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.

In The "Better Late Than Never" Department. . .

U*Us interested in clergy misconduct issues should try to attend this seminar as the Andover Newton Theological School next week. I only found out about it today. If I had known earlier I might have headed down there myself. . .

An ethical analysis of both competence and abuse in the ministerial relationship, the program is designed to help clergy and lay leaders identify unethical or potentially abusive conduct and to encourage ethical, competent ministries. A must for ministerial candidates, interns and newly settled ministers. To register contact the seminar's leader, the Rev. Deborah J. Pope-Lance, by email Deborah, both a community minister and a licensed therapist, maintains a private therapy practice in the Boston area and provides coaching and support to clergy in challenging ministries, often in the aftermath of predecessors' misconduct.
