The End of an Era: The Dismantling of Unitarian Universalism by the Illiberal Left

Liberal religion in North America has struggled to thrive, and sometimes just to survive, since its arrival more than 200 years ago. Today, liberal religion, as we know it, manifested in the Unitarian Universalists Association and its member congregations, is going the way of the Dodo.
