Republicans Not Likely to Embrace Equalitiy Anytime Soon

GayGallup-550x340This week featured a major event in the Republican Party’s still-ongoing evolution on gay marriage, with Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.) becoming the latest of a handful of congressional Republicans to say he supports it.

But while Democrats have come out en masse for gay marriage in the last couple of years, don’t expect a similar onslaught from the GOP any time soon.

The reason? The GOP is still struggling with the morality issue.

While Democrats have moved quickly away from the idea that gay and lesbian relations are morally wrong, Republicans are moving much more slowly. In fact, they’re barely more accepting of homosexuality today than they were a decade ago, according to Gallup, which has been asking Americans every year whether various behaviors are “morally acceptable” to them.
