Homosexuals Going To Hell, Says "Expert" In Michigan Gay Marriage Ban Case (But Their Kids Inexplicably Do Just Fine)

Abby Zimet

The final witness in a trial challenging Michigan's ban on same-sex marriage and adoption, an economist who has authored 60 highly dubious, hate-group-funded gay parenting "studies," testified he believes that "unrepentant" homosexuals will suffer "eternal damnation" in the fires of hell - a belief, one straight-faced state official assured the court, that has had “no impact on his research or the data it produces." Another star witness in the trial, which has focused on the outcomes of children raised in same-sex families, was a sociologist whose research has shown those kids to be "disadvantaged," but who under questioning conceded that nobody really knows just how those kids will turn out and actually they could be just fine. So: the final, feeble, fading players of the culture wars. Closing arguments are today.
