UUBahai.com is a blog about Unitarian Universalism and the Bahai faith. It is a place for liberal, open-minded religious thought and dialogue — among Unitarian Bahais, UUs interested in Bahaism, Bahais interested in Unitarian Universalism, and anyone who supports or wishes to learn about the interfaith movement in general and the UU and Bahai traditions specifically.
Bahaism and Unitarian Universalism are two of the most significant progressive new religious movements of modern times. The Bahai faith emerged from Islam in the Middle East, and the Unitarian and Universalist churches grew out of Christianity in North America, during the 1800s and early 1900s. Both share a world-embracing vision and a focus on human rights, social justice and equality, democracy, international peace, and mutual respect and reconciliation among people of different races and religions.
The Bahai religion is presented in this blog from a Unitarian Bahai perspective. Unitarian Bahaism is an interpretation of the Bahai faith that more fully harmonizes with Unitarian Universalist principles and values, largely existing within UU churches, independent of the relatively conservative “Haifan” (Haifa, Israel based) Baha’i Faith organization to which most Bahais in the world belong. UUBahai.com supports the Unitarian Bahai Association and the Unitarian Universalist Association, but is not an official website of either organization. Several individual Unitarian Bahais are the authors and editors of this blog.
Topics covered here are wide ranging, and may include spiritual issues, social issues, cultural issues, organizational issues, and other subjects relevant to Bahais and Unitarian Universalists.
Tasteful and respectful comments are welcome and will be approved — even by people expressing disagreement. Comments that contain personal attacks, slander, gross factual inaccuracies, cursing, condemnation of people with different religious views, or other inappropriate content may be rejected at the sole discretion of the editors.
