On June 18, 2005 the Star-Telegram reported, "The Unitarian Universalist Association -- a remarkably inclusive American denomination that embraces Christians, Buddhists, Humanists, Wiccans, atheists and theists -- will invade the Bible Belt next week. Some 4,000 delegates to the national general assembly in Fort Worth Thursday through June 27 will champion gay rights and stage a downtown rally against the death penalty. Also, they will discuss a possibly controversial report, 'Engaging Our Theological Diversity,' citing ways to embrace a 'language of reverence,' whether referring to God or spirit or an ultimate meaning. The goal is to enrich spirituality and better define Unitarian Universalists to the rest of the world."
