Answer preview

I find their beliefs interesting in the way they accommodate inclusivity. Beliefs of different unitarian universalists vary widely, including agnosticism, atheism, pantheism, deism, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, Taoism, humanism, Buddhism, Sikhism, and Neopaganism (Frevert, 2009). As evident from the varying beliefs, unitarian universalism is a liberal denomination that accommodates people with distinctive beliefs, unified by the tradition of great love. Most interestingly, unitary universalists’ association with politics supports liberal transformation such as LGBT movements, civil rights movement, social justice, and the well-known feminist movement.
