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

    Of Bishops and Blamelessness

    Mark Paredes has offended me.  I don’t know Mark Paredes.  Until this weekend, I’d never heard of Mark Paredes, and in the great eternal scheme of things, what Mark Paredes does or says or thinks or writes shouldn’t make a whole lot of difference to me.  But offend me he has, and in the spirit of the Lord’s counsel in Doctrine and Covenants 42:90-91, I offer this brief but public chastening to my offending brother. I’m offended, but not for the reason you think.
