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 Rights of Spring. . .

Well today was Easter Sunday of course and I made a point of protesting against the outrageous hypocrisy of the Unitarian Church of Montreal as per my usual habit. I had not protested for several weeks as a result of having more important things to do with my time in the last month or two. As is often the case the Montreal police showed up just minutes before I would normally have left at about 11 a.m. They said that they had received a complaint. I replied, as is my habit, by asking them to tell me something I didn't know OWTTE anyway. They asked when I intended to leave and I responded by saying that I would leave within the next fifteen minutes to half an hour at most. The two officers decided to go into the alleged "church" to talk to those "church" goers who had filed the complaint against me. After several minutes they came out and the usual discussion ensued.

The police officers asked what I was protesting against and I told them the ugly very well documented truth about the Unitarian Church of Montreal. I told them that the former minister of the Unitarian Church of Montreal, Rev. Ray Drennan, had maliciously labeled an inter-religious event that I had organized as a "cult" and that he had labeled the religious experience that I was trying to explain to him as "your psychotic experience". I told them that even after I obtained letters from a qualified psychiatrist that he could find "no traces of psychoses" in me that "church" leaders continued to consider me to be a "nutcase". I informed the police officers that when I filed formal complaints about Rev. Ray Drennan's demeaning and abusive clergy misconduct with the leaders of the Unitarian Church of Montreal that not only did they do absolutely nothing to responsibly redress my grievances but that they subsequently expelled me from their alleged "church" for complaining about their minister's intolerant and abusive clergy misconduct.

More coming. . .

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.
