Maggie Gallagher accurately pinpoints social conservatives' waning influence

by Jeremy Hooper
Screen Shot 2012-11-05 At 9.54.15 Am Social conservatives are absent from this election. Their money isn’t being used in any visible way to organize voters. If Romney loses, this will be part of the reason why.

If Romney wins — and I think he will — look for an intense effort to finally push social issues out of the party.

Christian conservatives who care about life, marriage, and religious liberty need to create effective political vehicles for demonstrating and acting on this concern. Or we are going to wake up like Europe with no political vehicle for a voice. [

Like Europe, Maggie? No, that continent doesn't yet have full marriage equality. North America's likely to be there sooner.
