Are Gay Parents Worse Parents?

The study asked parents from screwed-up households if they'd ever had a homosexual relationship. It did not get involved with children from stable homosexual hosueholds, of which there are many (including mine). The results show that if one of the parents from a broken home has a homsexual relationship, that it doesn't help the kids, who are already going to have difficulties because they are from a broken home. And as far as any of you judgemental imbeciles who are going to claim that there are no stable homosexual households, you don't know that. You haven't been to my house.

Being locked up for life in prison in a homosexual relationship could also be considered stable. i don't think I would want children there.

"judgemental imbeciles"?

I'm referring to STABLE people, who are not committing crimes that would land them in prison. That's an UNstable characterstic for a household, wouldn't you agree?

What is stable? If some one is locked in a prison, they know when and were they will eat, when and where they will sleep, what thet will wear, ect. Many of those people are also involved in homosexual relationships.

Willis - that is a classic statement of the No True Scotsman fallacy...

Also - it fails to explain (or distinguish) why homosexual relationships have flourished in extreme environments...

You don't even know me and you apparently don't know the dozen or so other gay parented households that I know. Now if you want to come to my house and tell me to my face that we're bad parents, I would savor the opportunity to "stand my ground" as you convservatives like to say, while I screw up your face. I don't get in brawls, but I would do that to defend my child.

I would be perfectly happy to tell you to your face...

And I have done so - as a professional representing the children, "gay" parents have abandoned.

As for your personal experience - I am sure you and your friends are doing fine by their children.

Sorry - but that doesn't prove anything - least of all does it mean I would let you and your friends interfere with those who protect children from abuse...

As the nation debates whether to institutionalize same-sex marriage, social scientists have been weighing in -- often with a heavy hand. As Mark Regnerus, author of a new study examining outcomes for children in a variety of home environments, notes social science regarding gay and lesbian parenting has swung from "presents challenges," to "no difference" to "superior" in the space of one decade. The American Psychological Association declared flatly in 2005 that, "Not a single study has found children of lesbian or gay parents to be disadvantaged in any significant respect relative to children of heterosexual parents." That prompted skepticism from...
