In a blog post titled 'The missing tradition
' on his 'Boy In The Bands' blog U*U minister Rev. Scott Wells suggests that "the real missing tradition within Unitarian Universalism today is not Universalist Christianity, but “classic” Unitarian theism." According to Rev. Wells "I know it was around 25 years ago, when I started with “the Unitarians.”" Apparently the kind of Unitarianism that, "uses the Bible, knows Jesus (if not vitally or even immediately) as inspiration or friend and tries to cultivate a religion based on comprehension: in the sense of cultivating the best of current research, public participation and internationalist interests" is nowhere to be found in the U*U World if one is to believe Rev. Scott Wells. He claims that, "I’ve seen no vital signs in the UU press or blogosphere." And he asks, "Is it a victim of Postmodernism, or perhaps just of changing tastes?" Considering that Rev. Scott Wells makes reference to "gratuitous God bashing" in his blog post I am surprised that he does not consider the possibility that the "“classic” Unitarian theism" he refers to was not the victim of the "gratuitous God bashing" that so many "Humanist" U*Us quite regularly engage in in too many U*U "churches". . .
Here is the comment that I just attempted to leave on Rev. Scott Wells' censored 'Boy In The Bands' blog -
I expect that the classical Unitarians got tired of the gratuitous God-bashing that goes on in rather too many U*U "churches" and left Scott. God bashing and other forms of anti-religious intolerance and bigotry that you turned a contemptuous blind eye to when I protested against it at the Quebec City UUA GA in 2002. N'est-ce pas Scott? Be assured that you rank very highly on the list of outrageous U*U hypocrites I know.
More later. . .
