but I have everything against distortion of science to promote your own beliefs.

That sounds like another problem in another thread!


At least in this case, I thnk that most of the people who believe this kind of thing are the religious ones who believe that homosexuality is a sin.  I doubt it has much pull with most other people.

Gah.  I hate this kind of thing. While my PERSONAL beliefs include homosexuality being a sin and that sex should be saved for marriage (and I was married at 21), I don’t believe in skewing science to make your point. And I don’t believe it is a vaild point to begin with! I also can fully acknowloge that in a country like America, people don’t all agree with me, nor should they have to. But it irks me to no end when the claws come out, the mud starts flying and people can’t figure out that screaming and fighting never swayed anyones views in a positive manner.

Annoying, but unsurprising. It’s not the only parenting based “research” that skews results. They do the same thing with “single parent homes”…they always claim that children raised by single mothers do worse, but when you look at the actual data and age/socioeconomic status/education of the individuals involved, you find that the only meaningful correlation is level of education of mother & success of the child. It wouldn’t be the first time people skewed “data”, and it won’t be the last.
