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.

Rev. Ricky Hoyt Finds Out The Hard Way That U*U "Democracy" Isn't All That It's Cracked Up To Be. . .

I just dropped by Reverend Ricky Hoyt's excellent 'One More Step' blog and read his No Vote For Me blog post. It turns out that Rev. Ricky Hoyt will be unable to cast his vote for UUA Presidential candidate Rev. Peter Morales because on-site voting at the 2009 UUA GA is limited to a five hour period between noon and 5 PM, tomorrow, Saturday June 27 but he made travel arrangements months ago to leave Salt Lake City earlier in the morning on Saturday so that he can deliver a sermon at his U*U church on Sunday. Here is the comment that I submitted in response to his blog post that expresses his dis*illusionment. . .

Looks like you are learning about U*U "democracy" the hard way Rick.

On-site voting will only be allowed between noon and 5 PM on one single day? What a joke. . . Once again the UUA proves that its voting practices don't even come close to democracy at the municipal, state, and national level of secular politics. If I was you I would look into what the UUA's official bylaws say about this. Even I, jaded as I am with U*U "democracy", am rather surprised that there is only one five hour "window of opportunity" for delegates to cast their votes in an important presidential election UUA GA. AFAIAC on-site voting should go from 8 or 9 o'clock in the morning to 8 or 9 o'clock at night at minimum. At least 12 hours should be available for casting ballots on-site.
