Fr. Paul Sullins, Ph.D., is a married Catholic priest and Senior Research Associate of the Ruth Institute. He recently retired as Professor of Sociology at the Catholic University of America. Dr. Sullins is a leader in the field of research on same-sex parenting and its implications for child development.
