Why Won't Conservatives Just Drop Social Issues?

A prime example of the intolerance of homosexuals is the attitude towards the Boy Scouts of America. Why can't the homosexuals just form their own organization that encourages parents to leave their under age sons with adult homosexual men instead of trying to force their way into the Boy Scouts?

Good question, and one that was asked of me by a conservative veterinarian friend of mine last week. He is completely on board with conservative fiscal principles, (when applied), but he doesn’t understand WHY we on the “Religious Right” are still concerned about abortion, gay marriage, etc. “You need to drop it”, he said.

Let me try to explain why we don’t and why we shouldn’t. Those of us on the Religious Right, contrary to popular belief, are not interested in taking away rights from those who disagree with us. We’re just trying to maintain what rights we have left....
