A new survey from the Public Religion Research Institute has some positive findings for those us who hope for marriage equality, gay ordination, and the like:
- There is at least a 20-point generation gap between Millennials (age 18 to 29) and seniors (age 65 and older) on every public policy measure in the survey concerning rights for gay and lesbian people.
- The generation gap in support for same-sex marriage is striking and persists even among conservative political and religious groups.
- Public support for allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry has increased significantly over the last 5 years.
- Despite the conventional wisdom that religious groups generally oppose rights for gay and lesbian Americans, there are major religious groups on both sides of the debate over same-sex marriage.
The report goes on from there. Read the whole thing here.
