LGBT folk in Australia and Religion

This article is about a census of gays and lesbians in Australia and their attitude towards religion.  A much higher number than in the general population have no religious affilliation, and a higher number than average belong to an alternative or Eastern religion such as Paganism or Buddhism.  Given the attitude of many Christians toward LGBT folk this is not at all a surprise.  Rather that so many are religious testifies to the hunger of most humans for spiritual meaning in their lives, and to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of rejection.
