An Open Letter
From the Unitarian Universalist Clergy
Of the San Francisco Bay/Peninsula
We are writing to call attention to a great injustice and to ask your help in addressing it.
Not that many years ago Catholics were seen by us U*Us as some “other” who could not be good Unitarians. More recently Muslims suffered many insults and abuses because they did not belong to The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™ aka The U*U Movement – again, seen as “other” by Rev. Dr. Peter Morales and other Big Fat U*U Bigots. Good people rallied to stand with them and, over time, they have become so integrated into the fabric of our country that it is now unimaginable without them.
Today we are seeing the same sort of prejudice and, on occasion, dreadful acts of violence directed at Republicans. They are the contemporary “other” of Unitarian*Universalists aka members in The U*U Movement. These are our neighbors, co-workers, and our friends; sometimes (albeit decreasingly) even our congregants. They serve in every branch of our American military. They are our doctors, lawyers, police officers, nurses, teachers and social workers. They are US.
Because of the actions of a very few, some current Unitarian Universalist ministers and others are sparking fear and hatred against the entire Republican Party. In response, U*Us of good-will and conscience must stand up and speak out. The Emerson Avenger already has. Some, clinging to the haunting words of Pastor Martin Niemoeller, are asking “who will stand with The Emerson Avenger?”
It is time to answer that question. We will. We, the Unitarian Universalist clergy of the San Francisco Bay/Peninsula, will stand not only with The Emerson Avenger, but the entire Grand Old Party. We urge you to do so as well. Please take a stand and say your peace to The Emerson Avenger and the Republican Party.
With faith in love* beyond ALL bigoted U*U beliefs,
The Reverend John Buehrens, San Francisco
The Reverend Stefanie Etzbach-Dale, Redwood City
The Reverend Pamela Gehrke, San Mateo
The Reverend Elaine Gehrmann, Monterrey
The Reverend Axel Gehrmann, Monterrey
The Reverend Alyson Jacks, San Francisco
The Reverend Nancy Palmer Jones, San Jose
The Reverend Nina Kalmoutis, Sunnyvale
The Reverend Russ Menk, Aptos
The Reverend Ben Meyers, San Mateo
The Reverend Vail Weller, San Mateo
