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.

UUA President Peter Morales YouTube Video Of His "Stump Speech" Announcing His Candidacy For President Of The UUA Has Been "Memory Holed". . .

That's right U*Us. I just discovered earlier today that the YouTube video of Rev. Peter Morales' Sunday sermon of January 13, 2008 which was delivered at the Jefferson Unitarian Church in Golden, Colorado, and during which he announced his candidacy for president of the UUA, is no longer available to be viewed on YouTube. Well at least the written text / transcript of Rev. Peter Morales' rather problematic 'A Religion For Our Time' sermon cum "stump speech" is still available to be read on the website of the Jefferson Unitarian Church of Golden, Colorado, for the time being. . . The "memory holing of this historic U*UTube video means that the following comments which I posted to it months ago have conveniently disappeared from the interconnected and interdependent web of the internet as well. . . Thankfully they have already been preserved for U*U posteriority on the TEA blog in a blog post titled 'Rev. Peter Morales' YouTube Video Announcing His Candidacy For President Of The UUA Has Had Only 674 Views Since January 23, 2008. . .' One more time for good measure, here are the questions that I posed to Rev. Peter Morales that he has failed to provide the slightest response to so far. . .

So Peter what do you intend to do to address the hatred, injustice, prejudice, ignorance and fear that pervades the U*U World?

When will you and other U*Us provide genuine justice, equity and compassion to victims of U*U injustices, abuses and hypocrisy?

How much openness and acceptance of God believing people can there be in the U*U World when intolerant fundamentalist atheist "Humanist" U*Us, including U*U clergy, are allowed to insult and abuse God believing people with complete impunity?

Here is the follow-up comment that I posted seven months later, i.e. about three months ago now, after Rev. Morales failed, or simply refused, to answer those questions -

A hate to have to say so Rev. Morales but, as things currently stand, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been rather more forthcoming and forthright in answering some rather lame questions posed to him by current UUA President Bill Sinkford than you have been in answering these and other legitimate questions and concerns posed to you by me and other people. Do you really want President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to appear to be a more forthcoming and forthright leader than you? I would hope not.

end quote

"Memory holing" embarrassing, or at least potentially embarrassing. . . YouTube videos does nothing to answer these and other questions about Rev. Peter Morales', now UUA President Peter Morales', personal position(s) vis à vis what he calls "old religions" and even writes off as "obsolete religions". Au contraire, such "memory holing" of questionable U*UTube videos tends to raise more questions than it hides. . .
