(Worthy News) - A record percentage of Americans believe that gay and lesbian relations, pornography and polygamy are morally acceptable, although a plurality believe that abortion is morally wrong, according to a new Gallup poll.
Gallup on Monday released its annual Values and Beliefs survey, which began in 2001 and surveys Americans’ attitudes on a host of issues. This year’s poll examined beliefs on 21 issues.
A record 67 percent of American adults believe that gay and lesbian relations are morally acceptable, an increase from last year’s high of 63 percent.
The survey set records on several other issues. Among them:
76 percent say divorce is morally acceptable. Previous high: 73 percent (2017).
43 percent say pornography is morally acceptable. Previous high: 36 percent (2017).
19 percent say polygamy is morally acceptable. Previous high: 17 percent (2017). [ Source: Christian Headlines (Read More...) ]
