Re: “Study finds ‘suboptimal’ results” (letter, 4-9).

It appears that the opposition to marriage equality is clutching at straws. A recent study was cited to “prove” that gay marriage is “suboptimal,” yet the author of the study, Mark Regenerus, has admitted that this study was not actually about gay marriage since only two couples of the 3,000 adults he interviewed were actually in a long term same-sex relationship.

Just for the record, this “scientific study” was heavily funded by the Witherspoon Foundation to attempt to provide “evidence” against same-sex marriage for the current Supreme Court challenge.
