In the December 7 issue of the New York Times, Caitlin Flanagan writes:
"Christian teaching on marriage is not the only reason so many blacks supported Proposition 8. Although it has come as a shocking realization to many in this community, a host of sociological studies confirm that many blacks feel a significant aversion to homosexuality itself, finding it morally and sexually repugnant."
How do these studies rule out the influence of Christian teaching? Because they're "sociological"?
