Chapter Summary

This chapter measures the relationships among demographic, religious, and social contact variables in the prediction of homonegativity. In particular, it was hypothesized that religious fundamentalism would predict homonegativity among religious college students, as measured by both homonegative attitudes and desire for social distance. Exploratory analyses were also conducted to measure the relationships between other religious variables (denomination, intrinsic, extrinsic social, extrinsic personal, quest, and Christian orthodoxy) and homonegativity. In particular, the researchers aimed to study these relationships among religious variables and homonegativity in a more ethnically and religiously diverse sample than has been conducted previously. Further, the researchers aimed to study the relationships between religious variables and homonegativity using both attitude and social distance measures. This research was particularly timely given the need for more current studies which assess levels of homonegativity in an era of changing social attitudes and practices.

Keywords: Christian orthodoxy; fundamentalism; homonegativity; religious college students; social attitudes
