Skip to comments.Gallup Poll: Majority Now Say Gay Sex, Unwed Births, Are Morally OK
Posted on 05/21/2013 11:56:46 AM PDT by NYer
In the new survey, 59 percent of American adults answered that gay or lesbian relations are morally acceptable, a 19 percentage point increase since 2001 when only 40 percent said it was morally acceptable.
Sixty percent of respondents said that having a baby outside of marriage was morally acceptable, a 15 percentage point increase since 2002 when only 45 percent said it was morally acceptable.
Of the 20 issues which Gallup asked about their moral acceptability, same-sex sexual relations and unwed pregnancies saw the greatest increases. They were also the only issues which changed from a minority to a majority of the country finding them morally acceptable over the past decade.
The other large increases in moral acceptability were: sex between an unmarried man and woman went from 53 to 63 percent, divorce went from 59 to 63 percent, and medical research using stem cells from human embryos went from 52 to 60 percent.
The only large decline in moral acceptability was for medical testing on animals, which went from 65 to 56 percent.
Galluping toward Gomorrah.
...and hasn’t the decline in morals made everyone feel better/the world a better place? (extreme sarcasm)
Building Satan’s kingdom on earth,

and replacing it with the State.
I have known for some time now that the American people are all crazy out there.
Tell me the size and type of the sample group. Tell me the specific questions asked and how they were asked. Show me other polling and their findings and then we will have an idea of the overall opinion of Americans.
Well, somebody’s gotta say it...
They are not morally okay.
And that part about medical testing of animals is very revealing of the winds of our twisted culture.
It looks like our public indoctrination centers did their jobs well. The knuckleheads now living in our country are morally corrupt. Sickos.
moral relativism == incrementalism == everything is good
only thing that will remain punishable is objecting to evil that is now called “good”
Imagine the doomed children raised by these “Americans”......sad.
Sex with children by 2020 will be okay. Hot rails to Hell.

What I found interesting was the doubling of people who said polygamy was morally acceptable from 7% to 14%. I wonder if it will double again over the next decade.
It’s a full sprint.
This is a poll of adults. Imagine how messed up the brainwashed kiddies are.
This is what happens when parents trust the government (schools) and Hollywood to raise their children for them.
And over 99% of the population of Sodom thought homosexual sex was fine. So what? God is a majority of One.
In all my 50 odd years I have never been polled nor know anyone that has. Who are they calling?
