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.

Consider What You're Still Paying For U*Us. . .

U*U consultant Mike Durral urges his readers not to stay at hotels that support the porno industry by having adult movies on TV on the Consider What You're Paying For post of his Ten Minutes or Less blog that is intended to provide "Helpful hints for busy clergy and lay leaders."

Mike Durral goes on to say -

Ask before you make a reservation. Do not be swayed by the argument that "the market demands it." This is complete hogwash.

Mike invites readers comments by saying that -

"Readers are welcome to add their own ideas about things that work well in church."

So I took him at his word and posted the following "Eat Your Words Diet" style comment to Mike's currently unmoderated blog -

I urge your readers not to pray in churches that support pornographic ministry by having U*U preachers share their lurid sodomy fantasies on their blogs. Ask the UUA before you go to church on Sunday. Do not be swayed by the argument that "the minister’s blog is anonymous" thus "she is free to express her opinions and to do so outside of her professional role as a minister serving a congregation." This is complete hogwash courtesy of "retired" Congregational Services director Rev. Dr. Tracey Robinson-Harris and seconded by Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee Executive Secretary Rev. Beth Miller.

For the record I don't *really* advocate an actual boycott of U*U churches just because the UUA happily allows a big fat U*U "loose canon" (as it were) to have her sodomy fantasy and eat it too. . . but I do think that the UUA *really* needs to change its rather shitty tune about such unbecoming conduct on the part of U*U ministers.

The of course there is actual clergy sexual misconduct committed by U*U ministers, some of which might well provide some quite interesting adult video material. . . but it seems to me that if U*U lay person Mike Durrel can suggest that U*Us should boycott hotels that provide pornographic films as part of their service to the public then he and other like-minded U*U lay people *might* want to apply the same principle to the UUA and/or individual U*U churches which not only allow U*U ministers to post porngraphic material to their blogs, but have also done little or nothing to hold U*U ministers accountable when they have engaged in diverse forms of clergy sexual misconduct.

No U*Us?

So U*Us please do seriously consider what you're still paying for, and will continue to pay for for some time yet. . . as a result individual U*U churches and the UUA doing little or nothing to hold U*U ministers accountable for their pornographic tirades on their blogs, or much more serious unbecoming conduct including, but not limited to, some quite serious clergy sexual misconduct.

Come to think of it. . . didn't it cost U*Us at least one church membership at the Arlington Street Church in Boston as a result of its allowing Mr. U*U BDSM Desmond Ravenstone to go around cracking his big fat U*U bullwhip in said U*U "church"?

Isn't that pretty much a live BDSM show in a U*U "church"?

Kinda makes adult videos in hotel rooms seem kinda lame. . .

No U*Us?

Sometimes I think U*Us really are "crackers" as in *crazy* when they allow U*U lay people and/or U*U clergy to say and do things that most people would agree are highly questionable at best and seriously harmful and damaging at worst.

So please do consider this Emerson Avenger blog post to provide some more helpful hints for busy clergy and lay leaders. . .

Not that I haven't been providing all kinds of helpful hints for busy U*U clergy and lay leaders for the better part of 15 years now.
