SO WE ARE A CHURCH

In the summer of 1983 we made an important breakthrough when we won the final case with the City of Modesto. In 1974 we won a case with the Federal Government. Then we won a case with the State of California shortly thereafter.

So we must really be a church, because by now the federal judges have said we are, the county judges have said we are, the state has said we are ... Do you know of any other church that has had to go through all the courts, from the lowest court to the Supreme Court, to prove that it is a church? But it's good, because the newspapers are no longer writing negative stories about us.

Now, most articles are positive. Like people all over the county, the media has begun to recognize the Universal Life Church as a major force in man's striving for individual and spiritual freedom. All over the world people are awakening, and as they wake up they realize that the earth belongs to them, to all people. Man is claiming his kingdom. You are the lights and you must light this dark planet.
