    Do you believe in capital punishment? Yes

    Do you believe in evolution? Do you think it should be taught in public schools?
    Yes and I don't care

    Do you believe in god? Yes but organized religion isn't my thing

    Do you believe in the right to abortion? Only in cases of nesecisty such as threat to the mother's life.

    Do you believe in typical gender roles? I must because we sort of go by them. LOL

 Those are some deep questions for 6:20AM lol!!!

I'm such a grey area person that many questions such as these are difficult for me to answer with a simple yes or no...I'll try.

Capital Punishment~ No
Evolution~ No, but it's possible/Yes
God~ I am learning that I lean towards Agnostic.  My heart says there IS a God so maybe I am just someone w/out a specific religion. ??? 
Abortion~ No, but I am not going to try to tell others what to do with their body. ETA: I had to read the question again.  Yes, I do believe in the right to choose it (or not).
Gender roles~ Yes to an extent I guess.  I think people should do what they are comfortable with.  I mean I am not about to go change the oil in the car but if dh wants to scrub a toilet then that is fine with me. LOL!

It sounds like our "religion" views are similar. I believe there is a God but I don't believe what any of the major religions push. I believe a person's relationship with God is private and I really think of God as being someone who gave the world a jump start and then moved on to deal with better things. LOL
