Mitt Romney: It's better to have dead straight parents than live gay ones

During a recent speech at Luther College in Iowa, Mitt Romney said this:

"And I believe that the development of children is enhanced by having a male and a female as part of their upbringing in their home. Even when there’s a divorce, you still have a mom and a dad. And even where one member of the partnership may pass away, the memory and the characteristics of that gender, of that partner influence the development of a child. I'm in favor of promoting, as a society, the marriage of men and women and the development of children in that kind of setting."

I mean, he has a point. I'm sure orphans everywhere are overjoyed that they are developing according to the "memory and characteristics" of their dead straight parents, rather than being corrupted by living gay parents.

How was this guy ever elected governor of Massachusetts?

It's also just such a downright stupid answer on Mitt's part. Seriously, are gay parents going to prevent their children from ever being in contact with people of a different gender than themselves? As a Quenchista once pointed out on this issue, are they going to raise the children in a bath house?

If dead parents can impart the legend of their gender upon their children, then certainly living friends and family members can do the same.

Please, Mr. Romney, show me one study where any of what you say is true.
