Social issues, such as gay marriage, abortion and religion, are coming to the fore at this weekend’s Value Voters Summit, sponsored by the Family Research Council. Top Republicans are speaking at the gathering, including all the presidential candidates except Jon Huntsman, House Speaker John Boehner, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, and Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, The Hill reports.

Media luminaries Glenn Beck, Laura Ingraham, and Mark Levin also are slated to appear. Conservatives will get a chance to shift away from the predominant political dialogue over the economy to address the social issues that concern them.

“These issues are front and center. The social issues are intertwined with the fiscal issues,” Family Research Council President Tony Perkins told The Hill on Thursday. “People understand the reason we have big, expensive government is because we have neglected and in many ways discouraged family formation, and that core economic foundation, which is the family.”
