The Unitarian Church of Montreal Engages In False Advertising. . .
The Unitarian Church of Montreal is no longer legally known as The Church of the Messiah. The congregation voted to change the legal name to The Unitarian Church of Montreal some months ago. The name change began as an attempt by Rev. Ray Drennan and other atheist "Humanist" Montreal Unitarians to get rid of the word "church" in the legal name and no doubt the common name of this alleged "church". In fact there were one or two congregational votes to change the legal name of The Church of the Messiah to the Unitarian Congregation of Montreal or the Unitarian Community of Montreal (or some similar terminology) in the last several years but they failed to achieve the two-thirds vote necessary to change the legal name of this "church".
In his missionary zeal to ensure that the word "church" was eradicated from the legal name of the Unitarian Church of Montreal Rev. Ray Drennan once announced in the "church" newsletter prior to one of the previous congregational votes that it was "false advertising" to continue to call the Unitarian Church of Montreal aka Church of the Messiah a "church". In a follow-up letter to the editor of the NUUS UCM member Kenneth Howard QC rightly pointed out that it was equally false advertising to call the Unitarian Church of Montreal "Unitarian" considering that the word Unitarian implies belief in one God. As far as I am concerned both of these atheist "Humanist" Montreal Unitarians were quite right and it was, and still is. . . highly misleading, if not outright false and fraudulent, "advertising" to call the Unitarian Church of Montreal a "church" or even "Unitarian".
I should add that calling itself a Unitarian "church" is by no means the only false advertising that the Unitarian Church of Montreal engages in and that much of its other "advertising" can be shown to be highly misleading, outright false, and even quite fraudulent in that Montreal Unitarians make various claims about themselves that they should know are not true.
