Regnerus Cleared By UT-Austin

A sociologist under fire from homosexual activists for his national study that found “numerous, consistent differences” between the young adult children of same-sex parents and those raised in intact families is no longer being investigated by the University of Texas at Austin. The university found “no formal investigation is warranted into the allegations of scientific misconduct lodged against associate professor Mark Regnerus regarding his July article in the journal Social Science Research.”

UT-Austin launched the inquiry into Professor Regnerus’ research after receiving a letter of complaint from homosexual activist and blogger, “Scott Rose,” who accused Regnerus of “scientific misconduct.”

Since the study’s release, homosexual activists, the media, and some sociologists have attacked Professor Regnerus and the study.
