The Chief Rabbi of France is French

February 13th, 2013 by G.

The Chief Rabbi of France has some keen insight into marriage and sexuality, if you can get over the frenchiness of his language, even in translation.

WOW! Excellent reasoning. Powerful arguments.

Not quite as exalted as the Chief Rabbi of the Tribe of Judah in France, but Taki’s Magazine had a few good things to say about French opposition to gay marriage, other than a few comments it would have been better to have left out. Still, worth reading.

“The correlation between the percentage of a state’s population that identifies as LGBT and its fertility rate is an inverse .31 (p = .03). This modest relationship means that one-tenth of a state’s fertility rate is ‘attributable’ to the proportional size of its LGBT population.”

Zen, can you tanslate that last bit into simpler english? Statistics was not my strong suit in math.

Terms also need to be defined. Is “fertility rate” a fraction of the entire population, or a fraction of women of child-bearing age?

The quote seems to be saying that the size of the LGBT population has an effect on overall fertility (if expressed as a fraction of the entire population) 10% greater than its own fraction of the population.
