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.

Rev. James Ishmael Ford Endorses Rev. Laurel Hallman For UUA President

U*U blogger Rev. James Ishmael Ford, Senior Minister of the First Unitarian Society of Newton, Massachusetts has publicly endorsed Rev. Laurel Hallman as his choice for the next President of the Unitarian*Universalist Association of Congregations aka the UUA. Here are Rev. Ford`s exact words, as reproduced on Rev. Laurel Hallman`s Elect Laurel Hallman for President of the UUA web site.

I have been an admirer of Laurel Hallman for many years. She is at once grounded, practical and possessed of a soaring vision of transformation for us as individuals and for our world. I believe she is uniquely qualified to lead us in these next difficult years. I deeply hope Laurel Hallman will be our next Unitarian Universalist president.

I can`t help but notice that Rev. James Ishmael Ford speaks of "these next difficult years" in his endorsement of Rev. Hallman. I can`t help but wonder just what he means by that turn of a phrase. In what ways does Rev. James Ishmael Ford believe that the coming years will be "difficult years" for the UUA or the Unitarian*Universalist religious community more generally? I hereby invite Rev. James Ishmael Ford to elaborate on just what he means by commenting on this blog post.
