Findings from the recently released Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) survey on the change in attitude toward same-sex marriage and LGBTQ issues amongst people of faith since 2003 show that fully one-third of Millennials who left their church over the past 10 years did so because of anti-gay policies or attitudes. And while a majority of the people polled stated that judgmental positions or policies of religious groups on gay and lesbian issues is alienating to young adults, a much larger majority of Millennials (70%) agreed.


In addition to this being good news for progressive, non-dogmatic faiths such as Unitarian Universalism, a welcoming faith that has been in the forefront of the struggle for marriage-equality and Gay rights, this new survey also illuminates the shifting political and social trends related to LGBTQ identity in America.
