American Muslims have become more accepting of homosexuality over the past decade, a new survey suggests.

The share of Muslim Americans who say homosexuality should be accepted by society has nearly doubled since 2007, according to the Pew Research Centre.

They say around half of US Muslims believe homosexuality should be accepted by society (52%), while 33% say homosexuality should be discouraged.

Today, US Muslims are more accepting of homosexuality than white evangelicals, the survey suggests.

“US Muslims hold more conservative views than the general public about homosexuality,” the report says.

“But, like the population at large, Muslims have become noticeably more accepting of homosexuality over the last 10 years.

 

“Today, about half of US Muslims say homosexuality should be accepted by society, while 33% say homosexuality should be discouraged.

“By comparison, in 2011, 39% of Muslims said homosexuality should be accepted; in 2007, just 27% held this view.”
