What would the neighbors think?

Personally, I’ve always found the Unitarians to be a fair folk.  And they have such lovely tenets:

  • The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
  • Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
  • Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
  • A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
  • The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
  • The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
  • Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
  • Sounds good, right?   Well, since you asked …

    After a spate of visits to their church, a pre-teen friend of mine invited his Baptist buddies to visit his church.

    The answer was yes, until the parents discovered he meant a Unitarian Church.  Turns out they disagree with the Unitarian principles.  Alas, no visit would be permitted.

    All right and proper.  Parents should make informed decisions for their children.

    But Pagans All:  Consider carefully before you exit the broom closet.  If this is what they think of the Unitarians, what would your neighbors make of you?
