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.

Kurt Vonnegut Genuinely Cares About The Emerson Avenger's Unitarian Jihad!

This is a tale of a meeting of two lonesome, skinny, fairly old white men on a planet which was dying fast.

All this happened, more or less. The war parts, anyway, are pretty much true.

Any reviewer who expresses rage and loathing for a novel is preposterous. He or she is like a person who has put on full armor and attacked a hot fudge sundae.

I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the center.

To whom it may concern: It is springtime. It is late afternoon.

Still and all, why bother? Here's my answer. Many people need desperately to receive this message: I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about, although most people do not care about them. You are not alone.

If you can do a half-assed job of anything, you're a one-eyed man in a kingdom of the blind.

Who is more to be pitied, a writer bound and gagged by policemen or one living in perfect freedom who has nothing more to say?

Life happens too fast for you ever to think about it. If you could just persuade people of this, but they insist on amassing information.

Human beings will be happier - not when they cure cancer or get to Mars or eliminate racial prejudice or flush Lake Erie but when they find ways to inhabit primitive communities again. That's my utopia.

And that's my interconnected masterpiece if I say so myself! ;-)

Come on UUs can't you see that, at the very least. . .

Google is on my side?!

Robin:
I'd reccomend you switch to a blog teplate that puts the description and your profile into the sidebar.

As it is, people have to wade through a screenful of text just to see the top headline.

Thanks for your constructive criticism Indrax!

It is most welcome and well appreciated.

I would have to agree that The Emerson Avenger blog is not quite as "user friendly" as it could be and indeed should be. . . ;-) I chose this template because I thought that is was one that Ralph Waldo Emerson himself would feel at home inhabiting but then who am I to pre-judge Emerson's taste in interior decorating as it were.

I also liked the "rosette" symbols which are in fact a solar-flower/solar-eye motif that was originally inspired by the total solar eclipse "Sun Flower" and "Eye of God". . .

Man Google is so much fun!

Hmm, I might be able to re-do the layout, but keep the graphics.

I'll play around with it.

Hi Indrax,

Don't waste any time on this blog. If I want to cutomize I will probably move to a different blog provider.
