A new slogan

So, I've been reading a bit of UU history as I wasn't raised UU. And somehow I had totally missed that Joseph Preistly discovered oxygen in his spare time.

He discovered oxygen. Seriously, how cool is that? I mean, Muslims discovered zero. The Christians discovered the Cartesian coordinate system, but WE discovered oxygen.

Screw this "uncommon denomination" crap. We need bumperstickers that read: "Unitarian Universalists: We discovered Oxygen. As a hobby."

That's what I'm talkin' about.

Actually, what we need to do is claim a patent. Since a Unitarian discovered oxygen, I think we should be paid a licensing fee for every breath taken on the planet. I'm having a very un-religious daydream about whom we might withhold our product from. . .
