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: 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.

The Whiting On The Wall. . . U*Us As A Percentage Of The Population Of The U.S.A.



This map shows the number of card-carrying Unitarian*Universalists as a percentage of the total population of each *county* in the United States of America. At no time does the population of U*Us ever exceed 1.5 percent of the population of any U.S. county.

White sections of the map indicate counties where no members of the Unitarian Universalist Association are reported. It lends a whole new meaning to Unitarian*Universalism being an overwhelmingly white denomination. . .

So much for Thomas Jefferson's vision of a day when every American would be a Unitarian.

There's something wrong with that map. It says there are no UUs at all in my county, and there are a bunch of us.

It is possible that the map is somewhat flawed. It is based on UUA statistics that are now at least sebven years old but it still does a creditable job of showing just how few Americans have chosen the U*U "faith". If, instead of representing counties where no U*Us whatsoever were reported, the white sections represented counties where U*Us made up less than 0.1 percent of the overall population it would be every bit as white if not somewhat whiter. If that standard was applied to states rather than counties I expect that the map would be quite a bit whiter. . . There are many states where if the number of U*Us was divided into the overall population of the state that it would be well below 0.1 percent. I think that the map more than adequately makes my point even if it is not completely reliable.
