Is this your tribe? If so, please post and tell us more about yourself, and your thoughts about faith and politics in America.

Heartland Culture Warriors

Who are they: Conservative Catholics and conservative mainline Protestants, Latter-day Saints, and other smaller groups. Slightly less orthodox than the Religious Right (54% of the Protestants are biblical literalists; 60% of the Catholics agree with papal infallibility) and more theologically diverse. But they are regular churchgoers (three-quarters report attending worship service weekly or more often).

Ideology: Conservative: 50%, Moderate: 41%, Liberal: 10%

[b]What they care about:[b] Like the Religious Right, conservative on social issues--73% support traditional marriage and half say their faith is important to their political thinking. They support churches being active in politics but also give attention to economic and foreign policy issues.
