Regnerus Scandal Widens
From Scott Rose at The New Civil Rights Movement:
Mark Regnerus, a professor at University of Texas, Austin and Loren Marks, a professor at Louisiana State University, authors of disreputable studies about gays have attracted growing numbers of critics in an apparent growing scandal.
Reports on twinned studies now being used as anti-gay-rights weapons in the 2012 elections have to date focused mainly on 1) suspect work funded through NOM’s Robert George and 2) carried out by University of Texas, Austin’s Mark Regnerus.
Regnerus purported to compare young adult children of heterosexual parents with gay parents, yet for his study, did not even attempt to locate actual persons substantially raised by gay parents.
Previously, studies on children of gay parents showed good child outcomes.
The Regnerus and Marks papers appear to have been contrived as a one-two election year punch to demonize same-sex-headed families with children.
