How should we deal with the undertone of politically conservative comments at church? Should we speak up or should we avoid confrontation? If we invite liberal friends to church, should we apologize for comments that can come across as offensive?
"The LDS Left," inspired by a Facebook group of the same name, is a joint project by a group of members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who find themselves leaning towards various degrees of the left side of the political spectrum, as well as members of the Church who regard themselves as being more liberally-minded or unorthodox in their views and practicing of the faith. This blog is a branch of our quarterly newsletter publication and will feature the main articles shortly after the release of each issue.
