I only became aware of this study the other day when listening to a debate between a gay activist and a Catholic leader who was pro marriage. The study called “The New Family Structures Study” indicates that the “no difference” belief that is being propagated as truth is in fact, false. The study indicates that children raised by heterosexual couples are more balanced socially, emotionally, and in relationships than kids raised by homosexual parents.
Needless to say, when this study was released, there was an uproar from gay activists and those who are pushing the homosexual agenda. The author of the study, Professor Mark Regnerus, was blasted from all sides and even went as far as to accuse him of scientific misconduct, which could have cost him his job and credibility as a professor. Here are some excerpts from the story I found on CharismaNews.
Professor Mark Regnerus Vindicated In His Scientific Research
Homosexual activists may have thought they had a University of Texas at Austin professor pinned. But Professor Mark Regnerus has been cleared of alleged “scientific misconduct” in his research study that shows the harmful effects of same-sex relationshipson kids.
Specifically, Regnerus found kids raised by gay parents, particularly lesbian parents, turned out worse socially, emotionally and in relationships than children who had married, heterosexual parents.
The New Family Structures Study suggests that differences exist in outcomes for young adults raised in various environments with different family experiences. University of Texas-Austin conducted an official inquiry after activist blogger Scott Rosensweig (who goes by “Scott Rose”) accused Regnerus of scientific misconduct in the study and in how the results were reported in a scientific article about the study’s findings. Because the inquiry found the allegations to be unsubstantiated, UT-Austin says it will not conduct a formal investigation.
A UT-Austin memorandum stating the inquiry’s findings concludes that “Professor Regnerus did not commit scientific misconduct when designing, executing and reporting the research reported in theSocial Science Research article. None of the allegations of scientific misconduct put forth by Mr. Rose were substantiated either by the physical data, written materials, or by information provided during the interviews. Several of the allegations were beyond the purview of the inquiry.”
The memorandum says Rosensweig “inferred that there must be scientific misconduct. However, there is no evidence to support that inference.”
What is so hard to understand about this?
God created man male and female. There are 2 sexes to the human race. Each sex is equal but created differently from the other sex. What is so hard to understand about the fact that children need role models from both sexes to be balanced? Seriously, has this world lost it’s common sense?
Once again this shows that the agenda of the gay activists is not truth. The agenda is acceptance at the expense of truth. They were willing to scream, fight, and malign a man who found scientific evidence that was contrary to their belief rather than acknowledge the findings. Can anyone say Galileo? Has homosexuality now become a belief system? Maybe the government should be concerned that it is involving itself in religion.
Now that is something to think about!
