Baby, the African American community is disapproving of gays but a LOT of men of that ethnicity love gay sex and I would say many of them are at least bi. Do not forget that the African American community ALSO has the highest rates of HIV (Hispanics are 2nd place).
I really am not seeing your point. Also, you do know HIV has nothing to do with this Heterosexuals contact the disease too, so that percentage means nothing. Lastly, if you are making the "love gay sex" generalization, throw in Whites, Hispanics, Asians, etc. Really, there was no point in this.
And "indoctrinated in [Hispanic] culture"-- elaborate on this please~
Hispanics are more disapproving due to the large presence of catholic faith, as well as the higher inclination to have large families (and 2 gays cannot have a child obviously)
Actually, the Hispanic faith has less to do on it. The New York times did a report on April 26, 2007 that shows half of hispanics practice a "distinctive form" of Catholic Teaching. Here is the full text
The study, conducted by the Pew Hispanic Center and the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life, found that half of Hispanic Catholics practice a ''distinctive form'' of charismatic Catholicism that includes speaking in tongues, miraculous healings and prophesying -- practices more often associated with Pentecostalism. Among Catholics who are not Hispanic, only 12 percent are involved in these practices.
The study also found that two-thirds of Hispanics choose to worship in ''ethnic congregations'' that have Hispanic clergymen and Spanish-language services, and where a majority of congregants are Hispanic. These congregations are cropping up throughout the country, even in areas where Hispanics are sparse.
Also there was another example published in the Wisconsin state journal that says,
Hispanics are known to be more family oriented than religious ... according to the survey, about 56 percent of first generation Hispanics were accepting to homosexuality. Among second generation Hispanics, this rose to 68 percent.
So when you compare African Americans to Hispanic Americans, Hispanics are more accepting on Homosexual behavior.
Here is another one that you can see.
They have the first generation a little less than the journal, and add a third generation Hispanic to the mix as well.
Even your source states that the percentage of African Americans who oppose gay marriage went down from 67% in 2008 to 49% in 2012.
You aren't looking at the entire picture. That poll was from PEW conducted in April. The 65% was from the Public Policy Polling conducted in May of that same year. Those are a month apart. With the Public policy polling being the last one. So looking at all three polls mentioned in the article African Americans have gone 67-49-65 in attitudes against homosexual marriage. However, I would say it went 67-65 because Amendment I was upheld with a strong African American presence against it.
Also, the problem I have with the PEW poll is that is only did 3500 African Americans in the West. However, you could say the same about my poll because it only took the Demographic of North Carolina.
There is an article in the Journal of African American History that says
Black churches still reign heavily against homosexual behavior. However, tolerance has been growing. Our study shows that approximately 42% of African Americans support Homosexual behavior.
It then goes on to say the study allows for a 3-5 percent error. That would be somewhere between 53 and 63 percent still against it. I think that would actually be more reasonable.
Lastly, the reason there are no links for some sources is that I am getting them off PDFs from Proquest and Lexusnexus.
