UUI Mission Statement

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:

1. 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 supernatural personage(s).

2. Provide a forum and support network where we Infidels can express and
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 Unitarianism/Universalism.

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.
