i’d say it differently, but the end is the same.
so if we humanists, freethinkers, atheists & agnostics are faith-less,
rejecting (or logically barred from) any place in the larger “faith community”, and reject any patronistic language like ‘redemption’,
– where can we find that “culture of encounter” that Francis promotes?
and if it’s there, – what would be different from the current exchange of taunts that would make a faithless+faith encounter worth hanging around for?
and especially being UU & faithless, – when do we start acting up & challenging UUAism’s untruthful inclusion of UUism in ‘the community of faith’? or do we not get a say in how our paid leaders represent the payers?
