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: - 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.

The Fraudulently Hypocritical Mission Statement of the alleged Unitarian Church of Montreal. . .

I have said it before, but it bears repeating. . . that Unitarian Universalists aka UUs (now aka U*Us. . .) are very good at "affirming" and "promoting" the purported Seven Principles of UUism and other loudly and publicly proclaimed UU ideals, "statements of conscience" and indeed "mission statements" etc. etc. but do a rather poor job of actually practicing them. . . especially when it comes to internal U*U injustices, abuses, and hypocrisy etc. It is not for nothing that I have chalked the following slogan onto the sidewalk in front of the Unitarian Church of Montreal on more than a few given Sundays -


or indeed rather more recently, since becoming hilariously aware of CUC Executive Director Mary Bennett's not so "Intelligent Design" and *reVision* of the now quite ubiquitous UU acronym for what is now known, at least up here in Soviet Canuckistan aka The True North Strong And Free. . . as U*Uism.

Only in Canada U*Us say? Pity. . .


Here is the stunningly hypocritical "mission statement" of the Unitarian Church of Montreal that was created years after I was permanently expelled for publicly "tarnishing" the undeserved public "image" of this alleged Unitarian "church" by peacefully publicly protesting against its own very well documented injustices, abuses and outrageous hypocrisy. . .

We, Unitarians of Montreal, provide a sacred space where we embrace diversity and seek truth. We cultivate moral integrity and foster a spirit of caring, creativity and celebration of life. We nurture spiritual search and practice, affirm the democratic process in human affairs, and visibly promote social justice, sustainability, and kinship with all life in our neighborhood, nation and global community

Adopted at the AGM on June 4, 2001

Guess which alienated life form was most probably very much in "the neighborhood" of the Unitarian Church of Montreal displaying picket signs that protested against these very same Montreal Unitarians making a complete mockery of these fine words, but quite evidently insincere, even outright fraudulent and outrageously hypocritical words, via their other very well documented words and actions. . .

The withdrawal of Mr. Edgar’s membership from the Unitarian Church of Montreal was not motivated by his religious beliefs, but by his disruptive and aggressive behavior towards the members of this congregation. His inappropriate behaviour has continued for more than ten years. Seven years ago he was brought before a Disruptive Behavior Committee, where over the next three years attempts were made to have him moderate his unacceptable behaviours. He would agree to proposed solutions and then go on as before. He was repeatedly warned that failure to comply with what he had agreed to do would result in serious consequences. Over this period, he was suspended from participation in Church life for six months. Unfortunately, upon his return his behaviour worsened , and he was suspended for an additional year. Again when he returned, his inappropriate behavior continued. Finally in November 1999, at a meeting of the full congregation, during which he spoke on his own behalf, a congregational vote was taken and his membership was revoked. This decade long process, during which sincere attempts were made by the congregation to negotiate a solution, ended when it became that he had no intention of ceasing his disruptive and aggressive behaviours. It should be noted that Reverend Ray Drennan did apologise, in person, on more than one occasion. However, this did not meet with Mr Edgar’s satisfaction. Mr. Edgar has redressed his grievances to whomever he has saw fit, be it the UAA, CUC, etc., and his complaint to the Quebec Human Rights Commission in 2002 was summarily dismissed as being without merit. Mr Edgar continues to picket the church in the futile belief that the Church will act. Reverend Drennan is no longer the minister as he left to follow his own life’s journey; and the church has simply moved on.

This is now the fifth time that anonymous U*U has posted the above U*U BS in an effort to deny and discredit the legitimacy of my grievances. It is quite ridiculous for anonymous U*U to keep reposting this U*U BS when I already demonstrated just what BS it really is in my point by point rebuttal (aka * by * reU*Ual) a few days ago. . . Please forgive me for using the words "silliness" and "fantasy" to describe this U*U BS butt. . . as my point by point rebuttal of this U*U BS clearly demonstrates, it is highly delusional institutional denial that is chock full of sincerely ignorant DIM Thinking and disinformation and thus can be quite properly described as a U*U "fantasy". Simililary this U*U BS can be correctly described as "silliness" in its own right but it clearly and unequivocally constitutes U*U "silliness" to continue to post the exact same U*U BS when it has already been discredited and disproven by my previous point by point rebuttal. All this does is publicly demonstrate the sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity of not only anonymous U*U but also the Unitarian Church of Montreal and the greater U*U religious community which engages in or condones this DIM Thinking attempt at institutional denial of U*U injustices, U*U abuses and U*U hypocrisy.
