The lines between the religious Left and the religious Right definitely blur from the Libertarian-leaner's point of view. Government involvement and laws that prohibit have - in many more cases than not - negative consequences.
Since I'm a Libertarian Christian (a non-common combination), I find myself caught between party policy sometimes. I like to focus, primarily, on the New Testament when looking for policy guidance as it jives with my faith. Yet, at the same time, I don't see how anyone can come up with the absurd conclusion that a life isn't life until it passes through the birth canal, for example.
My bottom line is this: political leanings, support, and ties don't necessarily fall into nice, neat, demographic-pigeon-holling packages.

Well I could be construed as a socially conservative libertarian.

"I'm a Libertarian Christian ..."
That's great, if true. Libertarian-anything else is an oxymoron.
The Framers of our Constitution understood that perfectly.
