The Religious Left.
Recently we have been hearing the term The Religious Left.
But what is The Religious Left?
It is a term that refers to people who are left-wing politically but still believe in God.
So in fact it is quite a large demographic.
It includes Progressive Christians but it is not confined to church-going people.
It has developed because there are many people who contend that God is not confined to right-wing political thinking.
The Religious Left has a strong sense of Social Justice and tends to embrace more liberal and tolerant social attitudes including acceptance and affirmation of gays and lesbians.
We also have a strong commitment to the Gospel of Love.
So when you use the term religious be aware that it does not just refer to right-wing politics.
