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.

The Emerson Avenger Is "Just As Crazy As Ever" And So Is The Unitarian Church of Montreal. . .

Today as I was engaging in my "alternative spiritual practice" of protesting various U*U injustices and abuses outside of the Unitarian Church of Montreal one of the people entering the "church" launched the following words in my direction - "You're just as crazy as ever."

Technically he is of course correct. I am indeed as crazy as I ever was. The question is was I ever "crazy" and, if so, just how "crazy" is that? My response too him was that he and the rest of the congregation of the Unitarian Church of Montreal are just as "crazy" as ever too. . . I pointed out that it was "crazy" for he and other Montreal Unitarians (to say nothing of other U*Us in positions of responsibility within the U*U World. . .) to obstinately refuse to negotiate a genuinely just, equitable and compassionate settlement of this long drrawn out conflict. I dare say that it is also just a bit "crazy" for Montreal U*Us, to say nothing of other U*Us. . . to continue to suggest that I am "crazy", "nuts", "unwell", and even "psychotic" and suffering from "schizophrenia", when one of the core elements of my ongoing public protest is protesting against such malicious pathologizing of yours truly by Montreal Unitarians and other U*Us.

So, what would make you happy? If Drennan apologizes?

I was hoping my last comment, long ago, had an impact. But, you're just as crazy as ever.

Which isn't all that crazy really. . . Not half as crazy as a "religious community" that foolishly allows its fundamentalist atheist ministers, and "fundie" atheist "Humanists" to slandrously belittle and malign the religious beliefs and practices of God believing people with complete impunity. Anyone who bothers to read my picket sign slogans, to say nothing of this blog and numerous other internet postings knows that this ongoing "war of words" is not just about Rev. Ray Drennan's intolernance and bigotry. It goes well beyond that. It is about U*Us abjectly failing and obstinately refusing to walk what they talk in terms of their purported principles and purposes and other claimed ideals. Most of my picket sign slogans target the Unitarian Church of Montreal as an institution and the greater U*U religious community that for over a decade now has done absolutely nothing to promote justice, equity and compassion in human relations with yours truly. . .

Hi It's "anonymous", I know how much the Emerson avenger emjoys this following post so I shall add it again!

The withdrawal of Emerson Avenger'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 more than once, 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, but 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 absolutely clear 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, and in writing. However, this did not meet with the Emerson Avenger's satisfaction. The Emerson Avenger 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. The Emerson Avenger continues to picket the church in the futile belief that the Church will act. Reverend Drennan is no longer the minister as he left 2 years ago to follow his own life’s journey; and the church has simply moved on.

So Emerson Avenger shall I also post my second document?

Feel free Anonymous U*U I am very confident that I can rebut whatever your mysterious "second document" says every bit as thoroughly as I have rebutted your previous U*U BS SPAM. . .

Well I'm still waiting for you to post your mysterious "second document" Anonymous U*U. . . That and the slightest scrap of evidence that I was ever involved in any "chair throwing incident" as you have falsely and maliciously alleged recently. . .

Considering the fact that Anonymous U*U has now posted his or her DIM Thinking institutional denial SPAM here well over a dozen times now, even after I have thoroughly rebutted it months ago. . . and is now heading towards 20 postings of that misinformed SPAM, I doubt that he or she considers me to be a "low priority".

I think that I have clearly *demonstrated* to U*Us, Montreal Unitarians and otherwise, just what a "patient" fellow I can be over the last decade or so. My post was issued as a challenge to Anonymous U*U to put up or shut up. . . I look forward to methodically and quite patiently rebutting his or her future postings of DIM Thinking misinformation, especially anything having to do with the purely mythological "chair throwing incident" that I was recently accused of. . .

I'm still waiting for that mysterious "second document" that you spoke about Anonymous U*U. . . I am all ears or perhaps I should say I am all eyes.
