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 Presidents To Say Nothing Of CUC Executive Directors Can And Do Say Some Mighty Foolish Things And Their Words *Do* Reflect On The U*U Movement

In a blog post titled 'What Is Wrong With UU the Way it Is? part 1' on his Pfarrer Streccius blog ChicagoLand conservative U*U blogger Bill Baar plays the congregational polity card by pretending that the words (if not actions. . .) of UUA Presidents do not reflect upon the greater U*U religious community. I disagree and am reproducing here the comment that I left on Bill's blog post.

"A UUA Prez can say some mighty foolish things, but that's on him/her; not you, me, or the wider UU."

Sorry Bill but I have to disagree with you on that point. You might as well say that the Pope can say some mighty foolish things, but that's on him; not the wider Roman Catholic religious community. For the record the President of the UUA is the *official spokesperson* of the UUA so what he or she says most certainly does reflect on not only the UUA butt The U*U Movement more generally. I might add that if U*Us do not speak out against the mighty foolish things that a UUA president, or indeed any number of other "less than excellent" U*U ministers, may say that their complicit silence does not reflect very well on The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™ either. . .

I may well add some examples of some of the mighty foolish things that have been said by UUA Presidents over the years to this blog post later. God knows that there already are a good number of examples of mighty foolish things that have been said by UUA Presidents, top level UUA staff and administrators, "less than excellent" U*U clergy, and other Unitarian*Universalist U*Us scattered throughout this blog but it can't hurt to repeat the mighty foolish things that some UUA Presidents have said here.

Thanks go out to Bill Baar for inspiring me to write a brand-spanking new parody song about foolish U*Us which will be titled -

These Foolish Things Remind Me Of U*U
