Why Won't Conservatives Just Drop Social Issues?

Hit the road, Jack, and don't you come back no more, no more, no more! Hit the road, Jack. I like the song! Now, seriously: Immorality is a choice. Fine. But immorality has a way to come out as BAD, AND BECOMES SUBJECT TO CRITICISM. Whoever made a bad choice hates that. So, the best strategy to "excuse" it, "justify" it, and pretend it is GOOD, is to eliminate ANYTHING that opposes it: God, The Ten Commandments, the Church, Religion, the conservatives, etc. We do not stop anyone from making a choice, even if it is BAD. But, if we respect the right of the sinner, we cannot accept the sin, much less swallow the idea that WE HAVE TO PAY FOR IT!

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....
