Is there such a thing as an illegal person?
I don't get what people don't get.
There are no such thing as "illegal" people.
We are all God's children on the planet earth.
One of the original sins was Cain killing Able. God was not pleased.
The first principle of Unitarian Universalism is the belief in the inherent worth and dignity of every person.
The UU principal is being violated in Arizona where people are being discriminated against merely because of the color of their skin and hair and how they look.
Why are Unitarian Universalists debating the acceptability of this? Why would Unitarian Universalists want to enable this kind of thinking and this kind of practice of discrimination?
Just because of money?
There comes a time to take a stand, to stand up for what you stand for.
"Nice" UUs want to debate this. The UU ministers are debating a boycott of Arizona. We also believe in the "free and responsible search for truth and meaning" which, like Fox news, leads some to be "fair and balanced" while injustice is perpetrated on God's children.
The problem with Unitarian Universalists is that they are so inclusive that they will fall for anything.
Our Universalist heritage informs us that all of God's children are loved. All the God's children are worthy. All of God's children are legal.
Will we actually practice what we sometimes preach?
