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.

Shadow of Diogenes On Morals

Shadow of Diogenes says on his Paul's Quotation of the Day thread for November 25, 2005 -

A lot of people have abandoned common decency and tossed morals onto the scrap heat and replaced them with an anything goes mentality. We see it all around us in today's world.

The Emerson Avenger says 'Amen'. . .

Here is my response to Shadow of Diogenes' post -

A lot of UU people have abandoned common decency and tossed morals onto the scrap heat and replaced them with an anything goes mentality. We see it all around us in today's UU World.

Well said ! I think some UUs do believe that anything goes and everything is acceptable. I happen to disagree with them on that point.

On his Phil's Little Blog on the Prairie blog Unitarian Universalist religious educator Phillip Lund said -

As I’ve said before, the best way for spiritual progressives to regain our moral influence is by supporting families within our congregations and without.

My response to this statement is -

The best way, and perhaps the only way, for spiritual progressives (or indeed anyone else who has lost their moral influence) to regain their lost or diminished moral influence is by behaving in a manner that is clearly and unequivocally moral and ethical in nature. Religious communities, be they small or large, individual churches or whole denominations, very quickly lose their moral authority and thus any viable moral influence, when they are perceived to be acting in immoral and unethical manners. The public can and does smell religious hypocrisy from very far off. . .
