'When we talk about Regnerus, I completely dismiss the study. It’s over. He has been disgraced.'
In an explosive new interview with the Southern Poverty Law Center, a member of the editorial board of the paper that published the flawed hit piece that is the Regnerus Study pokes more holes in the "research" and the anti-LGBT agenda behind it. Full interview at link:
Darren Sherkat, professor of sociology at Southern Illinois University and a member of the editorial board of Social Science Research, was tapped by journal editor [James] Wright to conduct an audit of the process of publishing the Regnerus study. Sherkat was given access to all the peer reviews and correspondence connected with the paper, and was told the identities of the reviewers. What he found, he says, was a study that is deeply methodologically flawed and a peer-review process that failed to identify significant problems. Sherkat also says that the story of the study’s publication is part of a much larger trend in academia and the social sciences: the rise of conservative ideologues in academia whose tendentious studies are paid for by private sources and think tanks with a specific ideological axe to grind. The Intelligence Report spoke to Sherkat about the Regnerus study and its flaws.
