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 St. Valentine's Day Letter

Today marks the 12th anniversary of my original letter of grievance that arose out of fundamentalist atheist "Humanist" U*U minister Rev. Ray Drennan's ignorant and intolerant dismissal of my monotheistic religious beliefs as being nothing but "silliness and fantasy", his contemptuous dismissal of my revelatory religious experience as "your psychotic experience" and his false, malicious, and repeated. . . labeling of Creation Day as a "cult".

A dozen years down the road Montreal Unitarians, the UUA, and it's negligent and effectively complicit Ministerial Fellowship Comittee, have yet to acknowledge the slightest wrongdoing on Rev. Ray Drennan's part, to say nothing of their own wrongdoing in their grossly negligent, evidently complicit, and unjustly punitive reactions to my legitimate grievances and formal complaints about Rev. Ray Drennan's egregious anti-religious intolerance and bigotry and his related demeaning and abusive clergy misconduct.

I can't help but wonder how many more years will go by before the Unitarian Church of Montreal, the UUA and its very aptly named Ministerial Fellowship Committee will finally get around to what they should have done 12 years ago and humbly formally acknowledge the well documented injustices, abuses and quite outrageous hypocrisy that they are clearly and unequivocally guilty of.

I think that today is as good a day as any to remind Unitarian*Universalist U*Us of the Roman poet Ovid's saying -

If you want to be loved, be loveable.

I might add that the basic principle that this ancient Roman epigram is founded upon has a much broader and quite universal application -

If U*Us want to be honoured, be honourable.

If U*Us want to be respected, be respectable.

If U*Us want to be trusted, be trustworthy.

If U*Us want to have peace.

Maybe U*Us should try being peaceable. . .
