    It’s scholarly, but decipherable! 😉 I, too, am glad it was done. There’ve been others that were lost in the middles of huge newspapers, but this one seems to be seeing the light of day and making the rounds. Yay.

    It is frustrating to be someone on the dissenting side of the gay-marriage debate. I am genuinely concerned for our society. We seem to have lost our collective mind. Wrong is the new right, and anyone saying otherwise is a “bigot”. I don’t hate anyone, but I do think we need to look closely, and honestly at issues like this one before cementing “if it feels good, do it” into law.

      CM! So glad you left this comment!
      I believe God knew what would happen to these children and it’s the general hatred of children that causes so many to think nothing wrong is going on. God loves children, though, as Jesus proved, and made laws to protect them. Our nation took up those laws, too, in deference to His higher wisdom, and in love for the children.
      Now, look at the mess we have.

        I don’t think anyone is weighing the broader social implications when they advocate we adopt “new” ways of creating families and living in those families. It all smacks of trying to reinvent the wheel and/or flouting our most deeply ingrained psychological needs. I would never advocate for the persecution of others, but I don’t feel comfortable endorsing behavior that is known for such bad outcomes. This is a social experiment on a grand scale and the children will pay for it. You’re right, there isn’t any love for children in this action–only love of self and fleeting desires. 😦

          Plus, probably the results of parents too engaged in other things than raising Godly kids, themselves. Now we all pay for the ignorance of a few. It is hard, I agree.

    Thank you for sharing this. I read the entire study, and it is very interesting. I like that the author(s) admits to not really showing causation, per se, but merely trends. And it’s interesting to see comparisons with single-parent families, divorced families, and others. Oh, and I also like that the author(s) shows the downfalls of previous studies about homosexual households as they have been compared to intact households. Very eye-opening.

Is this making ANY sense?
