83. I'd say they share blame, so saying 'the churches are to blame' sums it up well
The leadership of various churches were active in spreading fear and hate; and those members who were unwilling to think for themselves must bear some blame for that attitude too. Together, leaders and congregations make up a 'church'.

I acknowledge that various churches are blameless, and some worked actively against the proposition; but it seems that the majority of churches, in terms of number of members, were in favour of the proposition.

I'd also note that Islam has an even worse record on homosexuality - this isn't just certain Christian denominations. But they're not a significant grouping in California.
