Liberation theology is a power set of tools and approaches within any religion. It refers to internal reform of a religious tradition in order to consciously align the religious beliefs and practices toward the goal of stopping oppression, protecting the vulnerable, and advancing a progressive political agenda.
In other words: liberation theology is just so wonderful because it makes religion subservient to the State!
Let's ignore the fact that, as far as every major monotheistic religion (and most pantheistic religions) are concerned, the idea that God exists to serve man's agenda is... pretty out there. Heretical, even. Once you get past that quibbling little objection, what could go wrong? I mean, I'm sure that nobody would ever think about streamlining things by cutting out religion entirely and just letting the State take the place of God.
Say... didn't we have a bit of a kerfluffle about this whole thing a while back?
Yeah... I'm just sayin'.
