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. . .

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: - 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: - 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.

Robin Edgar is a crusader

Robin Edgar attacks UUs indiscriminantly.

Robin Edgar is blind to the pain he causes

Robin Edgar loves to hate UUs

Robin Edgar is unreasonable

Robin Edgar is more interested in harassing UUs than he is in any kind of healing

Therefore, Robin Edgar's crusade is illegitimate.

Actually it is UUs who apparently are more interested in having this conflict cntinue than enter into the processes necessary to bring the conflict to an honourable conclusion that upholds genuine justice, equity and compassion in human relations. This has pretty much always been the case from the very beginning of this long drawn out conflict. As I said elsewhere today the UUs I know never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity to end this war of words. I mught add that they take plenty of opportunities to flaunt their purported principles and purposes and various other claimed ideals.

Read this and weep. . .

From: "Robin Edgar"
Subject: About Rev. Ray Drennan's Resignation

Robin Edgar
Montreal, Quebec
Canada XXX XXX March 9, 2005

Dear Member of the Board of the Unitarian Church of Montreal,

It has come to my attention that Rev. Ray Drennan recently tendered his resignation as minister of the Unitarian Church of Montreal. I wish to make it very clear to church Board members that Rev. Drennan's resignation will not result in an end to my ongoing protest activities. On the contrary it is likely to result in an intensification of my protest activities in the coming weeks and months unless the Unitarian Church of Montreal acts quickly to responsibly redress my longstanding grievances that arise from Rev. Ray Drennan's demeaning and abusive clergy misconduct. My public protest will not end until Rev. Ray Drennan, and other leading members of the Unitarian Church of Montreal who are responsible for labeling Creation Day as a "cult" and other injustices and abuses that include discrimination and harassment, are held fully responsible for their harmful words and actions. I also expect certain former and current church leaders to face full accountability for their clearly negligent, effectively complicit, and/or unjustly punitive responses to my previous letters of grievance and public protest that contributed to the unnecessary prolongation and escalation of this conflict.

To my knowledge Rev. Ray Drennan has never faced the slightest accountability for his openly hostile, false and malicious, labeling of Creation Day as our cult? Likewise he has never been held in any way accountable for his contemptuous dismissal of my revelatory religious experience as our psychotic experience?along with his angry demands that I immediately seek "professional help" His "injurious and untrue" belittling and maligning of the religious insights that arose from my profound revelatory religious experience as being nothing but "silliness and fantasy" was also condoned. Rev. Drennan has never retracted his clearly abusive "insulting and defamatory" words that I reported to the church Board, the "Disruptive Behavior Committee" and other church members in my previous letters of grievance, nor has he ever acknowledged their "injurious and untrue" nature. My own highly justified picket sign slogans have been described as "injurious and untrue" by Rev. Charles Eddis, and I have been similarly accused of using "insulting and defamatory language" by Board President John Pike.

Why is it that I have yet to hear Rev. Charles Eddis, President John Pike or any other leader of the Unitarian Church of Montreal responsibly acknowledge the quite evidently "injurious and untrue" and "insulting and defamatory" nature of the offensive and damaging language that Rev. Ray Drennan, Frank Greene, John Inder, Keith Robinson and other members of the Unitarian Church of Montreal have falsely and abusively, to say nothing of outright maliciously, used to label me personally and/or my religious beliefs and practices such a Creation Day?

For close to a decade the Board and congregation of the Unitarian Church of Montreal have willfully ignored or unjustly dismissed my serious grievances. Above and beyond this evidently unjust, inequitable, and uncompassionate treatment the Unitarian Church of Montreal has subjected me to repeated, and ultimately permanent, expulsion from the church. The initial six month expulsion was a cynical attempt to censor and suppress the expression of my legitimate complaints in letters of grievance. Later expulsions were unjust and inequitable punitive responses to my subsequent public protest. My ongoing public protest would never have begun if the Board of the Unitarian Church of Montreal, and its so-called Disruptive Behavior Committee, had acted to responsibly redress my legitimate grievances in a just, equitable, and compassionate manner when I filed formal complaints about Rev. Ray Drennan's evidently insulting and injurious "disruptive behavior" towards me and my religious beliefs and practices.

I hereby demand that Rev. Ray Drennan must face full accountability, including appropriate disciplinary action, for his abusive clergy misconduct prior to leaving the Unitarian Church of Montreal. This disciplinary action must be entirely commensurate with the seriousness of Rev. Drennan's demeaning and abusive behavior towards me as it is described in my previous letters of grievance. Rev. Drennan should also be subjected to disciplinary action for the obvious harm that his ongoing refusal to accept any personal responsibility for his clearly "insulting and defamatory language" has clearly caused the Unitarian Church of Montreal. Rev. Ray Drennan, and several other leading members of the Unitarian Church of Montreal, bear personal responsibility for most of any "image tarnishing" that the Unitarian Church suffers as a result of my ongoing legitimate public protest.

I expect the Unitarian Church of Montreal to act quickly and responsibly in its response to this demand for genuinely just and equitable redress of my serious grievances. I expect the church Board to initiate responsible conflict resolution procedures very soon. The upcoming special congregational meeting in April presents an opportunity to responsibly address this conflict and I expect to be provided an opportunity to clearly explain to the congregation as a whole why I am protesting and what the Unitarian Church must do to responsibly redress my legitimate grievances. This ongoing conflict could have ended several years ago if the church Board and the "Disruptive Behavior Committee" had not responded in a negligent, effectively complicit, and unjustly punitive manner to my previous letters of grievance. If I do not receive genuinely just and equitable redress for my legitimate grievances before Rev. Ray Drennan leaves the church I will hold President John Pike and this Board responsible for negligence that effectively condones Rev. Drennan's abusive clergy misconduct. My protest will continue and the next minister of the Unitarian Church of Montreal will inherit this conflict.

Dear "Robin Edgar's" conscience troll. My links go to web pages that support my arguments whereas your amateurish attempts do no such thing. You just make yourself look like a sincerely ignorant and conscientiously stupid troll. You are not helping the UU religious community is doing so. You are just reinforcing the publicly tarnished image of UUs as U*Us. . .

"My links go to web pages that support my arguments "

What are you talking about?

As I have said before, your constant use of google search links is both uninformative and alienating.

Seriously, as one webmaster to another. Links are a tool, use them only where it matters.

The Dagger of Sweet Reason sends his greetings and blessings to The Boot Knife of Quiet Reflection,

I am posting my official U*U Jihad
response to your questions as a new thread so that I can better respond to it and so that other you and other U*Us have a better chance of finding it, commenting and asking further questions. It will essentially be a thread dedicated to explaining the "method" to The Sweet Dagger of Reason's apparent or alleged or possibly even "real" (in at least one dictionary defined sense) "madness". . .

Allah prochaine,
