Hello & Welcome -

Jesus Is A Liberal! Jesus was a Liberal because He brought a radically Liberal theology to the Orthodox believers of his time. Jesus IS a Liberal even today because now more than ever, His principals align with the very core of Liberal Beliefs. Not a Democrat, certainly not a Republican, but a Liberal.

Our Mission is to promote our belief and understanding that Jesus IS a Liberal, and to their very core His teachings outline a Liberal, Progressive, Tolerant, Loving, open minded, holistic, and sustainable vision for our World.We are starting this Blog as a natural off-shoot to our website:
http://www.jesusisaliberal.org/

We get asked: Why do we say that Jesus was and is a "Liberal" and why did we create that website and this website and Blog? Because we believe the historical, Biblically documented teachings of Jesus Christ clearly show that Jesus is a Liberal. His philosophy, based in compassion, equality, inclusion, forgiveness, tolerance, peace and - most importantly - love, is 100% Liberal.

The three of us the built and maintain
http://www.jesusisaliberal.org/, and it is our hope that this site continue to reflect the views of over 150 million Liberal, Progressive, Tolerant and Independent thinking Christians, Catholics, and others of all spiritual paths, religions and traditions in the USA and Canada.

Fundamentally ;-) what Jesus said in the Bible is far more liberal than what is usually quoted on TV evangelists, the average protestant pulpit, and certainly far more so than the politically infused radically conservative new Pope.

This blog will contain submissions from us three and several of our friends - so you may notice that the blog will probably lack inherent consistency.

You also can find news and professional articles - written by popular spiritual writers and friends alike at
www.JesusIsALiberal.org/articles.html

While not Biblical scholars, our common sense understanding of His lessons as philosophically and politically Liberal is founded upon Jesus' own words (see quotes below), modern interpretations of Liberation Theology, and in the positive, loving and compassionate application of His teachings - from the many early Saints to Mother Theresa and Liberation Theology.

Certainly, if you see Him in the context ofhis day and the society he lived in, Jesus brought a radically Liberal theology to the Orthodox believers of his time.Jesus was and IS a Liberal even today because now more than ever, His principals align with the very core of Liberal Beliefs.

If you believe like we do - and you want to express your beliefs, you can get a Jesus Is A Liberal t-shirt, bumper sticker or fridge magnet at

We look forward to reading your comments - either here on this Blog or on our website contact & comment page @

Peace -

Paul
