Why Won't Conservatives Just Drop Social Issues?

One idiocy of your comment is that you presume that gay people actually choose their preference much like yourself, and since there is not gene yet identified to isolate your hereditary sexuality, there isn't yet the same on the other side. Another is that the March of time I was referring is clearly identified in our social mores and constructs from when women were once themselves considered chattle to the "moral depravity" of laws against interracial marriage. That fact that your head is so far up your b*t t about "your definition" of traditional values that you can't see that is not surprising. Lastly, I am neither an aethist or a Muslim and I believe anyone can believe whatever they want so long as it doesn't interfere with my life.

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....
