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.

Raising Cain Again. . . Yet Another Unitarian Universalist Letter To The Editor

In a blog post by Kenneth Sutton titled, 'Our basic message, welcoming new ministers, and more' on the UU World magazine's 'Unitarian Universalists in the Media' web page, the UUA shills an Op/Ed article titled 'What we need most is one another' by KY U*U minister Rev. Cynthia Cain that was presumably originally published in the Lexington Herald-Leader newspaper and is reproduced on the Kentucky.com web site -

Promoting our basic message

The Rev. Cynthia Cain, minister of the UU Church of Lexington, Ky., writes about the UU faith and why, right now, what people really need is each other. (Kentucky.com - Lexington, KY 10.4.08)

Since the UUA and individual U*U "churches" are constantly prodding U*Us to write letters to the editor about various topical issues in order to raise the public profile of the "tiny, declining, fringe religion" known as Unitarian*Universalism in American public life, I thought that I would help them out a bit by submitting the following letter to the editor to Kentucky.com about how Rev. Cynthia Cain's hypocritical U*U BS published in the Lexington Herald-Leader and on Kentucky.com contrasts with the um *basic message* of Rev. Cain's 'Isten Aldjon, Y'all' blog post titled, OMG! Mean people DO suck.

Dear Editor,

Unitarian*Universalist aka U*U minister Rev. Cynthia Cain pretends that "life, freedom of expression and belief, community, human compassion, service, and peace are things that are of highest value and worth, things that we (Unitarian*Universalists aka U*Us) strive for." How then does she explain the following hate-filled rhetoric posted to her Isten Aldjon, Y'all blog recently?

http://istenaldjon.blogspot.com/2008/09/omg-mean-people-do-suck.html

OMG! Mean people DO suck. And I just heard from a whole bunch of really mean people. Republicans.

and

Back to Sarah Palin. I would like to like something about her, but I don't. She's very, very nasty and she will be loved for it, because she is charming (in a phony way) and attractive (in a creepy beauty-queen way). I was horrified by her politics but now I am repelled by her ugly soul.

Just asking. . .

Well I suppose that Rev. Cain does rather stridently strive for her own freedom of expression and belief as it were. I am not sure about how well she and other "like-minded" Unitarian*Universalist U*Us strive for community, human compassion, service, and peace though.

Sincerely,

Robin Edgar
