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.

UUA President Bill Sinkford Gets Slapped Upside The Head On The U*U World Blog

It looks like UUA President Bill Sinkford has become somewhat enmeshed in the "interconnected web" of the internet as a result of his rather questionable participation in the Fellowship of Reconciliation meetings with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other prominent delegates from Iran. As previously noted, the response of U*U bloggers, including a couple of outspoken U*U clergy bloggers, was overwhelmingly critical if not outright condemnatory. The critical and even condemnatory response of U*U bloggers to President Bill Sinkford's poorly advised self-aggrandizing publicity stunt has been duly noted by UU World magazine editor Christopher Walton on the UU World blog today in a blog post titled 'Reactions to Sinkford's meeting with Iran's president'. U*U World editor Chris Walton writes, "UUA President William G. Sinkford's participation in a meeting of American peace activists with Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, provoked angry reactions in the UU blogosphere." Then, after briefly noting that "The Rev. Kit Ketcham defended Sinkford's participation", he goes on to extensively quote the critical and condemnatory blog posts of Rev. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang, Rev. Scott Wells, ChaliceChick, and Chicagoland Unitarian Bill Barr who got the ball of wax rolling with a blog post titled 'Ahmadinejad Honors Rev Sinkford' on his "Pfarrer Streccius" blog on the same day that the UUA published it's self-congratulatory aka "crowing"* propaganda on the UUA web site. Chris Walton even went so far as to refer to and quote a blog post titled "Simply talking does not make you a prophet; sometimes, it makes you a fool" from a self-described "estranged UU" named Benjamin on the 'Power Before Policy' blog. I can't for the life of me imagine why UU World editor Chris Walton did not see fit to pull a few quotes from The Emerson Avenger blog posts of this self-described "excommunicated Unitarian". . . Chris Walton concludes his U*U World blog post by mentioning Rev. Fred Hammond's post on his "A Unitarian Universalist Minister in the South" blog post titled 'The Fool as Prophetic Voice' which argues that "there is a place for the fool too as prophetic voice". Perhaps he meant to soften the blow a bit, but his final words about President Sinkford being something of a "fool" are open to some rather less flattering than interpretation. . .

More later. . .
