What is your suggestion or idea?

As a denomination, Unitarian Universalism has often been criticized for being largely for the highly educated and the elite of the country. This Article II, in my opinion, propels us further in that direction. Although the principles are laudable, the language is less approachable, not more, than our 7 Principles as written.

What is the reason for your amendment idea?

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

I have discussed it with members of my congregation. Of those, 2 are supportive, one with reservations. Approximately 5 members share my concern. By and large, members are disengaged from the article and process, seeing it as a committee which overdid the intent.
