Unitarian Universalist Senator Kent Conrad

I did not know that the Senator from North Dakota is a Unitarian Universalist. Why would I? He is, after all, from North Dakota.

But apparently some in ND are using his UU beliefs as a club, all the while insisting they're merely pointing out that he is not a member of a "mainstream" religion, and there's nothing wrong with that, you know. But "he's not one of us" seems to be the point.

That argument doesn't really interest me, but what I do like is the fact that it's got a thread going over at Daily Kos with 352 comments already, including some thoughtful explanations of UU history and belief. Cool.

Reading the comments yielded a link to the Belief-O-Matic.
