The Pew Research Center does their homework. Their due diligence in gathering, compiling, and presenting the beliefs, the pulse of the people in America. They know what they are doing in this regard.
Be sure to read the latest from them following my brief comments after discovering and reading this latest research.
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!
Isaiah 5:20 — English Standard Version
if my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.
2 Chronicles 7:14 — English Standard Version
Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.
Romans 12:2 — English Standard Version
A nation cannot contain six out of ten citizens who profess that same-sex “marriage” os good for their society while also having six out of ten citizens professing to be followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, children of God.
The math doesn’t add up. If in any math class at any level and this answer was tuned in on a test paper there would be a red X next to where this was the answer given;
Can 6 out of 10 people in a nation make the claim that same-sex “marriage” is good for society while also having 6 out of 10 of its citizens claim to be Christians?
If answering “yes” you fail.
Do you believe God adapts and adopts the sin of the people? That the times, we the people, dictate to God what is right or wrong? That God is not immutable? That we the people know better than God? That we can remove or alter, add to or remove what is in the Bible and remain His children in good stead? Truly say we’re disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ?
Does anyone spend time in the Holy Bible? Does anyone pray? Does anyone rightly divide the Word of God? Does anyone continue to fear God, which is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge? Does anyone truly understand what being a true disciple of the Lord Jesus Christ, a true child of God is, looks like, sounds like, and lives?
When six out of ten profess homosexuality and sexual immorality sound and good for society while that almost exact same number profess to be God’s people?
Are we kidding!?
And we expect good things to happen in our nation? Really? Are you kidding!?
Wake up and smell the evil, the perversion of the truth, the decline in the church, and the corruption of the Word, and what it means to be a Christian today!

About six-in-ten Americans say legalization of same-sex marriage is good for society
November 15, 2022
Reprinted from Pew Research Center
With the Senate set to take up a bill that would protect same-sex marriage at the federal level, a clear majority of Americans continue to say that the legalization of same-sex marriage is good for society.
About six-in-ten adults (61%) express a positive view of the impact of same-sex marriage being legal, including 36% who say it is very good for society. Roughly four-in-ten have a negative view (37%), with 19% saying it is very bad.
The new survey – which was fielded in October, before the midterm elections – comes as some have questioned whether same-sex marriage will remain legal nationally following the Supreme Court’s June decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, turning abortion laws back to the states.
Views of the impact of same-sex marriage on society are largely unchanged since 2019. However, there has been a dramatic increase in public support for same-sex marriage over the past two decades. As recently as 2004, nearly twice as many Americans opposed than favored allowing gay and lesbian people to marry legally; by 2019, public opinion had reversed, with 61% in favor and 31% opposed.Opinions about same-sex marriage’s impact on society vary widely by age, education and – most starkly – by party and religion.
Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents have a largely positive view of the effect of legalizing same-sex marriage: Eight-in-ten say it has been good for society, while 19% say it has been bad. Republicans and Republican leaners are more divided: 43% view the legalization of same-sex marriage positively, 55% negatively.
There are wide ideological differences within both parties. Two-thirds of conservative Republicans (66%) view the impact of same-sex marriage negatively. Nearly the same share of moderate and liberal Republicans (62%) take a positive view.
Among Democrats, liberals overwhelmingly view the legalization of same-sex marriage positively (93%), while a smaller majority of conservative and moderate Democrats (69%) say the same.
Majorities of Asian (70%), White (61%), Hispanic (60%) and Black adults (57%) say the legalization of same-sex marriage is good for society. For the most part, these opinions are little changed since 2019, though the share of Black adults who take a positive view has increased from 50% to 57% over this period.
There are also large differences by age. Three-quarters of Americans ages 18 to 29 say same-sex marriage being legal is good for society, with about half (52%) saying it is very good. That compares with 63% of those 30 to 49 and about half (52%) of those 50 and older.
Opinions about the effect of same-sex marriage vary widely among religious groups. While 71% of White evangelical Protestants say the legalization of marriage between same-sex couples is bad for society, 62% of White non-evangelical Protestants say it is good. So too do about two-thirds of Catholics (66%) and a much larger majority of religiously unaffiliated adults (82%). In contrast, Black Protestants are closely divided on same-sex marriage: 49% say it is good, while 46% say it is bad.
Among Americans with a bachelor’s degree or more education, seven-in-ten say the legalization of same-sex marriage is good for society, compared with 63% of those with some college experience but no bachelor’s degree. About half of those with a high school diploma or less (51%) say same-sex marriage is very good (26%) or somewhat good (25%) for society, with 45% saying it is somewhat bad (20%) or very bad (24%).
While partisan divides are evident regardless of Americans’ age and educational background, these differences are more modest among younger adults than older people. Younger Republicans express much more positive views of same-sex marriage than older Republicans, but age differences among Democrats are less pronounced.
Among those ages 18 to 29, 83% of Democrats and 64% of Republicans say the legalization of same-sex marriage is good for society. Among adults 50 and older, by comparison, more than twice as many Democrats (78%) as Republicans (34%) say it is good for society.
Educational differences are somewhat wider among Democrats than among Republicans. While about nine-in-ten Democrats with a postgraduate degree (92%) or bachelor’s degree (89%) say same-sex marriage is good for society, about two-thirds of those with a high school education or less (66%) say the same. There is little variation among Republicans by educational attainment.
