God Without Dogma

“Dear Sir—In your article, you mention the increasingly popular

expression, ‘ceremonial Deism’ (it is a religion and thus, a proper noun).

Deism, or the belief in a creator but not in revealed religion, is one of

the fastest growing belief systems in this country. I hope that Deism is

given more press as many Americans are Deists, and not Christians. As

president of the United Deist Church, I’m honored to have so many people

express satisfaction at finally being able to identify what they believe in.

This is not mere ceremonial Deism. It is an organized group of people and

emerging churches where Deists may finally come together in community and

experience God without dogma.

“Thank you,

“Rev. Keith R. Wright
