As Unitarian Universalists, it’s not hard to recognize that we predominantly lean to the political left. We self-define as a “liberal religion.”
This tendency can sometimes draw us away from bedrock UU principles like tolerance and inclusion. When we’re far removed from orthodox religious thinking, we can find ourselves easily gravitating toward a kind of insensitivity, however inadvertent, to what others hold sacred.
How then, are we called to regard those we might consider to be our ideological enemies?
