Unitarian Universalists for Kerry.

I had been wondering what became of Shava Nerad, whose blog Unpopular Nonfiction went silent back in March just after she announced her intention to write on it regularly. But here she is hosting a new blog, Unitarian Universalists for Kerry.

Although I'm certainly voting for and supporting John Kerry myself, I'd be happy to let readers of Philocrites know of other sites and blogs by Unitarian Universalists active in other campaigns this year.

Update 7.21.04: Like Matthew in the comments below, I'm not comfortable with how overwhelmingly many UUs identify their political and religious preferences — it reminds me of how uncomfortable I felt as a Mormon Democrat in Orem, Utah — so let me also put in a good word here for the conversation we're having over at Coffee Hour: How diverse is Unitarian Universalist political thinking?

So can we now take it that whenever we hear "Reclaim our Democracy" from the pulpit it is just code for "Defeat Bush?" My religion is bigger than that.

But Philo, the irony is that now, with Google advertising, your blog's sidebar is one big reference to the Kerry campaign.

But I don't worry about the lack of "two party Unitarian Universalism" under the current administration. Heck: even some Republican members of my family aren't going to vote for the President (and may not vote for Sen. Kerry).
