    I have to be honest, I was disappointed. Gibbons talked personally about how he became a Humanist; fine. But I thought, in terms of UUA being helpful, he appeared to not really have any interest. I don't think the UUA's positions are always enlightened, but I think they should be willing to say "Humanists have a valid outlook which should be considered and respected. That they important to a world that is ethical and progressive and cares about our future."

    I do think the UUA is willing to say that. Check out this page on their website: http://www.uua.org/beliefs/welcome/humanism/index.shtml Gibbons may not have addressed that in his talk perfectly, perhaps because he made assumptions about where his audience was coming from. I think I understand better, after hearing him speak, why "cradle Humanist UUs" are often the ones who appreciate the more touchy-feely side of UUism.
