We all know that the Unitarians and Universalists came together in 1961. But it wasn’t always clear to the people designing the union whether it could be accomplished or not. In fact, there were factions of Unitarians and Universalists who opposed merger, and managed to get the bar set quite high. A majority vote was required on the part of the churches of the two denominations.
What percentage of each denomination had to vote “yes” for the union to be accomplished? If you think you know or want to take a guess, please post it here in the comments.
Extra bonus question: how many did in fact vote “yes”?
