Our news blog, Unitarian Universalists in the Media, picked up a story about the General Assembly from KWMU, a National Public Radio affiliate in St. Louis. Matt Sepic interviewed UUA President William Sinkford on Wednesday. Among other things, Matt Sepic asked him why Unitarian Universalists celebrate “liberalism.”
Sinkford replied: “Unfortunately, the fundamentalist religious right has tried to give liberalism a bad name. And I'm one who believes that the liberal religious tradition is one that needs to be preserved in this country—a tradition which allows for religious freedom at its heart and religious depth at its best.”
That's the only news coverage of the Assembly so far.
