Betty White Religion

Just in case you wonder about Betty White's religion, White is Christian.  

To take things from the very beginning, White, 91, was born in Oak Park, Illinois, to two Christian parents. White is said to be a practicing member of the Unity Church which is a Christian based faith.

In detail, "Unity", known informally as "Unity Church", is a spiritual philosophical movement within the wider "New Thought" movement and is best known to many through its "Daily Word" devotional publication. It describes itself as a "positive, practical Christianity" which "teaches the effective daily application of the principles of Truth taught and exemplified by Jesus Christ" and promotes "a way of life that leads to health, prosperity, happiness, and peace of mind."

Unity describes itself as having no particular creed, no set dogma, and no required ritual. It maintains that there is good in every approach to God and in every religion that is filling someone's needs. Its position holds that one should not focus on past sins but on the potential good in all.

Unity emphasizes spiritual healing, prosperity and practical Christianity in its teachings. Illness is thought to be curable by spiritual means, but Unity does not reject or resist medical treatments. It is an inclusive faith that welcomes diversity of belief. Unity is accepting of the beliefs of others.

Although Unity is not a traditional Christian teaching, the foundations are based on the teachings of Jesus and the Bible.
