As if it matters...

So what difference does it make? 
Oh what difference does it make? 
It makes none... 
Oh I'm too tired
 I'm so sick and tired 
And I'm feeling very sick and ill today...
--The Smiths

 At some point you became politically aware. You watched with interest the ongoing debates, your own sophistication growing with your familiarity. In quiet moments, usually alone reading, you experienced the small thrill of discovery or disillusion. It was exciting. You even came to feel a certain power in knowledge, and thus in yourself.
 But all the while you retained an expectation, a sort of residual childhood innocence, an expectation confident in the superiority of American liberty and nursed by the familiar story arc of Hollywood, that despite the travesties and calamities along the way the truth will out in the end, despite the protestations of the bigoted and the vested interests. Because it always does. Schmuck.
This thought came to mind as I came upon this:
Dr. Douglas Allen, Burnaby Mountain professor of economics at Simon Fraser University, tells OneNewsNow that he, Dr. Catherine Pakaluk of Ave Marie University, and Dr. Joseph Price of Brigham Young University took a look at a large study conducted by Stanford sociologist Dr. Michael Rosenfeld that found no difference between children who are reared by heterosexual parents and those raised by homosexual couples. The three found a mistake in the research that completely alters the outcome. "It turns out the children from these homes don't do as well. They're about 35 percent more likely to fail a grade," Allen reports about youngsters raised by homosexuals.
Does anyone think any amount of data or debunking is going to stop the juggernaut? Does anyone think the Gay Lobby even cares what's true? They will prevail, and we will adjust.

It's really all very simple. All true facts are complementary about homosexuals or affirm their mainstream status, while anything negative or suggestive of deviation from the norm is a lie.
