A member of the religious left occupies a spot on the left end of the political spectrum (on most issues) and arrives at political conclusions directly or indirectly from theological premises. A member of the religious left may entertain conservative or liberal theological assumptions. Thus, 10% of white evangelicals might be classified as liberals even though they adhere to conservative theological assumptions. Similarly, most African Americans support liberal conclusions on most issues (not on most “social” issues), but subscribe to conservative theology. It is not clear to me that a significant segment of the population adheres to liberal theology and conservative politics, but I assume the combination is logically possible.
As I understand this blog, it is interfaith, leftist (as defined above), and concerned with legal issues.
