Well, here it is. This is the new science that Conservatives believe. No more same sex marriages, no more civil unions. The man and woman need to stay married to protect children. Blah, blah, blah.

Why Conservatives Believe in Anti-Gay Pseudo-Science
The anti-gay-rights movement's claims about homosexuality are based on the worst kind of junk "science."
May 3, 2012 |
On May 8, North Carolinians will vote on a constitutional amendment that defines a marriage between a man and a woman as the “only domestic legal union” the state will recognize -- thereby barring LGBT marriage equality. The amendment would also ban civil unions, and end domestic partner benefits, like prescription drug and health care coverage, for the partners and children of public employees. At its deepest level, this issue is about fairness for everyone under the law. But less mentioned is that it is also about science, and what’s factually true.
Many voters who go to the polls to support Amendment One will do so believing outright falsehoods about same-sex marriages and civil unions. In particular, they hold the belief that such partnerships are damaging to the health and well-being of the children raised in them. That is, after all, one of the chief justifications for the amendment.
