WHEREAS, the branch of the United States federal government most capable of
protecting the constitutional liberties of the citizens and institutions of the
United States is the Congress;
BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1973 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist
Association urges that the societies of the Unitarian Universalist Association
in the United States, through its Department of Education and Social Concern and
its joint Washington Office, undertake an active program of education and
lobbying for the repeal of repressive laws such as the provisions of the Bank
Secrecy Act which permits agents of government to probe into the private
financial affairs of United States citizens, churches, and voluntary
associations without even the formality of a subpoena; establish legislative
committees to press for legislation protecting constitutional freedoms; and work
with other groups toward the same ends.
