In regards to the various views on homosexuality, factors which have affect on an individual's view of homosexuality are: religious/philosophical beliefs, geographic location, education, and age.[1][2][3][4] For example, in the United States those who are theists are more likely than atheists and agnostics to believe that homosexuality is morally unacceptable.[3]

According to the Pew Research Center in the United States "twice as many liberals as conservatives (46% versus 22%) say people are born homosexual."[5] In the United States liberals are also more likely to believe in the theory of evolution.[6] In 1993, M. Green wrote in BMJ (British Medical Journal) that there is a conflict in regards to the theory of evolution and the notion of genetic determinism in regards to homosexuality which many liberals subscribe to. M. Green wrote "...from an evolutionary perspective, genetically determined homosexuality would have become extinct long ago because of reduced reproduction.[7]
