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 Church Of The Larger Fellowship's Daily Compass Blog And Unitarian Universalist Injustices, Abuses And Hypocrisy - What's The Connection?

How about this Elie Weisel quotation about protesting against injustice(s) that was posted to the Church of the Larger Fellowship's 'Daily Compass' blog today?

“There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, but there must never be a time when we fail to protest.”


― Elie Wiesel

What is the most recent thing you have done to protest injustice?

The most recent thing I have done to protest injustice(s) is this little blog post of mine, but on May Day 2016, which coincided with #UUsunday May 1st, 2016, I was engaged my "alternative spiritual practice" of peaceful public protest against diverse Unitarian Universalist injustices, abuses, and hypocrisies outside the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal; as may be seen in this little Tweet of mine.

The Unitarian Universalist aka U*U injustices I am currently protesting against include, but are by NO means limited to. . . the Unitarian Universalist Association's immoral, unethical, borderline criminal, and yes. . . #BatShitCrazy misuse of Canada's blaspĥemy law in Bill Cosby style legal bullying that is obviously intended to cover-up and deny "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" to borrow two choice phrases from the arrogant and aggressive cease and desist demand letters that the UUA's Canadian attorney, Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe, had me served with in June of 2012.

Unitarian Universalist Pedophiles And Rapists And Freedom Of Opinion - What's The Connection?

How about today's UUA Church Of The Larger Fellowship's Daily Compass blog post entitled Freedom Of Opinion which is VERY pertinent to the Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales' UUA administration's immoral, unethical, borderline criminal and yes. . . #BatShitCrazy false #BlasphemousLibel accusation against me which was obviously intended to intimidate me into "memory holing" The Emerson Avenger blog posts that tell the readily verifiable Truth about UU rapist Rev. Mack Wallace Mitchell, and Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein's pedophile rapist First Parish Norwell parishioner Richard Buell?

The CLF's Daily Compass post about freedom of opinion is similarly pertinent to the brazen #BaldFacedLies that UUA Moderator Jim "See NO Evil" Key aka *Certified* Risk Management Consultant James C. Key SO riskily and SO foolishly slipped into the all but completely worthless second UUA "institutional apology" to victims of UU clergy sexual misconduct that he sandwiched into his first Moderator's Report to the 2014 UUA General Assembly aka #UUAGA in Providence, Rhode Island.


The saying goes that everyone is free to their own opinion, but not to their own facts. The modern world of social media makes it easy to share and debate opinions. It also makes it easy to share “facts” that simply have no basis in reality.
When have you allowed your opinions to lead you astray from researching the facts?

*Certified* Risk Management Consultant James C. Key aka UUA Moderator Jim "See No Evil" Key Is Viciously Demonized By Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein

In this plagU*Urized quote from U*U small town pastor Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein's 'Beauty Tips For Ministers' blog post entitled 'Small Town Pastor'.

"Don’t you get too comfy corduroy or cookie-baking in your persona. Sin is real, Satan is a liar and he is in your community like he’s in every other one I ever heard of. You stay sharp and shiny, ya hear?"

Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt And Unitarian Universalist Clergy Sexual Misconduct - What's The Connection?

How about this parody version of a UUA statement in support of abortion access that UUA President Peter Morales made about the Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt challenge of Texas abortion law:

“Besides having a long and shameful history of clergy sexual misconduct Unitarian Universalism has a long history of supporting a broad spectrum of women’s rights including making one’s own decision about a terminating a pregnancy caused by being impregnated by a less than perfect Unitarian Universalist minister. In Texas, lawmakers infringed on the dignity of women who seek access to safe and affordable abortion services in the wake of being impregnated by "less than ethical" UUA clergy by enacting a restrictive law that disproportionately affects the most vulnerable and marginalized among U*Us. As president of the Unitarian Universalist Association, I join with other faith leaders in calling on the US Supreme Court to vote to uphold human rights and reproductive justice and to reverse the Fifth Circuit Court’s decision so that women who have unwanted pregnancies caused by being victims of Unitarian Universalist clergy sexual misconduct may terminate those pregnancies.”

According to Kenneth Sutton, managing editor of UU World, UU Women’s Federation President Kirstie Lewis and the Rev. Debra Haffner, president and CEO of the Religious Institute, also joined in UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales' statement in support of abortion access for women impregnated by UU clergy.

Thomas Aikenhead Unitarian Martyr And UUA Misuse Of Blasphemy Law To Cover-Up & Deny U*U Pedophilia & Rape - What's The Connection?

How about this comment that I just submitted to the "I am Thomas" - Thomas Aikenhead Unitarian Martyr blog post of Chief Officer of the General Assembly of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches Derek McAuley's "moderated" 'From the Unitarian Chief Officer' blog just for starters?

