A popular pollster has distorted its statistics on support for same-sex “marriage” among Catholics, according to Family Research Council.

According to FRC’s report, Quinnipiac University lumped survey responses from practicing and non-practicing Catholics together on the issue of same-sex “marriage”–even though the university was careful to distinguish between the two when it came to other issues.

The result was a set of statistics showing the majority of “Catholics” support the redefinition of marriage. A closer inspection of the numbers, however, shows the majority of practicing Catholics do not support same-sex “marriage.”

In other words, the poll purports to show Catholics have shifted from opposing to supporting same-sex “marriage” when no such shift has actually happened.
