Well, well, this is a positive development. The United States’ Public Religion Research Institute today released “Generations at Odds: The Millennial Generation and the Future of Gay and Lesbian Rights,” a report into what todays teens and 20-somethings in the US think about us.
62% of American youth favor marriage equality, including 49% of those identifying as Republican and 44% of those who think of themselves as Evangelical. In the last category that means the youth are four times more to support equality than senior Evangelicals.
This is what they call a snowball effect, ladies and gentlemen.
(Interestingly more Catholics think the Church’s approach to gays is too extreme than think it is “about right.”)
