In the report, called “Public Opinion and Discourse on the Intersection of LGBT Issues and Race,” we learn some more sad mess.
According to them, a majority of Black folks think being gay is a choice.
From Atlanta BlackStar:
Just 36 percent of the country believes that being gay is a choice, but the report found that 47 percent of Black Americans believe homosexuality to be a choice. More Latinos believed that people are born gay than the total sample, the report said, with 52 percent of Latinos believing people are born gay, compared with 42 percent overall.
Demonstrating the influence of religion on this issue, people who go to church weekly are far less likely to be pro-LGBT—24 percent of weekly church-goers support marriage equality compared with 57 percent of people who rarely or never attend worship services.Mess! See, this is why I do what I do.
Somebody has to be out and about in the Black community, telling the truth. And the first truth to tell is this: Being Gay is not a Choice.
