This is interesting research. I too wonder what the point is of asking people what they think about church teachings in mainstream society. I suspect that many Americans mistake their own biases for religious teachings, especially since only about 40% of Americans go to church regularly, presumably receiving the "teachings" (I got this statistic from the internet, but it is based on a study). I also suspect that, while there is no doubt that there is some hateful stuff out there, religion may just be a convenient scapegoat for social biases.
