Poll: Take heart, gays, as these respondents only find us to be a minor moral crisis

by Jeremy Hooper

In a poll released today by the Center For American Progress, only 3% of respondents indicated that "abortion and homosexuality" as our nation's most serious moral crises, with "kids not raised with the right values, "corruption in government/business," "greed and materialism," and "too much sex and violence in the media" all pulling higher immoral ranks.

Responding to the poll, we just want to take a sec to remind all involved that a woman's right to terminate a pregnancy and a man's right to smooch a dude are not, in fact, the same thing. Don't get us wrong -- we're totally happy that the respondents ranked the two so low on their compass of immorality. However, we think giving each "issue" could be worthy of its own box in the next poll.

Now if you'll excuse me, I must go as Planned to my Parent's hood to fight for a man's right to shoes.
