Research shows homosexuality more common among children of broken families

CWN - May 27, 2010

Patrick Fagan of the Family Research Council-- whose "Mapping America" project has provided a steady stream of revealing statistical insights into the connections between religious faith and social stability-- has found that lesbian relationships are disproportionately common among women raised in broken families. Fagan offers an explanation:

The social order built on the sacred order (best known through the Church’s doctrine) provides the natural environment in which the sexuality of children is most likely to blossom normally and lead to sexual competence as adults. The less the social order is built on that sacred order, the more likely sexual dysfunction will flourish – and the more persons with homosexual attractions we will have amongst us. There is no need for a “gay gene” to explain a lot of this.
