What does Conservatism have to do with abortion...or gay marriage? Nothing. It is a purely rightwing Christian agenda. How long has that agenda had a monopoly on this free country? How many times does religious beliefs lead the charge when a Republican or Tea Bagger is running for office?<quoted text>
For the same reason Democrats support unions, environmentalists and abortions: to buy votes and financial support.
Don't act like Republicans are the only people doing it.
At least the Dems don't whore out Jesus to get votes and only an idiot would think Obama got elected because he gave out free phones. It's no wonder your camp is viewed as a bunch of inbred, out of touch, Bible thumping racists.
But that still doesn't answer my question...Why shouldn't churches have to pay taxes? Good luck.
