Unitarian Universalist uphold 7 Principles. Our 4th Principle calls on us to pursue a  free and responsible search for truth and meaning. Our 5th Principle asks that we use our right of conscience and the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large. Since English is the language used in the United States, the ability to understand English is essential is we are to pursue the knowledge needed to exercise both our Unitarian Principles and our rights as citizens of the United States.
