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. . .

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.

Rev. Ray Drennan Strikes Again! What A Disgrace. . . ;-)

Well it would appear that fundamentalist atheist U*U minister Rev. Ray Drennan ( aka Raymond Drennan ) is describing conditions at École Clement Cormier in Bouctouche, N.B. as a "disgrace". Sounds like the rather graceless and indeed disgraceful Rev. Ray Drennan that I know so well. . . Allow me to paraphrase and parody his latest outburst of disgraceful rhetoric -

We heard stories of U*U ministers shouting "cult" in meetings to keep out the theists, of atheists running rampant in the church, and of mould in paper-thin U*U principles," The Emerson Avenger said. "That, of course, is not good for the health of the church or the U*U "religion" alike. I think it's a disgrace."

"U*Us cannot learn, U*Us cannot possibly value religion, when the church is in such lamentable condition."

Do you invent parodies only because you have no way to criticize what he actually said?
He's complaining about poor conditions at his daughter's school. If conditions are even half as bad as he seems to believe, I'd say his response is quite measured.

Nope. I created this particular parody paraphrase to illustrate how Rev. Ray Drennan's description of the "poor conditions at his daughter's school" as a "disgrace" are actually equally, if not significantly more, applicable to the "poor conditions" at his former U*U church that he bears a very high degree of responsibility for.

If conditions at the Unitarian Church of Montreal, and indeed the greater U*U religious community, are even half as bad as I seem to believe, I'd say that my response is quite measured. . . If Rev. Ray Drennan can describe the "poor conditions" at his daughter's school as a "disgrace" I can justifiably describe the "poor conditions" at the Unitarian Church of Montreal and Rev. Ray Drennan's demenaing and abusive clergy misconduct as a disgrace. Indeed I dare say that most people of intelligence and conscience will agree that this recent example of the "poor conditions" within the U*U religious community can be justifiably described as a "disgrace" and that is but one small example of the utterly disgraceful "poor conditions" that U*U religious leaders and lay people are responsible for creating and maintaining, or perhaps I should say that they are guilty of perpetrating and perpetuating. . .

My point is that if the "poor conditions" at the Bouctouche school can be described as "a disgrace" so can Rev. Ray Drennan's disgraceful behaviour towards me and other people as well as the other disgraceful "poor conditions" that I have brought to the attention of U*Us.

But you labeled his recent words as 'disgraceful rhetoric'. Whatever you think about his service at the UCM really has nothing to do with what he is saying about the school today.

Well, no.
Your response has included harassing innocent people online, lying repeatedly, and in general subjecting yourself to moral decay.

You're selling your soul, Robin, that is not measured.


My point is that...

There you go trying to make a point again, and sacrificing the truth to do it. Why don't you just make the case you want to make?

That was simply a play on words referencing Drennan's use of the word disgrace.

:Whatever you think about his service at the UCM really has nothing to do with what he is saying about the school today.

Wrong. What Rev. Drennan is saying about the school today applies very well to his disgraceful conduct at the Unitarian Church of Montreal and indeed the disgraceful conduct of other Montreal U*Us and the Unitarian Church of Montreal as an institution. The parody paraphrase makes that abunduntly clear.

::I'd say that my response is quite measured. .

:Well, no.

Sorry indrax but no one that has been allegedly harassed by yours truly can be properly described as innocent. You have not yet demonstrated that I am lying repeatedly as you have so lamely alleged. I challenged you to produce a list of all my alleged lies and I have yet to see such a list. I am very confident that most people will agree that you have very flimsy grounds upon which to make such allegations about me. I on the other hand can readily demonstrate no shortage of lies told by U*Us, including brazen lies told in U*U propaganda.

:You're selling your soul, Robin, that is not measured.

ROTFLMU*UO

::My point is that...

:There you go trying to make a point again, and sacrificing the truth to do it.

I have not sacrificed any truth to make the points I have just made in this post indrax. Rev. Ray Drennan's conduct towards me and various other people can most certainly be described as "a disgrace" as can the behaviour of other U*Us including other U*U clergy and top level UUA officials like Rev. Dr. Tracey Robinson-Harris and Rev. Beth Miller who effectively endorsed Rev. Victoria Weinstein's sodomy fantasy to say nothing of her other examples of disgraceful unbecoming conduct. . .

:Why don't you just make the case you want to make?

I am pretty sure that I did just that indrax.

As far as moral decay goes indrax I would suggest you take a long hard look at your own amoral behavuiour and the well documented moral decay exhibited by your beloved U*U religious community. . .
