Something, such as a belief or institution, that elicits blind and destructive devotion or to which people are ruthlessly sacrificed.
I like: paradoxes, oxymorons — I dislike: doxa, morons
Obviously, nothing in the ideological nature and organizational power of Unitarian Universalism suggests it might ever become a juggernaut. But how many catchy bog titles are there with a useable ‘u’? Anyway:
Welcome to my blog.
I’m an atheist member of a Unitarian Universalist church, namely Jefferson Unitarian church in Golden, Colorado. What prompted me to start this blog was the June 2008 Pew US Religious Landscape Survey 2008 ( http://religions.pewforum.org/reports )
All that unsubstantiated God belief, inside and outside of UU circles! Time to question it.
My take: the Seven Principles adopted by UUs are a strong foundation for an ethical life. Add a willingness to acknowledge life’s mysteries and you’re ready to lead a fulfilled and meaningful life. From what I can tell: a realistic, and joyful promise that does not depend on belief in a higher being.
