What is your suggestion or idea?

Please do not capitalize ““love”” all over the document.

What is the reason for your amendment idea?

It deifies the word…

Have you discussed this idea with your congregation or other UUs?


I agree. It seems to sneak religion in through the backdoor.

I agree. There does not seem to be a clear reason why there is a capital L in some places, and not others. If Love, with a capital L is meant to be a mystery, or if its meant to be similar to God, then that is imposing a particular belief / intention about love, which, in my opinion, is creedal.
