Academic Outrage over Politically Incorrect Gay Parenting Study
American Thinker ^ | 9-19-2012 | David Paulin

Posted on 09/19/2012 7:19:42 AM PDT by Renfield

Sociologist Mark Regnerus, whose study on gay parenting outraged gay-rights advocates and their cheerleaders in the academy, started classes at the University of Texas in Austin with, he says, a bit of a load off his shoulders.

A university inquiry cleared him of charges of flawed scholarship. Or as gay activists and their many supporters in academia saw it -- that he'd engaged in some very calculated and vile gay-bashing.

Specifically, Regnerus was charged with "scientific misconduct" for his study in the July issue of Social Science Research, titled: "How different are the adult children of parents who have same-sex relationships? Findings from the New Family Structures Study."

Its politically incorrect conclusions, based on data from nearly 15,000 adults, contended that children reared over the years by gay and lesbian parents were, as adults, far less well-adjusted than adults reared as children in households of married biological and heterosexual parents. "The results reveal numerous, consistent differences, especially between the children of women who have had a lesbian relationship and those with still-married (heterosexual) biological parents," the study observed....

Shouldn’t academics be open to a differing opinion than their own?

This is ridiculous.

Never, ever, let real data get in the way of a liberal’s religion (er, politically corrupt doctrine)!

It always amazes me that anyone could think that two homos could raise a child as well as a married man and woman can raise a child. These people are sick and twisted and their children are abused. This should not be allowed.

” Shouldn’t academics be open to a differing opinion than their own?”

There is only one opinion in academia these days, left wing.
The past 30 years, they have screened out conservative applicants, so now there is only one opinion left.

Those turd burglars and carpet munchers should only be allowed to raise whatever they can produce from their queering sex acts. And no, turkey basters don't count.

About 15 years ago, I was listening to an Los Angeles radio station where a vice principle said “We have true diversity at our school. We all look different, but we all think alike.”

If ever there was an eye opening moment about what liberals consider diversity, that was it.

Look up the depression, drug addiction and suicide rates of the Homosexual community as a demographic.

God created mankind male and female, He created marriage and gave us a very clear picture of His will concerning the family structure. Satan is attempting to corrupt God’s creation, and those who play a part in helping him will be judged.

Sex and race activists love science except when they don't get the results they want.

Liberals respect science is nonsense. They are famous for harassing and punishing any researcher who engages in the wrong science or who gets results that contradicts their agenda. They fix projects to get the desired outcome.

Example one: These people were deemed mentally ill by professionals for a long time until they came in and bullied and threatened people to change their science to name them the picture of mental health.

Example two: They harass scientists who get climate change results that don't match their global warming agenda. They block the ability of honest researchers to publish results liberals don't like, threatening editors at scientific publications.

If the liberals could see an advantage in convincing people that the world is flat, they’d be handing out globes that looked like pancakes.

OMG - I cannot believe that my alma mater actually stood up for somebody who would dare to question the politically correct position on anything, much less on homosexuality. Maybe there’s hope for Babylon on the Colorado after all!

There is a percentage of Obama voters who could be converted instantly as they have already fallen off the world of reality.

Immorality has so destroyed our culture that they have to produce studies to explain what is obvious.

They’ve done well at ruining perfectly good seasons for several years now - I’ve only got so many more “wears” left for my ‘05 National Champions” t-shirt!

That is what science is. It's "obvious" that the sun goes around the earth, but some people wanted to test that to be sure.

Right, that’s the secret cost of this alternative lifestyle. That we allow government schools to teach young people that it is normal and healthy is a crime.

Liberals don't use science, they abuse it.

When you begin with a foregone conclusion and disregard/discard any data to the contrary you are no longer seeking answers nor to discern/explain what exists, you are only seeking to add a mask of credibility and authority to the agenda you pursue.

Since the latter is their aim, the only way to retain any of that purloined credibility is to attack the integrity of those who would report the theft.

But projection (in this case, the accusation of others of their own real or anticipated sins) is so common a trait among liberals as to be nearly universal.
