New record: Anti-gay activist Ralph Reed contradicts self in less than minute

by Jeremy Hooper

Ralph Reed at the 7:02 mark, pushing lies that have been laughed out of federal court:

"The social science is irrefutable: a child who grows up in a home without the mother and father present, and they both very unique procreative, nurturing, and socializing roles, they’re nine times more likely to end up dropping out of high school; they’re five times more likely to end up in poverty; and they’re three times more likely to end up addicted to drugs and alcohol.”

Reed at 7:40 mark, contradicting the pretense that he himself stated just forty seconds prior:

I think the social science is just simply not in yet on same-sex couples

The venue: ABC's This Week:


(H/t: Joe Jervis)

Shorter Reed: "I have no data, I'm not a social scientist, but I am a paid political operative hellbent on pushing my personal theology into public policy at the expense of LGBT people and their children. Happy Easter. He is Risen (and so are my consulting fees)."
