Latinos strongly agree with same-sex couples

When it comes to being gay in the Latino community, it seems as though opinions are changing. A recent NBC Latino/IBOPE Zogby survey says 6 out of 10 Latinos in the sample agree that same-sex couples have the right to marry. Thirty eight percent said they disagree and 31 percent said they did so strongly. Sometimes I wonder about these polls because asking in the moment or conversation is different than asking in a survey. A lot of factors also come into play like if the respondents actually have children who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.

President Obama may have favored gay marriage, but there are always the skeptics. We all have difference of opinion. Latinos are naturally religious. We go by what the book says. Throughout the years these things have changed though; the landscape of what exactly a Latino in America is different. However, the party I found hilarious (but not) was what would be the biggest disappointment for you when it comes to your child(ren)? Survey says: Being a drug addict. Being sent to prison. Being gay is at the bottom of the barrel.
