Video: 'Family Research' vs. true research about the genuine spectrum of families (no quote marks necessary)

by Jeremy Hooper

David Pakman continues to impress us with his firm but fair back-and-forths with some of the anti-LGBT community's prominent spinners. The time it's the Family Research Council's Tom McClusky who's on the line, yet it's the pro-equality team that continues to prove itself to be the side that's on the ball:

Oh, Tom. It's really rich to hear a man who cites study after study that comes from the anti-LGBT movement's own stable of carefully selected, typically faith-based researchers talking about how Judge Walker supposedly relied on his own personal opinions. FRC's entire anti-gay/pro-"ex-gay" agenda is preconceived! FRC's every movement in terms of scientific research involves rejecting that which is inconvenient (i.e. all the data and thought-out views that Abbie presents) while concocting bent research from biased groups like NARTH or twisting the known body of science in ways that routinely lead the cited researchers to speak out against the usage!

Some of us want to live in this world in peace, and others want to mold the world so that it fits their own (again, typically faith-based) convictions. The latter is certainly something -- but it ain't "research."
