Minnesota For Marriage today released what can only be classified as a desperate attempt to sway voters in their losing proposition to ban same-sex marriage in their constitution. The Minnesota anti-gay organization, which uses Kally Yanta, a former journalist to spew anti-gay falsehoods, has now decided to pull out all the stops and use the fraudulent, flawed Regnerus anti-gay parenting “study” that The New Civil Rights Movement’s own Scott Rose has meticulous dissected and debunked — finding what many would call corruption behind it.
In this new video titled, ”Children raised by a same-sex parent are significantly worse off compared to those raised by their traditionally married parents” — which can only be characterized as a blatent falsehood — Yanta says “there are very significant highly-negative outcomes” between children raised by a mother and father and by a parent who has had a same-sex relationship.
Of course, as we all know, the Regnerus study, paid for by NOM-linked ultra-conservative groups like the Witherspoon Institute, is a fraud. But that not stopping Yanta from spreading the lies that even its embattled author has said should not be used.
NOM, the National Organization For Marriage, is one of three anti-gay organizations that make up a supposedly “broad coalition of leaders, both inter-faith and people outside the religious community, who support the Minnesota Marriage Amendment and asked the Legislature to place it on the ballot.”
Yanta claims the study’s reviewers “support the quality and integrity of the research.”
Well, 200 sociologists who signed a letter would totally disagree.
Even the person the study’s publisher retained to examine the study called it, and I quote, “bullshit.”
