Poll: Americans morally oppose cloning, cheating & polygamy; birth control, alcohol & divorce OK

(UPI) -- Many Americans consider birth control, alcohol and divorce to be morally acceptable issues -- while extramarital affairs, suicide, polygamy and human cloning are mostly considered immoral, a new survey said Wednesday.

Gallup said in the new research Americans have taken a more liberal view on most behaviors since it first started asking the questions in the early 2000s.

In the poll, birth control had almost universal acceptance at 92 percent, while acceptance for alcohol use was 79 percent and divorce 77 percent. Conversely, 89 percent said extramarital affairs was morally wrong. Eighty-five percent said the same about human cloning, and 79 percent for suicide.

Other issues are also gaining acceptance, including smoking marijuana (65 percent), having a baby outside marriage and embryonic stem cell research (both 64 percent). Sixty-three percent voiced acceptance for same-sex relationships. Of the 21 issues in the poll, 13 are considered morally acceptable by the majority of liberals. Nine are acceptable to a majority of conservatives.


RIP Bill Buckner

Bill Buckner, the longtime major leaguer whose error in the 1986 World Series for years lived in Red Sox infamy, died Monday. He was 69.

"After battling the disease of Lewy Body Dementia, Bill Buckner passed away early the morning of May 27th surrounded by his family," his family said in a statement. "Bill fought with courage and grit as he did all things in life. Our hearts are broken but we are at peace knowing he is in the arms of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."

Buckner played 22 seasons in the majors, was an All-Star once and won a batting title in 1980. But it was a ball that went through his legs at Shea Stadium on a cool Oct. 25 night in 1986 that made for one of baseball's most shocking moments.

A baseball and football star growing up in Napa, California, Buckner was a second-round draft pick of the Dodgers in 1968, going one round after Los Angeles took Bobby Valentine. Buckner made his major league debut as a 19-year-old in 1969, beginning the first of what turned out to be eight seasons with the Dodgers.

California cat chases off coyotes -- watch the vid!

A 16-year-old cat named Tigger was confronted by two hungry coyotes early Thursday. And as security footage of the encounter shows, the feline came out victorious in the end, chasing the predators away.


Damn! 16 years old. Getting old and crusty! Coyotes definitely picked the wrong place!

The hunter becomes the hunted...


A sticky situation

All agreed?

Iran wants war!

Pretty obvious, isn't it? They're itching for a fight!
