OHh, I thought that might be what you were refering to. I didn’t want to go off on a rant without checking though.
Basically, all you are seeing here are different uses of the word “morality”. You are right that the issues in which Kerry polled ahead of Bush are “morally saturated issues”. However, that is not the sort of thing people think of when asked “Which candidate will handle the issue of ‘morality’ better”. As I used the word question in that question, people make all sorts of assumptions about which morality they are talking about. Those assumptions do not necessarily match the particular moral principles they might use to judge candidates possible performance on other issues like the health care or education.
For instance, when you ash about the “issue of morality” many people think of church attendance or school prayer. However, when you ask about education, few will quote the bible or even their local minister.
The point I’m trying to make (in my confused and round about way) is that while ““health care, education, the environment, Iraq, foreign policy and gun control” are all morally saturated issues”, morality itself is a political issue and it is not necessarily related to the others. At least not in the way you might think.
Did you whoosh me, or did you really not understand that the poll was showing that many people are actually in favor of the ban on gay marriage
