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.

Cue The Twilight Zone Theme Song. . . This One Is Almost Eerie. . .

The Emerson Avenger blog received a visit today from someone at Emerson College, Boston, Massachusetts. This person ran a Google search for - what's a famous avenger - and The Emerson Avenger blog post titled 'Is Famous Unitarian Thomas Jefferson Numbered Amongst Famous White Supremacists As Well?' is currently ranked at no. 3 in Google for that particular Google search. I guess it would be fair to say that former U.S. President, famous Unitarian, and even somewhat famous White Supremacist. . . Thomas Jefferson is something of a famous avenger as well, if only within the context of that famous post 9-11 joke about Al-Qaeda mastermind Osama bin Laden encountering 72 Virginians in heaven.

It seems the person who made this Google search was probably not a Unitarian aka U*U since their query lacked the obligatory question mark of Unitarians. I can't help but wonder what went through the mind of this person at Emerson College when their Google search for the truth and meaning of what "a famous avenger" is brought them more or less full circle back to a blog named after famous ex-Unitarian Ralph Waldo Emerson.

Hello Robin,
I find your blog quite thought provoking. I do have a problem with what I consider one of its assumptions though. You refer to Emerson as an ex-Unitarian. Emerson died in 1882. Until he was too incapacitated to leave his home he attended the Radical Club. The club was made up of Unitarian clergy and lay people and formed as Gay Wilson Allen described "to discuss the abolishing of all vestiges of supernaturalism in the Unitarian religion." Members of the club included Julia Ward Howe and Henry James Sr.

Thanks for the info about Ralph Waldo Emerson Charlie. I am glad that you find The Emerson Avenger blog to be tyhought provoking since I certainly intend it to provoke thought, ideally amongst rather thoughtless Unitarian*Universalists who allow U*U injustices, abuses and hypocrisy to go unchecked and unremedied.

Maybe I am overstating things about about Ralph Waldo Emerson being an ex-Unitarian. Needless to say I am referring to his resignation as a Unitarian minister in protest against the "corpse-cold Unitarianism of Brattle Street and Harvard College", and his role in the American Transcendentalist movement.

Feel free to chime in on anything at any time and thanks for (presumably) using your real name.

Meant to say - Maybe I am overstating things a bit about Ralph Waldo Emerson being an ex-Unitarian.
