"Non-gay respected news organizations picked apart the study as well. In the New Yorker blog, Senior Editor Amy Davidson noted that "It turned out that most of the adults that the study considered products of gay or lesbian parents were not, for the most part, raised by gays or lesbians."

Fundies are clueless when it comes to research methods. They have no concept of statistical analysis. They have no concept of cause&effect.

It is amusing that they will latch on to a flawed study, but reject findings from reputable one.

Quite a number of the homosexual 'couples' who have been in the news adopting children have separated not long thereafter.

Homosexual adoption denies a child a father or mother. Which didn't YOU need?

Homosexual parenting also places a child at risk for molestation from partners, disease, the tragedy of losing a guardian, domestic abuse, sexual abuse, etc.

This really shouldn't be a political matter. It should only be about child welfare!

You are a ridiculous liar. My name isn't David and I've never been divorced or cut off from my children. You homofascists can make no logical case for your horrible hate based agenda, so you attack those who tell the truth.

A mainstream presentation of the U of Texas study makes it very plain that this is the most extensive, scientific study on the subject:

My father. You can have him. If he got hit by a truck just after the insemination of my youngest sibling, it would have done my family, and the world, a lot of good.

Everything you describe has happened to some children that have been raised by those who choose an opposite-sex relationship.

Poor David (David Moore, Pekin / Manito , IL). You've been warned; these posts are going to your probation / parole officers with a request to have the court order you, once again, to cease using the internet. Do we really have to post your address, telephone numbers, and criminal information? Do we need to call the authorities again so you can be forced to go back on your medications? All of these actions have happened in the past, and have stopped your harassment and your decline, for a short period of time. If necessary, we can go back to posting your personal details (including the court records) online.

On David's myspace and facebook pages, it's interesting to see he has no male friends. Perhaps his same-sex attractions are too strong to have male friends, so he collects a few friends from out of the country, and a bunch of older women friends who send him messages of "love". He's recently posted photos of him 20-30 years ago - shirtless! LOL.

Your myspace pages, still up, shows the sad, awful life you have. Get help.

Your therapists have forbidden you to harass on the internet, and law enforcement is aware of your activities.

You have an estranged family resulting from your sexually abusive behaviors. Stop harassing on the internet, and focus on your therapy and your need for help.

You are a lying piece crap that should be scraped off someone's shoe. Choosing kids that have been in a foster care is not a good representative sample. The person who generated the original study probably went to the most affluent neighborhoods to pick the children of straight couples and into divorce court records for the "gay raised" subjects.' Whatever happened to "thou shall not bare false witness", means nothing to right wingers and bigots like you.

If you would have READ the link I provided from a mainstream rather than homofascist source, the study is the largest and most scientific on the subject and conducted under the auspices of one of our finest universities. The paltry flawed studies trying to support homosexual adoption better fit your suspiciouns.

That Desert News article is a hoot. According to them the researcher had no bias. Funny how they do not mention the antigay loans paid $750,000 for the study. Gee, that's not biased at all.

This study compared straight parents, ones that were in a stable family environment, and compared them to broken homes. Only two sets of gay parents, amongsy 100's of others, were actually in a commited relationship. These were not same sex parents at all.

This study pisses me off because it is the most obvious slanted study I have ever heard of.

You really think people aren't going to be angry and hateful when you label them as potential child molesters and spread lies about them as an entire group? Why are you so naive? Or maybe you are just plain ignorant.

Most scientific? Really? You call his sampling errors scientific? They completely negate his findings, but I don't expect you to understand. After all, you're the idiot that insists "every peer reviewed study" about reparative therapy proves it works (when in fact, there are none).

David's been around for years. His registered account was banned for life (for obvious reasons), and that's why he posts under a million different names, but the rhetoric is word for word exactly the same.
