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.