"It provides a salutary tale when freedom of speech is still challenged in so many parts of the world and blasphemy remains a crime."

So does the Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales led Unitarian Universalist Association's immoral, unethical, borderline criminal, and yes. . . #BatShitCrazy blasphemous libel accusation against me that the UUA aka U*U eh? has yet to formally withdraw and publicly apologize for bringing against me.

Morons. . .

Clergy Sex Abuse Unitarian Universalist Style And UUA Moderator Jim "See NO Evil" Key's Twitter Account - What's The Connection?

How about these little Tweets of mine sent to, or about, *Certified* Risk Management Consultant James C. Key aka UUA Moderator Jim "See NO Evil" Key which expose and denounce UUA Moderator Jim Key's past and ongoing complicity in Unitarian Universalist cover-up and denial of "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers", to quote two choice phrases from the two arrogant and aggressive cease and desist demand letters the UUA's Canadian attorney, Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe had me served with in June of 2012?







Not that in his capacity as UUA Moderator, *Certified* Risk Management Consultant James C. Key isn't complicit in ALL other UUA cover-up and denial of ALL other forms of Unitarian Universalist clergy sex abuse aka clergy sexual misconduct. . . Indeed the brazen bald faced lies about UU clergy sexual misconduct in general, and UU clergy sex abuse of children in particular, that UUA Moderator Jim "See NO Evil" Key slipped into the UUA's utterly worthless second "institutional apology" to victims of Unitarian Universalist clergy sexual misconduct that was wedged into his first Moderator's Report to a General Assembly of the UUA in 2014 make it abundantly clear that *Certified* Risk Management Consultant James C. Key is a knowing and willful participant in ongoing DIM Thinking UUA denial, "ignorance" and minimization of not only "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers", but all the other less serious forms of UU clergy sexual misconduct. I can't help but wonder about just how many other brazen #BaldFacedLies UUA Moderator Jim Key has told in his professional career as a *Certified* Risk Management Consultant James C. Key. . .

Rev. Dr. Terasa Cooley UUA Program and Strategy Officer Viciously Kicks UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales In His Big Fat U*U Balls. . .

Via the links embedded in this snippet from a brand-spanking new UU World article that is sub-titled -

The Rev. Dr. Terasa Cooley leaves UUA executive team after unsuccessfully seeking nomination to run for UUA president.

With organized religion facing an uncertain future, where lies the hope for Unitarian Universalism?

Ironically, it’s the Unitarian Universalist Association’s small size that gives it a distinct advantage for innovation and adaptation, according to the Rev. Dr. Terasa Cooley, who resigned January 31 as chief strategist for the UUA, where she promoted initiatives that she believes can reinvigorate Unitarian Universalism.

“By having a smaller system, it’s easier to be agile and do new things, as opposed to turning the cruise liner” of a huge denomination, Cooley told UU World, adding that Unitarian Universalism is the only major religion putting significant attention toward re-imagining itself and supporting a wide variety of innovative efforts.

The Unitarian Universalist Association Of Congregations Continues To Lose Member Congregations In 2015-2016

The UUA aka Unitarian Universalist Association* continues to lose member congregations in 2015-2016 and is still in obvious decline. Right now (i.e. 10:00 am Thor's Day February 4, 2016) the UUA has only 970 certified congregations, with 69 congregations remaining non-certified


Even if all 69 currently non-certified UUA congregations do what is necessary to become certified member congregations of the UUA in the coming weeks and months, something that is exceedingly unlikely to actually occur... the UUA will have a maximum of 1039 member congregations in 2016, which is 4 fewer than its official claim of having 1043 congregations in 2015 in its official (and apparently inflated) official membership statistics.

Groundhog Day And Unitarian Universalist Clergy Sexual Misconduct aka Clergy Sex Abuse - What's The Connection?

What better day than Ground Hog Day to observe the shadow of the tiny, declining, fringe religion known as The U*U Movement aka Unitarian Universalism and prognosticate on how much longer the Unitarian Universalist Association and The U*U Movement more generally will continue to try to hide U*U clergy sexual misconduct aka U*U clergy sex abuse hidden as much as it thinks it can get away with?

I first associated Groundhog Day with "the Deep Dark Shadow Cast By ALL Forms Of UU Clergy Misconduct" in this email that I sent to UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales on Tuesday, February 2, 2010, just over two months before I descended from Montreal to Boston to protest against U*U clergy abuse of all kinds during the April 2010 meeting of the UUA Board of Trustees. For various reasons I decided to keep my protest minimal and attend the April 2010 UUA Board of Trustees meeting instead, so that I could personally and directly share some of my concerns about serious problems with the UUA's policies and procedures for handling clergy misconduct complaints so that these U*U problems could be corrected. Almost six years later, the problems that I brought to the attention of ALL UUA Trustees and ALL UUA leaders who were present at the April 2010 UUA Board meeting have yet to be corrected.

