Rev. Diane Rollert Presents A Telling Indictment Of The Unitarian *Community* Of Montreal. . .
Rev. Diane Rollert quoted from the May NU*USLETTER of the Unitarian Church of Montreal
No kidding Diane. . . I seem to recall that you and the Montreal U*U community, to say nothing of the UUA and the greater Unitarian Universalist "religious community" aka the U*U World, don't do justice, don't do equity, don't do compassion in human relations, don't do a genuinely free and responsible search for the truth and meaning behind my picket sign slogans and other protest activities, and that your U*U community seems to be chronically unready, obstinately unwilling, and is apparently even pathologically unable to *do* most of the other purported principles and purposes of the U*U community along with what you and other U*Us call "waging peace".
Now just what do U*Us, Montreal U*Us or otherwise. . . *do* as a community? Well rather too many U*Us mock and ridicule other people's religious beliefs and practices and the U*U *community* turns a blind eye to such anti-religious intolerance and bigotry. The Montreal U*U community, and the U*U "religious community" more generally, egregiously censors and suppresses legitimate criticism and dissent, even to the point of having people falsely arrested on trumped up criminal charges. . . As my picket sign slogans clearly state the Montreal U*U community, and indeed the greater U*U "religious community" as represented by the UUA, *do* support abusive clergy. U*Us, as a community, *do* turn a blind eye to clergy misconduct of various kinds, including clergy sexual misconduct of various kinds.
I could go on but I do believe that all the foregoing, and plenty of other injustices, abuses, and hypocrisy committed by U*Us does indeed tell the public quite a lot about who U*Us are as a community. . .
