The Radical Religious Right

Business Resolution

WHEREAS, the Radical Religious Right is a threat to the values of a free church and free society, values which the Universalist and Unitarian Churches have long struggled to maintain; and

WHEREAS, in response to this threat, religious and secular groups have begun to work together to re-assert the above values, notably through People for the American Way, the National Council of Churches, Americans for Common Sense, and the Interfaith Communications Commission; and

WHEREAS, as Universalists and Unitarians, we have a stake in the social and political consequences of the issues raised concerning minority rights, women's rights, violence against women and minorities, separation of church and state, priority of welfare over rearmament, and the development of world community through peaceful means;

BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1981 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association encourages the Association, districts, local societies, and individuals to join continental, regional, and local coalitions dedicated to action in the defense of religious and individual liberty.
