Comment: I would say yes, he is

(See in situ)

I would say yes, he is

He is a solid family man. He loves God. He believes there is truth. He supports tradition, certainly in the way he lives his life. He believes in individual responsibility - that people are responsible to take care of themselves and their families and to do the right things. He believes honesty and integrity are important. He is loyal. He believes in fidelity. He supports community. He does not believe the ends justify the means. He is a staunch supporter of marriage. He is pro-life. He believes in voluntary charity as a moral imperative. He tries to treat others as he would like to be treated (see foreign policy). He believes in justice. He believes it is important to be a good role model. He believes strongly in the importance of fatherhood and grandfatherhood. He speaks out against irresponsible behavior (He is not libertine). He does not use drugs or alcohol.

So, I would say he is definitely a social conservative. One can be a social conservative without being a religious fundamentalist or even religious at all, which is a distinction we often blur.
