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: http://revelationisnotsealed.homestead.com - 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: http://creationday.homestead.com - 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.

Is Rev. Victoria Weinstein A BiPolar Bear As It Were? That Is To Say. . . Is The Mind Of Peacebang As Depressive As It Is Manic?

Peacebang aka Rev. Victoria Weinstein just went into a "hibernation" brought on by a "post holiday slump" within a day of quite typically manically attacking some hapless FedEx employees who weren't up to her stU*Uperficial standards of "beauty", as is her U*Unfortunate habit aka Big Fat U*U Wont that the UUA's Ministerial *Fellowship* Community* apparently approve of. . .

Here is a new and somewhat improved version of a comment that I attempted to post to Peacebang's 'Hibernating' post on her Peacebang's Beauty Tips For Ministers blog with some additional embedded hyperlinks -

"Hibernating" my U*U. . .

"Post holiday slump" eh?

Can U*Us say *depression*?

Can U*Us say "manic depression" aka bipolar disorder?

As in "The manic mind of the minister" who snarkily attacks people and then almost immediately goes into the "silent withdrawal" of a "post holiday slump". . .

Maybe Panic Anxiety Disorder isn't the only mental illness Peacebang suffers from.

Maybe Peacebang could use some "professional help".

No I am not "diagnosing" Rev. Victoria Weinstein with yet another mental illness beyond the one which she has already been diagnosed as suffering from because I am not asserting with any certainty that she does suffer from manic depression aka bipolar disorder, but if I was to learn one day that "the manic mind" of Peacebang has in fact been diagnosed as suffering from bipolar disorder by competent mental health profesionals I for one would not be the least bit surprised. What was it that Rev. Dan Hotchkiss said on 'The cost of credentialing "mistakes"' post of Rev. Christine Robinson's iminister blog not so long ago?

The settlement "mistakes" that I think of as terribly costly and damaging, the ones which come up over and over again in histories of congregations are not simple matters of lack of skill or focus, they are instead matters of poor ministerial mental health, personality disorder, leadership style, lack of emotional intelligence, and inability to maintain good boundaries. (All of these problems can become predominant in the lay leadership of a congregation, which also causes settlement failures but that's another subject.) It may be that others have a different take on this issue, but if I could wave my magic wand, I'd give us a foolproof tool for weeding out candidates with the above issues. Lacking the magic wand, I'd focus ministerial credentialing on doing a better job on this part of the score.



* "Ministerial *Fellowship* Community" was an unintended typographical error but "the shoe fits" to the hypocritical U*U *behind* of the UUA's Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee so the MFC will just have to grin and *bear* it for this TEA blog post.
