Fighting for the Seven Principles.

Some say the UU Seven Principles are bland generalities
 that could be affirmed by any Rotary club.

They are not.

Many UU's put them up on the wall of their sanctuaries.
  
They recite them as Responsive Readings in worship services.

Other people put the same principles on banners 
and carry them in the streets, 
because they challenge the status quo 
and the powers that be.

  1. So much this. The Principles are genuinely radical if we take them at all seriously. Imagine how different the world would be if we really lived them.
