I'm talking about stuff like the temperance movement, the drive towards centralized, state-run schools (fears of schools run by the foreign parents of immigrant children, or even worse, Catholics, played a major role in the government takeover of schools), anti-miscegenation legislation, Blue Laws, and so on. That's hardly even touching economic views - radical labor and agrarian populist groups like the Farmers-Alliance were arm-and-arm with social-conservatives. There was very much an alliance in that era between many social-conservatives who sought to use government power to create a virtuous society and populist economic groups. Being a social-conservative doesn't automatically bring about other conservative views on the nature of government, or economics.
Try to stay focused, for one thing Catholics are not social conservative voters, Evangelicals are.
People that are social liberals like you, are almost all democrats, people who are social conservatives are almost all conservative voters.
You don’t know that do you?