Two year ago, on Groundhog Day 2014, I reimagined Groundhog Day as 'Revealing The Shadow Of Unitarian Universalist Clergy Misconduct Day'. It seems that this "reimagining" of Groundhog Day may be catching on with *certain* Unitarian Universalists. This morning, soon after I poked my head out of my burrow in Montreal, it came to my attention that the UUA's Church Of The Larger Fellowship's 'Daily Compass' blog post for Groundhog Day 2016 says the following. . .

Legend has it that if the groundhog sees his shadow today, that he will be scared back into his hole, leaving us with six more weeks of winter. That’s a long time to hide from yourself.

How do you respond when you see your shadow side?

 
So the emphasis of today's observance of 'Revealing The Shadow Of Unitarian Universalist Clergy Misconduct Day' will be on just how long the UUA, and The U*U Movement more generally, have been scared of the rather ugly shadow cast by UU clergy sexual misconduct aka U*U clergy sex abuse and have not only been hiding from this "shadow" of The U*U Movement, but have been going to immoral, unethical, borderline criminal (if not actually criminal...) lengths in doing their damnedest to ensure that U*U clergy sexual abuse aka #UUA #CSA is kept hidden as much as it remains possible to keep it hidden from not only most Unitarian Universalists, but the general public.

In June of 2014, during his first Moderator's Report to a General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association, UUA Moderator Jim "See No Evil" Key aka *Certified* Risk Management Consultant James C. Key actually had the unmitigated gall to try to Deny, Ignore & Minimize U*U clergy sexual misconduct as much DIM Thinking as he thought he could get away with in what was supposed to be a second UUA "institutional apology" to victims of UU clergy sexual misconduct. Jim Key's "official apology" contains #BaldFacedLies about UU clergy sexual misconduct, but the most egregious bald faced lie that UUA Moderator Jim Key uttered in his worthless "apology" was,

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

Yes, you read that correctly, in his "official apology" to victims of UU clergy sexual misconduct, UUA Moderator Jim "See No Evil" Key engaged in some incredibly immoral and incompetent, to say nothing of #BatShitCrazy, UUA "Risk Management" in falsely asserting that in his own personal "investigations" into UU clergy sexual misconduct he had found NO evidence of ANY sexual abuse of children aka #ChildSexAbuse committed by "less than perfect" Unitarian Universalist ministers. Is that brazen bald faced lie even remotely believable by anyone who is not a total moron or in deep psychological denial? Is it possible that the thousands of UUA GA delegates who heard that bald faced lie when it was uttered by Jim Key in his first Moderator's Report to a UUA GA, or learned of it later, actually believed that all but completely "beyond belief' bald faced lie? Are Unitarian Universalists SO stunningly naive as to believe that it is actually possible for The U*U Movement to get through more than a half century of Unitarian Universalist history without one single "incident" of U*U clergy sexual abuse of a child?



This is a work in progress and will be updated and expanded through the day.

Update: Today was busier than expected. This blog post may be updated & expanded over the next few days.

Rev. Renee Ruchotzke UUA Leadership Development Consultant Of The UUA's Central East Regional Group (CERG) Makes Apple Crumble Out Of U*U "Bad Apples". . .

In this plagU*Urized parody version of Central East Regional Group (CERG) UUA Leadership Development Consultant Rev. Renee Ruchotzke's Growing Vital Leaders blog post entitled:

'One Bad Apple CAN Spoil the Whole Bunch


The 1970’s heart-throb boy band The Osmonds provided a disservice with their ear-worm hit song “One Bad Apple.

They sang,

“One bad apple don’t spoil the whole bunch, girls,
Oh, I don’t care what they say, I don’t care what U*Us say now”

when it fact it really can and will, especially in dysfunctional U*U "churches", and even at UUA HQ in Boston.

By saying “bad apples” I’m referring to behaviors of people in The U*U Movement that can act like the ethylene that rotting fruit emits that will eventually rot the fruit nearby. But instead of causing rot, the human version of the bad apple breaks the covenants of our U*U "religious community".

Let me be clear that it’s behaviors that I am talking about, not the "less than perfect" U*U people themselves. As creatures of free will, we U*Us can make bad choices about our behavior. As communities, we member congregations in the "tiny, declining, fringe religion" known as The U*U Movement can set standards of behavior to encourage people to be their best selves instead of their worst selves, at least for a few hours while attending Sunday services at U*U "churches".

