Belief vs Sect in Raleigh
A lot of people took an interest in a chart I did a while back on how people understood Unitarian Universalism.
After the discussions in and around the Moral March in Raleigh, I have applied that chart to positions about participating in the event. I suppose that someone could make a similar chart about how each of these positions would express itself in an argument not to go. That is for another day.
The horizontal are the two opposing positions as to whether UUism ought to place a primary emphasis on Unitarian Universalism as a distinct and separate identity. To the Left is the position that stresses "UU Identity" while the Right side downplays that identity.
The vertical is whether UUism has distinct theological beliefs. To the Up is yes, toward the bottom is no.
How this plays out in Raleigh?
