Robin Edgar and UU Christians

In Uncategorized on August 25, 2010 at 12:12 pm

Many of Robin Edgar’s most recent posts have been a lame attempt to “prove” that Unitarian Universalists are hostile to Christianity.  Not just some UUs to some Christians, but across the board.

The lamest have been announcements that this or that unknown individual was looking on Google (Robin Edgar’s favorite search engine, and apparently the only one he considers worth mentioning) about UUs being “unwelcoming” to Christians, or even “dissing” Christians.

Is Robin Edgar yet again trying to gain sympathy from some corner of Unitarian Universalism?  If so, he’s not doing a very good job of it.  We’ve read better appeals for more inclusion of UU Christians from other bloggers and commenters, both Christian and non-Christian.

Instead of gleefully posting such ridiculous items, why doesn’t he give some constructive advice on how some UU congregations might be more inclusive and diverse?  Why, indeed, doesn’t he give any constructive advice at all?

Because, to do so, Robin Edgar would have to put down the axe that he has been grinding so long, and actually come up with a positive vision, instead of trying to trash anybody and everybody who dares to question him, or even simply ignore him.

If Robin Edgar truly wants to defend UU Christians, he could start by living out the basic tenets of Christianity which so many UU Christians abide by.  Love thine enemies.  Turn the other cheek.  Forgive those who have wronged you.  Or, if all else fails, shake the dust from your shoes and walk way.
