One of the things that annoys me the most about the popular retelling of the story of the Unitarians and the Universalists is how poor or lowly the Universalists were. But many Universalists did quite well financially. Neither the lie nor the fact is all that compelling; wealth alone isn’t a marker of good or evil.
The New York Times has an “interactive graphic” of the wealthiest men (all men) in American history. I don’t see any Unitarians (I know of) on it, but I do see at least one Universalist. Care to guess whom?
