About

This is a website for any who identify as Mormon to discuss the intersection of liberal politics and all things Mormon.

This site is not partisan in nature, though 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.

We welcome any comments, questions, or suggestions. Contact us: admin@mormonliberals.org

    The Good Samaritan, or The Good Undocumented, Gay Migrant

Because we often lack insight to the culture and context of that time, we tend to miss out on the full effect of his parable. To more completely appreciate Christ’s teachings here, we must first understand the context of his comments, and second, we ought to consider a modern application that similarly pushes boundaries in our own culture.
