Your 'presume' to know how 'happy' I am??? I will tell you by your posts, you have to be one of the most miserable people on this thread, but I'll let you have your delusions...they seem to mean sooooo much to you....
<quoted text>
Please let me enlighten you on a few things...
Christians uphold the Word of GOD....it matters not to us who it offends. We know 'man' is a very 'fallible' being, and will mess up at every turn....that is why we have no faith in man, especially liberals like yourself....
I'm sorry not everyone can be a uptight person who thinks she has a right to judge others. I am perfectly happy and well like you said can't tell that from these post though think what you want. Christians ruin anything good of this world. Sorry but I fail and refuse to be brainwashed by a book. Plus all you are doing is proving what is wrong with this world. Hopefully you kids don't turn out gay cause I am sure that would kill you.

Yes it was...insufficient evidence to investigate means his research was sound and by the book....
Insufficient evidence to investigate means THEY DID NOT INVESTIGATE.

It doesn't matter how long he has to keep his data or if he can still be investigated....you all just can't admit his study is correct.....
He was accused and exhonerated....too bad for you...
His study was NEVER correct......that's the overall problem with it.........what he claimed to compare is NOT comparable.......now if he had wanted to compare heterosexual families with stepparents and children to Same-Sex families......then that would have been a study that might have yielded some information........but no one wants the truth, just something to validate their negative feelings towards Same-Sex parents and families!!!

Who died and put 'you' in charge of his study. His study proves what it proves...you just don't like what it proves....

I'm glad you think step-families and ss families are comparable...because every ss family is a step-family, and there is plenty written on step-families that show children aren't better off in them...

If it wasn't completed there's not enough information to make a proven fact. You really need to do some more reading. Some would also say some are better off in an environment not made of a heterosexual couple, most likely like your house. I would most likely slice off my ears, poke my eyes out, and chain myself to a moving semi if I had to be judged and hear what you are spewing on a daily basis.

If there was not enough information for 'his' study (and by the way...sociologists disagree with you on that), then how was there enough information for the studies that say ss parents are no different than o/s parents??? He had a way higher sampling than 'any' of those other studies....

It proves what an idiot will do to prove something that is a fallacy.........I know that it proves NOTHING except that to be a hateful study with many false conclusions and is not a true inclination about children raised in households with Same-Sex parents!!!

I also don't know of studies that have compared heterosexual step families to Same-Sex families......got any you are willing to link to?

Well he must be one brilliant idiot, since no one in the research department could find any wrong-doing on his part....

His conclusions were not false...the accusation has been made and squashed...you all need to face the facts already....

Face it...his study is sound and reliable..get over yourselfs...

Well, others found plenty wrong with his study.....just because you refuse to see that is again your problem!!!

Article about the Study, even the Author himself admits errors:
Mark Regnerus’s “family structure” study has been a hot topic since it was released in June, namely because every single anti-gay conservative organization has cited it as evidence that same-sex couples are inferior parents. An internal audit by the academic journal that originally published it found the conclusions to be “bullshit” because Regnerus’s criteria was whether a kid’s parent ever had a same-sex relationship, regardless of how long it lasted or what role in played in parenting. In a new interview with Focus on the Family — a group invested in continuing to cite the study to oppose LGBT equality — Regnerus admits that the foundation of his study is too weak to draw the conclusions that many have made:
REGNERUS: I got taken to task for leaning on young adults’ assessments of their parents’ relationships. I didn’t ask them whether they thought their mom was a lesbian or if their dad was gay. Because, in part, self-identity is a different kind of thing than behavior, and lot of people weren’t “out” in that era. I think we can all think of moms and dads when we were growing up that we either knew or suspected were gay or lesbian, but never “came out of the closet,” so to speak. So, I didn’t want to make the assumption that these young adults would identify their parents as gay or lesbian, so I kept the focus on relationship behavior.

more from the author:
There were two cases where they said the mom and her partner lived together for 18 years. There was another several who lived together for 15 or 13 years. So, stability in the sense of long-term was not common. And frankly, it’s not all that common among heterosexual population. I take pains in the study to say this is not about saying gay or lesbian parents are inherently bad.

More from the article:
So, Regnerus’ study was not about parents who openly identify as gay or lesbian. It was not about same-sex couples in long-term relationships raising children together. Regnerus even admits “this is not about saying gay or lesbian parents are inherently bad,” because he knows has no foundation on which to make such a claim. This was a study about unstable couples, possibly in sham marriages, who may have dabbled in same-sex relationships outside of their original marriage at a time when there was no recognition for same-sex couples anywhere in the country. In others words, the study’s results have zero implication for conversations in 2012 about out, committed same-sex couples who are already raising children.
http://thinkprogress.org/lgbt/2012/10/30/1110...

From another article:
Two hundred scholars signed a letter attacking his paper and the journal, Social Science Research, that published it.

Responding to a complaint from an anti-Regnerus blogger, the University of Texas conducted an inquiry. In August, an investigator exonerated Dr. Regnerus — but only after reading his e-mails and scrutinizing his research methods and data. In his Aug. 24 report, the investigator, Robert A. Peterson, wrote that he found “no evidence” of scientific misconduct in Dr. Regnerus’s study. But whether the study “possessed significant limitations or was even perhaps seriously flawed is a determination that should be left to debates that are currently under way in the academy.”

Of course they did...did you ever wonder how come they didn't scrutinize the studies that show ss parents are the same as o/s parents with the same vigor????

No study saying the opposite will never sit right with them....

But they WERE scrutinized, dipshit.... and peer-reviewed. We might as well be asking you about brain surgery, you're a clueless troll.
