Almost 70 percent of people in Singapore disapprove of same-sex relationships, a recent study has found. The number of people who disapprove was highest among Singaporean Muslims, Christians and Hindus. The working paper, produced by the Singapore-based think-tank the Institute of Policy Studies, looked at the responses of 1,800 Singaporeans about their views on religion. However, LGBTI rights advocates in Singapore have called the survey’s methodology into question. The survey’s findings come amid a renewed push for greater rights by LGBTI advocacy groups in Singapore. The survey found that 67.9 percent of those surveyed responded that ‘sexual relations between two adults of the same sex’ was ‘always wrong’. Just 16.4 percent of those polled said that same-sex relations were ‘not wrong at all’. The trends found that negative attitudes towards same-sex relationships were highest among Muslims at 85 percent.
