Americans split 50-50 on acceptance of homosexuality

by on March 25, 2009  •  In Religion

According to Pew Research Center's Forum on Religion & Public Life, half of Americans and 56 per cent of mainline Protestants believe that homosexuality is a way of life that should be accepted by society. The figure reaches 70 per cent or close to that for Episcopalians and members of the United Church of Christ. The denomination that most closely mirrors the overall population's views is the United Methodist Church. Members of historically black churches are significantly less likely to agree (39 per cent) than mainline Protestants, but much more likely than evangelical Protestants (26 per cent).
