Finally... a Conservative Unitarian Universalist Member Blogging As You Asked! After so many years of singing around the campfire, the call has been answered!
Actually I have heard* that Bill Maher is seriously considering becoming a "Humanist" U*U minister Joel. Maybe he will run for UUA President one day. It seems that he may not be the only outspoken Atheist Supremacist "Humanist" to ever do so. . .To be fair I was pleasantly surprised to see one prominent U*U minister, Rev. Debra Haffner, quite eloquently express her disappointment at what she terms the "religophobia" in Bill Maher's 'Religulous' on her Sexuality and Religion: What's the Connection? blog after seeing it recently. I may even commend her for doing so on the Emerson Avenger blog. Of course I don't know quite what she was expecting from 'Religulous' other than overt ridicule of religious people of various kinds. Now if only she and other U*U ministers could be as outspoken about the 'religophobia' that is practiced by the Atheist Supremacist faction of "Humanist" U*Us throughout the U*U World and makes too many U*U "Welcoming . . .*Actually I haven't *really* heard that Bill Maher plans to become a "Humanist" U*U minister. I'm just being a tad sarcastic. I wouldn't want anyone to think that I was tricking them.
Congregations anything but welcoming to God believing people in general and Christians in particular.
Shrug. I haven't written about it because I haven't seen it. I don't want to see it because it looks stupid. My impression, though, is that it is supposed to be a religious version of "Borat," so yeah, a bunch of easy targets tricked into participating into a movie where they are made fun of. CC
Come to think of it. . . Rev. Ray Drennan, former President of the Unitarian Church of Montreal Frank Greene, Val Bourdon, and various other atheist "Humanist" U*Us, including Rev. Diane Rollert AFAIAC, lied and cheated to create the effect they wanted. N'est-ce pas Joel?
I don't know... it's not a lie if you actually believe it. But believing it doesn't make it right. It's quite possible to be a sincere fool.
