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.

The Few. . . The Proud. . . The Marines! - U.S. Marine Corps Officers And "Less Than Ethical" Big Fat U*U Ministers - What's The Connection?

For a variety of reasons, not the least of them being that U*Us in general, and U*U ministers in particular, are definitely *few* and quite regrettably all too often overweeningly proud aka filled with hubris. . . I have been meaning to lampU*Un the U.S. Marines' recruiting slogan -

The Few. The Proud. The Marines.

on this blog for some time now. . .

Rev. Earl Koteen, the once and future anonymous author of the 'Calling Ministers' blog, just gave me the perfect opportunity to finally get around to using *that* ammunition against overly prideful and hubris filled U*Us today. In a quite revealing blog post en*titled 'Marine Corps Officers & UU Ministers' Rev. Earl UU Koteen compares U.S. Marine Corps officers with Big Fat U*U ministers, most of whom wouldn`t last a week in the United States Marine Corps, or any other country's Marines, if their life depended on it. . . Quite frankly I expect that at least a few proud Marines, U.S. Marines and otherwise, will be utterly appalled that Rev. Earl Koteen actually dared to compare Big Fat U*U ministers, especially those rather pathetic "less than excellent" ones that I blog about here, to U.S. Marine Corps officers. Come to think of it. . . a few U*U ministers might be equally appalled at being compared to U.S. Marine Corps officers in light of their anti-military stances.

Without further ado here is a typo corrected version of the comment that I submitted to Rev. Earl W. Koteen's "moderated" aka *censored* 'Calling Ministers' blog earlier today -

The Few.

The Loud.

The U*U Maroons.

"The Marines Corps officer corps is a very tight-knit, caring bunch. They literally are willing to lay down their lives for one another. They certainly do not wish to badmouth one another in fitness reports. Giving nearly everyone outstanding ratings is one way of recognizing the contributions of these hard working, talented, and dedicated individuals. When officers not yet eligible for retirement do need to work on their growing edges, the outstanding ratings demonstrate the respect in which they are held and the confidence that they have the capacity to make the needed changes."

Why am I not surprised to learn that you support the unethical UUA "ethos" of evaluation of U*U ministers that *pretends* that "less than excellent" U*U ministers, indeed pathetic mediocrities who give U*Uism a bad name. . . are "outstanding" Earl?

Don't confuse U*U ministers with the U.S. Marines Earl. Most U*U ministers, even the truly "outstanding ones" (of which there are *very* few), wouldn't last a week in the Marines.

Adios My Friend*,

In that Rev. Earl Koteen's very revealing 'Calling Ministers' blog post about the culture of *pretending* that "less than excellent" U*U ministers, aka pathetically if not pathologically unprofessional U*U ministers, are actually "outstanding" (or at least that their intolerant and abusive, or otherwise "less than professional" unbecoming conduct is "within the appropriate guidelines of ministerial leadership" or otherwise acceptable to the UUA and MFC) there will definitely be some further ado about this issue, either in this blog post or in some brand-spanking new TEA blog posts down the road a bit. . . Rev. Earl Koteen, and other "less than excellent" U*U ministers who actually approve of the "less than ethical" *ethos* of U*U ministers that effectively prohibits U*U ministers from badmouthing one another in "fitness reports" etc., while allowing them to egregiously badmouth pretty much anyone else these ever to tight-knit and caring U*U clerics *care* to badmouth. . . and thus leads to U*U "pastors" getting away with all kinds of "murder", including but by no means limited to harmful and damaging character assassination of me and other people, had better get braced for a U.S. Marine Corps style Big Fat U*U Ass Chewing courtesy of The Emerson Avenger.

Gotta love those moronic U*U Maroons who are ever so willing to lay down their hypocritical U*U asses for one another. . .

No U*Us?

God forbid that any U*U minister should ever "badmouth" another U*U minister aka a professional colleague aka a croney. . . who thoroughly deserves a dressing down for "less than perfect" behavior of one kind or another.

Do enjoy this U*UTube video of a Marine Corps Drill Instructor giving an ass chewing aka U*U chewing to a young recruit.

Makes the dreaded Emerson Avenger look like a sweet little pussycat doesn't he? :-)

More later. . .
