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.

Caveat Emptor U*Us "Less Than Competent" Ministerial Fellowship Committee Members Allow "Less Than Excellent" U*U Ministers aka Abusive Clergy To. . .

Disparage, diminish, or indeed insultingly and abusively demean people with complete impunity aka zero accountability. . .

In other words the UUA's Ministerial Fellowship Committee quite happily allows "less than polite" U*U ministers to "less than responsibly" and considerably "less than temperately" speak scornfully and/or in derogation of pretty much ANY person in private or even in public, with *one* notable, and more importantly, *hypocritical* exception.

Here is my response to Rev. Christine Robinson's "final caveat" disclaimer on the Sepculating (sic) on Ministerial Formation post of her iminister blog. Rev. Robinson is pretty good about posting a fair number of my critical comments on her blog posts about "excellence in ministry" but this one is unlikely to see the light of day over there. As usual I am embedding some additional hyperlinks for those U*Us who care to engage in a free and responsible search for the truth and meaning of what I am saying -

Rev. Robinsonson said - Final caveat: Nothing contained in this post is in any way meant disparage, diminish, or demean the fine, competent, and dedicated individuals who serve, or have served, on the MFC.

Nice internet "disclaimer" Rev. Robinson. ;-)

As you well know Christine, you and all other *fellowshipped* U*U ministers are party to the "Code of Silence" that is written into the UUMA Guidelines and Code of Professional Practice aka its questionably ethical "Code of Ethics". . .

How does it go again?

Let's see. . .

"I will not speak scornfully or in derogation of any colleague in public. In any private conversation critical of a colleague, I will speak responsibly and temperately."

So even if you *are* sorely tempted to publicly disparage, diminish, or even outright demean the "less than fine", "less than competent", and "less than dedicated" individuals who *also* serve, or have served, on the MFC you could not do so without risking being sanctioned by the UUMA or MFC could you? Thankfully for U*Us U*U Worldwide The Emerson Avenger is not party to the UUMA's questionably ethical "Code Of Ethics" and thus TEA is *free* to publicly disparage, diminish, or on occasion knowingly and willfully demean those "less than fine", "less than competent", and "less than dedicated" individuals who serve, or have served, on the UUA's very aptly named Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee who are clearly snd unequivocally guilty of hypocritically allowing "less than excellent" U*U ministers to freely and irresponsibly disparage, diminish, and/or demean your's truly and rather too many other people. In fact, there is *really* no question that the MFC has less than competently, to say nothing of less than ethically. . . allowed intolerant and/or abusive U*U ministers to "get away with murder" in the form of character assassination of me and other "fine people".

Am I wrong about anything that I have said here Rev. Robinson?

If so please feel free to responsibly and temperately correct me.

After all I believe that those "less than fine", "less than competent", and "less than dedicated" individuals on the Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee sometimes need to be "less than responsibly" and "less than temperately" *corrected* when they have said something wrong. . . I mean, after all, if these "less than competent" MFC officials allow "less than polite" U*U ministers to dish it out they ought to be able to take it eh? :-)
