On Selective Morality and Being a “Conservative”

Do some Christians pick and choose the things about which they are morally outraged? Don Miller thinks anyone who does that should stop calling themselves “theologically conservative” and admit the truth:

…I do not believe a person can take two issues from Scripture, those being abortion and gay marriage, and adhere to them as sins, then neglect much of the rest and call himself a fundamentalist or even a conservative. The person who believes the sum of his morality involves gay marriage and abortion alone, and neglects health care and world trade and the envirnoment and loving his neighbor and feeding the poor is, by definition, a theological liberal because he takes what he wants from scripture and ignores the rest.

Do you think he has a point here?
