OK, yesterday’s question turned out to be more difficult than anticipated, which might reveal something interesting about how denominational history is taught (or not taught) in congregations. For today’s question, we continue the theme of looking at the presidents of the Unitarian-Universalist Association. As you know, Unitarian-Universalism resulted from the combination of the American Unitarian Association and the Universalist Church of America. Since there have been seven presidents of the UUA so far, logically they can’t have been distributed evenly between those with a Unitarian and those with a Universalist background.
Which denominational background has been more represented by presidents of the UUA: Unitarian or Universalist?
Extra bonus question: can you guess how many have been from one background and how many from the other? No need to actually match names and affiliations, it’s enough for our purposes just to guess numbers. Feel free to make wild guesses here, after all there’s only a limited number of possible answers for this one.
