New Global Poll: Gays More Acceptable Than Gambling, Adultery

Written by scott on April 21st, 2014

PewGlobal1Pew research just released the results of a 40 country survey on “morality”.

Joe.My.God reports:

Pew Research has issued a report on a “global morality survey” they conducted last spring. As you can see above, homosexuality averaged out to be somewhat more acceptable than adultery and gambling in the 40 countries surveyed. In the USA: An overwhelming majority of Americans said extramarital affairs were morally unacceptable. But fewer Americans said that abortion was unacceptable (49%), with 17% saying abortion was morally acceptable and 23% saying it was not a moral issue. Meanwhile, less than four-in-ten Americans are strongly opposed to homosexuality (37% unacceptable), premarital sex (30%), gambling (24%), divorce (22%) and alcohol usage (16%). For these issues, a majority of Americans said that they were either morally acceptable or not a moral issue. And when it came to the issue of contraceptive use, only 7% said this was unacceptable.

While we seem to be nearing the end of the marriage equality fight in the US, globally we still have a long way to go, folks.
