Cultural conservatives realize that they are a political minority in America. With the glaring exception of abortion (American support for pro-life positions has increased over the past two decades), they have largely lost the battles for what the believe are fundamental family values necessary for the nation to succeed and prosper. As a political force, they’ve moved from their “Moral Majority” days of offense to a position of defense. They’re asking the tolerant, inclusive Left to simply leave them alone. Their belief that progressives are determined to force them into accepting liberal views was one reason many evangelicals set aside their “Character counts” mantra in order to back Trump. The Left, they believe, isn’t interested in political co-existence, but rather total victory.
