One thing you have noticed is these churches clinging to their false rituals, have to constantly jazz them up to get people in the door. We have seen Rave Masses, U2 Eucharists, etc, now add the CAT IN THE HAT. Dr Seuss, was not a Christian even the UUs at various times have tried to claim him for themselves.
"The one that's giving me fits today is Dr. Seuss, Theodor Geisel. UU minister Douglas Taylor starts a sermon "Theodore Geisel was a Unitarian Universalist author better known around the world as Dr. Seuss." But he doesn't say how he came to that conclusion. Now, of course, the Dr. Seuss books have all kinds of great UU ideas in them. A few biographical details point to him not being a church-goer: He was married by a justice of the peace. He was cremated without a funeral. I'm getting a humanist/agnostic vibe, which might fit with a CLF-type UU who never clicked with a UU congregation. Or maybe he just didn't connect with any religion at all, UU or otherwise. Anybody out there have a lead on this? "
Some of the liturgy commenters who believe in the Eucharist, cry Blasphemy but since the Eucharist itself is blasphemy against God, the surrounding silliness is just more icing on the rotten cake. The two young men dressed as "Things", look embarrassed more then anything else. By the way this was not the only church that has done this.
