    I doubt that, but evangelicals certainly seem to obsessed with the issue, trying to pass constitutional amendments banning it.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I am currently attending the Assemblies of God church my brother pastors. I skipped the last two Sundays and will be skipping this coming Sunday so I don't have to hear the dire warnings about abortion and gay marriage. If the GOP was going to actually ban abortion, they would have done it in the eighties or nineties. I amazed that they still believe it's a real party goal.
    “There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.”

    The issue is up to the Supreme Court....the GOP was never in a position to overturn Roe v. Wade themselves. I think the last major decision regarding it was 5-4 in support back in 1992, and it would have gone the other way if Kennedy hadn't changed his mind. The ideological balance within the Court has been pretty stable since then, and Kennedy's still there....if someone prioritizes abortion (on either side), they have good reason to vote for a specific party, especially since several Justices are now over 75.

    Yeah. Obviously. I mean, I'm not even gay and never post about anything else.

    In the process of courting alienated minority voters the Democrats went just as overboard ('gonna put ya'll back in chains!' was simply the most blatant example); they calculated that they had to do that to win, they were right (in the practical sense).

    They lost a good portion of the white vote from previous years, including the 18-29 bracket....trust me, there isn't any Democratic strategist who isn't almost as worried as the Republicans with the demographic voting trends. Incidentally, members of both both parties voted almost monolithically for their partisan candidate, and even Independents favored Romney.....there was no working class/moderate Republican 'revenge'.

    I would just like to point out that Zarathustra hasn't participated in this thread since Obama's victory.

    I bet prescriptions for ADs just doubled this week for the non-Obama demographic.
