Religion: I'm not saying drop religion altogether. Just don't base the majority of policy on religion. Don't place it on some stylite as if we must obey Christianity.

War on Drugs: At a minimum stop opposing Medical Marijuana, and even recreational.

Abortion: The problem is not abortion per se, it's the liberal application of it. IF it were really Safe and rare, as it is often touted, many of us wouldn't have a problem with it. But sometimes it's important to have it legal for reasons other than just rape, or the life of the mother. I mean my ex had 4 abortions because her prior boyfriend used pregnancy as a chain to keep her in the house. Besides, I don't want to have women forced to claim rape when the boyfriend breaks up with her after he finds out she's pregnant.

Safe Sex: We agree... nothing to add.

Adam and Eve/Steve: Technically, both Adam and Eve were created together.

And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth. And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for meat. And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to every thing that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green herb for meat: and it was so. And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.
Though Genesis 2 kind of contradicts that, as it then talks of making woman of man blah blah... Either way, I'm from a Christian background, but not Christian. Kind of like the nation. I have (mostly) Christian morals, but not tied to the Christian religion.

DADT: the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell was coupled with the military no longer caring about the answer to the question. If you're gay and admit it, there is no retribution from the military.
