Thank you for posting this. Very interesting!

I don't buy a lot of the answers. I think, in a blank context, people are okay about it, but put them in front of their friends, and they'll become raging homophobes. Sociology at its finest. Not.

This is interesting:

>It is a sin to engage in homosexual behavior: 44% yes, 46% no

>Homosexuality is a way of life that should be accepted by society: 61% yes, 33% no

Don't these two things contradict each other to some degree?

Note the "homosexuals working in sports" section. Interesting how people are torn about having homosexuals near their children (or watching in their locker rooms), but otherwise it's okay. People persist in thinking that gays "recruit" or are pedophiles or voyeurs or some stupidity.

I heard tell of someone who was using the surge in pinot noir sales in the wake of Sideways as proof that Americans can't be trusted to make decisions when exposed to media.

I would submit this poll as proof that Americans shouldn't be allowed to vote on civil rights issues. The people in this random sample seem utterly incapable of maintaining a cohesive line of thought on the subject.
