it's true that many do not agree. i doubt you'd find party that would truly represent all of us. i don't have a problem with the republican partys stand on those issues. it has nothing to do with religion. more to do with where i think the left would take us without that kind of push-back.
for instance, i don't think sex ed should be taught in school. i don't want the teacher to imprint on my child his/her beliefs about sexuality. our new "safe school czar" would be a good example of why we don't need teachers teaching kids about sex.
i have a problem with any theory being taught as fact. if you want to teach evolution, teach all the creation mythology of all cultures. teach them all as theory.
i do not have an issue with stem cell research, but i have a problem with federal dollars being spent on any of it, and a particular problem with fetal stem cell research. i believe it will happen in the private sector when the potential of profit is seen, but i see huge potential for abuse if stem cell treatments can do all that is hoped.
i have an issue with abortion. the legal abortion of yesterday would be a murder today. the age of viability changes with technology. until someone can definitively tell us when life begins, i think we should ere on the side of caution and not abort babies. it's not like birth control is hard to come by. we now have in the administration at least on person who has advocated euthanasia and withholding of care for babies who will not be productive citizens, or children who have not had enough invested in their future to make spending on them worthwhile. other countries have already decided that euthanasia is a good option. i don't think the leap between abortion and euthanasia is to hard to make.
so....i have basically the same positions, but not for religious reasons. :-)
we can only pick the person who most closely will represent our positions. it should not be about party.
"Ahmagonnajihad" heard some guy use it on the radio and there's no way I'm letting a gem like that fade away.
