To much of the world, Mark Regnerus is a laughingstock.
He’s the University of Texas researcher who, in a deeply flawed and thoroughly debunked study, tried to prove that children fare better with different-sex parents than same-sex parents.
The study was so bad, in fact, that Regnerus’ own university disavowed his work and cited the American Sociological Association’s statement that “the conclusions he draws from his study of gay parenting are fundamentally flawed on conceptual and methodological grounds.” Ever since, his research hasn’t been considered valid in cases opposing the rights of same-sex couples.
In a recent interview with WORLD, a Christian publication, Regnerus threw himself a pity party, saddened that he’s lost the respect of the scientific community and that his life will never be the same since he published the paper. Here are some select gems from the interview (the interviewer’s questions are italicized):
