"family values"

Posted by Word Camel on August 05, 2004

Greetings all,

Taking time from my holiday for a question that has come up. Does anyone know who coined the term "family values"? I'm guessing it originates in the late 70's/ early 80's and that it is political jargon but I'd like to know for sure.

All is well here in spite of the 3 foot long reptile lurking in the basement.
