It has long been reported in social research that individuals demonstrating a higher degree of religiosity lend to exhibit more negative attitudes towards homosexuality. However, there is little research in the literature that differentiates between altitudes towards gays and lesbians as individuals and the intimate acts they perform with the same sex. This research proposes to first of all confirm whether there is a relationship between religious fundamentalism and attitudes towards homosexuality, and further to decipher the potential differences in altitudes towards gays and lesbians as individuals and same-sex acts. A self-report survey was completed by 94 students at a small Midwestern college in obtaining data for this research.
