Shocker: Anti-equality fingerprints all over anti-equality movement's beloved study

by Jeremy Hooper

The connections between anti-LGBT-minded groups like Witherspoon Institute (of which NOM co-founder Robert George is the Chairman) and the fallacy-laden Regnerus study (of which NOM is quite fond) are become ever-clearer. Check out this new admission from W. Bradley Wilcox, who has had years of close ties with Witherspoon and the "protect marriage" movement in general:

From October of 2010 to April of 2012, I also served as one of about a dozen paid academic consultants to the New Family Structures Study (NFSS). As a consultant, I attended an initial planning meeting in Austin, Texas and provided input to Professor Mark Regnerus about the design, analysis, and interpretation of the survey data associated with the NFSS. The process associated with this study was much like other academic projects that I have been associated with over my career, in which scholars from a range of disciplines and a range of perspectives offered input on a project.
