    Sorry... I thought we were supposed to guess BDoop's age. I'm the 20-29 group. :S

    Neither do I, but the implication is that conservatives have done just that.

    Question for anyone over 40: On what issues have you changed your mind since your youth? For me, it's the death penalty and nuclear arms. 20 years ago I was against both. I listened, I learned, I evaluated. Nothing new has come up to cause me to reconsider.

    Having an open mind does not imply that one cannot at the same time come to a conclusion.

    And why do libs get to claim their minds are "open" as if they are willing to change, when in fact they're every bit as firm in their positions as any decent con?
    Whenever people refer to liberals and open minds, I always assume their talking about being open to change in society (i.e. supporting gay marriage vs. defending traditional marriage) and also open to the possibility of realizing their ideals (as opposed to what I've often heard many older conservatives say - "you young liberals think you can change the world, but you can't").

    The biggest one for me is walking away from fundamentalist christianity, which would of course be inclusive of an about-face on SSM and freedom of choice.

    But once you have come to a conclusion, have you not then "closed" your mind? Including deciding that you support SSM? You may be open to societal change, but your mind is made up. That's my whole thing.

    That makes sense to me.
