Within a very few years of the new religion's forming, Unitarian Universalists' voices were already heard nation-wide advocating for the rights of conscientious objectors to the war in Vietnam as well as for voting and civil rights for people of color in the south. These are some of the qualities and values we want our students to emphasize in their future ministries. The Trinitarian controversy was over a matter of doctrine.

    While these external struggles and changes were going on, the denomination was also ripening its inner spirit and settling its thought. And that leads to the fifth point. After three years he was persuaded by friends to accept a parish in Dorsetshire, where he proved a most faithful and devoted minister to the members of his flock. The Athanasian Creed, however, which they were bound to use in public worship thirteen times a year, kept the clergy constantly in mind of the doctrine of the Trinity, and of their obligation to believe it in its most extreme and objectionable form. This is a great book to open dialogue about the nature of religion, it's development, and evolution. A great hue and cry was raised in the Church, and the matter was brought before the church authorities.

    Humanists need to work together with those who have somewhat different views. Unitarian Universalist congregations, individuals, and the UUA staff continue to work to have these marriages legally sanctioned in every state.

This famous philosopher, although be had read no Socinian books, had imbibed the Socinian spirit from liberal friends among the Remonstrants while he lived in Holland, and had already written epochmaking Letters on Toleration. I am a committed social activist because I feel outrage at injustice and oppression and the pain and suffering they bring upon people.

Feelings have to be tested with reason and especially with the principle that a feeling is a personal thing that does not necessarily have its source in objective reality. At a public dinner of the Unitarian congregation one of the speakers made some remarks upon orthodoxy which were reported in the newspaper and were indignantly resented by the orthodox, who at length determined to retaliate in a way that would not easily be forgotten.
