American Religious Identification Survey ARIS 2008 Lumps Unitarian*Universalism In With Scientology, New Age, Spiritualism, Eckankar and Santeria
"The long list of religious classifications supplied by ARIS respondents’ calls for a shorter, more manageable list for most analytical purposes. Therefore, for Table 3 the ARIS respondents have been collated into the following 13 religious groupings of varying sizes:"
Guess where the tiny, declining, fringe religion known as Unitarian*Universalism aka The U*U Movement ends up? Unitarian*Universalism gets lumped into the 11th category out of 13, the 'New Religious Movements and Other Religions' category which also includes Scientology, New Age, Eckankar, Spiritualism, Deism, Wiccanism, Neo-Paganism, Druidism, "Indian Religion" which I presume means Native American religion, Santeria, and Rastafarianism. The 12th category is 'Nones: None, No religion, Humanistic, Ethical Culture, Agnostic, Atheist, Secular.' and the 13th one is 'Refused: Don’t Know.' When, if ever, will U*Uism aka The U*U Movement aka Unitarian*Universalism grow in size to the point that it deserves a ranking of its own? Just how does UUA Presidential candidate Rev. Peter Morales propose to "grow" The U*U Movement from the "tiny, declining, fringe religion" that he acknowledges it is today into "the religion of our time" within *our* time?
