I am also against abortion and for capital punishment. I think the best way to explain it to you is the same argument some pro abortion people use: If everyone conceived sins, and we already have too many people, thats just bad business. I would much rather get rid of the bad guys than the babies. I can't honestly understand how someone can be for killing innocent unborn children and against killing guilty convicts.
I am also for gay rights and against gay marriage.. The best way to explain this? They still deserve to have rights. But, marriage was created to join MAN AND WOMAN in God's eyes. How can you join someone is God's eyes, when God does not like homosexuality?
And, everyone of my friends from childhood and high school are gay or lesbian.. every single one, isn't that strange? They all know how I stand on this, and don't really mind, given that I think we should make it easier to change their names legally, be attached to each other financially, and live together, and if they are good people and can pass the background check, I say let them adopt. When they can marry in God's eyes, my marriage will mean nothing.
I also agree with teaching creationism along side evolution, and not each separately. This allows for every group of people to get taught EQUALLY all the theories. Only teaching evolution cheeses off christians, only teaching creationism cheeses off anyone else. It's the best policy IMO.
I think this is great, because though I am republican, I just couldn't see myself agreeing with him 100% on everything.. this is definitely going to help. I share the beliefs that she does. Already this morning, some people have started in on her about not aborting her some with DS, and saying she should have and she can't run for VP because of that. How Stupid?! That makes me like her more!
