A University of Texas faculty member did not commit scientific misconduct in connection with his study that raised doubts about gay parenting, the university has concluded.

As a result, no formal investigation of allegations against Mark Regnerus, an associate professor of sociology, is warranted, UT announced Wednesday.

FTA:

Regnerus found that the adult children of gay parents reported significantly different, and often worse, life experiences than the children of married, heterosexual biological parents.

Heresy! Heresy! Burn the infidel at the stake! How dare he publish a study contrary to “common knowledge”?

Boy, the university /media complex certainly is narrow-minded when someone challenges their articles of faith.

In another shocking study, guys have been found to be more attracted to women with less clothing.

UT said "private moral or ethical behavior or views are not misconduct."

Wow. Good to know.

The fact that he suffered through this witch hunt is telling.

Some leftist will probably just kill Regnerus.

Exactly. Don’t do a study that doesn’t meet the PC agenda.
