Peter Bowden and the Rev. Amy Freedman explore Unitarian Universalism including common misconceptions people have about this popular liberal religion.
ON DEMOGRAPHICS: At the time this video was made (2007) Unitarian Universalists were listed among the top 5 religions according to US Census data. This is with all Christian denominations being grouped as one category. Since then, things have shifted. Now there is a HUGE unaffiliated group and other percentages have changed. You can see the most up to date stats summarized at https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religio...
As of Sept 2015 these stats are as follows:
"The U.S. Census does not ask about religion. Various groups have conducted surveys to determine approximate percentages of those affiliated with each religious group. Some surveys ask people to self-identify, while others calculate church memberships. The first table below represents the ranges that have been found." Christianity: (59.9% to 70.6%) Unaffiliated, including atheist or agnostic (15.0% to 37.3%) Judaism (1.2% to 2.2%) Islam (0.6% to 0.9%) Buddhism (0.5% to 0.9%) Hinduism (0.4% to 0.7%) Unitarian Universalism (0.3%) Wicca/Paganism/Druidry (0.1%) Other (~1%)
