Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The Relationship of Spirituality, Religiosity and Attitudes toward Lesbians and Gay Men among Students at a Faith-Based Institution
by Cormier CastaƱeda, Megan C., Psy.D., George Fox University, 2019, 57; 27785863
Abstract (Summary)

Research indicates heterosexual students at faith-based universities often hold negative

attitudes toward gay men and lesbian women. The factors that can influence these attitudes are

complex. This study examines the relationship between attitudes toward gay men and lesbian

women, religiosity and spirituality in students who are enrolled in a faith-based institution. A

correlation was run to examine the relationship between these variables along with further

statistical analyses to gather more information. There is a small positive relationship between

higher levels of spirituality and positive attitudes toward gay men and lesbians. There is a

medium positive relationship between high levels of religiosity and positive attitudes toward gay

men and lesbians. On average, females had more positive attitudes toward both gay men and

lesbian women. However, religiosity and spirituality are very low predictors of attitudes toward

lesbians and gay men.
