Spanish watchdog group says government manipulating figures on homosexual population

.- A Spanish watchdog group is reporting that the country’s Vice President, Maria Teresa Fernandez de la Vega, lied when she claimed that there are four million homosexuals in Spain by citing figures from the National Statistic Institute.

According to the civil rights website Hazteoir.org, “The government has had no scruples in multiplying by seven the number of homosexuals according to the National Institute of Statistics in 2003.”

Moreover, regarding adoption by homosexuals, the website pointed out that Fernandez de la Vega “lied again when she said ‘the majority of Spaniards believe that what’s most important is the wellbeing of the child, regardless of the sexual orientation of his or her parents.”

”According to a June 2004 study of the National Institute, 49% of Spaniards (versus 40%) believe heterosexual couples best guarantee the wellbeing of children, and 77% (versus 10%) say homosexual couples do not guarantee the wellbeing of children,” reported the website.
