I can see the path by which they grew out of traditional Christianity, but in their present form, the Unitarian Universalists seem to be an interfaith organization rather than a genuine branch of Christianity. (I'll note that there are Christians who are Unitarian in belief, and Christians who are Universalist in belief -- with apologies to CF's rules! -- but the UU as an organization has moved in an interfaith direction.)

They're friendly neighbors, though. When I'm doing social justice work, I can usually count on the UU churches to be there with us.

On the whole, I like their ethical values, and I like their commitment to intellectual exploration of religion; but for myself, I prefer to stay closer to the Nicene Creed.

Just for clarity, one can hold Universalist beliefs and still use a "Christian" faith label here, it can only be discussed in the Controversial Christian Theology forum, however. One cannot be "unitarian" or "Oneness" and use a Christian label as those fall outside of Nicene Christianity. But that does not mean they are not "Christians", they just are not Nicene or Athanasian in their belief system, so they fall outside of the faith - we have to draw a line somewhere and the Creeds seem like a good place.
