The Emerson Avenger

The Emerson Avenger is a "memory hole" free blog where censorship is scorned. This blog will "guard the right to know" about any injustices and abuses that corrupt Unitarian Universalism. Posters may speak and argue freely, according to conscience, about any injustices and abuses, or indeed hypocrisy, that they may know about so that the Avenger, in the form of justice and redress, may come surely and swiftly. . . "Slowly, slowly the Avenger comes, but comes surely." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

In 1992 I underwent a profound revelatory experience of God which revealed that the total solar eclipse "Eye of God" is a "Sign in the Heavens" that symbolizes God's divine omniscience. You may read about what Rev. Ray Drennan of the Unitarian Church of Montreal contemptuously dismissed as my "psychotic experience" here: http://revelationisnotsealed.homestead.com - This revelatory religious experience inspired me to propose an inter-religious celebration of Creation that would take place whenever a total solar eclipse took place over our planet. You may read about what Rev. Ray Drennan and other leading members of the Unitarian Church of Montreal falsely and maliciously labeled as a "cult" here: http://creationday.homestead.com - I am now an excommunicated Unitarian whose "alternative spiritual practice" includes publicly exposing and denouncing Unitarian*Universalist injustices, abuses, and hypocrisy. The Emerson Avenger blog will serve that purpose for me and hopefully others will share their concerns here. Dee Miller's term DIM Thinking is used frequently and appropriately on this blog.

The UUA Board Of Trustees Facebook Account And U*U Clergy Sexual Abuse Cover-Up And Denial - What's The Connection?

How about these brand-spanking new memes and text messages protesting against the UUA Board's past and ongoing knowing and willful complicity in UUA clergy abuse cover-up and denial that I was able to post to the UUA Board Of Trustees Facebook account, thanks to ALL UUA Trustees being all but totally oblivious to what is posted on their own Facebook account?

A Free And Responsible Search For Truth And Meaning And Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape - What's The Connection?

How about this Eat Your Words Diet comment that I just posted in response to the 'Sermon: Tending the Sacred Fire of Eros' post of U*U BDSM Dom Desmond Ravenstone's blog?


If U*Us believe in a free and *responsible* search for meaning and Truth, then let U*Us start to speak up for comprehensive education on U*U clergy sexual misconduct aka UUA clergy sexual abuse, not only for U*U children and youth who have been raped or otherwise molested and sexually abused by "less than perfect" U*U "pastors" & U*U Sunday School teachers aka U*U Religious Educators, but as part of a continuous and lifelong process of growth, as a way of furthering U*U understanding and appreciation of the myriad ways that UUA leaders cover-up and deny U*U clergy sexual abuse, including "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers", to say nothing of certain U*U Sunday school teachers aka UUA Religious Educators. . .

UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales And UUA Moderator Jim Key Are Really Nice Fellas. . .

But don't take *my* word for it U*Us. . .

Take the word of the Youth Observer to the UUA Board of Trustees Benji Janapol, a high school senior from the Woodinville Unitarian Universalist Church just north of Seattle, Washington, as posted to the 'Eyes on the Board – Youth Observer 2015' post of the Blue Boat blog of Youth and Young Adult Ministries.

Oh what the heck.

Take my word for it too. . .

As posted in this comment that I just submitted to the "moderated" aka censored Blue Boat blog -

(Note: While maybe not reflected by this mugshot, President Rev. Peter Morales, Moderator Jim Key and Treasurer Tim Brennan are really nice fellas.)

Yes UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales is SUCH a nice fella that he misuses blasphemy law in Bill Cosby style legal bullying that is intended to cover-up and deny “such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape” committed by “certain Unitarian Universalist ministers”.

And UUA Moderator Jim Key is SUCH a nice fella that he tells brazen bald faced lies about UU clergy misconduct, including effectively denying ANY children have ever been sexually abused (to say nothing of raped. . .) by Unitarian Universalist ministers in brazenly ASSerting that,

“There were NO incidents of abuse of children or elders in my investigations.”

in what was ostensibly a second UUA “official apology” to victims of UU clergy sexual misconduct in his first Moderator’s Report to a UUA GA.

