Why does the Bush administration have a critical stance toward abortion and gay marriage?

Is there a reason for this? Do they just want to anger a lot of people? Why are they bothering themselves with how to destroy the rights of individual people by taking away our 9th amendment right? Even if such a thing like gay marriage bothers them, which, I understand, why do they feel a need to make a big deal out of it and take the right of it away from the people that want to do it? Isn't this a violation of our constitution, and, since Bush has gotten away with violating our constitution time and time again, does this prove that Bush is above the law, or at least, that he acts like it?

It is a position born out of faith. Not faith on the part of the administration, but the faith which a very large number of Americans share.

If you want to sport those 20million plus evangelicals, you need to promote blind hatred.

You give him too much credit for wanting to help anyone. Perhaps its the support of those evangelicals for himself that he was seeking to obtain through pandering to their hatefulness.
good point either way tho.

This topic seems like baiting to me. Isn't it obvious that the President's constituents mainly share his sentiments on gay rights and abortion? They are two major tenets of social conservatism. Granted, in every other way concievable the President is not socially conservative at all, choosing only to harp on these two most meaningless issues. But they are issues that bring the evangelicals to the polls, which should be obvious enough reason for him to take such a stance.

Surely this was a rhetorical question, no?
