Do Agnostics approve of homosexual marriages, or just traditional marriages?

The Patriarch replies:


I cannot speak for all agnostics. However, in my experience, most agnostics find no moral problems in same-sex relationships between consenting adults.

Some do have a problem - the general argument being that it is not natural. But scientific findings seem to indicate that for at least some homosexuals, attraction to those of the same sex is entirely natural.

Most of those agnostics who accept the validity of same-sex relationships think that homosexuals should have the same rights as everyone else. That includes the right to enter into a binding mutual commitment with another adult for life.
