Your views on controversial issues and your parents'

Do your views on controversial issues (abortion, gay marriage, legalization of marijuana, etc) match with your parents' views?? 


With my mother they don't. She is very religious and old school: adamently pro-life in all circumstances whereas I am pro-choice; I am absolutely for gay marriage, she feels it's a sin to even be gay; I'm for legalization even though I don't smoke, she isn't and hopes it never passes.  With my father, we agree on mostly everything. He doesn't like abortion but he respects a woman's right to choose, he has no problem with gay marriage, and he's a smoker so I'm sure he's for the legalization of marijuana. The only thing we aren't in agreement on is gun control. [[For the record, my parents are divorced, as you can read they are complete opposites]]

Nope. Not even a little bit. There are a few less controversial things we agree on I suppose. We are the exact opposite on all things politics and politically driven.

My dad is pro-choice, I'm pro-life, we are both for gay marriage, against gun control and for the legalization if Mary Jane.

We both lean to the right of center but I can't stand most GOP leaders. He's a little more conservative than I am but has some left leaning views.

no. my mother is pro-life. she doesn't know i've had an abortion but she knows i am very pro choice.

she's on the same side with me when it comes to gay marriage. she believes it should be allowed.

she's very pro-God, and anti Obama whereas I voted for him and I don't believe religion should be allowed in government or in schools.


my dad, on the other hand, we are definitely one in the same.
