  •  Hippies don't have to have long hair and wear (5+ / 0-)

    love beads or burn their bras. Hippies question the status quo and imagine things as they should be and aren't scared to seem out of step with "proper" society.

    Stanley Ann Dunham married African and Indonesian gentlemen and worked in what were considered non-traditional fields, studying anthropology and helping better the lot of poor, foreign women. From all accounts she was an atheist who married Muslims. Barack's grandmother appeared to be a Unitarian, perhaps the most liberal sect of Christianity. They all uprooted themselves and moved to Hawaii.

    The Dunhams may not have looked like hippies but they lived the ideals of hippies.

      philos but many (me included) would quibble with your description of them as a "sect of christianity" as they are not.  To be a christian you have to believe that JC is the lord and savior.  UU's do not hence not christians.  Does their faith incorporate judao-christian thought?  yes, but it incorporates from many of the worlds beliefs.
