Freedom is a cherished Unitarian Universalist value. Our tradition has long held that ministers are granted freedom to speak the truth as they see it, from the pulpit and in writing. There is a reciprocal freedom, which is the freedom of the pew. It is neither expected nor assumed that everyone will agree with everything the minister says. This arrangement, though not always comfortable, allows for a free and open exchange of ideas, a process that when done faithfully, can lead us closer to truth.
