U.S. Republicans, white Christians rank even behind Muslims in support for gay marriage

Post by *THE Ben Reilly* on Tue May 01, 2018 8:13 pm

Opposition to same-sex marriage has decreased across a broad swath of religious groups in the United States, with white evangelical Christians one of the few movements for which a majority remains in opposition. Three years on from the Supreme Court ruling that same-sex couples should be allowed to marry, the findings from the Public Religion Research Institute’s 2017 American Values Atlas, published Tuesday, showed growing support for LGBT rights, including a majority of U.S. Muslims backing same-sex marriage for the first time.

Muslims, by a margin of 51 percent to 34 percent, favor same-sex marriage, compared to just four years ago when a majority, 51 percent, were opposed. There were similar results for black Protestants, with 54 percent opposing gay marriage in PRRI’s 2014 American Values Atlas, compared with 43 percent in the latest findings.

Indeed, opposition to same-sex marriage is now limited almost entirely to white conservative Christians. Fifty-eight percent of white evangelical Christians and 53 percent of Mormons—an overwhelming majority of whom are white—are opposed to allowing gay couples to marry. The group with the most opposition, though, is Jehovah’s Witnesses, a group which is 36 percent white, 32 percent Hispanic and 27 percent black in the U.S. Just 13 percent support the law.

As a whole, 63 percent of Americans now back allowing same-sex couples to marry, up from 52 percent four years ago. All major racial groups now have a majority in favor. Republicans, though, remain opposed, 51 percent to 42 percent.

So....in a nutshell, Muslims are now becoming more relaxed about gay marriage whilst white Christians are still against it (while furiously using gay porn for masturbating purposes)?

This is a bit old, but a survey said that the Deep South, where there are more Republican white Evangelical Christians, watch the most gay porn: https://www.buzzfeed.com/ryanhatesthis/according-to-pornhub-the-south-watches-more-gay-porn-than-an?utm_term=.borbjq22Rz#.qpmd6VNNem

From your link:

“We pulled terms and traffic to gay searches. We couldn't break down "lesbian" because we don't track our users on a micro-granular level (i.e., gender, sexual orientation, etc.). So for example, lesbian searches can account for, like, 40% of a city's searches, but 80% of those searchers may likely be men.

So to answer, it's a rundown of gay porn from male users.”

It fits.  One of the core themes of American white racism is the fear that blacks are after white women--that's half-kinky right there.  As Dylan Roof wrote in his manifesto:

The Washington Post wrote:“Negroes have lower Iqs, lower impulse control, and higher testosterone levels in generals,” the [Roof] manifesto declares. “These three things alone are a recipe for violent behavior.”

Then, he openly declared as he slaughtered the parishioners of Emanuel AME Church:

Dylan Roof wrote:“You rape our women, and you’re taking over our country. And you have to go.”

These are definite feelings of emasculation, brought on by the southern white male fear of sexual superiority of the black male.  Could heterosexual male inferiority cause southern men to explore the other side?
