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.

Tom Stites Take A HaikU Asterisk U. . .

Four clever haiku poems dedicated to hypocritical U*U Souls in general, and particularly hypocritical U*U Soul, former UU World editor Tom Stites, in particular. . .

These four haiku poems are adaptations of the four haikus of former UU World editor Tom Stites that were published in the UU World propaganda organ a while back.

Yellow minister

leaves "church" for New Brunswick

red*faced U*Us spin. . .

Rollert's icy heart,

exposed now in 'The Gazette',

will note again soon. . .

Robin sends emails

to the bare*faced liar

sudden corpse*coldness.

U*U spectacle

ahead, fighting; behind, won;

look right! An U*U Soul. . .

Straight from the horse's U*U sorta. . .

In our contemporary culture of Unitarian*Universalist hubris, U*Us are desperately short of humility, and focusing outside ourselves creates a seedbed for it. The words human, humility, and humus come from the same ancient Indo-European root meaning soil. Like all parts of nature, we U*Us come from the soilfrom the dust or, in the view of science, from the stardust — and we will return to it. Haiku ensures humility because it keeps U*Us close to the soil we came from and thus will admit none of the strutting and cleverness that fuel most other writing.

With haiku, the ego must stand aside.
