This day in Unitarian history

Two hundred twenty years ago today the Birmingham, or Priestley Riots began against dissenters, especially proto-Unitarians like scientist and theologian Joseph Priestley. Houses and churches were burned; Priestley left England for America in 1794. (Today, the mid-Atlantic district of the Unitarian Universalist Association is named for him.)
