This is a website for any who identify as Mormon to discuss the intersection of liberal politics and all things Mormon. Though this group is not partisan in nature, it is intended more as a gathering place for Mormons who are left-leaning politically. Whatever your party affiliations may be, if you are interested in discussing the intersection of liberalism and Mormonism, then you’ve found the right place. If this group has any ax to grind, it would be to dispel the view that Mormonism is solely compatible with contemporary conservative thought, and to then point out that it may even be more compatible with contemporary liberal thought. We invoke and adapt Brother Harry Reid’s statement, “I’m a liberal because I’m a Mormon, not in spite of it.”
As the site progresses we would like to highlight current mormon liberals who are active political players and discuss with them their views and how their religious and political views inform each other. We hope to highlight some of our liberal/progressive mormon heritage as well as discuss current political issues. We also plan to explore the radical messages mormonism has for society. Please have patience as we finish construction on the site.
