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 fact of the matter is that U*Us aren't half as tolerant as they claim to be. There is a lot of intolerance of various kinds within U*Uism. In my experience liberal North American Roman Catholics are quite a bit more tolerant than a good number of the U*Us I know. Most liberal Christian denominations are every bit as tolerant as U*Uism. One thing that is unique to U*Uism however is the outright anti-religious intolerance and bigotry of the fundamentalist atheist faction of "Humanist" U*Us. How many other religious groups do you know of where God believing people, including bona fide Unitarians. . . are quite regularly subjected to disdain, contempt, hostility and outright abuse by militant atheists?

:You are comparing apples to oranges: general Catholics, general Christians, compared to a "faction" of humanist UUs.

Wrong Kim. I specifically said "liberal" Catholics and "liberal" Christians who are a "faction" of general Catholics and general Christians.

Thanks however for acknowledging here that anti-religious militant fundamentalist atheist "Humanists" are in fact a "faction" within the U*U religious community.

:That's not fair.

See above. Yes it is.

:Each of those other groups has "factions" that are just as intolerant as any of our "factions",

That is a fact Kim! Bravo!

I am in no way denying the fact that other religious groups have intolerant and abusive "factions", that is precisely why I spoke about "liberal" Christians and Catholics. But thanks once again for effectively acknowledging that the U*U religious community has "factions" that are just as intolerant of those of other religious groups. I dare say I know some U*U Taliban ayatollahs as it were. I definitely know some Stalinistic fundamentalist atheist "Humanist" U*Us who, besides hating God believing people aren't too "Welcoming" towards Republicans either. . .

:and a faction of humanist UUs is a faction of a faction because we are not all humanists.I am perfectly aware of that Kim that is why I almost always specifically refer to fundamentalist atheist "Humanist" U*Us in order to distinguish the intolerant militant disciples of Dawkins from the more "liberal" and tolerant U*U Humanists who are ready, willing and able to get along quite nicely with their God believing neighbours.

:You are getting carried away with your own hatred and bigotry.

Wrong. I am very careful to target the intolerant and abusive "fundie" atheist bigots. I do not paint with too broad a brush. I am not a bigot and I don't even "hate" the "fundie" atheists bigots. I just have a bit of a problem with their discrimination and harassment of God believing people. Especially when it happens in a U*U "church" on any given Sunday, as you well know happens here and there in the U*U World.

:You have "clevered" yourself into a corner and can't get out.... good luck.

Wrong Kim. See above. I am not in any corner at all.

You on the other hand just "dumbed" yourself down into a U*U hole. But speaking of U*Us having "clevered" themselves into a corner, or perhaps I should say having dug a hole for themselves. . . you might want to check out this oh so U*U PDF file.

Allah prochaine Kim. . .
