Probably not that big of a surprise.Like global warming the gay marriage "discussion" is agenda driven and there are more than enough leftist organizations out there willing to massage data or even out and out lie to advance the agenda.
Study on gay marriage views retracted after allegations of fake data
One of the authors of a recent study that claimed that short conversations with gay people could change minds on same-sex marriage has retracted it.I've always found it kind of strange that all these "polls" supposedly indicate majority support for homosexual marriage and yet not one state has managed to enact homosexual marriage legislation through a popular vote.
Columbia University political science professor Donald Green’s retraction this week of a popular article published in the December issue of the academic journal Science follows revelations that his co-author allegedly faked data for the study, “When contact changes minds: An experiment on transmission of support of gay marriage.”
According to the academic watchdog blog Retraction Watch, Green published a retraction of the paper Tuesday after confronting co-author Michael LaCour, a graduate assistant at UCLA.
The study received widespread coverage from The New York Times, Vox, The Huffington Post, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal and others when it was released in December.~snip~
I think we're just now discovering why.
