A man-made disaster is occurring in Flint, Michigan. The people of that city are being lead poisoned because of a decision made to switch where Flint got its water from. Because of that decision, the people of Flint have to get drinking water in a catch-as-catch-can way.
I criticize UUA public statements quite often. I won’t do that here. No…I am going to be much more critical of UUA action.
If there is anything that a religious people who are named after two Christian theologies should be doing it’s using some of its money to get fresh water to the people of Flint. The UUA should be calling out other religious groups to get them to use some of their money to get fresh water to the people of Flint. The UUA and other religious groups should be calling for a coordinated national response to get the people of Flint fresh water.
God is calling us, people. Time to answer that call.
Flint is being lead poisoned. What sayeth the UUA?
