Lies as Moral Values for Bush, Inc.
Rex Wockner: Dubya'd again, twice:
You probably heard that George W. Bush told The New York Times on Jan. 29, 'Studies have shown that the ideal is where a child is raised in a married family with a man and a woman.'
Trouble is, studies haven't.
More than 25 studies have compared the social, academic, mental and emotional lives of kids raised by married hetero parents with those of kids raised by gay couples and found a grand, whopping result of ... no difference.
On the other hand, kids raised by single parents or by unmarried heterosexual parents living together do sometimes score lower on social scientists' tally sheets. 'There is not a single legitimate scholar out there who argues that growing up with gay parents is somehow bad for children,' New York University professor Judith Stacey confirmed in an interview with the Times.
Thank you, Rex.
