Strong majority of Americans say premarital sex, divorce are 'morally acceptable': Gallup

Wednesday, June 5, 2019 | Tag Cloud Tags: , , ,

(Worthy News) - An increasing majority of Americans view divorce, sex outside of marriage, gay relationships and birth control as morally acceptable while a majority of Americans continue to view abortion as morally wrong, according to new Gallup data.

Gallup released its annual Values and Beliefs poll last week, which showed that Americans are continuing to become increasingly liberal when it comes to their views on a variety of social behaviors.

The poll interviewed over 1,000 Americans from all 50 states in early May 2019 and has a margin of error of four percentage points. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]

  1. Figures don't lie, but liars figures. To get a "Majority" out of 1000 is stretching it! In any case, even if there are a majority that believe those things are acceptable is concerning. WE CANNOT NORMALIZE SIN!!! It steals mercy and grace from the situation and leaves you without a way to seek repentance. Now throwing the birth-control in there IS pushing it. It doesn't go with the rest

  2. The majority have been imposing these same values on the rest of the majority of the people, in US States since the first "No Fault Divorce" law was passed. It matters not if the marriage you entered into did not included the divorce option someday. The legislators have overruled religion and it happened a long time ago when they decided that God no longer played a part in marriage and/or divorce.