As I’ve heard many U*Us express,

“Going to church helps to remind ourselves that the so-called "U*U world" revolves around Peacebang and other abusive U*U "pastors".”

Tiny, declining, fringe religions that are unable to grow, or that are declining in numbers and enthU*Usiasm often have ignored the Big Fat U*U Bad Apples among their midst and yet they are puzzled about why visitors don’t return or why new members, to say nothing of long time members, drift away without saying why they think their U*U "church" sucks at practicing what U*Uism preaches.  (Even if they did, it’s a rare U*U minister or UUA leader who would take such feedback to heart.)

I am passionate about this because–every week–someone walks through the doors of a U*U congregation who seeks the saving message of liberal religion (you are not inherently sinful like Peacebang is!) and the saving community of U*U "covenants" (we pledge to support and encourage abusive U*U clergy and incompetent and corrupt UUA leadership to impede Unitarian Universalism's growth). It breaks my heart when anyone is repelled from “the bunch” of unhealthy, corpse-cold Unitarians in a U*U "church" by the “bad apple” of an individual U*U minister or two.

Why do we tolerate behaviors in that repel not just visitors but healthy and contributing members? I think it’s because our "less than perfect" UUA leaders, U*U clergy, and FAR too many ordinary U*Us exhibit a failure of nerve to stand up to such destructive behaviors of their fellow U*Us and sometimes even enable them with excuses or explanations like:


“Oh, that’s just Peacebang.  She’s always been like that.  Lots of U*Us are buggers.  Peacebang just doesn’t know when to stop.”

“We know that The Emerson Avenger is always criticizing Peacebang, and the UUA Board's past and ongoing complicity in her verbally and psychologically abusive clergy misconduct that is clearly "conduct unbecoming a minister", but Peacebang aka Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein IS one of our major "pastors".  We wouldn’t want to risk losing face.”

“We’re the only religious community that will put up with Peacebang's abusive “bad apple” behavior. She may have numerous incidents of aggressive behavior, but they’ve never happened while she's delivering a sermon at First Parish Norwell Unitarian Church or the Unitarian Universalist Church of Greater Lynn, so it’s none of the UUA's business.”

“It’s too bad that we’ve haven't gone through eight administrators in five years because of Scott pointing our every little mistake. Scott used to be our volunteer Religious Educator and he was not a member of one of our founding families.  They have too much power for the board of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Springfield MO to do anything about the Big Fat U*U "Mistakes" Scott identifies and seeks to correct.”

“Letting someone like Robin Edgar talk for 2 minutes during Joys and Sorrows at the First Unitarian Congregation of Ottawa shows newcomers & long time members in The U*U Movement that we U*Us are welcoming and supportive of the Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales' UUA administration's immoral, unethical, borderline criminal, and yes. . . #BatShitCrazy misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in Bill Cosby style legal bullying that seeks to cover-up and deny "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers", to say nothing of certain U*U "Religious Educators".”

“A lot of our older members, to say nothing of our fundamentalist Atheist UUA ministers like Rev. Ray Drennan and Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales, had bad experiences with Christian churches in their childhoods and*or subsequent careers as ordained Christian clergy.  People should understand that when these U*U "pastors" condemn Judaism, Christianity, Islam and other "obsolete religions" they mean ALL belief in God.”

“If people aren’t sticking around after a few bad experiences with some of our crankier members, or our 400+ abusive UUA ministers, it just means that they weren’t all *that* committed to our dysfunctional U*U "church" and*or "tiny,declining, fringe religion" in the first place.”

If you currently have a similar “bad apple” shituation in your U*U congregation, or at UUA HQ in Boston for *that* matter, get ready to despair!  There are many resources to help your U*U leadership team (and it takes a Big Fat U*U Team!) to cover-up and deny the “bad apple” behaviors of abusive U*U clergy and incompetent and corrupt UUA leadership:
  • Call your Regional Staff.  They will be good partners in helping your abusive U*U minister and*or dysfunctional U*U "church" figure out how to cover-up and deny their “bad apple” behaviors and expel you from their "church".
  • Create and enforce a Disruptive Behavior Policy to suppress legitimate complaints about abusive “bad apple” U*U clergy or other U*U “bad apples” under threat of expulsion from the "church".
-Rev. Renee Ruchotzke, Congregational Life Consultant, Central East Region.

About the Author 
Leadership Development Consultant, Central East Regional Group (CERG) of the UUA. I have a vision of Unitarian Universalist congregations being led by thousands of perverse, spiritually immature and uncompassionate people ready and willing to enable the “bad apple” behaviors of the “bad apples” in our “tiny, declining, fringe religion”.  I believe U*U clergy abuse cover-up and denial works best when shared between lay and professional leaders.
