Americans now see gays as more ‘favourable’ than Evangelicals

Well, halle-fucking-lujah, Americans are finally becoming disillusioned with religious oppression. 

A new poll commissioned by the Human Rights Campaign and conducted by Greenberg Quinlan Rosner Research and TargetPoint Consulting surveyed 1,000 Americans likely to vote in the 2016 presidential election. The results showed that 53 percent of Americans view homosexuality and gay rights favourably compared to 42 percent who view Evangelical Christians favourably. Only 18 percent view homosexuality unfavourably, while 28 percent view Evangelical Christians unfavourably.

The study also reveals that 75 percent of Americans know a gay person personally and that progress is being seen in the world of sport, with 79 percent judging a football player based on his ability and not his sexuality.
