Outing Unitarians

Thanks to Nick Welsh, the secret of the Unitarian political machine is out [Angry Poodle Barbecue, “Bark Not, Want Not,” 11/12/09]. Our Unitarian mayors, Sheila Lodge, Harriet Miller, and Marty Blum, have reflected a fundamental Unitarian belief by living their values in community service. And they join a long list of famous political leaders in the U.S. from John Adams to Benjamin Franklin, Daniel Webster, and Adlai Stevenson-Unitarians all. We believe in social responsibility and that all people have an equal claim to life, liberty, and justice be they libertarians, liberals, conservatives, or even newspaper columnists. - Don Bushnell
