BREAKING: Christianist Website Tells Truth About Gay Parenting

So I was reading this typically OUTRAGED!! story on World Net Daily about the state of California having pitched in for two measly billboards promoting gay adoption....
Randy Thomasson, president of Campaign for Children and Families, a California pro-family organization, released a statement saying the state has no business sponsoring the campaign when it has decided to issue taxpayers IOUs in place of their annual returns. "At a time when the state doesn't have enough money to provide hard-working people with their tax refunds, it's a shame that state and county funds are being wasted on this propaganda," he said.
Pretty typical stuff, right? But then near the bottom of the story, I almost fell out of my chair to see that, for ONCE, the site had included some honest-to-gosh true information.
  • A significantly greater proportion of young adult children raised by lesbian mothers than those raised by heterosexual mothers say they have experienced sexual intimacy with a partner of the same sex. They were not, however, statistically more likely to identify themselves as gay or lesbian.
  • Young girls raised by lesbians are more likely to be sexually adventurous and active than their counterparts raised by heterosexual parents. However the sons of lesbians exhibit "an opposite pattern" and are likely to be less adventurous and active than boys raised by heterosexual households.
  • Lesbian mothers reported that their children behave in ways that do not conform to "sex-typed cultural norms." And the sons of lesbians are reportedly less likely to behave in traditionally masculine ways than those raised by heterosexual couples.
Did you see that? Something actually true about gay people has been posted on a Christianist site. Insanity! Gay people really DON'T adopt children to recruit them into our perverted lifestyle.
