Zarcus, I only met him twice when he was in California. One time he gave a talk at the CFI. Some young people who weren’t too familiar with humanism asked some questions, and Kurtz was, in my opinion, rather nasty in his response. I agree that the questions weren’t too sophisticated, but the questioners didn’t need to be put down as harshly as he did. I stood and listened to him in a group of his acolytes after the talk and he came across as supercilious. Now, he may have been having a bad day or was suffering from jetlag, but he didn’t come across too well to me.
Mriana, I’m sorry. I went back and re-read your post. I should have seen that you were talking about 2000, not III, when you said no ministers signed the document. While there are still UUs that are humanists, the younger ministers being recruited are of the Universalist ilk.
