USA: New Poll Shows Catholics Disagree With Leaders on Marriage Equality, Other Topics

Written by scott on March 6th, 2013

titleThere’s a new poll out from CBS News and the New York Times. It polled US Catholics on a variety of topics. Think Progress reports:

A new poll from CBS News/New York Times shows a significant gulf between what the hierarchy of the Catholic Church teaches and what American Catholics actually believe. Even those who attend Mass frequently are quite far out of step from how the bishops are spending their time and money. Here’s a quick glimpse at the disconnect: 62 percent of Catholics favor same-sex marriage. 79 percent favor the use of artificial methods of birth control.

We’ve seen similar polling before, but you have to love that Catholic support for marriage equality is even higher than the country as a whole.
