Muslims for Progressive Values; Catholics for Equality
Muslims for Progressive Values is spreading an egalitarian,
inclusive vision of Islam with women and gays in leadership positions. It will
hold its sixth annual retreat, with the
theme “A Theology of Mercy,” in New York City in July. Spreading the progressive gospel in another faith, Catholics for Equality,
founded in 2010, is mobilizing Catholics to lobby for LGBT rights, which it
calls part of “the rich tradition of Catholic social justice teachings.”
