Anti-gay group NOM deliberately cites new work of discredited professor Mark Regnerus

Last weekend, I joked with a friend that a tactic of the anti-gay right is to constantly repeat their inaccuracies no matter how many times they are refuted because the constant repetition will desensitize the lgbt community to their lies. This would serve to prevent us from becoming outraged.

It was a joke, but I think, after reading an item from fellow blogger Jeremy Hooper, it's a serious point to ponder:

Even though University of Texas (Austin) Professor Mark Regnerus is now discredited (by several sources including his own sociology department, the American Sociological Association, and a federal judge), the National Organization for Marriage continues to trumpet his work as if it is gold.

Naturally it's an anti-marriage equality study (if you want the details, check out Jeremy's explanation), so I'm not surprised.

What gets me is that this so-called moral, Christian organization is actually trying to get away with this subterfuge.

I guess it says a lot about the integrity of this so-called moral, Christian organization, doesn't it?
