California, Illinois, New York: three states where gay marriage is or will become legal within the next six months—and three states where less than half of people see gay sex as “morally acceptable,” estimates suggest. Of all the changes in attitudes toward LGBTQ issues over the last decade, perhaps this is the most remarkable: Americans seem to have concluded that what happens in other people’s bedrooms is none of their business.

There are lots of interesting findings in a new study released by the Public Religion Research Institute last week. Millennials are nearly twice as likely as their grandparents to support gay marriage, including the half of the young people who identify as Republicans. Many religious Americans have changed their minds on the issue since 2003, and a majority of Jews, white mainline Protestants, and white and Hispanic Catholics now support the issue. And since 1999, the proportion of Americans who support gay adoption has increased by 20 percentage points. Today, 58 percent support it, as opposed to 38 percent.

But the most surprising statistics are buried toward the end of the study. A majority of those surveyed said that sex between adults of the same gender was morally wrong. It was a slim majority—only 51 percent—and roughly 43 percent said that gay sex is fine. There were regional differences, too. About half of Californians and Floridians had no objection to gay sex, while only a third of Texans were okay with it.

Well, at least they are not claiming that it is unnatural to engage in homosexual sex. Morality is after all a human artifact derived to a large extent from religious dogma.  In time people will come to understand the natural expression  of homosexuality and apply to it more enlightened moral standards  that are not in conflict with the natural expression of human sexuality.

Sadly, many heterosexual still have a false sense of sexual entitlement  that makes them believe their sexuality is right and that homosexuality is wrong.   But, homosexuality is as right as heterosexuality; in the same way being right handed is as right as being left handed. No mankind is not in danger of ending because of homosexuality. The majority of homosexual can engage in sex with the opposite sex and reproduce. So can the majority of men engage in sex with other men, as evidenced by the behavior of heterosexual men in prison.  In fact, close to 60% to 80% of homosexual have off springs and are married to members of the opposite sex. The percentage of homosexual that have embraced their authentic sexual orientation and living as gay  is between 20% to 40% of homosexuals.
