Business Resolution

WHEREAS, currently there are efforts being made to insert the creation story of Genesis into public school science textbooks; and

WHEREAS, such action would be in direct contradiction with the separation of church and state;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED: That the 1977 General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association goes on record as opposing such efforts.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That individual societies are urged to immediately provide petitions on the subject to be signed by members and sent to their legislators; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED: That this resolution be forwarded to the textbook selection committee of each state department of education by the Department of Ministerial and Congregational Services.
