Members of Christian denominations in general are expressing support for gay rights. The Barna Group recently released current survey results and compared those results with ones taken ten years ago. Support among Christians is up significantly.
There is one exception, evangelicals. Among that group, support slipped from only ten per cent ten years ago down to seven percent. What this all portends we cannot be certain.
Surveys comparing ten years ago to today are not tracking the same people. There are new people entering these denominations and deaths.
More importantly, more people are leaving the Church than are entering. It seems plausable that those who leave tend to have more or less common points of view. If, for example, young liberal people are leaving evangelical churches, we would expect the percentage of conservative people to rise as it did.
There can be no doubt, full acceptance of gays by Catholic and Protestant branches is coming. It is coming because a.) there is no valid reason not to do so and b.) churches cannot stand apart from the society around them and remain viable. They must conform.
Accommodation by the Jewish/Christian thread of world religions started from day one. First, Jews needed to stop requiring circumcision to appeal to gentiles. Next, as Christianity emerged from a branch of the Jewish faith, the view that the end times were just in the next few days had to be adjusted.
Adjusting to the new reality that gays are OK will be easier than these earlier accommodations.
