A lot of conservatives don't much like PEW research, lol. That tso many of hose of the Christian left are actually starting to stand up and say, we are here, and enough is enough, I think has totally shocked the CR and scares the bejabbers out of them. We progresives are so pacifist, you know., real chickens and all that,.
A lot of what is being claimed as conservative right now, in the 'new conservatism', is actually liberatarian. Ayan Rand influence and the like. Who, ironically, was social Darwinist and rabidly atheist, lol, though many 'new conservatives' even on the religious right are embracing her and her ideologies without realizing that, never having read her themselves.
According to a recent PEW research poll, only 37% of Americans will admit to being a liberal. However, when asked about specif questions, from gun control to welfare, 73% of Americans ARE liberal. What has happened is a few loudmouthed entertainers have turned liberal into a bad word. It's not. Jesus was a liberal. Liberals want to protect the rights of everyone, even people they disagree with. Sometimes that protection comes in direct conflict with some old ideologies.
In the end, most of us agree on what is right and wrong, it's only when politics come into play that things get nasty.
