The Washington Post could barely contain its excitement in a new headline, "Children of same-sex couples are happier and healthier than peers, research shows." This was double trouble, since the Post got its analysis wrong, and the latest study out of Australia suffers from the same flaws as almost all other pro-homosexual parenting research. The study is not of same-sex couples, but of "same-sex attracted parents," who may or may not be in a relationship. It found that children with such a parent scored higher on measures of "general health," "general behavior," and "family cohesion" -- yet lower (by less than the margin of error) on "mental health."
But the data are of dubious value to begin with, because they are based on the parents' own self-report ("My kid is doing great!") rather than a more objective measure; and they are drawn from a "convenience sample" (like people responding to an ad in the "gay" media) rather than a genuinely random one.
Turns out, bashing Christians isn't nearly as funny as ABC thought it would be. After just one season, the network is calling it quits on TV's "GCB" after outrage and controversy stole the show. The title of the program, "Good Christian [Expletives]" was reason enough for audiences to complain--and with the help of groups like Media Research Center (MRC) and One Million Moms, they did.
Every week, MRC would tally how many times an episode mocked faith or used the Bible in a malicious way. According to Lauren Thompson at MRC's NewsBusters blog, "GCB" usually ridiculed the Christians about 20 times per episode--sometimes more.
Do a majority of Americans really support gay marriage? "Maybe not," the Washington Post admits. For years, headlines have screamed that society is open to redefining marriage. But every time the theory is put to the test, it's proven wrong. As Daniel Horowitz says, the only authentic polling data is votes at the ballot. Thirty-two times, voters have gone to the polls in some of the most liberal states in America and rejected counterfeit marriage--most recently in North Carolina, where a constitutional amendment won by 22 points. Now that President Obama has literally made a federal case out of marriage, the reaction is even more severe.
