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 UUA's National False Advertising Campaign Gets Worse. . .



This latest U*U print media advertisement, published in the May 12, 2008 issue of TIME magazine as part of the UUA's national marketing campaign, presents the deliberately “provocative” slogan -

MY GOD IS BETTER THAN YOUR GOD.

Followed up by the following “disclaimer” -

Is this any way to talk about religion? Maybe you yearn for an open-minded, spiritual community where people respect each other’s beliefs and worship together as one faith. Where no one’s idea of God is better than another’s.
Welcome to Unitarian Universalism.

This UUA advertisement reeks of false and fraudulent advertising, to say nothing of outrageous hypocrisy. . . in that plenty of U*Us, including no shortage of U*U clergy, are absolutely convinced that their beliefs about God (or lack thereof. . .) are considerably better than those of other people. Fundamentalist atheist U*U ministers preach from their wayward pulpits that God is a “non-existent being”, that belief in God “seems primitive”, and that most religious rituals (except their own U*U rituals of course. . .) are “meaningless.” Oh so superior Humanist U*Us quite regularly make it ever so clear to God believing people that their devout belief in the non-existence of God is infinitely better than any and all belief in God. In fact one of the two candidates for the next President of the UUA Rev. Peter Morales, the Senior Minister of Jefferson Unitarian Church in Golden Colorado, has even publicly pronounced most other religions to be “obsolete religions” in his Sunday sermon titled A Religion For Our Time in which he officially announced his candidacy for UUA President. Is this any way to talk about religion? It sure is for a good number of utterly shameless U*Us, including arrogant U*U ministers. . .

Anyone who genuinely yearns for an open-minded, spiritual community where people respect each other’s beliefs and worship together as one faith might be well advised to look further afield than the Unitarian*Universalist “religious community” because there are no shortage of stunningly small-minded, narrow-minded, close-minded, and outright suspicious-minded U*Us who quite regularly express deep disrespect, and even outright hostility and contempt, for other people’s religious beliefs and practices.
