The crisis I see is that a majority of our Unitarian Universalist national leaders have become committed to a particular ideology that threatens two aspects of UUism.
If UU leaders are concerned with ridding the religion of the tools of oppression, they should start by rejecting top-down dogma.
We’re in the belief business. And, if I may say so, luxury beliefs are and always have been our market niche.
We are to imagine UU congregations as not only ignorant of their “lack of readiness” but also “resistant” to learning anything about it.
Dogmatism and fanaticism are incompatible with our Unitarian Universalist tradition. Even ideas we think are universally accepted among us must still be open to discussion and challenge.
Individualism, exceptionalism, and mistrust of authority represent a trinity of assets, not errors, and I embrace them, Rev Rick Davis says.
