Man behind politically-motivated, discredited research supports same

by Jeremy Hooper

Mark Regnerus' 2012 study purporting to make gay families seem subpar has been so thoroughly discredited and its political motivations so exhaustively uncovered, I no longer even feel a need to address it. In Google, as in credible scientific circles, "Regnerus" is now synonymous with politically-driven, point-of-view research designed to discredit a certain population.

So you have to laugh when you see Regnerus, writing for the uber-conservative website Public Discourse (a project of the same Witherspoon Institute that was behind Regnerus' anti-gay research), lending credence to a new Canadian study in which longtime "pro-marriage" guy Douglas Allen, a board member of the anti-gay National Organization For Marriage's Ruth Institute, purports to have more "evidence" that we gay folk suck as parents:

It's kind of Ted Cruz agreeing with Michele Bachmann that Barack Obama is a bad president. Except, of course, those two are at least honest about their goals of undermining POTUS.
