Do social conservatives seriously think they are on the winning side? Social conservatism has never won a major battle in the US that hasn't been overturned. Prohibition being the biggest socially conservative win...for a decade and then it was realized that legislating morality is a concept that is impossible and stupid. As far a the religious nut jobs that seem to think the average American wants or cares about what they say, you stay in the South and we'll continue to advance the rest of the country and throw you some scraps. When you're ready to stop your crusade, feel free to look us up.
