Americans may have misplaced their collective moral compass on a majority of issues—but apparently extramarital affairs are still off limits.
According to a new Gallup poll, Americans are still on board with the 7th Commandment: “Do not commit adultery.”
Only 9 percent say adultery is morally acceptable.
Americans are softening their stance on other moral issues that are traditionally considered sinful—reaching levels of acceptance never seen before.
Birth control, divorce, sex between an unmarried man and woman, gay or lesbian relations, having a baby outside of marriage, doctor-assisted suicide, pornography and polygamy all had the highest percentage of U.S. adults claiming they were morally acceptable since Gallup began asking about each issue, according to LifeWay.
