UU A Way Of Life has passed a resolution that today, January 6th, will be hence forth known as fifth principle day.
January 6th has now become known in the United States as Treason Day.
Treason Day is the day that the President of the United States, Donald R. Trump, led a group of insurrectionists to our nations capitol building to forcibly overturn the results of a free and fair democratic election.
Property in the capitol building was destroyed. People were physically assaulted and people died.
This activity is in direct violation of Unitarian Universalism's fifth principle which is to affirm and promote the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large.
Thus UU A Way of Life has made a resolution that UUs will acknowledge, celebrate, affirm and promote in intentional, deliberate, and purposeful ways the fifth principle of its living tradition on January sixth. There are many ways to do this and each congregation should actively engage in education, celebration, and advocacy on this day.
Let us uplift and uphold our democratic values so that treasonous values and activities are diminished and eliminated from our civic life.
