Poll: 'I don't have a problem with it, but that guy over there would'

by Jeremy Hooper

In a newly released study conducted by Harris Interactive/ Witeck-Combs, 72% of U.S. adults say they would not change their feelings toward a favorite male professional athlete if said athlete revealed himself to be gay. However, when asked how "other sports fans" would react to such a disclosure, 72% also thought that others would have a less favorable opinion than themselves.

Though considering that the poll didn't specify how many "other sports fan" one must take into consideration and that virtually everyone knows the name "Jerry Falwell"...

...who's really surprised by that last figure? Not us.

For more on the poll results, check out the full findings (pdf) below. We personally didn't find fault with it; however, we're confident that around 72% of the "pro-family" crowd will find it to be little more than gay propaganda.
