    It's true that evangelical Christians are more anti-gay than non-evangelical Christians, and it's also true that Christians are disproportionately anti-gay compared to the general population and especially compared to non-religious.  Christians might, however, be slightly less anti-gay than Muslims ... but that's a pretty low bar, isn't it?

          when i go to the link the stats on religion graphic doesn't fully load for the breakdown as well as when i go to their own pdf, it does not give the breakdowns either.

          so you've got one poll on one question.

          here's another one commissioned by the Human Rights Campaign that delves into many facets of LGBT rights - it's pretty comprehensive. and it definitely does not find a disproportionate percentage of Christians are anti-gay. not even close.

          just sayin'... you're speaking in "facts" that don't have all that much concrete evidence behind them, only suppositions.
