I was wondering which Christian denominations are the most socially conservative. If I were to list them, it would be in this order:

Conservative

Jehovah's Witness
Assemblies of God
Southern Baptist Convention
United Methodist Church
Religious Society of Friends
United Church of Christ
Metropolitan Community Church

Liberal

PLEASE ADD YOUR OWN LIST!!!
Pro-Life Quotes:

"I've noticed that everyone who is for abortion has already been born."
- Ronald Reagan

"The care of human life and happiness, and not their destruction, is the first and only object of good government."
- Thomas Jefferson

"A person is a person no matter how small."
- Dr. Seuss

Well, I wouldn't have the JW's on there at all.

wouldn't Catholicism be progressive (socially)?

That would depend on how you define progressive.

If you mean that there is a strong emphasis on care for the poor and mercy for all, then yes it is "progressive".

If however, you are talking about adherence to traditional Christian morals then it is the most "conservative":

- No divorce
- No masturbation
- No abortion
- No sex outside of marriage (straight or gay)
- No artificial contraception

However, Christianity shouldn't be thought of as progressive or conservative. It is either orthodox or not.

- No homosexuality*
I would add that because homosexuals can now "marry" legally and it's still a sin.

I thought that was made obvious in:

- No sex outside of marriage (straight or gay)

since a civic marriage is not valid within the Church. Maybe not explicit enough for this site...

So you believe in mixing of religion and state? Well, that worked out in Saudi Arabia...

According to the Christian religion a same-sex marriage is invalid in the eyes of God (therefore a gay married couple having sex is having sex outside of marriage according to the Christian perspective). The state may recognize a gay marriage but the Christian will consider it illegitimate. Your talk of the mixing of church and state is a red herring.
