Ran across these studies and wondered about why it seems that many that support things like C-F-A tend to not investigate the entities and causes they support. If they did they would Surely (there's that name again) not support these things when they say they support the things those same entities are vehemently trying to suppress and in fact donate to causes that would deny their own children if they were gay equal rights and in some cases condemn those children to death if they could. This brings a number of current threads to light the C-F-A thread being just one example. Perhaps this is the answer.

"Liberals and conservatives may find themselves disagreeing on issues as wide-ranging as the future of the NHS, the UK's involvement in Afghanistan and whether students should pay tuition fees at university, but could these differences be a result of different brain structures? New research commissioned by the Today Programme and led by Wellcome Trust Senior Research Fellow Professor Geraint Rees suggests that this may be so."
"Earlier studies had found links between low levels of education and higher levels of prejudice, so studying intelligence seemed a logical next step to Hodson.
As suspected, low intelligence in childhood directly corresponded with bigotry in adulthood. But the factor that explained the relationship between these two variables was political: When researchers included conservatism in the analysis, it accounted for much of the link between brains and bias.
Not only are children with low IQs more likely to become prejudiced as adults, but Dr. Hodson uncovered a hidden bias that exposes a link between prejudice and conservative beliefs."
