Survey says U.S. Catholics liberal on same-sex marriage

A July 21, report on religion and same-sex marriage in California has yielded some interesting results. Based on the June polling of almost 3,500 adults (with oversamples of Latinos), it was learned 57 percent of Latino Catholics would vote for the legalization of same-sex marriage.

Contrasting this demographic are Latino Protestants, only 22 percent of which would vote for the legalization of same-sex marriages. According to the Pew Forum, Catholics constitute about 31 percent of California's population.

New York Theological Seminary is an institution dedicated to welcoming diversity. NYTS helps to prepare men and women from many backgrounds for ordination as part of its mission.
