Ok, you oppose using government as a agent to affect societal change for the benefit of a minority, in this case upper class white women, against the will of the majority of it's peoples for abortion but you are a supporter of this same tactic in the case of gay marriage, also for the benefit of a minority against the wishes of the majority of americans? Have you thought this thing thru? Am I misreading your position on this?
I'm not looking at this thru the lens of religion. I don't attend church. I see both issues thru the lens of it's effects on my culture and the democratic party's commitment to identity politics.
I must also reiterate my support for the idea of a government commited to representing it's people. The problems with a multi-cultural society such as our is the government cannot adequately represent all the needs and wants of so many different cultures. Using government to advance the cause of one culture/sub-culture means a loss for the other cultures making up this country. At some point it will experience an epic failure. It's mearly a question of time.
