Millennials Are Pro-Gay

 

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.

    Good news. I like it.

    OK… so what, Tony… if Millennials decide it’s OK to have sex with dogs, we will say, OK? I fail to understand the significance of this.

    To me this is one of those, OK… and your point is?

      Yeah, that’s just what Tony said!
      This is very pertinent information for people to have, whatever their own position on the issues happens to be. If you think these opinions are wrong & dangerous, you’ll probably want to know they’re very widely held among that younger generation. If you agree with those opinions, you’ll also want to know (and will likely draw hope from it).
      I would hope someone could just post some information that they think many of their readers will be interested in without pontificating about the significance of that info. Don’t worry: Tony will no doubt get around to pontificating about these topics (again) in future posts… :)
