Kacey23:  I’m not sure it will work for you since you are a southern baptist, but you can try it out! UU churches are very welcoming.

it says believe what you want we support you” is a pretty good laymen’s summary of the UU creed, as BWLE posted. So if you want to believe that your D-O-G- is G-O-D then go for it in the UU church! haha, sort of.

What I’m going to say about the UU church is my own experience, no one needs to think they would have the same experience. And I am qualified to speak about it because I was raised 4th generation UU, but this is of course only my opinion based on my own experiences.

I find, in general, the liberal humanist community to be too often insufferably superior in attitude. UU services often have speakers about political topics or human social issues, more so than spiritual. Anyone who doesn’t participate in Correct Think won’t be as welcome as they may like you to believe.

In other words you had better be liberal in thought, word, and deed. I can’t see how a  traditional Baptist who takes that foundation seriously would like UU church.

So that’s my 2 cents. I’m not a believer and so, don’t feel a need to find a spiritual community, but if I did, the UU’s would not be it. I am a little bit attracted to Quakerism. I also like the idea of Episcopals in an old, huge stone church with ability to drink wine and vote Republican and not be shunned! But I’m not a believer so that’s a real stumbing block to church attendance, haha.

Kacey23:  From my understanding, unitarian is basically “whatever makes you happy.”  And their sermons aren’t religious, more like life lessons.

If you want a close relationship with God and a community of Christians to help with that, it’s proabably not a great place.

But, then again, you could (probably) show up in the morning with your BF and not get the side eye 😉

Kacey23:  I’m  pretty sure that you could find that in any denomination. Haha. But from what I understand unitarianism is pretty much the exact opposite of Baptist when it comes to Christian denominations.
