A Religious Liberal Blog

This site hopefully can provide some vehicle by which I can comment, complain, and once in a while praise the state of religion in this country and around the world from a liberal protestant perspective.

UU Church Attacked

"An unemployed man accused of opening fire with a shotgun and killing two people at a Unitarian church apparently targeted the congregation out of hatred for its liberal social policies, police said."

The Unitarian Universalist Association has set up a condolences website. And as this story has unfolded, Philocrites has been covering it. This story like too many others suggests the danger churches and individuals face for working for justice.

I'm greiving so deeply with this church, and am reminded of the dangers we face by simply living our faith in the way we believe to be authentic. This is also a wake-up call to how important it us for us in the Christian church to no longer remain silent... To stand up in solidarity with the UUs who have so courageously fought for GLBT inclusion and social justice.
