Are Christians Obsessed with Gays and Abortion?



Text  



When I speak at college campuses, I constantly hear the argument that if American evangelicals would just stop “obsessing” over “gays and abortion” and concentrate on serving the poor, then they’d be much more accepted. I’ve always thought the critique was disingenuous — just a manipulative way to convince Christians to shut up and accept the sexual revolution — so I thought I’d put it to a bit of a test. Where do evangelicals send their charitable dollars?  

The numbers may surprise you.  

And as you read, please note that this analysis doesn’t even include leading Mormon and Catholic charities, which would skew the ratios even more dramatically.
