Several days ago, Focus on the Family released a reaction to an article written by Jennifer Chrisler, of Family Pride, in Time magazine, posted December 14th. Ms. Chrisler’s article was a rebuttal to a controversial article by James Dobson regarding Mary Chaney’s pregnancy. Dobson has been widely criticized among gay activists for misquoting research.

In Jennifer Chrisler’s original Time article, she wrote:

According to the 2000 census, the vast majority — more than 75% — of American children, are being raised in families that differ in structure from two married, heterosexual parents and their biological children.

However, in the current Time article online, she wrote:

According to the 2000 census, the vast majority — more than 75% — of American households differ in structure from two married, heterosexual parents and their biological children.

I discovered this discrepancy this morning when I was preparing to blog about the Focus on the Family rebuttal.

Maggi Gallagher posted a letter from Jennifer Chrisler explaining a bit more about the matter. In Ms. Chrisler’s letter, she acknowledges her error and asked Time to correct it.
