Summary

Research on the attitudes of heterosexual churchgoers is extensive. However, very little empirical information is available about the attitudes held by gay and lesbian Christians. In the current study, it was hypothesized that gay and lesbian Christians, unlike their heterosexual peers, would demonstrate desire for and acceptance of social closeness with other gay and lesbian people, whether or not the person was sexually active, and would desire social distance from homophobic persons and those who reject same-sex relationships. Results of questionnaires completed by 282 gay men and lesbians confirm these hypotheses and indicate significant relationships between social distance and religious motivation and an individual's approach to scripture. Results also suggest that social distance may be an inadequate measure of prejudice in this population. (Contains 24 references.) (Author/JDM)
