    Its important to realize that the major divide in the US is between church and non-church goers (has the highest correlation to voting tendencies). And that is why abortion is such a big issue because you have evangelicals on one-side, seculars on the other and catholics in the middle. In general catholics would side with seculars (because they tend to be social liberals - support stuff like universal health care) except the abortion and gay rights issue pull them to the right. I wish I knew how to convince them that these issues are not more important than loving your neighbour (platonically of course), but it seems like the only solution is for the crazies to shoot themselves in the foot.
