Study Shows Many Christians Perceive LGBT Acceptance As Personal Attack

▶️ Watch on 3Speak

In a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, a team of researchers from the Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, revealed some interesting findings regarding the frame of mind of many conservative Christians. The research used data gathered from five separate studies conducted over three and a half years, from July 2016 to December 2020. In the study, the team found out that heterosexual white Christians subscribe to Zero-Sum Bias (ZSB) more than any other group. Zero-Sum Bias or Zero-Sum Thinking is a situational perception where an individual thinks that one person's gains translate to a loss for the other person. Clara Wilkins, the study's principal investigator, explained that since most White Christian Americans see Christianity as an integral feature of American culture, this puts them at odds with the LGBTQ+ community that they see as "having increasing social influence." The team was able to identify that church leadership can use their influence over their followers to help facilitate intercultural acceptance.
