A recent study by the Public Religion Research Institute reports that religious 18 to 29 year olds (“millennials”) support LG equality more than their 65 and above counterparts. Wait, you mean that people born before 1946 aren’t very sympathetic to civil rights? There’s a shock.
Other findings worth noting: all religious denominations (except white evangelicals and black protestants) showed a growing acceptance of LGBT tolerance along with the general American public. And more than 60 percent of all Americans think that negative religious messages contribute to LG youth suicides.
Who knew that constantly being called “an abomination worthy of death” could have such negative consequences?
