Having a 17 yr. old and being involved in coaching from 6yrs old. into HS, I can tell you one thing is for sure. Normal, rational folks from all walks of life can quickly go completely bat-shit crazy over something to do with their kids.
a lot of parents don't talk about nearly ANYTHING societal or cultural with their kids

Oh, I misunderstood you, thought you were referring to me for some reason... no doubt ignorance and fear play a big role for extremists of any type, not just pertaining to this issue.

I think with an economy in crisis people are really tuning into the inanity of these divisive social issues, which have been at the center of our presidential elections for the past 40 years. They aren't working this time and that's a very very good thing.
I agree to some extent, but social issues matter. Why do I say that? Simple, because the breakdown of social mores, etc has helped contribute to the economic crisis that we are facing. What is the major factor in our impending economic collapse? Greed and the lust for power. On top of that, folks want something for nothing. There is nothing outside of chasing the almighty buck anymore. Outside of this people don't really believe in anything. Nihlism is the order of the day, absolutely no morality at all. Gambling, drug and alcohol abuse, etc all have negative consequences on society as a whole.

In VA, it would depend on how the law was written, but I could vote against it.

(Not to completely derail the thread)That being said, I would be much more inclined to do so, if I knew as a quid pro quo those that support gay marriage would then support a national ban on third trimester abortion, except in the cases of a threat to the life of the mother.

The problem I have with the social issues crowd is that they feel the best way to deal with things like drugs, gambling or, in this case, homosexual behavior/marriage, is criminalization. The notion that we can do away with whatever we don't like with the wave of a legislative wand. There are always unintended consequences when you go that route, and, it only tends to make things worse. The War on Drugs is the very best example of this.

Also, when I pin social conservatives down on exactly how society is impacted by homosexual marriage, how they are directly affected, or how their marriage suffers because gays can call themselves married, nobody's been able to do it.

There's a mentality among too many of us which essentially says, "someone is doing something I don't like, so therefore, I want to see that activity banned." We often say our liberty and freedom is under attack from the political left. Well, we can clearly see that the political right also wants to take away our liberty and freedom too, just in different areas.

They lose a lot of "logic and rational" on most social issues it seems.
