The first Friday of every month, I join Austin Hill on his morning show on My Faith Radio. This week, Austin’s staff reached out and asked me if I’d hop on for an extra segment to chat about a recent Christian Science Monitor article about the growing group of Millennial Evangelicals accepting homosexuality. Here is an excerpt from the article:
Across America, many Evangelicals, estimated to be about 25 percent of the US population and a potent political force, have been grappling with the swift-moving cultural changes that have transformed attitudes about LGBT people and have so far made same-sex marriage legal in 37 states and Washington, D.C.
As a group, Evangelicals remain by far those most opposed to same-sex marriage in the United States, a Pew Research poll found last September. But over the past decade, support has nearly doubled among this mostly conservative segment of Christianity. In 2004, 11 percent of white evangelical Protestants expressed support for allowing gays and lesbians to marry. By 2014, a younger generation of Evangelicals had pushed this figure to 21 percent, according to the Pew survey.
I point out some key distinctions that need to be made when it comes to conversations like this and we marvel at voodoo technology.
I will be on with Austin next week for our normal time, and I’ll be sure to post that as well.
