Separation of Church and State

General Resolution

BE IT RESOLVED: That the Unitarian Universalist Association at its 1963 General Assembly, reaffirms its support of religious freedom based on the principle of separation of church and state and urges its members to:
  1. Uphold the principle of non-sectarian public education;
  2. Oppose Bible readings and religious observances in the public schools;
  3. Oppose released time for religious education;
  4. Refrain, if possible, from holding religious services or classes on public property;
  5. Refrain from use of public school property for such purposes without payment of a fair rental;
  6. Oppose shared time in public schools;
  7. Pay a full and fair market price for church building sites in publicly subsidized urban renewal areas and refuse to locate where a city, a state, or a federal subsidy is either implicit or explicit.
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That Unitarians and Universalists be requested to give individual and collective study to the problem of inequities and abuses in tax laws as they relate to religious groups.
