Americans who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender are significantly less likely than non-LGBT Americans to be highly religious, and significantly more likely to be classified as not religious. These results are based on more than 104,000 Gallup Daily tracking interviews conducted between Jan. 2 and July 31, 2014, including 3,242 adults who identified themselves as lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender. Some of the major findings include: 26% of LGBT Americans attend religious services at least once a week as compared to 42% of non-LGBT respondents; religion is not important in the daily lives of more than half (51%) of all LGBT Americans compared with 34% of non-LGBT; the majority of gays identified as Protestant (35%,) followed by no-religious affiliation (33%,) then Catholic (20%.)
Author’s note: This sad state of affairs for my gay brothers and sisters has somewhat to do with doctrine, but also reveals much about the mind-set of homosexuals. While most are angered by the teachings of certain Christian denominations, particularly the Catholics, which condemn homosexuals acts as gravely sinful, many gays have already created their own set of deities upon the sexual pantheon: in gay male culture this is specifically symbolized by the worship of the masculine archetype; in the lesbian community its within the adulation of the fleshy nurturing mother goddess. For the most part, these cure-alls poured upon their wounded psyches have replaced any inner need for a greater power - as the fantasy promises happiness and healing on Earth.
