"Why, in our quest to make our youth stronger, do we feel we have to do it by denigrating other groups?"
You might want to run that question by UUA President Rev. Peter Morales and other U*U clergy who are guilty of denigrating other groups in their own misguided efforts to booster the "tiny, declining, fringe religion" known as Unitarian Universalism. . .
"UU's have been called everything from godless devils to lazy thinkers who are unwilling to take specific stands on god and other matters of theology. I could go on about how neither of those statements is true, but that's not necessary nor appropriate in this space."
Well a certain percentage of UUs are quite devout atheists, indeed *some* UUs are rather dogmatic "fundamentalist atheists" who have no qualms whatsoever about taking the stand from their Wayward Pulpit to the effect that God is "a non-existent being" and that belief in God "seems primitive". Sadly rather too many UUs are lazy thinkers, indeed I have personally witnessed a great deal of lazy thinking amongst UUs including UU clergy and top level UUA leaders. . .
