How the religious left is changing America's culture
Note from GLAAD
Take Part features two frequent GLAAD Religion, Faith & Values spokespeople, Jay Michaelson and Joseph Tolton.
After a hotly contested election year with—once again—a particular focus on the “religious right,” many Americans are left with a generalized view of organized spirituality as being dogmatic and intolerant of differences. Though such generalities might be based on some specifics, they exclude an entire movement of clergy and religiously-affiliated laypeople who actively campaign for progressive issues such as marriage equality, gender equality and racial tolerance. In fact, this “religious left” is effectively changing the way the public views some of the most significant social justice issues facing America today.
