Must Christians only support Social Conservatives? Why or why not?

I simply hope to start a dialog with this post. Please comment with your thoughts. The question is simple: Must Christians only support Social Conservatives? Why or why not?

This question comes to mind because I recently created a Facebook page to encourage someone to run for Congress from Maine’s 2nd district. He is a qualified businessman, community leader, and former City Councilor and Mayor. I have thrown my early support and encouragement behind this candidate because I consider him a friend, and honestly feel he has the skill set to succeed and best represent Maine on the national stage.

However, within an hour of publishing this Facebook page I received a private Facebook message from the leader of a major Christian organization in Maine with the question: “Aaron, are you aware of this candidate’s positions on social issues?”
