What reputation hath the 'traditional marriage' crowd wrought?

by Jeremy Hooper

As a followup to Jim Daly's CNN blog or Maggie Gallagher's syndicated column suggesting that faith-based condemnation plays no role in LGBT suicides:

Two out of three Americans believe gay people commit suicide at least partly because of messages coming out of churches and other places of worship, a survey released Thursday found.

More than four out of 10 Americans say the message coming out of churches about gay people is negative, and about the same number say those messages contribute "a lot" to negative perceptions of gay and lesbian people.

Let "the people" vote. Isn't that what these public-opinion-happy "pro-family" types are always saying?
