Why Are Most Theists “Conservative”?

I realize this is a different question than I asked yesterday. But, I realized that they require two very different answers, and I only have theories for today's wording. Do theists align themselves with "conservatism" because "conservatism" tends to desire the legislation of a similar morality that they align themselves with? Or, in this country, where "theist" means Christian in 90% of cases, do Christian's simply have an inherent appreciation for the power of freedom?
