Poll Results: Many Shocked By New Vatican Gay Policy
Fifty per cent of Americans responding to a recent survey were shocked to hear that the Vatican has announced that "active gays" are unwelcome in the priesthood.
Half of those polled demanded to know what the Vatican policy was prior to its announcement. Another twenty-five per cent of those responding asked if the Vatican was still accepting sluggish, "couch potato"-type gays as priests. The remaining twenty-five per cent of respondents wanted to know where all the active gays were supposed to go if the Vatican wasn't taking them anymore.
None of those surveyed thought that "sexually active" gay priests should compromise with the new Vatican policy and "just lay there."
More than three people participated in the survey, which was conducted at this web site and has an margin of error of about, oh, two per cent. Please take a moment to participate in this week's survey, which you will find below and to the right.
