And even as the barriers went away these past few years, the UUA maintained that separation, showing solidarity with atheists.

That’s why it’s extremely disappointing that the UUA has now reconciled with the BSA, signing a “Memorandum of Understanding” that will lead to more cooperation between the groups:
