Gay Americans believe in God but prefer not to attend churches


New research found that ¾ of lesbian, gay and bisexual Americans are not supportive of organized religions, but they are still believers. The finding comes from a Pew Research Center analysis of data from the 2014 Religious Landscape Study. According to the survey data, 77 percent of lesbian, gay and bisexual adults in America say that they believe in God, the percentage is lower than among straight individuals (89%), but it is still very high. But despite three-quarters of gay adults believing in God, only 59 percent of LGB respondents consider themselves belonging to certain faith groups, compared to 78 percent for heterosexuals. Although lesbian, gay and bisexual people are twice as likely to identify as atheist or agnostic, the most popular religious identify among LGBT adults is ‘nothing in particular’.
