Online dating unitarian universalist dating my friends daughter
The UUPA “encourages spiritual wholeness regarding polyamory,” including the right of polyamorous people to have their unions blessed by a minister.
UUA headquarters says it has no official position on polyamory.
One would think, though, that Unitarian Universalists would be relatively immune from internal controversies over doctrine, morality, or practice.
After all, Unitarians can believe anything, everything, or nothing at all.
For one thing, poly activists are seen as undermining the fight for same-sex marriage. The UUPA has received its share of attention over the years – a PBS interview, a San Francisco Chronicle article – but mostly it has caused anguish and dissent among Unitarians.
The UUA has officially supported same-sex marriage, the spokeswoman says, “since 1979, with tons of resolutions from the general assembly.” . In 2007, a Unitarian congregation in Chestertown, Md., heard a sermon by a poly activist named Kenneth Haslam, arguing that polyamory is the next frontier in the fight for sexual and marriage freedom.
But there is contention among Unitarians over the definition of marriage and whether the denomination should support the legalization of and perform weddings for those who have previously been denied that right.
Not gay marriage–Unitarians have signed on to that years ago–but polyamory.
“Official positions are established at general assembly and never has this issue been brought to general assembly,” a spokeswoman says.But as the issue of same-sex marriage heads to the Supreme Court, many committed Unitarians think the denomination should have a position, which is that polyamory activists should just sit down and be quiet.
