POLL: Homosexuality Viewed Differently Around The Globe

The Pew Research Center's Global Attitudes Project recently polled in 39 countries about the nature of homosexuality and noticed interesting geographical variations.
There is broad acceptance of homosexuality in North America, the European Union, and much of Latin America. However, rejection of homosexuality is equally widespread in predominantly Muslim nations and in sub-Saharan Africa, as well as in parts of Asia and in Russia. 
Views of homosexuality are particularly positive in Spain (88% say it should be accepted by society), Germany (87%), Czech Republic (80%), Canada (80%), Australia (79%), France (77%), Britain (76%), Argentina (74%), Italy (74%) and Philippines (73%). 
Conversely, fewer than one-in-ten in Nigeria (1%), Tunisia (2%), Ghana (3%), Senegal (3%), Egypt (3%), Jordan (3%), Indonesia (3%), Uganda (4%), Palestinian territories (4%) and Kenya (8%) say homosexuality should be accepted by society.
This can be be displayed graphically above on a map or in tabular form below.
