Minnery-Deace radio interview

The above 9 minute video contains highlights from an March 27, 2009, interview with Tom Minnery of Focus on the Family Action by Steve Deace of WHO Radio Iowa. You can hear the whole 28 minute interview here.

This is a debate that is occurring, although usually behind the scenes, within the social conservative movement.

Should social conservatives stand on our principles without any room for compromise or should we be willing to accept some degree of compromise in order to win?

Have the so-called religious right conservatives had too much of the heady wine of political power and ruined their own witness to Christ?

Or have the machines of politics used the naivete of Christians to take their votes and then do as they please?

In the highlight, they have a heated debate over whether social conservative leaders should have spoken out against Mitt Romney and his weakness on pro-life and pro-family issues.
