Sigh...X Box...you really need to expand your thinking skills.
Regnerus did not study children born or adopted into same-sex parent families, only those who seem to recollect one of their parents ever having a same-sex relationship.
Regnerus compared that group, most of which had experienced family dissolution, only to stable, married, opposite-sex families — i.e. he compared unstable to intact.
Regnerus ignored whether the children lived with or were raised by the parents who had a same-sex relationship.
Regnerus only identified these “gay” parents based on the recollection of the children, not based on how the parents actually identify or live their lives.
Most of the factors Regnerus analyzes were adult outcomes, not childhood outcomes, and could very well have had nothing to do with the relationships of the children’s parents.

Oh look, Dan wants to chime in and protect the equally irrelevant Rose.
I'm sorry that both Rose and you have such trouble accepting what the courts have said. I guess you don't like the DOMA ruling anymore huh?
YUK!YUK!YUK!

Dan thinks the court said you need to "get a grip Skippy"!

And he thinks they said "freedom to marry can easily be seen as a right"!

And "freedoms on how to live as long as they don't harm others were at the crux of the forming of our government"! Or such some silly sh!t.

TOO Funny!

Once again, the Brown's suit is NOT asking for decriminalization of polygamy. Why do you continue to lie about it?

But funny thing....you won't see me in here for the next few months like you.
And give this some thought....gays will have mine, Clint Eastwood, the President's and others support to marry despite your angst. Go crawl in the hole you emerged from loser...LOL!!!
Gays have my support too.

The only thing I don't like about that fact is that I'm on the same side as a hot headed dumbass like you.

The bottom line is, I support marriage equality, you do not.

Who but some loser punk like you would spit venom at a group of people like gays whom have nothing to do with you nor cause harm and are looking for a basic right to live their lives freely yet you just don't like it.
I'll bet my penny collection there's at least 12,904 things people don't like about you yet even I would protect your ability to live free in a free country.
You're a putz. Mind your own God damned business and leave gays alone idiot. Have a good week -
If someone disagrees with you they "need to get a life as well loser"?

Either list those 12,904 things people don't like about him, or fork over your silly penny collection tough guy!

Dan. What a dope!

Why do you continue to post that the Browns are working to decriminalize polygamy?
Because he wants to believe that they are.

So speaks the great pedophile, who requires an explanation of why 14 year olds are OFF-LIMITS. If you have to ask, you belong in prison...

Everyone knows we're talking about consenting adults.

When you say you support same sex marriage do I stupidly ask if you support children marrying?

If you want to use children getting married as an argument against polygamy, others are free to use it as an argument against same sex marriage.

Hope that helps, dummy.

I know it is nothing new. What boils my bladder content is when conservatives/republicans blame all of our problems on liberals/democrats and when liberals/democrats blame everything on conservatives/republicans. Each side claiming to have all the answers. Most of what they have to offer are little more than experiments that may or may not work in current times. I'd like to see a little more civil discourse, a little give & take, and a whole lot less red/orange faced shouting matches. Grow the fxck up will ya?

Yeah, Jizmbird is always bringing up children. And they're always 14 year olds.

What a creep. The mental picture he creates when he does that makes my skin crawl.

...and somehow, you think your little "survey" is scientific, eh? Tell us about your control methods. What was the margin of error? Has World Nut Daily offered to publish your study? Who did the peer review, Dr. Regnerus?
You are completely clueless.
Scientific ? No. Realistic ? Yes. Control methods ? Random sampling. Margin of error ? None. Peer review ? None. How could there be ? I'll explain ...
1) Was not conducted in a laboratory, was conducted in the field, utilizing spontaneous interrogations.
2) S/A/A.
3) S/A/A.
4) Could not be subject to peer review, due to lack of documentation.

Conclusions ? You will not recognize anything that represents denial of your false propaganda. You would tell us that the sky is gold, if it furthers your ends, and scoff at anyone that corrects you. But your propaganda does not stand up to any realistic testing..

The Dargers insist that if polygamy were to be decriminalized, people would feel more free to report abuses that have been associated with their lifestyle.

“There’s so much secrecy that goes on simply because it’s against the law,” Vicki Darger said.
