Progressive Values

The Center for American Progress, a good democratic think tank, is trying to do some really worthwhile work with this initative for Progressive values and faith.
This type of thinking and cross-polination is so important, and merits our attention and support...

"The Faith and Progressive Policy initiative of the Center for American Progress is a multi-year project that seeks to complement and further the work of the religious community on public policy issues.

The project aims to inform policy debates on issues such as poverty, civil liberties, civil rights, education, the economy, foreign policy, national security, health care, and the environment by promoting the consideration of the key religious tenets of social justice, equality, fairness, and compassion.

The Faith and Progressive Policy project will educate the American public and the media about core values shared by progressive Americans of all faiths while simultaneously defending the separation of church and state and respecting secular society. The initiative will focus on a broad range of concerns that implicate the central teachings of many faiths and are important to all progressive Americans. It will also challenge the notion that public discussion of religion is limited to complex issues such as human reproduction and sexuality."

Jim Wallis gave a keynote address you can find here...

And some worthwhile whitepapers and research are here...
