One of the great things about Unitarian Universalists is the freedom we enjoy in choosing our own beliefs.  Having emerged in the religious world as people who were persecuted for not automatically aligning with the orthodoxy, we've assumed a certain pride in bucking the religious trends.  And, although a great many UUs may not use the religious descriptor, "Christian" to describe themselves, there is a certain glee ALL UUs find in Easter that comes from watching the minister attempt the impossible task of explaining Easter to a crowded room of people who don't agree.  But the conundrum of Easter is larger than one minister, or all UUs - even larger than Christianity.
