A Pew Research Center on Global Views Poll found that the most accepting country in the world for gay people is Spain. Of the forty country where gay people are accepted, Spain tops the list in every poll. (Above: Spanish youths celebrated in 2005 when theirs became the third European country to legalize same-sex marriage. Gay couples can also adopt children there, whether they're married or not.)
Fifty-five percent of Spanish participants surveyed in the poll described homosexuality as "morally acceptable," and equally important 38 percent deemed it "not a moral issue." Only six percent in Spain felt that homosexuality was "morally unacceptable."
The results were less optimistic in nations like Ghana and Russia, where 98 percent and 72 percent of participants deemed homosexuality "morally unacceptable."
In the United States 35 percent felt that homosexuality was "not a moral issue," while 37 percent described it as "morally unacceptable." Twenty-three percent of Americans felt it was "morally acceptable," according to the poll. To be clear 60 percent of Americans are not against gay people marrying. The only place this figure does not hold up is among those people who suppose to represent Americans: The US Congress.
