Millennial Impact

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. Learn more about how Unitarian Universalists and the Unitarian Universalist Association stand for social justice. Read the results of the PRRI survey.
