Study: Wine in gay-friendly churches more likely to come from a box

by Jeremy Hooper

   According to a new study from the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, gay-welcoming churches often have a much tougher time obtaining financial support than do those who exclude homosexuals, with mainline Christian churches holding as much as an 8-1 advantage in funding over progressive ones.

Translation: Go to the progressive churches for the worship, the mainline ones for the after-church refreshments and barbecues.
