"Weird Al" Yankovic is an American singer and probably one of the best musical artists of modern times, and therefore one of the most liberal. He is also Vegetarian so there's some proof. Yankovic is a parody artist and probably the most famous in the genre. He asks artists before he makes his parodies so the industry doesn't shoot him like they did 2Pac. He has also received tons of praise from Urban Dictionary definitions, which is really quite something. According to Patheos [1] and Wikipedia, "Weird Al" identifies at a Christian, although not the "Bible Thumper"-type.
