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

Location: Montreal, Quebec, Canada

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 Capitalized On The Knoxville Tennessee Shootings For The UUA's National Marketing Campaign

I have previously suggested that UUA President Bill Sinkford, to say nothing of U*Us more generally, cynically capitalized on the tragic shooting of Knoxville U*Us at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church for the purposes of expanding and enhancing the UUA's national marketing campaign. U*Us don't need to take my word for it any more. U*Us can pretty well take President Bill Sinkford's word for it now, as published on the UU World magazine's web site. . .

Sinkford said that the media attention following the shootings, which exposed many people to Unitarian Universalism for the first time, had been a revelation. “We . . . . came to believe that, properly staffed, we could make earned media, rather than paid media, the center of our [marketing] effort,” Sinkford said. “We are hoping in this coming year to pay for fewer, if any, print ads, but to work for and get far more press coverage, both print and broadcast, about who we are and what we stand for.”

I look forward to seeing what President Sinkford and the UUA will dream up to create more "earned media" for Unitarian*Universalism.
