During this morning’s Senate DOMA hearings, Sen. Al Franken (D-MN) destroyed Focus on the Family’s Tom Minnery’s argument that children are better off with opposite-sex parents by demonstrating how Minnery misrepresented an HHS study. The study — which Minnery cited to oppose marriage equality — actually found that children do best in two-parent households, regardless of the parents’ gender.Watch it and enjoy:
Please forgive me for being a bit too gleeful at seeing one of the haters at Focus on the Family humiliated, laughed at, and exposed as a liar and a fraud. From the moment I started paying attention to gay issues, which sadly was about 1 hour after learning about my own son, I learned that one of the biggest enemies to the lgbt commnunity and my son was this faux "family advocate" organization, Focus on the Family (FOF). To this day, the hair on the back of my neck stands up if someone even whispers James Dobson's name. And yes, I know the old coot has stepped down from the day-to-day tasks of being chief homophobe and bigot at FOF, but he is still very active and powerful in other areas of the very lucrative hate industry and his love child, FOF, still has its bulls-eye on the back of our glbt loved ones.
