Cool people who, unlike their fundamentalist counterparts, don't need to turn their backs on modern science to keep their faith alive
The famous Jewish philosopher Maimonides once said that if science conflicts with Scripture, then it must be Scripture we have misunderstood.
It's sad these words of wisdom died out so long ago

Since creationists are likely to disagree with the idea that modern science like evolution is sufficiently supported, I'll go ahead and quote the renowned biologist Douglas Futuyma,

"The statement that organisms have descended with modifications from common ancestors—the historical reality of evolution—is not a theory. It is a fact, as fully as the fact of the earth's revolution about the sun."

Theodosius Dobzhansky had this to say in his famous paper "Nothing in Biology Makes Sense Except in the Light of Evolution",

"I am a creationist and an evolutionist. Evolution is God's, or Nature's method of creation. Creation is not an event that happened in 4004 BC; it is a process that began some 10 billion years ago and is still under way."

He also wrote,

"Does the evolutionary doctrine clash with religious faith? It does not. It is a blunder to mistake the Holy Scriptures for elementary textbooks of astronomy, geology, biology, and anthropology. Only if symbols are construed to mean what they are not intended to mean can there arise imaginary, insoluble conflicts. ...the blunder leads to blasphemy: the Creator is accused of systematic deceitfulness."
Liberal/progressive Christians do not believe in a deceiving God. They know that, considering the overwhelming amount of evidence for evolution, to deny it would be equivalent to denying the existence of ancient Rome or Greece.

Get the liberal/progressive christians mug.
Any 21st century leftist, Marxist, Leninist, Stalinist, Trotskyite, Maoist, Castroite, Alinkskyite, "useful idiot", communist, socialist, anarchist, Democrat (American), Green Party sheep, corrupt labor union member, Nazi, environmentalist, anti-American, vociferous homosexual, radical, anti-war activist, pro-choice advocate or anti-Semitic revolutionary who would go out of their way to save tree saplings, incarcerated criminals, pedophiles, cop killers or 6th century-minded Muslim terrorists (as opposed to free market capitalism, liberty, defenseless babies in the womb, religious freedoms, truth, justice and American Exceptionalism).
I couldn't get to work today because indolent limp-wristed liberal progressives were tying up all of the major intersections protesting the wanton slaughter of the Comal Springs Dryopid Beetle.
