Homosex Adoptions: Not Too Good

This may eventually get into MSM, but don't bet on it.

A study presented at the symposium in Mexico, “Homosexual Adoption: What Science Has Discovered,” revealed that most children adopted by same-sex couples display “greater levels of stress,” and suffer from “suicidal tendencies and attempts.”

The symposium was organized by the Mexican Institute on Sexual Orientation, “Renacer,” in order to provide scientific information about homosexuality, homosexual adoptions and their impact on child development.

During his presentation, George A. Rekers, Professor of Neuropsychiatry and Behavioral Science at the University of South Carolina, said that “boys and girls adopted by lesbian and homosexual couples show a greater level of stress than that which is already generated by their status as orphans or children abandoned by their biological parents.” He added that this situation “produces diverse trauma and behavioral disorders that can even lead to suicidal tendencies or attempts.

“According to various studies containing testimonies from children of homosexual parents, most them of admit to suffering strong emotions, such as fear, anxiety, apprehension, shame and anger in trying to hide from their friends and relatives the homosexuality of their father or mother,” he continued.

Adoptive families

Likewise, addressing the issue of homosexual “marriage,” the study pointed out that “they are significantly and substantially less stable and shorter on average compared with marriages between a man and woman.” Consequently, “homes with a homosexual adult inevitably contribute to substantially higher rate of changes in adoptive homes.

“Due to the high incidence of psychological disorders among children who enter the adoptive care system,” those “living with a practicing homosexual in the adoptive home,” are especially “ vulnerable to psychological damage and an increasing inability to adapt,” Rekers said.

It's only one study, so far.

In other words, this symposium confirms common sense?

Let's see... an anti-gay author, leader of at least two anti-gay political groups writes an anti-gay article that he presents as social science but can't get it published in a social science journal, so instead he publishes it -- as an opinion piece -- in a law journal owned by an anti-gay university. Then his "research" imbued with the authority of having been published gets presented at an anti-gay conference put on by an anti-gay organization. Then an anti-gay "news organization" picks up the story, further sanitizing the origins of the "research" and bloggers, who are either complicit in the distortion or, let's be charitable, unaware of the mendacity going on, comment on the story and promote it.

It's sort of like a ponzi scheme for the bearing of false witness.

Beer, Bicycles and the VRWC said... by that logic, everything we hear from the MSM is suspect? Thanks for the confirmation.

And the (alleged) AGW thing....opinion, right? Or sorry...that's "fraud".

Catholic News Agency is no less "news" than ABC,NBC, CBS and the rest of the alphabet. That you don't like CNS doesn't change that.

As Dad says,"It's ONE study". It's noteworthy. News in the US is just afraid to report the "Politically Incorrect"

U of South Carolina is "anti-gay"?

You can prove that, of course.

Of course it is. A Leftist say-so is all that is required as proof.
