Americans Split On Gay Morality

Could the queers spark the next civil war?

Americans interviewed in Gallup’s 2008 Values and Beliefs poll are evenly divided over the morality of homosexual relations, with 48% considering them morally acceptable and 48% saying they are morally wrong.

While similar to last year’s results, current attitudes are more affirming of gays than what Gallup found at the start of the decade when the majority said such relations were morally wrong.

Still, homosexuality emerges as the most divisive of 16 major social and cultural issues measured in the May 8-11, 2008 survey. Only doctor-assisted suicide and abortion come close to it in splitting public opinion.

Good to know we sodomites still take the controversial cake.

    WTF, where can I vote? I AM SICK TIRED OF DOWNRIGHT INSULTING TERM, HOMOSEXUALITY! Gay is NOT morally wrong. We better work on that stupid 48% who think it is morally wrong!

    Homosexuality is not a pejorative term and I have no problem with it.

    It’s nice to see that, slowly but surely, people are coming to their senses about this issue. It shouldn’t even be an issue, really.

    In my whole life I have never been polled at random by Gallup, and I have lived in many places.
    Poll’s run by commercial corporations are not reliable, and are manipulated by wealthy religious groups. Non=profit polls are usually more accurate, such as ones initiated by the Pew Institute. The latest Pew poll has acceptance of us higher on the scale.

    Hmm I wonder how much religion has to do with this.

    gay men put their penis in other mens asses, that is where men shit, that is disgusting.

    @Cooper: as if the act of heterosexual sex is any less disgusting when you frame it in similar terms? Your troll attempt is sad and laughable… and likely to only ever get this single response on this site.
