Hemant reposted one of these charts by the Pew Research Center which shows that of the religiously “unaffiliated” 66% support gay marriage, which exceeds the number of supporters in the nearest affiliated group by more than 10%.
But many commenters suggested that doesn’t tell the whole story, that atheists and agnostics would have an even higher percentage of support if looked at as a subset- that many of the unaffiliated are religious people who don’t identify as members of a church but who still believe church doctrine- and they are right.
When you get into the numbers for “unaffiliated” there is a category named Atheists/Agnostic and it shows that 80% of us support gay marriage.
Which leads me to say: hells yes, 80 percent! Number 1 as natural allies for oppressed minorities.
And, not to dwell on the negative, but: what the hell, you 20 percenters?
