I am a [insert liberal label here] because I am Muslim

Amy Sullivan over at The Gadflyer has a good post on why liberals shouldn’t bash religious people. Campaign Desk reports on a counter-point. I have to say, I really do agree with Amy. I am a liberal because I am religious. The Qur’an has a strong moral and social justice message; I couldn’t be a liberal, and occasional progressive, without my faith.

Along those same lines, I am an environmentalist because of my faith. Clearly I am not the only one who considers this world a trust from God, to return to Him, or to give to the next generation, in a better state than the one in which we received it. Happy Earth Day.
