    No study has concluded that having the only factor in parenting different when raising children being the relative genders of the parents causes any negative outcomes. In similar parenting situations, gender of the parents simply is not a factor.
    Humans are social creatures, and especially for young children the presence of positive individuals of both sexes appears to be the most beneficial. As an example little boys without a male in the home have higher rates of criminal activity, and girls have higher rates of teen pregnancy, etc.

    Additionally there are higher rates of problems in the gay community, like domestic violence and drug use. Does that mean its a problem for all gay parents? Of course not. Is that a concern in finding the absolute best environment for a child? Absolutely.

    Here's an example:

    Because this has nothing to do with gays getting wedding cakes and everything to do with lefty identity politics.
    The left is simply paralyzed when it comes to minorities who also disagree with gay marriage because of religious or cultural reasons.
    But then again, they are a fellow identity politic group, and so they are allies.

    Gay Totalitarianism and the Coming Persecution of Christians

    LGBT Totalitarianists and complicit Biased Lame Steam Media be not proud
    He spat out Nazi's? I can think of no comment by the RFRA haters that more fully demonstrates the pathological stupidity infecting the left. Mind you, this economist is well educated and a professional. His sin is not in an exaggeration, but in how he let his raw emotions lower his IQ to single digits, a mockery of his humanities education.

    Two days ago was the anniversary of “Judenboycott,” the first in a wave of anti-Semitic measures. On April 1, 1933 the iNAZI's called for the boycott of Jewish businesses, even though they represented 1 percent of Germany's population. Their supportive propagandists spread hatred of a religious based group, and newspaper "Der Sturmer" called for a non-violent boycott to close all Jewish business.

    SA storm troopers were ordered to stand in front of Jewish shops, department stores and offices to "protest" the Jew shops. Large Stars of David were painted on storefronts and propaganda signs were displayed, such as one pronouncing, “Germans, defend yourselves against Jewish atrocity propaganda—buy only at German shops!”.

    The boycott marked the beginning of a series of anti-Semitic laws that gradually alienated Jews from German society. And, as we all know, by 1938 it led to "Kristallnacht", literally (aka “Night of Broken Glass,”). Jewish businesses were be destroyed as well as synagogues. The windows of an estimated 7,500 Jewish-owned stores were broken, creating a blanket of glass in the streets.

    Now, how is it that it is the Christian businesses that are Nazi's? How is it that the campaign of vilification and the boycott and physical threats against any Christian business that EVEN EXPRESSES an opinion makes them Nazi's?

    Yes there are "nazi's", self-styled storm trooper propagandists making threats, boycotting, and calling for violence against Christian business(es) - And we all know who is seeking to destroy those who express a different opinion.

    We should thank this economist for his blunder, he has found a perfect analogy for what the gay-left lobby is about (albeit one that mocks him).

    How is it demonizing to say that they prefer not to participate in something that violates their conscience? I wonder if you feel the same about those that consciously object to fighting in a war?
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    When a business signs up for a business license to sell to the public and agrees to abide by the municipal laws that go along with that privilege.

    A conscientious objector who was conscripted didn't sign up for anything - except being born. That conscientious objector *still* must serve the government in some capacity - Their religious belief does not relieve them of mandatory government service.
