The social issues are "teachable moments".

This is what I say when asked: While some may not agree with abortion or gay marriage or just the opposite, we believe that the federal government has no business legislating either subject. If anything, it is a state right, and then, a citizen can live in a state that has the same beliefs. I have found it to come off sounding softer and seems to get them thinking.
