Has acceptance of homosexuality become standard in the U.S.?

The head of Exodus International -- billed as the world's largest "gay conversion" Christian group -- said it was time for the organization to shut down because of changing attitudes towards homosexuality.


"I believe we’ve come to a time in the church when it’s time to lay our weapons down," Alan Chambers said at an Irvine conference. "We fought the culture and we’ve lost. But I think we’ve lost for a good reason because it’s time for peace."


The Florida-based ministry announced it was closing its doors Wednesday night, a day after Chambers apologized in a statement to members of the gay community for "years of undue judgment by the organization and the Christian Church as a whole.”

No, we are almost there though. I still think that most people don't accept gays, but the majority of those people are older, so it will take longer for them to come around. If it was the standard more of the gay marriage bills would have passed.

I wish that this argument was irrelevant but time can only tell...

Side: No

I have always ACCEPTED it just like I have always accepted any other sinful practice.

And I will always DISAGREE with it and consider it sinful behavior just like any other sinful practice.

NO ONE, NO THING, and NO LAW will ever change that, nor silence me on that outside of death.

Everyone else is welcome to discern what they mean by "acceptance" to their heart's content.

I don't expect a high volume of agreement with me...To each his own.

Why must you rely on cultist scriptures for an opinion, can't you accept homosexuality as indeed a given instead of a choice.

The fact that you think it is sinful just shows you haven't accepted it, also if it was accepted there would be less intolerance and people wouldn't be getting in a moral panic at the thought of two people of the same sex who are in love marrying.

Alas there is still intolerance and people still think Gays getting married will be the end of the world, so it has yet to be accepted.

I think so. However, it's become such an over-saturated topic, with people being so over the top and annoying about it. Like dude, we get it. You're attracted to the same gender. That's cool and all, but don't people on a pedestal for it.

Side: Yes
