Frankie...
I have a bachelor's degree in Sociology. I have a master's degree in Social Work.
Since 1984 I have been exposed to scholarly studies that look at many aspects of social behavior and mental health. I've written papers on them, discussed them with friends and colleagues, and basically been elbow deep in evaluating the methods used by other social scientists to draw conclusions re: any number of topics.
I am not biased when it comes to looking at data from an experiment. However, I won't blindly accept the conclusions drawn from a study until I've seen and reviewed the data and look at the many facets that are involved in doing a study.
Read the following piece from Salt Lake City's "Desert News"...
http://www.deseretnews.com/article/765581831/...
Kimare has taken one of the studies discussed in this article and ran with it. He claims it as fact; just it like he uses his ridiculous "epi-marker/genetics mistake" theory.
He's no scientist. He is a preacher with an education in ministry.
He doesn't let the "facts" get in his way.
The bottom line concerning the outcomes of children is as follows: A child who is raised in a stable, loving, supportive, resourceful environment is going to do better than one who is not.
And there will always be those kids who have issues that are not related to the family's makeup. Take, for example, that kid who killed all of those children in Newtown Conn. He came from a household with support, resources, encouragement, etc. But he also had a mental disorder that resulted in tragic outcomes.
Finally, it is insincere to claim that a child of an intact, heterosexual, biological family will always do better than a child of an intact, same-sex family.
There just isn't conclusive evidence to say that this is factual.
Don't be fooled by Kimare.
He pulls studies out of his behind and makes them say exactly what he wants them to say.
I don't do that. If I've referenced a study here, it's because I've read it entirely and believe that it is sound.
WOW! Real proud of you fruitloops!

I have a masters in geology. Sociology is one of the majors people fall back to after they drop out of geology. Those that can't hack real science do well in the Psuedo ah, er, social sciences.

P.S. How good a parent someone is or isn't is irrelevant to marriage equality.

Goodness! I didn't realize I was talking to someone who studies "rocks". That must take some REAL training. After all, they have brains and are complex, thinking objects.

Wait... I'm mistaken. Rocks are rocks. I must have been thinking about people and how difficult it is to understand human interactions and how the mind functions.

By the way, I cut my teeth on physics. That was my initial field of study. But I found it too impersonal and uninteresting when compared to the social and psychological sciences.

And finally, a person or couple's ability to parent has been made a key issue in the Prop. 8 and DOMA arguments--by YOUR side.

You guys are the ones who claim that same-gender parents are inadequate when it comes to raising a child.

But, hey, if you don't want to make it an issue, that's fine by me.

By the way, I've been collecting rocks since I was a kid. I have a hell of a collection. They're all over my house.

The bottom line is the only real science is physics, all the others are stamp collecting.

I worked in geophysics for 43 years for the USGS. My title was geologist but geophysics is what I did.

I don't think same gender parents are inadequate. I fully support same sex marriage and parenting. Kids need loving parents wherever they can get them.

Perhaps you should strap down your knee. It tends to jerk and make a fool of you.

Hope that helps tough guy!

How would marriage law be "re-written" for everyone by removing unconstitutional laws created relatively recently to harm gay Americans?
Do you really think that everyone will be forced to marry someone of the same gender? I promise you that this is not the case.
Gay people are too caring and polite to want to come into your home and create laws to harm your family.
It's simple courtesy. If something can't harm YOU, don't create laws banning it that harm others.
What specific harm do u refer to?

Keeping marriage one man and one woman causes the least harm. Far less than outlawing same sex cohabitation. Let's be reasonable.

You worked as a janitor within the USGS. You gave BJs to the gay geo-eggheads as you made your rounds from dept to dept.
