Mark Regnerus' telling aside: 'Mr Peters, remember that?'

by Jeremy Hooper

To save some time, I'm going to assume you know the name Mark Regnerus and that you're aware of how aggressively the National Organization For Marriage has tried to used his very flawed research to call same-sex parenting (and marriage, by extension) into question. And I'm going to also assume, if you are a regular reader of this site, that you have some familiarity with the name Thomas Peters, the man who has served several roles with NOM but who now serves as the anti-equality organization's Communications Director.

Here now, a very short clip that marries those two names, seeming to give us even more evidence of the close relationship between Regnerus and NOM. See if you catch it:

Hear it, at the : mark? When talking about the day his study was released, Mr. Regnerus asks of his fellow speaker at this particular conference: "Mr. Peters, remember that?" He says it as if they are old war buddies looking back on a particular battle. Here in a room with many unfamiliar faces, he turns to his compatriot for a knowing exchange. It is clear that their memory of the study's release is a shared one. It would seem, to me at least, that Peters and Regnerus were in touch on that day (at the very least).

Not that we even need more evidence of the fingerprints on Mr. Regnerus' obviously agenda-guided work. But this would certainly seem to be some.
