    There is a social conservative faction in the UK but it is much smaller than in the US.  Like the US, it is primarily found in the conservative party, although there is small but active faction of cultural conservatives in the Labour party as well.  Many British conservatives hold U.S. religious conservatives in low esteem.  (Boris Johnson, the Conservative mayor of London, is a big marriage equality supporter, and is a likely challenger to Cameron.)
