Gallup Poll: Majority Now Say Gay Sex, Unwed Births, Are Morally OK

A Gallup poll shows that a majority of Americans now believe that sexual relations between two men or two women, and unmarried women having a baby, are morally acceptable.

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.

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.

Give it a break. The results may be a little exaggerated: so what? The world is changing and we are becoming the minority, rapidly. Denial isn't going to stop the trend.

Out of wedlock births are not good (although much preferable to abortion), but they don’t happen spontaneously. They are the result of immoral behavior, not an immoral behavior in and of themselves.

As they say, there are no illegitimate children. Only illegitimate parents.

We can only hope that Americans wake up and realize that children do not succeed in single family homes. Certainly America as a nation is not succeeding with entire generations of children being born out of wedlock. As goes the American Family - so goes America.

And that being true, we need to remember that nursery rhyme: “First comes love, then comes marriage, then comes baby in a baby carriage”.

Anything else is morally and socially unacceptable.

So, does anyone wonder why we have such bad tornados?

Nope, the location of the jet stream and the flow of warm moist air from the gulf are plenty explanation enough.

the lefts holy grail, they wanted to destroy America, communist rules 1963,
They knew first hand tat once morals ,went away and the family was redefined then America would go to crap and boyit did.

Why did the left get their way?
Easy the cowards on our side will not mention social issues, talk radio, Hannity and the other cowards want o talk about debt and spending, then we get those who pretend they’re conservatives and want the stupid party to talk just debt and spending and taxes instead of mentioning the lefts holy grail.

How many on here actually can put their homosexuals pals to the side and not go along with their agenda, how many mention what the left is about and how and what the family really is and not what the left want it to be.

Come Thanksgiving how many times do we see some freepers saying they will not mention social issues or politics to their liberal family.

Right there is the problem, once people stayed silent for being cowardly ten the left advances their agenda

Since all these decades have gone by we can still see how the communists went to work to destroy America and for those who say do not mention social issues, then I hope you’re proud of doing nothing and helping the communists destroy America, well done you ignorant idiots, you either think about your own pockets and that;s it or you have a queer pal and think they’re nice so you have no problem

just asked the same thing mate.

Did they poll GA, MS, AL, north FL, SC, ND, ID, or was it the usual New England and west coast and big cities.

Massive difference from the south to the foreign north east which should be another country to the rural areas and parts of the outer cities to the inner cities and yes I’ll say it, many parts of black America when it comes to various issues

I won’t shut up because I have a homosexual pal or know of one, I don’t really because they irate me with their immature victim card attitude but I wouldn’t change my views to suit them , nor will my kids and I’d like to know why are parents , not mentioning every day to their kids the dangers of the left, homosexuals and what marriage is

That’s what I’ve always figured... high polling in all those deviant, Obama-voting blue states. Another reason I’ve found myself becoming more and more open to secession. I don’t even want to share the same Union as these loathesome fag-marriage state pukes.

I really suspect that if you asked most people,

"Do you think that acceptance of homosexual-type sex acts, is conducive to the over-all flourishing of children, adults, families, and societies?

You'd get

No.

No.

No.

Hmm, probably not.

That's the kind of question "Natural Law" would suggest, and to the extent that people have any experience of human nature, they'll tend to answer correctly.

I mean, even aside from Scripture (and many people are not Jews or Christians), Natural Law is a valid kind of moral reasoning, because the Book of Scripture and the Book of Nature have the same Author.

It's imprinted into our very structure, becoming apparent through honest observation and reason.

But do people not know what "Moral" means? Do they think it is just a personal opinion, and therefore, not to be "imposed" even by expressing a considered judgment?

Or do they suppose there is nothing we could call "Human Nature," that we are all just bundles of impulses, with no way to understand each other through what is common to our design?

Do people observe? (I mean observe "reality," not "Reality TV".) And do people reason? A process that requires steadily applied mental activity, persisting over a timespan of two, three minutes! Or more!

I think I see some of the underlying problems.

same here, infact it happened tomorrow I’d cheer and help them to pack as they do not belong here with their foreign communist views.

The north east is another country and should leave us alone, they’re pro turd poking, pro illegal, anti family, anti tradition, anti Christian and why is it that some of those who move down here pretend they’re Christian and ten push their communist views

Yes, truly sad, if true.

The entertainment industry has saturated the culture with this garbage, and too many people have taken it all in.

“I’m guessing you think the answer is yes; having sex outside of marriage is morally acceptable.

No, I was not clear.

I don’t think sex outside of marriage is morally acceptable.

I don’t think the baby is the immoral part, though. So I’d have been inclined to say “No, I don’t think it’s immoral to deliver a baby if you are unmarried.”
