The article talks about a group of Mormons who "strive for social 
justice" and have branded themselves "Mormons for Equality and Social

Social Mormon, indeed. Note that it's not hard for him to say he's 
liberal among Mormons; rather, it's hard for him to acknowledge he's 
Mormon among liberals. In my personal experience, I find this fairly 
typical for those American Latter-day Saints who consider themselves 
politically "liberal".
