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.

Rev. Scott Wells Is Wondering Where All The Unitarians Are. . .

In a blog post titled 'The missing tradition' on his 'Boy In The Bands' blog U*U minister Rev. Scott Wells suggests that "the real missing tradition within Unitarian Universalism today is not Universalist Christianity, but “classic” Unitarian theism." According to Rev. Wells "I know it was around 25 years ago, when I started with “the Unitarians.”" Apparently the kind of Unitarianism that, "uses the Bible, knows Jesus (if not vitally or even immediately) as inspiration or friend and tries to cultivate a religion based on comprehension: in the sense of cultivating the best of current research, public participation and internationalist interests" is nowhere to be found in the U*U World if one is to believe Rev. Scott Wells. He claims that, "I’ve seen no vital signs in the UU press or blogosphere." And he asks, "Is it a victim of Postmodernism, or perhaps just of changing tastes?" Considering that Rev. Scott Wells makes reference to "gratuitous God bashing" in his blog post I am surprised that he does not consider the possibility that the "“classic” Unitarian theism" he refers to was not the victim of the "gratuitous God bashing" that so many "Humanist" U*Us quite regularly engage in in too many U*U "churches". . .

Here is the comment that I just attempted to leave on Rev. Scott Wells' censored 'Boy In The Bands' blog -

I expect that the classical Unitarians got tired of the gratuitous God-bashing that goes on in rather too many U*U "churches" and left Scott. God bashing and other forms of anti-religious intolerance and bigotry that you turned a contemptuous blind eye to when I protested against it at the Quebec City UUA GA in 2002. N'est-ce pas Scott? Be assured that you rank very highly on the list of outrageous U*U hypocrites I know.
