Fact Check of the Day: At a hearing for a bill to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act, Senator Al Franken calls out Thomas Minnery of the anti-gay nonprofit Focus on the Family for mischaracterizing a Department of Health and Human Services study as supporting his claim that children a much better off with heterosexual parents.

In fact, the cited study says children benefit from living in nuclear families, irrespective of the parents’ sexual orientation.
