It didn't take long for conservative pundit Rush Limbaugh to weigh in on Pew's recent study showing that the number of identifying Christian's has steadily declined over the last decade, with the radio host blaming, you guessed it, gay marriage.
Limbaugh shared his reasoning on his radio show on Tuesday, specifically citing churches that perform same-sex weddings and ordained gay clergy are the reason for the diaspora:
"They have left their churches because of social issues and the evolution of their churches to social areas they didn't want to go and don't feel comfortable being in. If you look at the evangelical churches, they haven’t lost anything. Their membership is holding pretty steady. Where the message has remained, where the mission has remained the same, where the members of the church don’t think any corruption is taking place. They're still hanging in there.