The UUA Board Of Trustees' Facebook Page Gets An "Electronic Communication" From Yours Truly. . .

Minutes ago I noticed that I was not yet blocked on the UUA Board Of Trustees' Facebook page. So I decided to strike while the iron is hot as it were and, with minimal consideration for strategy and tactics, deposited the following message on the post that cites the famous phrase:

"All the best laid plans... (of Big Fat U*U Mice and men)"

with respect to some other FAILed plans of the UUA Board Of Trustees.

Robin Edgar "All the best laid plans..."?
I am still waiting for the Unitarian Universalist Association to sincerely and publicly apologize for any "inconvenience" *these* "best laid plans" of the Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales UUA administration's Canadian attorney, Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc André Coulombe, *may* have caused to me, any and ALL victims of "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers", and any other persons of inherent worth and dignity who may be directly or indirectly affected by the "best laid plans" of U*U "mice" and their Stikeman Elliott "man" in Montréal.

The Unitarian Universalist Association's "Democratic Practice" Is Nothing But A Meaningless Sham. . .




But don't take *my* word for it U*Us. . .

Take the word of UUA Trustee Rev. Sarah Stewart as posted to The Web in her Stereoscope blog post entitled:

'Transforming the UUA Commission on Appraisal'

Why appointed and not elected? Isn’t that undemocratic?

The bylaw amendment would create a Commission which was appointed by the Board rather than elected by the General Assembly. The members of all Board committees are appointed by the Board (some Ministerial Fellowship Committee members are also appointed by the UU Ministers Association). Some have wondered if having an appointed committee instead of an elected committee robs the Commission of some of its independence.

In our practice of democracy as an association, there is not much practical difference between appointment by the Board and election by the General Assembly. Since elections (with the exception of Moderator and President) are almost always uncontested, it is simply a question of which group of dedicated Unitarian Universalists recruits the leaders we elect or appoint. Many people help find members for our committees: the Nominating Committee, the Appointments Committee, and the UUA staff all make recommendations. Leaders are affirmed by uncontested vote at the GA or by vote of the elected trustees. Both election and appointment are legitimate, democratically-grounded ways to serve. In our current practice of uncontested elections, even GA elections do not represent a real choice between leaders for our movement. Appointed positions and elected positions are functionally equivalent.

end quote

So there you have it U*Us. In actual practice within the pseudo-democratic Unitarian Universalist Association, there is little or NO real difference between a UUA leader being appointment by the UUA Board of Trustees, or being ever so democratically "elected" by U*Us, since U*U "elections" are almost always uncontested. The only exception to this not so democratic "democratic practice" of The U*U Movement is the "election" of UUA Moderators and UUA Presidents by the few thousand UU delegates during any given UUA General Assembly, but let's not forget that the UUA has set up a system for pre-screening Presidential candidates if not candidates for the position of UUA Moderator. In fact, prior to the 2008 UUA Presidential election there was an effort by UUA insiders to ensure that the candidacy of Rev. Laurel Hallman would be uncontested by anyone. . .

MANY Unitarian Universalist Churches ARE Dysfunctional

But don't take *my* word for it U*Us. . .

Take the word of Universalist "Christian" U*U minister Rev. Scott Wells, as posted to The Inter-Connected Web of the internet in his brand spanking new 'Boy In The Bands' blog post entitled -

'A ministerial shortage is practically our tradition'

"And with SO many churches reputed to be “clergy killers” or otherwise dysfunctional, who can blame them?"

I can't help but notice that Rev. Scott Wells does not deign to consider the very real possibility that the very reason that SO many U*U "churches" ARE "reputed to be “clergy killers”* or otherwise dysfunctional" is because SO many U*U "churches" have been negatively affected by not only U*U clergy sexual misconduct, including but not limited to what the UUA's Canadian attorney describes as "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape". . . but also by various non-sexual forms of U*U clergy misconduct that the UUA and MFC aka Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee not only turn willfully blind eyes to, but even go to extreme lengths to cover-up and even officially deny?



* It depends upon what the meaning of the term "clergy killers" is. . .
