Title:Unitarianism and universalism in Georgia
Date:2005 Dec. 10

Encyclopedia article about the influence of Unitarian and Universalist movements, which both tolerate diverse religious beliefs and have tended to be active in social justice movements, including those advocating the abolition of slavery and the equality of civil rights. Their affinities as theological liberals (who are willing to interpret the Scriptures in nontraditional ways) and activists paved the way for their merger in 1961. Their numbers are relatively few in the South.
