UUAWOL Index - agreement on basic facts

Percentage of Americans who say that Republicans and Democrats cannot agree on basic facts = 81%

Unitarian Universalists covenant together to affirm and promote a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. This principle is based on the key word "responsible."

Are most Americans irresponsible when it comes to searching for truth when 81% report that they don't believe that Americans can agree on basic facts?

Are Unitarian Univeralists different from most Americans in that they can put their egos aside and view nature honestly and authentically?

While UUs probably would agree that "truth" cannot be imposed and thus the search must be allowed to proceed freely, UUs are free thinkers after all, UUs would probably agree that there is an objective truth which can be responsibly arrived at.

Jesus Before Pilate John 18:37-39
37“Then You are a king!” Pilate said. “You say that I am a king,” Jesus answered. “For this reason I was born and have come into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to My voice.” 38“What is truth?” Pilate asked.And having said this, he went out again to the Jewsand told them, “I find no basis for a charge againstHim. 39But it is your custom that I release to you one prisoner at the Passover. So then, do you want me to release to you the King of the Jews?”…

Because Jesus testified to the Truth and not to the politically correct ideology of the day, they killed him. While on the path of the ego, the truth can get you killed, on the path of the Spirit, Truth will set you free. Which path are you walking? Walk with us at UUAWOL ministries in covenant to affirm and promote our fourth principle, and be sworn to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help us, God, in our covenant.
