This Facebook post, attributed to the The Atheist Advocate, says:

We polled over 10,000 conservative Christians

"What would you do, if you discovered that your child was a homo sapien?"

85% said they would disown them and force them to leave their home!

Can anyone confirm the existence of this poll?

There was no poll. This was intended to be satirical, but appears to have missed its mark in many places.

It was originally posted on a Facebook page for the The Atheist Advocate.

In response to complaints, the poster writes:

The original meme is a caricature, based on the fact that many conservative Christians think about homosexuals in a negative way. The statistics are exaggerated, much in the same way a caricature of a portrait is an exaggeration of one's facial features.
