Official Church teaching describes homosexuality as ‘intrinsically disordered’ and something that ‘can in no case be approved of.’
WASHINGTON, D.C., November 19, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — A report released by the Pew Research Center (PRC) shows that a majority of Catholics surveyed in Western Europe, the Americas, and across the world support either homosexual “marriage” or homosexuality as such — contrary to the official teaching of the Catholic Church.
The comprehensive report, released earlier this month, focuses on Catholics’ view on homosexuality. Compiling the results of studies conducted over the past few years, the figures demonstrate a wide-scale rejection of Catholic teaching on same-sex “marriage” and homosexuality, which the Church describes as “intrinsically disordered” and something that “can in no case be approved of.”
Views regarding same-sex ‘marriage’
The report mentions a 2019 survey, which highlighted that 61 percent of U.S. Catholics were in favor of marriage between two persons of the same sex. Thirty-one percent of Catholics were against the idea.
However, support for same-sex “marriage” among Catholics in the United States is somewhat dwarfed by the figures found in many Western European countries.
The Netherlands topped the table, with 92 percent of Catholics supporting same-sex “marriage,” followed by Belgium and the U.K. with 83 percent and 78 percent, respectively.
The European figures were based on a 2017 report, which also showed that among Christians regularly going to church, 51 percent favored abortion in the Netherlands, while in Belgium and the U.K. that number was 74 percent and 65 percent, respectively.

Not a single one of my bibles contains any support for same sex ‘marriage’.
Vast majority of Catholics in the west don’t believe in the real presence. They are not catechized. Catholicism is not a democracy
It does not change according to mob rule.
Maybe, but it does fit with what I’ve had Catholics tell me.
It’s usually something along the lines of *I know what the Catholic church teaches about ___________, but........*.
I was baptized as a Catholic. Fortunately, I was raised as a Lutheran.
Exactly. Same pollsters that say everyone hates Trump? 🙄 I’m Catholic and no one had ever polled me.
well for pure public health reasons, I support them settling down with one person, and if they want to pretend they are married *shrug* big deal, no skin off my back.
And the Pope is an atheist, so what’s the point?
I do not accept poll analysis since Nov. 3rd. They are all liars.
This poll was not taken by interviewing Catholics leaving Mass on Sunday!!!!!!!
How was the question worded on the survey? Excuse me if I don’t take the lying words of a Marxist propagandist that “supported” is an accurate analysis of the survey.
I would be more inclined to believe that a majority of western Catholics do “accept” that same sex marriage is a legal reality whether they like it or not.
I suspect a look at the survey would lean more towards my suspicions than it does towards their “analysis.”
Most of the people surveyed would not be recognized as Catholics by the Church prior to 1960.
These Push polls are as accurate as the rest of the polls. People need to quit giving this Soros propaganda legitimacy.
With Francis the F@gg0t, Joe Biden, Nanzi Pelosi, and other cafeteria catholics (small c is intentional) what do you expect?
Were raised in the LCMS? The conservative branch?
Sorry. Were you raised in the LCMS? The conservative branch?
“shrug* big deal, no skin off my back.”
Well it is skin off the back of every Christian and traditionalist, since the legal recognition means that Christian small business owners cannot refuse to allow a couple Sodomites to sleep together in their B&B.
