Article II Language

The Article II Study Commission released its final version on October 31, 2023 of Article II language. A two-thirds vote of congregational delegates at the 2024 General Assembly will be required for adoption. You can download a PDF version.

Quick Review of Changes

  • Elimination of the Seven Principles
  • Removal of  the Six Sources
  • Abandonment of our denomination’s commitment to individual freedom of belief
  • Dropping from the Purpose of the Association “to serve the needs of member congregations”

Save the 7 Principles Mailing List

The Save the 7 Principles team has established a mailing list so UUs can be informed and express interest in other actions they may wish to take to defeat the proposed language.

If you wish to become involved in this crucial vote next year, please sign up for the Save the 7 Principles mailing list.

The Save the 7 Principles mailing list will send you occasional emails so you can be informed and, hopefully, actively engage in saving the soul of Unitarian Universalism. The Fifth Principle Project encourages its members to add their names to the Save the 7 Principles mailing list.

Seems quite apropos that the UUA released the final version of the Article II re-write on Halloween. It’s definitely bloodcurdling, if you value reason, logic, free thought, individualism, and democracy! I’m sure they totally did not time it that way on purpose…

The values of Equity and Justice are highly related, as true Justice encompasses and supersedes Equity. But we’ll never get there with faith alone and have to reply on our human ability to reason. Has the Article II committee discussed replacing Equity with Reason?
