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.

Banned In Boston By The UUA Board Of Trustees Of All Things. . .

This week's 'UU Trivia Question of the Week' in Jeff Wilson's 'Transient And Permanent' blog is about Banned UUA Board Terminology.

Lends a whole new meaning to the term 'Banned In Boston' doesn't it?

Jeff Wilson writes, "We usually think of Unitarian-Universalism as synonymous with freedom of conscience and expression. However, there is a notable exception. No less than the Board of Trustees of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations banned the use of a term from its meetings, and even went so far as to levy monetary fines against any members who used it. This week’s UU trivia question is: what is the term that they banned?"

I hate to burst Jeff Wilson's big fat U*U bubble but, whereas Unitarian*Universalists aka U*Us might like to wishfully think that Unitarian*Universalism aka The U*U Movement aka *The* Tiny Declining Fringe Religion is synonymous with freedom of conscience, freedom of speech, and freedom of expression, the banning of the use of one as yet unidentified word by the UUA Board of Trustees is far from being the only "notable exception" to Unitarian*Universalism's increasingly dubious and questionable association with freedom of conscience, freedom of speech, and freedom of other forms of expression. Heck, it is suitably ironic that Jeff Wilson himself censored the perfectly on-topic albeit "snark" comment that I posted in a waggish poke at the anti-religious intolerance and bigotry that is all too obvious and apparently still prevalent in The U*U Movement. Yes, needless to say, I am the alleged "frequent spammer" who asked if the term was 'God'. I am glad to hear that Jeff *appreciated* the snark.

It seems to me that your's truly has been banned in Boston or, more properly aka truthfully and accurately, banned *by* Boston. I seem to recall having been permanently banned from participating in any and all UUA sponsored email lists for daring to name the names of some "less than excellent" U*U ministers, most notably Rev. Ray Drennan and Rev. Diane Miller, and asking some pointed questions about alleged Nazi ideologues being leaders of the Deutsche Unitarier Religionsgemeinschaft and former SS officer Sigrid Hunke's Bund Deutscher Unitarier Religionsgemeinschaft Europaischen Geistes split away group. UUA President Peter Morales is on record as saying that 25 Beacon Street "reeks of privilege and hierarchy", allow me to add that UUA headquarters at 25 Beacon Street in Boston MA also reeks of corruption and hypocrisy. . .

For the record here is the follow-up comment that I just submitted to Jeff Wilson -

Was it the N-word?

If so, why did it need to be expressly banned by the UUA Board of Trustees?

Preemptive striking from the record?

More later. . .
