Liberal as Conservative

"Times of sweeping change are difficult for religious institutions, since religions, even the most liberal, are conservative at heart, eager to find and hold on to valued patterns. Unitarian Universalism was no exception." David E. Bumbaugh wrote these words in his book *Unitarian Universalism: A Narrative History* concerning the turbulent late 1960s and 1970s.

If liberals are for change, they become more conservative when any of their dreams come true.
