in a same-sex relationship.

Fourth, in contrast to every other study on same-sex parenting, Regnerus identified parents who had purportedly engaged in a same-sex romantic relationship based solely on the child’s own retrospective report of the parent’s romantic relationships, made once the child was an adult. This unusual measurement strategy ignored the fact that the child may have limited and inaccurate recollections of the parents’ distant romantic past.

Finally, the study fails to account for the fact that the negative outcomes may have been caused by other childhood events or events later in the individual’s adult life, particularly given that the vast majority (thirty-seven of forty) of the outcomes measured were adult and not childhood outcomes. Factors other than same-sex parenting are likely to explain these negative outcomes in the Regnerus study. 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."

To sum it up, the PC gay crowd wanted a cherry picked study group. Just like they have done with the studies they use.

And that is exactly why you refuse to post the study methods of the one you referenced.

The Regnerus study took a large average of what was available. That's what the real world produces in gay families.

You did such a nice summary of the Regnerus criticism, why not post comparables with your study? Come on, you can do it!

"Did it Hurt" -- the divorce rate is much lower among gay married couples than it is among straight ones. They also do a better job of nourishing and educating their children. Gays commit fewer crimes, and are far less likely to abuse their children.
Get your facts straight, or just keep on hating blindly. Your choice.
I would say that you could not possibly have credible information on comparing the two because it was not legal until recently so for the raising a family and the care of children you couldnt compare because the number of same sex couples is so small compared to marraige or relationship between a man and a women. So of course whatever number is given will surely seem high but look at the whole picture. As far a the divorce rate with same sex marriage just as i stated above how long has it been legal? Be careful about saying someone is a hater when you are showing the same disrespect toward a marriage between a man and women.

The Regnerus only validates what every other none lesbian study concurs.

An honest minded person would suspect the lesbian studies (where ARE the gay studies...).

This could be why the only lesbian study that publishes it's methods is clearly unscientific and clearly biased.

It also explains why you censored my post...

You are half-way married there, perhaps it would help if you wore a dress like Jonah?

Good for you, I am sure you and yourself are very happy together! By the way your wife called, she says she checked out of that marriage a long time ago, it was too crowded.

if your comment is not just a insulting quip please explain to me how it makes any sense what so ever. Or is that your just talking out of the area of the human anatomy that your so concerned about others penetrating?
