Joining the Unitarians

Jason Pitzl-Waters, a pagan living in the Midwest, explains why he's joining his local Unitarian Universalist congregation:

Involvement with the UUs will allow me to work with a large religious institution without me having to compromise my own personal gnosis or theology. I can be a Pagan and be a UU. While I respect many other faiths with commitments to social justice and peace I never want to be asked to deny my gods or repent my dealings with them in order to join. This doesn't mean I don't have my criticisms of the church. I in fact have many. But I feel I can do good work here and I feel I can do that work without sublimating my spirit in the process.
