We are infidels within the Unitarian Universalist Association. We
place no credence in supernatural beings such as gods, angels, saints,
spirits, messiahs or ghosts. We identify ourselves as Atheists,
Agnostics, Skeptics, Freethinkers and Secular Humanists. We hold
scientific method and scientific evidence as the basis of our beliefs,
always subject to revision as newly discovered evidence warrants.
Our mission as Unitarian Universalist
Infidels is to:
Define and assert our role as Infidels within local Unitarian
Universalist fellowships and the Unitarian Universalist Association,
seeking recognition from others for our rights and duties, just
as we recognize the rights and duties of those with faith in any
2. Provide a forum and support network where we Infidels can express
develop natural, scientifically consistent philosophies without
being excluded or
marginalized by those with faith in any supernatural personage(s).
3. Advocate Infidel philosophies to others, both within and without
4. Advocate reason and secular Humanism as preferable to beliefs
in myths, miracles, magic, superstition and the supernatural,
in order to thwart religious fanaticism that produces acts of
terror, murder and oppression. The peace of the world will be
enhanced as the world becomes more secular.
5. Seed a national, culture changing discussion on religion as
we have had on race, and women and gay rights. Our position being
that the foundation of our democracy is the principle of the separation
of church and state which cuts both ways, not only must government
not meddle in the affairs of religion organizations but religions
must also not meddle in the affairs of government.
