if you don’t know what liberation theology is, just do a google search for it and you’ll see lots of results. basically, for a simple brief cmeaning, it is a school of theology, especially prevalent in the roman catholic church in latin america, that finds in the gospel a call to free people from political, social, and material oppression.
