A new survey released by the Barna Group focuses on the spiritual lives of gay and straight people.
One thing they had in common?
… The areas of similarity included the facts that a small minority of people in both groups believe that Satan is real…
Well, that’s a plus. Good to know that belief in Satan isn’t being taken that seriously. Though a “small minority” is still far too many people.
One key difference between the two groups:
Heterosexuals were twice as likely as homosexuals to strongly agree that the Bible is totally accurate in all of the principles it teaches;
They don’t elaborate further in the article, but I think you can guess which Biblical principles gay people didn’t quite buy into…
George Barna had this to say about the results — somethings Christians ought to realize when their pastors denounce homosexuals in church:
“People who portray gay adults as godless, hedonistic, Christian bashers are not working with the facts… A substantial majority of gays cite their faith as a central facet of their life, consider themselves to be Christian, and claim to have some type of meaningful personal commitment to Jesus Christ active in their life today.
