More pseudo-science from the right: repeats the lie: ' Kids of Gay Parents More Likely to Be Gay'

Jul 15, 2008 | Posted by: Thomas Jackson | Full story: gaynewsblog.net

Those who claim to be the 'religious' right are circulating more pseudo-science in the form of an article claiming "Pro-Homosexual Researchers Conceal Findings: Children Raised by Openly Homosexual Parents More Likely to Eangage in Homosexuality. The author, " Licensed Psychologist" Trayce L. Hansen, Ph.D. was not based on her own research nor was her work published in a peer reviewed scientific journal. Instead, her analysis of research by other scientists represents another step in the far right#s campaign to blur the distinction between real science and the kind practiced by this self-styled "cultural commentator." Ms. Hansen has a perfect right to state her views but to suggest her analysis is a valid scientific study is misleading at best and an outright lie at worst. Her repeated efforts to blur the distinction between personal opinion and peer-reviewed science suggest her training at the California School of Professional Psychology in San Diego was somewhat lacking in its instruction of scientific methodology. more

Why would well-adjusted self-accepting gay and lesbian couples teach lies about homosexuality to their children?[For that matter, I don't understand why you want to teach lies, except that you are blinded by your bigotry and prejudice.]

You got that part right!
See how partial knowledge leads you to be deceived?

If God did view homosexuality as a sinful act, would you be willing to consider it? Or do you close your heart to the concept because you've convienced yourself that you are right in your own thinking?

Those who practice homosexuality are not likely to encourage kids in their care to follow the bible. Nor are they likely pass along that God can redeem and transform anyone.
And that is a GOOD thing. The more people who are not subject to the evil of religion the better off the entire world will be. Religion is ignorance.

Why do you religionists want to perpetrate a lie so much? Why do you lie with such abandon while supposedly it is one of your Top 10 "no-no's"? Is hypocrisy so inherent in your religion?
