But there's no difference between straight and gay parents! They're all the same!

A Married Mom and Dad Really Do Matter: New Evidence from Canada | Public Discourse

Quote:
There is a new and significant piece of evidence in the social science debate about gay parenting and the unique contributions that mothers and fathers make to their children’s flourishing. A study published last week in the journal Review of the Economics of the Household—analyzing data from a very large, population-based sample—reveals that the children of gay and lesbian couples are only about 65 percent as likely to have graduated from high school as the children of married, opposite-sex couples. And gender matters, too: girls are more apt to struggle than boys, with daughters of gay parents displaying dramatically low graduation rates.

Actually, it was never in doubt. This is one of the most studied ideas, ever. And nobody has been able to demonstrate it's not the best.

Why don't you preach against divorce with equal fervor, then?

Do a search I've started a topic about divorce. However it's the gays pushing their insidious agenda at the moment. So that's what I address from time to time.

Now that lgbt relationships are in the open, being formalized, there is more and more in various media outlets about lgbt divorce. The lgbt relationship is out in the open where it ought to be subject to the same inspection as otherss. The point being, that it is the human condition that leads to breakups and since lgbts are just like heterosexuals, their relationships and now marriages will fall part too.

So, you can put down that symbolic tired, rock of a deflective attack, Mr or Ms Glass House.

So you have learned this information from a group that is openly against gay marriage. Did you know Phillip Morris also did a study that said cigarette smoking is actually good for your health.

The Douglas Allen study of Canadian children of gay/lesbian parents is worthless | Family Inequality

Here is an article going over the methodology flaws of the study.

Anyone now have a study to disprove the study that disproved the original study?

What do you do, sit at your computer every day digging up biased articles that fit your bigoted anti gay agenda? Real research proves you wrong.

The Witherspoon Institute is a conservative think tank in Princeton, New Jersey. The group is opposed to same-sex marriage, embryonic stem cell research, and abortion.

Geez, I'd better see if a couple of gays can adopt me then. The benefits must be fabulous.
