The church embraces two rules: 1. do not hurt yourself 2. do not hurt anyone else. Members of the Church may often quote from the Bible and other scriptures, but do not claim a direct connection to Christianity. Other holy scriptures of the Church of the Universe include Desiderata, the Gnostic Gospels, the Chaldeans, and the reverence of solstices. Leading member Michael Baldasaro has, along with Walter Tucker, used a system of titles derived from Catholic Christianity such as bishop, archbishop, reverend, and abbot.
