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.

U*U Media Whoring And Ersatz Civil Disobedience

Over on his Sparks In The Dark blog the pseudonymous U*U blogger who goes by the handle Ogre in the U*U "blogosphere", who I have some reason to believe is likely to be U*U ministerial hopeful Patrick McLaughlin, criticizes California civil servants for what he perceives as fake civil disobedience which he characterizes as "moral cowardice". Since I am not impressed with the ersatz "civil disobedience" of UUA President Bill Sinkford and other U*U ministers who commit minor crimes to get themselves arrested for the resulting media attention I fed Ogre's words right back to have with the following comment that I left on his blog -

Allow me to light a candle under hypocritical U*U asses and point out that the proverbial "bottom line" of some U*U "civil disobedience" is that UUA President Bill Sinkford and various other U*U ministers aren't committing real civil disobedience when they willfully block the entrances of buildings during protests in order to get themselves arrested on trespassing charges for the resulting photo-op and media attention.

They're not acting based on their moral beliefs because I am sure that most of them agree with laws against trespassing and would most probably use trespass laws themselves if protesters blocked the entrance of 25 Beacon Street or a Unitarian*Universalist "church". They're simply engaged in a gratuitous act that's most analogous to a media-whoring. They're not acting in a moral and consistent way, and they're almost certainly not willing to face the consequences of engaging in real civil disobedience by willfully breaking criminal laws that they are morally opposed to. Thin, thin stuff here and here, to say nothing of other instances of ersatz U*U "civil disobedience" butt enough to light a candle under some hypocritical U*U asses. . .

I had "reasonable grounds" to believe that "Ogre" would "memory hole" my comment that pointed out that outgoing UUA President Rev. Bill Sinkford and other U*U ministers were every bit as guilty of engaging in ersatz "civil disobedience" as the California civil servants that "Ogre" is accusing of "moral cowardice". So I checked back on his Spark's In The Dark blog immediately after reproducing my comment here. Sure enough he had already relegated my comment to the burgeoning "memory hole" of the U*U Word. Here is the follow-up comment that I left for this U*U "Ogre". I expect that it will be promptly "memory holed" too. . .

No problem Patrick. I expected you to "memory hole" my comment exposing U*U ersatz "civil disobedience" which is precisely why I checked back here soon after reproducing it on my blog.

Have a nice day,

Robin Edgar aka The Emerson Avenger
