Give Me Liberty and Give Me Death

Americans have made an idol of liberty. The pandemic has revealed how the American notion of “liberty” has become a death cult; a cult of people whose fealty to liberty threatens their own lives and others. As Unitarian Universalists who prize our freedoms, we are not unsusceptible to the excesses of liberty, but our faith tradition and others’ point us toward an understanding of freedom that embraces liberty and responsibility.
