USA: New Poll Says 59% of Americans Think Gay Unions Are Morally Acceptable

Written by scott on May 25th, 2013

titleGallup just released a new poll on America’s views on gay relationships and homosexuality. On Top Magazine reports:

When New Jersey-based pollster Gallup asked, “Do you personally believe gay or lesbian relations are morally acceptable or morally wrong?” a majority (59%) of respondents said “morally acceptable.” Thirty-eight percent said such unions were “morally wrong.”

…Gallup’s annual Values and Beliefs survey, conducted May 2-7, also found more Americans believe that being gay is not a choice. “Currently, 47% of Americans view being gay or lesbian as a sexual orientation individuals are born with, while 33% instead believe it is due to external factors such as upbringing or environment.

I’d like to see that “choice” number up above 50%, but it’s encouraging that only 33% still think it’s as choice.
