Researchers Admit MASSIVE Fraud In Gay Marriage Study

A study purporting to show that people’s views on gay marriage could change simply by meeting gay people has been retracted following revelations that its data was fabricated.

The study was published last December in Science, and prior to publication drew a great deal of attention from the American media. Vox, for instance, described the findings in the study as “kind of miraculous.” As it turns out, that’s exactly what they were, because they were apparently made up.

According to the study, people from communities hostile to gay marriage could have their opinions shift dramatically after spending just a few minutes speaking with a gay person who canvassed their neighborhood promoting gay marriage. Not only that, but this could have a spillover effect, making not just the people themselves more pro-gay but also other people who lived in the same household.

The study, among other things, lent support to the notion that those opposed to gay marriage simply don’t know or interact with open homosexuals. More broadly, it was seen as an important development in the science of how people can be convinced to change their minds on ideologically-charged issues.

The study began to fall apart when students at the University of California at Berkeley sought to conduct additional research building off of it, only to find major irregularities in how its research was apparently conducted. For example, thermometers used to measure participants’ attitudes produced consistent, reliable information, even though they are known for producing relatively unreliable numbers.

Saw this story yesterday ... The thing is the research partner & peer reviewers see the fraud but the cheater says he wants to 'further review' the data -- in other words, he will not admit to the fraud ... The Left lies ... It's who they are and what they do and they're loathe to ever admit their cheating-lying ways.
I believe nothing any Left-oriented group says or publishes.

I don't believe ANY "STUDY" that has as it's central issue of study, one or more of our cultures data characteristics.

And NO WAY do I believe any "POLL" processed by the mainstream media.

There is lying cheating  and fraud at every level in our government and society...! NO HONOR ..., NO RESPECT AND NO CONSCIOUS..., PERIOD....!! 

Our government agencies have been getting away with being liars for the last twenty or thirty years. It just keeps getting worse and worse. Bureaucrats can not be trusted anymore.

honesty is dead in the usa.

Mental imaging is a powerful tool, and for me, it does not need a "study" to convince me that homosexuals are perverts.

"AMEN" !!!!

    This is Brain-Washing to the core.!  What has happened to so many people in and out of public service to jump on the wagon "to Fundamentally Change" Our Nation..?  Only Hope i see is a Secession of the God believing peoples of these United States from the Curse of Immorality walking among us.  If it means another Revolution....So Be IT.....!                                             Semper Fi

Stan, remember what Clinton did with boot camp training?

The lies about alternate lifestyle have never stopped. This is mostly do to radicals in these. They lied about the numbers in these alternate lifestyles by calling anyone that even had a minor childhood experience as gay, male or female. The real numbers were 3% of males and 5% of females are into it. Their lying figures gave 15% for men and 20% for women! I wonder why they lie, and even more, why Liberal media says nothing, but supports the lies?

This study should be to confirm that homosexuality is a birth defect and should be

acknowledged just like being born with down syndrome.  Someday scientists will be able

to determine the cause and possibly a cure.

What a pile of crap.  I've known MANY gays in my lifetime...and nearly ALL of them aren't playing with a full deck.  Not to mention I'm related to several.  Just about everybody these days has at least one person in their family that's gay, but one section of ours...there are FOUR kids, 2 boys and 2 girls.  Out of the four, three of them are gay.  Now there's got to be some behind-the-scene dynamics in their family that THREE OUT OF FOUR are gay.  And the fourth has drug/alcohol problems.  So what's changed in American homes the past 50 years?

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
