Progressive Muslim Union

The Progressive Muslim Union is a new organization that promotes a progressive interpretation of Islam and what it means to be a Muslim, affirming that "a Muslim is anyone who identifies herself or himself as 'Muslim,' including those whose identification is based on social commitments and cultural heritage" (emphasis added, "PMU Statement of Principles"). A very worthy cause and timely undertaking -- good for Muslims and good for leftists.
