"Heather Has No Daddy" is Just Fine with President Obama

On June 13, marking "Homosexual Pride Month," President Obama hosted two little girls being raised in a household by two women.You can't expect little girls to be familiar with social science data, but that is part of the job description of the President of the United States.

Here is some of the data on children being raised in a household without  a father, from a column today at Christian Post, called "From Father Knows Best to Father Doesn't Matter":

"The U.S. Department of Health notes that 63% of youth suicides come from fatherless homes – five times the normal average. The Center for Disease Control notes that 85% of all children who have mental or behavioral disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the normal average. The Journal of Family and Culture once noted an over 100% increase in juvenile self-identification as "homosexual" once a father leaves the home. Pediatrics journal noted in 2011 that homosexual teens are five times more likely to commit suicide than heterosexual teens. Fatherless teenage girls are 711% more likely to have children as a teen, 53% more likely to marry as a teen, and 92% more likely to get divorced. Over 50% of women in prison came from fatherless homes. Over two-thirds of teens in chemical dependence programs come from fatherless homes. And, according to the National Principals Association, some 71% of high school drop-outs come from fatherless homes."
