Rev. Ellen Cooper-Davis Viciously Kicks UUA President Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales And UUA Moderator Jim "See NO Evil" Key In Their Big Fat U*U Balls. . .
"By far, the most damaging misrepresentation of Unitarian Universalism is one that is perpetuated both from outside our U*U faith, as well as from some of our own people like UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales & UUA Moderator Jim Key to name but two such U*Us.
It is said that we are allowed to believe anything we want.
Not so, my friends.
Unitarian Universalism, as a liberal religion, sits in a dynamic tension between our historical roots and traditions, and the freshness and innovation of ongoing revelation. That means we are neither free to completely divorce ourselves from our history, but nor are we to ignore new insights afforded by science, experience or the wisdom of other peoples and traditions. As our very close cousins, the United Church of Christ puts it so eloquently: God is still speaking.
Because of that dynamic tension, and because of our insistence that reason be applied to faith as it is to other things in the world, we are not free to simply make up our own mythology and call it truth. Also, our responsibilities toward justice-making make it impossible to believe certain things."
