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.

Re: Unitarians put a little faith in advertising

Dear Editors,

Unitarian Universalists seem to have more faith in advertising than in God. UUism is not a "melting-pot faith", unless perhaps they mean melting everyone down to agnosticism and atheism, nor do UUs welcome all comers. God believing people in general, and Christians in particular, are not genuinely welcome in many UU "Welcoming Congregations". The article shows that even God is not particularly welcome in UU "churches". Some fundamentalist atheist UUs, like Plano Texas UU David Wallace Croft, are even famous for "crusading against God".

The UUA's national marketing campaign results from an age shift in its membership, not a "cultural shift". UUs are growing older and membership is stagnant. The UU "church" is not really growing at all. Adult membership in the UUA is closer to 150,000 than 250,000. UUism has lost ground as a percentage of the population of the USA since the UUA was formed in 1961.

UUA President Bill Sinkford, and other UU "religious leaders", must understand that UUism will never grow unless it becomes God positive. The overwhelming majority of Americans who believe in God will find many UU "churches" to be quite Godless. Indeed "Humanist" UU ministers have been heard preaching that God is a "non-existent being" and that belief in God "seems primitive" during Sunday services. No matter how much they advertize, Unitarian Universalists will never experience significant growth as long as God, and God believing people, are less than genuinely welcome in UU "Welcoming Congregations".
