Bad day for the UUA

Saw this, “oh crap” was the best I could think.

UUA eliminates Washington advocacy office

The Unitarian Universalist Association announced the layoffs of 15 employees February 26 as the first phase of a reorganization of the UUA’s staff.

The UUA’s Washington Office for Advocacy will be eliminated at the end of the fiscal year in June. Four of the UUA’s departments will be consolidated into two: The Advocacy and Witness staff group and the Identity-Based Ministries staff group will merge, as will the Ministry and Professional Leadership staff group and the Lifespan Faith Development staff group.

No Monday quarterbacking, but there are a couple of red-flags I might mention later. And couple of questions for which I want answers.

  1. I would welcome more information about those red flags. I am happy to see an effort to disentangle our religious and political identities.

    That does not, however, include equal marriage and other family-related matters. Those are properly religious, and it’s the job of the state to protect and serve everyone equally.
