New Survey: Christians who support gay marriage ok with porn, divorce, premarital sex, abortion

Christians who support gay marriage are more likely to approve of commitment-free sex, pornography, adultery, polyamory and abortion than other churchgoers, says one researcher who calls the differences a “massive divide.”

“At a glance, there is a pretty obvious fissure between Christians who do and do not oppose same-sex marriage,” University of Texas sociology professor Mark Regnerus wrote in an Aug. 11 essay at the Public Discourse.

“More than seven times as many of the latter think pornography is okay. Three times as many back cohabiting as a good idea, six times as many are okay with no-strings-attached sex, five times as many think adultery could be permissible, thirteen times as many have no issue with polyamorous relationships, and six times as many support abortion rights.”

At the same time, he suggested that Christian approval of homosexual relationships “has ramifications for how heterosexual relationships are understood, too.”

The American Conservative titled their article “Sex, Christianity & the Slippery Slope” stating that “it seems pretty clear that if you or your congregation has accepted SSM as normative, you have jettisoned basic Christian teaching about the meaning of sex and sexuality. And within one or two generations, I believe, your descendants will jettison Christianity. The Christian future will be orthodox on sexual matters, or it won’t be at all.”

The taboo doesn’t seem so taboo for many in the church. Even polyamory, while discounted as a fringe phenomenon, has gained some prominent supporters. President Barack Obama’s 2009 nominee for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, former Georgetown University Law Center professor Chai Feldblum, disavowed her previously stated support for the 2006 manifesto “Beyond Same-sex Marriage,” which included support for households with “more than one conjugal partner.”

Regnerus was under attack for his study published in the Social Science Research on homosexual parents vs heterosexual ones.
