My attention was drawn yesterday to a site called Black Metal Universalism, the only obvious purpose of which is the sale of t-shirts emblazoned with “All Souls” in a design that is a bit too daring for this 45-year-old to wear non-ironically.
So is it “our Universalism” or not? There are certainly independent Universalists, but most (any?) aren’t so culturally edgy and the success of the Universalist Christian t-shirts at the UU Christian Fellowship table at General Assembly suggests this comes from within “the family”.
I looked up the domain registration. The site was registered the day before yesterday, but no name! Naughty, naughty.
But all is forgiven. I approve of this kind of material culture; it helps reinforce a sense of belonging without depending on real estate….
