Unitarian Universalism Is One Big Fat U*U Codependent System. . .
But don't take *my* word for it U*Us.
Take Rev. Tony Lorenzen's word for it.
As posted to his Sunflower Chalice blog in a brand spanking new blog post entitled 'Unitarian Universalism as One Big Codependent System'.
Here are some choice quotes from it but I recommend reading the whole blog post from start to finish. . .
"I think we need to seriously consider Unitarian Universalism, the Unitarian Universalist Association at large and certainly most of our individual congregations as Codependent family systems. We have addicts – people with aversion addictions to Christianity, certainly, but also to spirituality, and spiritual and religious language. The entire structure of Unitarian Universalism colludes to support this addiction."
"The ministry, the religious educators, the national staff and leadership have for too long been enablers of the aversion addiction. We, the leaders of Unitarian Universalism have created a codependent and culture. We collude with the aversion addicts to keep religious language neutral, leave theology out of our church life, and not demand spiritual discipline or disciplines. If we were to insist on such things, the church family system would blow up in anxiety."
"We have lost much of our ability to deal with this addiction because we have become largely codependent. We are not a place where people holding differing religious views are welcome. If that were true, I wouldn’t be writing this. We are a generally a place where people holding some different religious beliefs except Christianity, which is ironically our roots and history, are welcome."
And here is the comment that I posted in response to something Rev. Tony Lorenzen said that echoes what I have been saying for well over a decade now. . .
"If someone needs to be a community where there is never any mention of God, no one ever prays and religion itself is thought to be for lesser people, let’s be honest and tell them they don’t belong in our congregations."
Amen. . .
BTW I have been saying this for over a decade now Tony.
And then Unitarian Universalists wonder why Unitarian Universalism is "a tiny, declining, fringe religion". . .
