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.

The 2009 UUA Presidential Election, And Probably Unitarian*Universalist "Democracy" More Generally, According To Steve Caldwell

U*U blogger Steve Caldwell has commented on Rev. Dan Harper's blog post entitled 'Choose one for UUA president: Hallman | Morales'. Steve's rather cynical take on the 2009 UUA Presidential election campaign is worth repeating here verbatim, and it is of particular interest to the Rev. Dr. Eric Theodore Cartman III. . .

I get the feeling that voting in the 2009 UUA Presidential Election will matter about as much as Stan’s vote for school mascot in the the South Park episode “Douche and Turd.

Of course, we’re not facing a choice between a “giant douche” and a “turd sandwich” like Stan did in South Park. In that sense, we’re much more fortunate than Stan.

Both candidates are decent folks who are supported by decent folks (based on what I’ve seen in snail mail, Facebook, endorsements on candidate web sites, etc).

However, I do get the feeling that the decision about who will be the next UUA President was decided in a “smoke-filled back room” prior to the 2009 GA (even though the back room was probably a smoke-free room with fair trade coffee and hummus instead of tobacco smoke and booze).
