According to the study released by the SWS on Saturday, about 61 percent of Filipinos said they disagree with the proposed law that would permit same-sex marriages in the country.

The SWS study showed that about 44 percent of the total 1,200 surveyed nationwide said they “strongly disagree” with the proposed law while 17 percent said they “somewhat disagree” with it.  The SWS survey ran from from March 23 to 27, 2018.

The SWS noted that most of those who opposed belong to Christian denominations, followed by members of the Muslim and Roman Catholic faiths.

Meanwhile, 22 percent of the surveyed respondents said they agree with the proposal to have  a same-sex marriage law in the country.

The survey also revealed that about 16 percent of the respondents said they are still undecided on their support to the  proposed law.

The SWS study was conducted using a face-to-face interview with  1,200 respondents.

However, the polling body did not specifically identify if the respondents were members of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender community.

The survey had a  margin of error of ±3 percent for national percentages and ±6 percent each for Metro Manila, Balance Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.  /muf
