SAN FRANCISCO -- Children raised by same-sex parents are as well-adjusted and safe from abuse as kids who grow up with a mother and father, a Cambridge University psychologist testified Friday in a federal lawsuit challenging California's same-sex marriage ban.
"For a significant number of these children, their adjustment would be promoted were their parents able to get married," developmental psychologist Michael Lamb said while undercutting arguments made by sponsors of Proposition 8, the anti-gay marriage ballot measure passed in 2008.
Lamb said there was no evidence that children with gay parents were more likely to become gay themselves or become victims of sexual abuse or incest. Click here to find out more!
In addition, he said no evidence exists that gays or lesbians were more likely to sexually abuse children.
"We have a substantial body of evidence documenting that a child being raised by same-sex parents are just as likely to be well-adjusted as children raised by heterosexual parents," Lamb said.

Harvard? Cambridge? Are you kidding?
Does that ‘perfesser’ work for the Global Warming LibTtards?
"Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new, and there you will find only things evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." - Manuel II Palelogus
The APA once issued a paper stating that child-adult sex is perfectly healthy.
I’m gonna go out on a limb and say the perfesser is gay hissef.
Frank Lombard is the associate director of Dukes Center for Health Policy. The university administrator was recently arrested by the FBI and charged with offering up his adopted 5-year-old son for sex. I tried to contact Frank Lombard over the weekend to probe his expertise regarding the health benefits of raping small children. So far, hes declined to comment.
University administrator Lombard is accused of logging on to a chat room online and describing himself as a perv dad for fun. The detective who wisely looked into the suspicious screen name says that Lombard admitted to molesting his own adopted son. All this was before allegedly inviting a stranger to travel to North Carolina from another state to statutorily rape his already-molested adopted son.
That is not true: the sixty percent of black males who are raised by their mother alone and just as well adjusted as those raised by a mother and father. Just ask the millions of black guys who are in the pen./sarc
a Cambridge University psychologist?...
Tell this jackass what happens when Bob and Fred go to Billys little league game. I don’t think a boy would be inclined to want to play sports when his gay parents show up all the time and the other kids raz the hell out of him or avoid him altogether. How depressing for the kid!
I think you were looking for stuff like this before??
I just realized after I read your post that it didn't surprise me even a little that it was completely true.
How sad is it that talk about child/adult sex is so mainstream now that hearing a group would publish that position and it is not even worth being a big deal anymore?
Their side is winning this debate exactly like they said they would, tiny little millimeter steps after another until it becomes main stream by the next generation. I can only imagine what life will be like for my grandkids.
I would hope that the other side could find many child psychologists -- the kind who actually practice, rather than teaching at Cambridge -- who can debunk this myth.
Such abusive adoptive parents are certainly safe from national exposure when they ARE caught pimping out their boychildren. Just look at the case of the Duke University pederast.
They said that gay rights was about consenting adults in private. When does a child consent to be brought into an alternative sexuality household and denied a binary (male and female) set of role models?
Exactly. How about the feelings of the other’ parents? HS alone is already a tough way to grow up and you’d think kids are going to start being all “diversity” etc? Only in the movies, pal. No sane parent would want their kids to spend one night or afternoon with “Bob and Fred”.
There are gay parents that are doing a great job raising kids and there are straight parents doing a horrible job raising their kids.
I am filled w dread that the Olsen-Boies team has a wall of experts and slam-dunk “evidence” all lined up, and all our cheap ass lawyer side is going to do is read Bible passages. There is an enormous body of evidence of the harm that the homosexual lifestyle does to individuals, familes, children and society. Is our side going to fight fire with fire?
I think I'm going to put that one down as the most meaningless statement of the day.
