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.

Praise The Lord! And Ray Grigg For Passing The U*U Jihad Navy More Ammunition, On Sunday December 7th 2008, The 67th Anniversary Of Pearl Harbour. . .

The Dagger Of Sweet Reason aka The Emerson Avenger is one of those "go with the flow" kind of guys, which can come in very handy when you are the Supreme Commander of the U*U Jihad Navy. . .

The following U*U ammunition quite serendipitously, and less than luckily for "less than lucky" U*Us, flowed into The Emerson Avenger's hands minutes ago. It is the synopsis of a Sunday sermon delivered to the Comox Valley Unitarians by Taoist U*U Ray Grigg on Sunday, December 7th, 2008, the 67th Anniversary of the Japanese Navy's "less than advisable" sneak attack on Pearl Harbour, Honolulu, Hawaii which *officially* provoked the "less than sleeping" sleeping giant of the United States of America to enter that other War of the World, World War II, not to be confU*Used with World War U*U, aka The War of the U*U World. . .

Herewith, with no further ado or "to do" the synopsis of Ray Grigg's Sunday lecture with in*appropriate embedded hyperlinks courtesy of the Stealth submarines aka Stealth U*U-Boats of the U*U Jihad Navy -

"Cognitive Dissonance & Perfection" with Ray Grigg.

The theory of cognitive dissonance describes how we try to reduce discomfort by choosing the reality that creates the least anxiety. Facts and objectivity are not necessarily our choices of preference. Indeed, evidence can be optional if it doesn't concur with our comfort. And once we find this comfort, then we tenaciously hold on to it even in the face of overwhelming, opposing evidence. Ray will then go on to discuss the historical and religious beliefs about perfection which has caused dissonance and suggests that we rethink our ideas of perfection as a means of coming to new insights and awareness as we attempt to resolve the paradoxes we encounter in ordinary life. Ray is the popular columnist of "Shades of Green" in the North Islander, is a published author of seven books on Taoism and Zen and former director on the Advisory Council for the Centre for Studies in Religion and Society at the University of Victoria.
