Even though far-right politicians and pundits would have you think differently, a new national survey finds that Americans of almost all religions and no religion support LGBTQ protections.
From Freedom From Religion Foundation:
Eight in 10 Americans (80 percent) in the Public Religion Research Institute survey support laws against discrimination in jobs, public accommodations and housing against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.
Even 62 percent of white evangelical Protestants, tied with Hispanic Protestants, favor such nondiscrimination laws.
Jehovah’s Witnesses were at the bottom of the barrel, yet half support nondiscrimination protections.
Nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of Americans oppose permitting businesses to discriminate against LGBTQ customers on religious grounds.
Those most willing to discriminate are Mormons (only 46 percent oppose such discrimination) and white Protestants (only 37 percent support LGBTQ rights to service).

A new national survey found that Americans of almost all religions and no religion are more supportive of LGBTQ rights, which is eye-opening in combating religiously motivated state legislators, governors and members of Congress attacking LGBTQ rights.https://t.co/GsdWsf0SUe pic.twitter.com/pCdMmPWCZX
