I'm glad UncleDave posted the manifesto (and I was clear both that he claimed no authorship and included the email for the author).

I've enjoyed the playfulness of the names.

But at least for myself, I'm going to think more about how to put the spirit of the Unitarian Jihad to work in the place where it'll do me the most good: in my own life.

I am going to work harder at reading or listening to opinions I don't disagree with, trying to see the point the other person's making.

I'm going to try and train myself to see my own rising temper as a sign I need to slow down. If Ted Kennedy and Orrin Hatch can manage to collaborate on legislation, there's some middle ground available.

More difficult for me, I'll try to use genuine humor, rather than sarcasm, as a way of lowering the temperature of disagreement by a degree or two.

I read a review in this morning's Washington Post about Kingdom of Heaven, the new movie about Muslims retaking Jerusalem. The reviewer made a point about the dichotomy between "zealots and cosmopolitans."

At first I was sure I knew who he meant -- as in, which side was the zealots, and which the cosmopolitans.

But, no -- the point was that both sides had zealots, people sure that their beliefs were true not only for them but for everyone. And each side has cosmopolitans, meaning in this case people able to tolerate differences even as important as the right way to live.

One principle for me in this jihad, and one I offer in case it's helpful to you: it's not what you don't know that gets you in trouble; it's the things you know that aren't true.

Speramus meliora,
OtherDave

WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW<
(Hal David/Burt Bacharach)

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No not just for some but for everyone

Lord we don't need another mountain
There are mountains and hillsides
Enough to climb
There are oceans and rivers
Enough to cross. enough to last
'Till the end of time

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No not just for some but for everyone

Lord we don't need another meadow
There are corn fields and wheat fields
Enough to grow
There are sun beams and moon beams
Enough to shine
Oh listen Lord if you want to know

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
It's the only thing that there's just too little of
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
No not just for some but for everyone

What the world needs now is love, sweet love
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
What the world needs now is love, sweet love
What the world needs now...

Ah, Has some brother been trying to use my name in vain?

Brother Honorable Garotte of Debate has it right. It is Katana and not Yatanga.

Yatanga is my twin.

[Rhyming names for twins has long been a custom where I'm from your know, though all customs are subject to change in the new order].

And speaking of order..

Is order what the world needs now?

Wisdom?

Understanding?

Love?

What say all assembled here? What does the world need now?

OK, I gotta be frank (I may as WELL be frank because I don't remember my name anyway). This revolt within the Unitarian Jihad (which itself is pretty revolting) is never gonna get off the ground if we don't know who we are. I think we should use numbers, like in that James Bond movie with SMERSH. I mean, calling out, "Hey, Brother/Sister Smiling Face with the Grinning Chestnut-Coloured Cat on the Velveteen Leash" ain't gonna help if he/she doesn't know who he/she IS. Might think you're calling for someone else whose name is close-sounding to the ear but is really "George". This could truly confuse all of us.

Signed,

Brother Wotthafok Izgo Ingon.

Okay Jihadoky then..if it's ok with you Brother Honorable Garotte of Debate, and Sister Katana of Moderation.
A meeting is what is needed to outline our Goals...maybe..that is if everyone would like that...I'm not saying we SHOULD have a meeting just suggesting it...a meeting would be...nice?
Perhaps we can come up with a Song/Mantra/Hymm then again maybe we can't. either way it's ok.. if nobody wants one..but it too might be...nice..not everyone has to sing it of course?

BK Lick, I call your attention to the fact that, in addition to the fact that the source was listed in the post (admittedly now prominently, and not in my words), I purposely did not sign the post, as I normally do on "almost" every Mudcat post I submit. I did not because I didn't want anyone misled that I was the author.
