Even within a denomination, individuals and groups may hold different views, and not all members of a denomination necessarily support their church's views on homosexuality.

Christianity and homosexuality - Wikipedia

As support for same-sex marriage has increased, other attitudes about homosexuality have changed as well. These opinions represent a shift over the past decade, even if in some cases the short-term changes have been modest. That is little changed since , but much higher than in the early s. Slightly more people now say they know a lot of gays or lesbians than did so two years ago. While large majorities of almost all demographic and partisan groups say they know someone who is gay or lesbian, there are differences in both the number of gay and lesbian acquaintances people have and in whether people say they have close family members or friends who are gay. Millennials and Xers are also somewhat more likely than Boomers — and particularly Silents — to say they have close family members or friends who are gay. There are differences by religious affiliation in the number of gays and lesbians people know.
