elchip: Corvus: Can you point me out the bible verse where Jesus said homosexuality is wrong?

He did condemn sexual immorality, and one would assume he was referring to the misdeeds listed in the OT when he said that.


Jesus also knew how to manage his alts.

Serious Black: abb3w: You guys don't understand. You've already lost. The current generation doesn't care.

Just curious if you have any idea why the numbers for people agreeing are higher for those born in the 1910's than any other group until the 1950's.


Quirk of a small sample size, possibly? I'm guessing there were fewer people around to do surveys from that group, for obvious reasons.

I wonder what happened in the twenties to cause that dip.

nmrsnr: DarnoKonrad: Cancer/Cornea paper cut 2012

have you ever had a cornea paper cut? I have ( thrown book, 3rd grade, odd story). It's the most painful thing I've experienced. Everything would be fine, then I'd try to open my eye because I'd have a momentary laps of judgement and then the world would go away and I'd just scream and cry for 5-10 minutes.

I'm not saying I'm selfish enough to inflict Perry on the nation, but it's a close call.


Actually, yes, I've had a corneal abrasion. The most painful farking thing of my life and I was on morphine and hyrdrocodone and had just had face surgery. The eye was by and far the worst.

Wild guesses; no serious clue.
"All I know is what I read in the papers General Social Survey."
There's also a faint trace in the 1988 MARHOMO data, which I'd write off as pure artifact otherwise.

kimwim: My guess is they were the flapper generation


Or thereabouts. Some might also have been influence echoes of the last Freethinker boom.
It's also imaginable the open-minded are more willing to listen when the doctor tells them that "If you keep on doing ____, you're going to DIE!" Sure, some survive regardless, but if more tend to survive among those that listen....

Still, blaming the flappers works for a first approximation.
I really need to visit an old folks home and do some interviews before that oral (...er?...) history dies out.

It's the holidays; feel free to break out the sherry to get grandma talkative, if you can stand it.

That's a major factor, yes; enough that increasing "liberality" on the question over time within cohorts is non-trivial.
