“Missing Voices: A study of religious voices in Mainstream Media reports about LGBT equality”

The Center on Religion & the Professions, in partnership with the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), released a three-year content analysis of broadcast and print news stories on April 12, 2012 that shows a disproportionate number of anti-LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) issues. The study examined 316 stories citing more than 1,350 sources with a religious identification, a vast majority of which had formal church policies opposing LGBT equality.

CORP Executive Director Debra Mason served as project director for the study, and was assisted by Cathy Ellen Rosenholtz, a Ph.D. candidate in Communications at MU and master’s graduate of the Divinity School at Harvard University.
