Unitarian Universalism: Debunking the Myths

What’s that – some new cult?

No, it’s a spiritual association as old as the United States, and with roots in the 16th Century Protestant Reformation.

I get it—a Christian bunch disguised under another name.

No—those are its roots, but it includes the religious perspectives of all historic faiths* including atheists, agnostics, humanists, and earth-centered religions. 

OK— sounds like a bunch of heretics.

Yes, the literal meaning of heresy is choice, and we offer spiritual choices.

That sounds typically American alright.  

Where did it come from and how does it work?
