Quote of the day - UUs small tent and a dying denomination

 Unitarian Universalism is not a big tent but extremely small and generates resentment and animosity from those it treats with contempt and disdain. This situation has existed for decades because of the lack of leadership which has been obsequious to mob rule. This is not democracy but a form of nihilistic narcissism which promotes the idea that there is no truth and everyone’s opinion is as good as everyone else’s opinion as long as it agrees with mine. This level of group consciousness is egocentric and sociocentric and fails to evolve to a more world centric and integral understanding. 

David Markham, Book Notes - The Gadfly Papers by Todd Eklof

Editor's note: The idea that there is no truth and the lack of a meta narrative which provides a frame of reference for understanding leaves Unitarian Universalism empty, ambiguous, and with no substance. There is no theology but a nihilism perpetuated with psychobabble that leaves a seeker with no frame of reference within which to guide the seeker's spiritual search. Where are the contemporary UU theologians and thought leaders?
