They welcome anyone and everyone.. Universal means applying to all, which is more information. Universal religions consist of many members, and these members are often of different ethnic backgrounds (very diverse) hence the term universal. It is also true that you can convert to a Universal religion at any time of your desire because once again, anyone is welcome to be a member/follower of a universal religion. So, it is evident that Universal religions consist of many different ethnicities because they convert, they accept anyone of any background. -are usually not so closely tied to one place Similar terms: Global religion, proselytic religion
