That's your objection? That's it?You can hold your own statement of belief as a UU. You can hold any creed or dogma that you wish as an individual, as long as you are respectful and not disruptive.If you start pushing your beliefs on other people, or demanding that the church itself impose beliefs on people, then you'd have a problem in the UU church. But maintaining respect of other people's beliefs is not a creed or dogma in and of itself, it's courtesy and common human decency. I'm sorry you feel that simply refraining from trying to define other people's beliefs requires a creed or a dogma. Thinking that's some sort of contradiction seems a pretty lame criticism of the UUs.
Anonymous;Thank you so much for your comments, I appreciate your readership.Also, thank you for proving my point.aDios,Mariano
And that proved your point how? This disproves your point --> "You can hold any creed or dogma that you wish as an individual, as long as you are respectful and not disruptive."
Anon,Thus, the only creed or dogma you are not allowed to hold, under threat of excommunication, is disagreeing with the UU; due to being disrespectful, disruptive or otherwise being exclusivistic (as exclusivistic as they are).Therefore, you cannot violate their creed or dogma.aDios,Mariano
As a whole, we do not have any set "statements of belief". Anyone is free to believe what they will. We only ask that you respect other people's right to do the same.
