Having crossed the midway point of our Chalica celebration, we arrive at Unitarian Universalism’s Fifth Principle: We affirm and promote the right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large. This seems to be one of the most challenging principles to put into meaningful action. We might love to vote on things, but how do we avoid the “tyranny of the majority”? We might welcome people’s right to think and believe as they will, but what do we do when those beliefs come into conflict with one another? What if this principle isn’t just about voting on things and being free to think what we want, though? What if this principle is ultimately about being citizens of our congregation?
