2 Unitarian’s Linked To Political Swearing In

In the last 24 hours I’ve learned to interesting stories connecting Unitarians to the swearing in of MA Governor-elect Patrick Deval and MN Representative-elect Keith Ellison.  Deval will use a Bible given to Unitarian John Quincy Adams by the client-slaves he represented in the famous Amistad trials.  Ellison, the first Muslim representative in America, will conduct a private swearing in ceremony with a Qur’an of Unitarian Thomas Jefferson.  Our ancestry of multiculturalism and pluralism are alive and well!

  1. Were any of those Amistad slaves en route to Thomas Jefferson? 😉
