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.

Well I'm Sure He's Not The Only U*U Minister Who Is Guilty Of Plagiarism. . .

Minister resigns over plagiarized sermons

Apr 29, 2007 7:42 AM EST

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- A Providence minister who plagiarized sermons has resigned in order to avoid a divisive vote on whether to bring him back.

The Reverend Donald Cameron was installed as minister of the First Unitarian Church in Providence just five months ago.

His plagiarism was exposed when a church member tried to download one of his recent sermons from the Internet.

The church member found Cameron's sermon was almost identical to a sermon delivered by the Reverend Richard Gilbert in Rochester, New York, in 1997.

More investigation found Cameron plagiarized at least two other sermons.

Cameron said he was humbled by the love and forgiveness parishioners have shown him. But he said he was troubled by the anger and pain he caused, and stepped down to avoid more problems.

Because I know of at least one other U*U minister who has plagiarized someone, and in U*U religious propaganda no less. . .

Glad to see you are answering questions. There are some questions you seem to have left unanswered in the thread you dedicated to dealing with my questions.

I'd also like to give you an opportunity to apologize for your recent censorship and hypocrisy.

Your comments are off-topic to this post. As far as censorship and hypocrisy goes I think that U*Us have plenty of apologizing to do to me before I even think of apologizing to U*Us.

Have I actually engaged in censorship indrax aka James Andrix? Does it really constitute censorship to simply remove your off-topic SPAM comments and questions and relegate them to the U*U Hole where they are available for anyone to read if they choose to do so? I am very confident that plenty of U*Us would argue that the simple act of moving your SPAM comments to another thread where they may be read does not actually constitute censorship. Of course it may be that such U*Us are DIM Thinking hypocrites who engage in various forms of censorship themselves. . . ;-) Feel free to respond to this in the U*U Hole since the issue of censorship is off-topic to this thread which is clearly dedicated to plagiarism committed by U*U ministers.

On second thoughts indrax why not present your case that I am guilty of "censorship and hypocrisy" on the brand-spanking new U*U censorship and hypocrisy thread that your off-topic accusations have inspired me to create to deal with U*U censorship and hypocrisy. Come prepared to eat some crow James. . .
