JUDAISM AND HOMOSEXUALITY
As increasing amounts of young people become more in favor of gay marriage and begin to view homosexuality as something that is natural, rather than a choice or a sin, they are shifting into a stance that differs from that of religion. Although the Jewish religion does not denounce homosexuality as openly as other religions do, it is still not in favor of it, causing young Jews to lose faith in their religion. The younger generation tends to stick with their moral values over their religious values, and they will continue to support gay marriage and gay rights regardless of what their religion says. Orthodox Judaism is most likely to denounce homosexuality because it has a strict following of the Bible, while Reform Judaism, which does not follow the Bible as strictly, is less likely to convey as strong of a negative opinion on the subject. Regardless of what sect a young Jew belongs to, they are not likely to be in favor of their religion's standpoint on homosexuality, and will not look to Judaism as a moral guideline on the subject.
