This is a picture of a study I used to write my paper on a few semesters ago that I used to come up with the basis of my idea for this project. The paper was for a psychology class so it focused more on the psychology of this issue, but we will be focusing more on the sociological stand point. I referenced four studies for this paper and we will be looking at all of them.
I chose this photo from the Westboro Baptist Church’s website because they are an extremely well known anti-gay church (their website is godhatesfags.com). ‘God Hates Fags’ is one of their best know slogans and they use their religion to preach their hatred to homosexuals and all those that support or defend them. They are on the extreme end of the spectrum of attitudes towards homosexuals, but they are definitely worth noting.
