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.

KabU*Um! The Former USS Iowa Fires A Damaging Broadside At The U*Us Of Allegedly Sleezy (Sic) "Baby Boomer" U*U Ministers Accused Of Sexual Misconduct


KabU*Um! The former 'USS Iowa', "less than new" Iowa Class battleship recently acquired by the U*U Jihad Navy and. . . not only completely refitted but also rebaptized as the U*U Jihad Navy Ship -

U*UJN 'Name Of State Withheld In Order To Protect The Identities
Of Allegedly Sleezy (Sic) Baby Boomer U*U Ministers Accused Of Clergy Sexual Misconduct'

fires a damaging broadside into the U*Us of hypocritical U*Us sailing on the U*U Ship of Fools on the U*U Sea of Hypocrisy.

Hi Robin:

First time I have heard about the UU Jihad Navy, and the fact that they have acquired a warship is impressive. Can they sail it up the St. Lawrence?

I am curious to learn more about the clergy sexual abuse. Is it rampant among UU clergy? Are the females guilty too or only the males.

I didn't realize this was such a big issue that the UU needed Navy warships. Does the UU Jihad Navy also do battle with clergy abuse in other denominations?

All the best,

David Markham

:First time I have heard about the UU Jihad Navy,

What took U*U so long David? The U*U Jihad Navy has been the scourge of the U*U Sea of Hypocrisy for almost as long as that Transcendentalist Super Hero known U*U World-wide as The Emerson Avenger has been *alive*. But I guess you probably didn't know that the dreaded Emerson Avenger was a Transcendentalist Super Hero either. Well neither did I until U*U RE director Cranky Cindy quite confidentially told me he was. ;-)

:and the fact that they have acquired a warship is impressive. Can they sail it up the St. Lawrence?

They can sail all over the U*U World as long as there is enough water to float the boat in question David. The U*UJNS Manhattan sailed *down* the Saint Laurence, crU*Uised around Quebec's Gaspe Peninsula and New Brunswick, past* between NU*U-Found-Land and Nova Scotia, steamed right past Boston and Providence Rhode Island, and just fired a warning shot across the bow of a rather large U*U Ship of Fools on the island of Manhattan, perhaps not inappropriately once New Amsterdam, earlier today.

:I am curious to learn more about the clergy sexual abuse.

So am I. . .

:Is it rampant among UU clergy?

Well to paraphrase a US President guilty of what the UUA would, at least *theoretically*, consider to be sexual *misconduct* it all depends on the meaning of the word "abuse". If we stick to what the UUA, its very aptly named Ministerial Fellowship Committee aka MFC, and perhaps the Unitarian*Universalist Ministers Association consider to be clergy sexual misconduct, it is "less than minimal". . . If one believes the testimony of Rev. Daniel Harper aka Mr. CrankPants clergy sexual misconduct, as fairly broadly defined by U*U officials, would *appear* to be rampant in that he claims on his Yet Another Case Of Unitarian*Universalist Clergy Sexual Misconduct blog that -

In my Unitarian Universalist tradition, some experts estimate that over fifty per cent of all Unitarian Universalist congregations have experienced an incident of clergy sexual misconduct since the 1960’s; that is to say, within living memory.

Of course as famous but "less than Unitarian" author Mark Twain once said -

"There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics."

If one divides about 1000 or so U*U "churches" by the better part of 50 years one arrives at a rough figure of about 20 cases of U*U clergy sexual misconduct of all kinds within the U*U World per year, assU*Uming of course that those experts are right about their own rough estimate. Is 20 cases of clergy sexual misconduct per year, out of 1000 "less than safe" U*U congregations, "rampant"? U*Us tell me. . . Then again one has to ask, how many cases of U*U clergy sexual misconduct go completely unreported for various reasons?

:Are the females guilty too or only the males.

Well, to quote Peacebang aka Rev. Victoria Weisntein verbatim -

Are ya kidding me? How about the good ole ministers (see, I’m not even saying what GENDER they are!) who commit serial adultery and still get the plummiest pulpits?

In a word. . .

Yes

In fact I know of a number of cases of female U*U ministers being accused of, if not found guilty of, clergy sexual misconduct by another female, and I am not talking about the jilted wives of female U*U clergy who are having an affair or a "fling" with their husband or other form of "partner".

:I didn't realize this was such a big issue that the UU needed Navy warships.

The UU aka U*U World definitely doesn't need U*U Jihad Navy warships, be they Iowa class battleships, Star Trekking space ships, or top secret Stealth submarines but it kind of asked for them. . .

:Does the UU Jihad Navy also do battle with clergy abuse in other denominations?

The U*U Jihad Navy kind of has its hands full dealing with U*U clergy sexual misconduct *and* apparently quite rampant non-sexual misconduct. It is after all the >U*U< Jihad Navy. As the UUA's "less than perfect" official apology to victims of clergy sexual misconduct states -

Other denominations have done better. . .

Even The Wonderful Wizard of U*Us can only do so much from behind* the screen of his "obsolete" yet awesomely powerful X86 computer. . .



* Or would that be in front of?

U*Us can thank me for not saying anything about "motion in the ocean". ;-)
