An irritating article at Science Daily:
"The presumption that children need both a mother and a father is widespread. It has been used by proponents of Proposition 8 to argue against same-sex marriage and to uphold a ban on same-sex adoption."
That's the lead-in.

This "presumption" is based on Biblical principles. That God created the first family with a man and a woman. Many conservatives have forgotten this, and simply rely on tradition or pragmatism. This makes them vulnerable to the current study...
"The bottom line is that the science shows that children raised by two same-gender parents do as well on average as children raised by two different-gender parents. This is obviously inconsistent with the widespread claim that children must be raised by a mother and a father to do well,"
Of course, there is the definition of "do well". Does that mean "make as much money as", or "achieve the same level of education" or what? It certainly does not mean "honor God".
