    Ivy,

    A word of caution about non-credal religious organizations: Do your due diligence on individual congregations and try to avoid intra-denominational fracases.

    One such fracas is happening right now in the Unitarian-Universalist Association.

    It seems that UU members who were taught all their lives that they have no Original Sin are now being scolded, accused, indicted, and convicted without trial by Critical Race Theorists who say they have the Original Sin of skin color and participation in Systemic Racism.  Professor john McWhorter has written and spoken often on this subject.

    America certainly has work to do on race, but ritual and symbolic acts aren’t the way forward.

    The moment you see or hear of any hints at things like “checking privilege,” “fragility,” “questioning Ally-ship,” or equating reason, logic, and dissent with “White Supremacy,” you’ve got a Jim Jones-style People’s Temple in the making and it’s best to run.

    Be safe and be well in your intellectual explorations.

    No worries that was funny 😂 my current philosophy on religion is really complicated. Don’t have time to write a lengthy post but will do tonight after work 😂
