Principles of Bahais and the 7 Principles of UU - Similarities

I was very much struck by the similarities:

•the abandonment of all forms of prejudice
•assurance to women of full equality of opportunity with men
•recognition of the unity and relativity of religious truth
•the elimination of extremes of poverty and wealth
•the realization of universal education
•the responsibility of each person to independently search for truth
•the establishment of a global commonwealth of nations
•recognition that true religion is in harmony with reason and the pursuit of scientific knowledge

and

•The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
•Justice, equity, and compassion in human relations;
•Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
•A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
•The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
•The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
•Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.
