A new survey just released by the Pew Research Center has found that support for gay marriage in the United States is at an all-time record high. According to the survey, 62 percent of all Americans are now in favor of allowing gays and lesbians to get married, and only 32 percent are opposed. These numbers have almost flipped completely upside down from where they were a decade ago. In 2007, 54 percent of all Americans were against gay marriage and only 37 percent were in favor of it. To say that our culture has been transformed over the past ten years would be a major understatement.

One of the biggest shifts that we have seen has been among evangelicals. This brand new survey discovered that support for gay marriage among white evangelicals has more than doubled since 2007…

    Legal marriage is nothing more than a contract with a tax. That is why it should be legal.

    If your church chooses to perform or condone gay marriage, then that’s fine.

    Just don’t confuse legal marriage with a religious marriage because they are in fact different.

      I agree, but hope that those whose religious beliefs are against it will be respected, e.g. bakers, photographers, caterers, etc. And when polygamous marriage is then legal, as well as, incest, everyone will accept those also, long as they are consenting adults, of course.

    As a child I had a Aunt Erna and a Aunt Edna. They were spinster school teachers that lived together. At church they sat in the same pew, sang,and functions they would be there. Always there, nothing wrong with them I could see. I had a cousin who wasn’t talked about but she went to Africa to a lepord colony. Pics always with another lady. When one of the aunts passed the other went a week later. I found that they had been together for 55 yrs. They loved each other, what they do in the bedroom is their business as long as I don’t have to hear about it. Gays have been around for thousands of years, and there are some people that don’t need to have children. We can condemn them as Gods law say but their there. If a civil ceremony is done then fine. But not in a house of God!

    Glad to live in a land where big power does not hassle people for their beliefs. If the central planners would lay off Christians I would be happier. Get the State out of marriage.

    I can’t speak for others, but to me the Bible is pretty explicit. Homosexuality is an abomination. You are to shun the very concept. However, as the progressive LBGTXYZ crown knows, if you shout loud enough, long enough and penalize anyone who disagrees, then your “fact” becomes accepted as “truth”. UNLESS, you have the opposing view with enough backbone to fight back. This country has just seen the end of the most divisive president in history. Laws or edicts were passed that criminalize derogatory remarks about Muslims and gays. AG Loretta Lynch stated she would actively prosecute anyone who indulged in this “hate speech”. The tactic of instilling fear and constant broadcasting of the agenda, it’s brainwashing and it works.

    I’m not exactly against Gays joining in a civil ceremony but I am against them doing so in a religious building and by a minister whos doctrine is clearly against same-sex relationships and intercourse.
    I am against the Gender benders that go out their way to show how queer they are with stupid displays of blokes dressed in arse showing chaps etc.
    Funny thing is this, I worked for a bloke and became a good friend of his. It was after working for him for 4 years I found out by chance he was gay and had been in a 10 year relationship with a publican’s son where we both drank.
    I don’t mind that kinda gay person, they seem to just want to be and not show how queer they are at every chance. I’d not mind them joining in a civil ceremony and me, my wife and son would probably get an invite lol

    In my personal research (extemely limited to just observing), I am finding more and more people, Christian and otherwise, who are accepting behavior that they would have shunned 20 years ago. Christians are appearing to fear Man more than God, always a bad move. IMO.

    Coming from Pew and posted by Reuters, I am not believing this. While younger people appear to be more tolerant, it is because they have been indoctrinated for years now.

    History tells us that behavior never lasted for any length of time…..except in secrecy. Hopefully, the SCOTUS will rule again in favor of Christians.

      Agree Izzy. Sounds like the exact opposite for the people I have talked to.
