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.

Blogging Tips For Peacebang Courtesy Of The Emerson Avenger

The following is the full text of a letter to the editor that I sent to the Boston Globe about the puff-piece it did on Peacebang aka Rev. Victoria Weinstein in it's "Sunday paper" -

Dear Editor,

We all know the adage "no news is good news" but there is a flip side to that coin. No news is bad news when newspapers fail, or even refuse, to report on newsworthy events and choose instead to fill their pages with contrived distracting dross. A case in point is the Boston Globe's "Sunday paper" front page puff-piece on U*U minister Rev. Victoria Weinstein and her pseudonymous Peacebang's Beauty Tips For Ministers blog. Did the Boston Globe ever report on the newsworthy fact that one of Rev. Weinstein's aging parishioners at the First Parish Unitarian Church of Norwell was recently convicted of raping preteen girls, one of whom was "a female family member" according to the Norwell Mariner? Perhaps the Boston Globe could get around to belatedly assigning a reporter to do a real hard news story or two, and possibly even a feature article, about not only the rapes, trials, and convictions, but how the whole drama played out in terms of Rev. Weinstein's parish and ministry.

In the Globe's puff-piece Rev. Weinstein is quoted as saying, "Anyone who is in a position of leadership has to consider what image they're projecting, and that goes for clergy too." What kind of image is Rev. Victoria Weinstein projecting when she calls for prayers for the convicted rapist in her church's newsletter while not showing the slightest concern for his victims? What kind of image is Rev. Victoria Weinstein projecting when she stridently criticizes Catholics over clergy sexual abuse on her pseudonymous Peacebang blog, while studiously avoiding the slightest mention of serious problems with clergy sexual misconduct within the Unitarian Universalist religious community itself, and this at a time when one of her very own parishioners had recently been convicted of forcibly raping preteen girls? What kind of image of that "Uncommon Denomination" now known as the U*U religious community is Rev. Weinstein projecting when she publicly airs her sodomy fantasy of South Dakota State Senator Bill Napoli anally impaled on the Statue of Liberty's torch on her now not so anonymous Peacebang blog?

Rev. Weinstein admonishes clergy to, "Remember that you are projecting an image with your choice of clothing and hairstyle." May I suggest that Rev. Weinstein would be very well advised to seriously consider just what kind of image of herself, and her supposedly all-inclusive U*U religious community, she is projecting with her choice of words and blogging style?
