Is there are ever a happy middle when it comes to politics and religion?
Can you be Christian, Muslim, Hindu and a liberal and be happy?
Yes. My wife is a liberal Christian, and so is her father, and both are very happy. There are hundreds of millions of happy, liberal people in the world's major faiths. And all the world's major faiths have said that war and terrorism in the name of a religion or in the name of God is not the truth of any religion. (Check out the World Parliament of Religions for that one.)
It is the extremists who live in fear and share fear and do not know how to share happiness with others.
I'm a happy Buddhist, Christian, and Jew myself, and I draw on Hinduism, Taoism, agnosticism, and science, as well.
