Pew Research Center: "Young U.S. Catholics Overwhelmingly Accepting of Homosexuality

Posted on the 17 October 2014 by William Lindsey @wdlindsy

Yesterday, the Pew Research Center study published an article by Michael Lipka, editor of Pew's Religion and Public Life project, with a headline reading, "Young U.S. Catholics Overwhelmingly Accepting of Homosexuality." The article notes the following:
1. Fully 85% of self-identified Catholics ages 18-29 said in a 2014 Pew Research Center survey that homosexuality should be accepted by society, compared with just 13% who said it should be discouraged.
2. [E]ven among churchgoing Catholics of all ages – that is, those who attend Mass at least weekly – roughly twice as many say homosexuality should be accepted (60%) as say it should be discouraged (31%).
3. "Three-quarters of Catholic adults under 30 support legal same-sex marriage, compared with 53% of Catholics ages 30 and older (including just 38% of those 65 and older)."
I'll leave it to you to connect the dots between these findings about where the church on the ground finds itself — and is heading, since younger Catholics are the future of that church — and the tortured, scandalous discussion among the grave men running the church about whether we can welcome. Or accomodate. Or "provide for"  . . . 
"these people."
The graphic is from Lipka's article, and charts the result of a survey Pew did January-March 2014 regarding these matters.
