aintnothing...The first abolitionist leaders were Christian. You could say that they were not conservative; however, the Christian values that conservatives hold now have not changed from the values that those abolitionists held. What's more, Christian conservatives now decry abortion as the killing of a life. What if 100 years from now, the view that abortion is murder were to become the norm? Would people like you (a progressive, I presume) say "...but they were not really conservatives..."?
