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.

Rev. Wayne Arnason Chair Of The Ministerial Fellowship Committee Gets A Demand For Justice, Equity, And Compassion On The Second Day Of Chalica 2009

The following TEA blog post began as a comment on the 'Wayne Arnason for the MFC has thoughts to share' post of Rev. Christine Robinson's iminister blog. I will post a shorter but not sweeter version there.

For the broken Big Fat U*U Record Rev. Wayne Arnason is numbered amongst those "less than perfect" MFC administrators who failed, if not refused, to responsibly "*real* in" the intolerant and abusive "fundamentalist atheist" Humanist U*U minister Rev. Ray Drennan for the "less than polite" quality and tone of most of his intolerant and abusive conversation with me on Thor's Day November 9th 1996, to say nothing of Rev. Ray Drennan's other "less than excellent" demeaning and abusive behavior towards me and other people who Drennan somehow felt *entitled* to insult and defame, demonize and marginalize, or otherwise abuse.

Herewith my comment -

The Emerson Avenger has a few thoughts to share with MFC Chair Rev. Wayne Arnason on this second day of Chalica 2009 which, as U*Us must know, is dedicated to affirming and promoting the second U*U principles of justice, equity, and compassion in human relations.

Speaking of "the quality and tone of most of this conversation" Wayne. . .

When is the MFC aka Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee finally going to get around to responsibly reviewing the possibilities for a competency in common civility aka politeness and internet etiquette for "less than polite" U*U ministers? As you almost certainly know Wayne, I have now filed two clergy misconduct complaints as a result of "less than excellent" (to be polite. . .) U*U ministers who have not only been extremely rude to me and other people, but who have both engaged in what UUA President Peter Morales and many other people might call demonization and marginalization of me and other people. The fact of the matter is that I could have brought a few more similar complaints against a handful of "less than polite" U*U ministers, aka verbally abusive U*U clergy, who have deeply insulted and indeed demonized and marginalized me and other people on their blogs or elsewhere on the internet, sometimes under the cowardly cover of internet anonymity, but I held off doing so because I had zero confidence in the MFC's readiness, willingness, or indeed ability to "stand on the side of love" for me and other people who have been insulted and defamed, verbally and psychologically abused, or otherwise demonized and marginalized by "less than perfect" U*U ministers.

How is it possible Wayne that in the UUMA Guidelines U*U ministers pledge -

"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."

But, in my own very well-document experience and my ongoing observation of the "tiny, declining, fringe religion" known as The U*U Movement*, "less than polite" U*U ministers are happily allowed to speak very scornfully, or in deeply insulting and outright defamatory *derogation*, of pretty much *anyone* else they care to insult or otherwise verbally abuse in public and/or in private? It seems to me Wayne that *responsibly* holding "less than polite" U*U clergy accountable for speaking scornfully or in derogation of people (even if there may be some "just cause" for giving *some* of them a public or private "dressing down") would be something of a "critical success factor" for the UUA and The U*U Movement™ in general, and the UUMA and MFC in particular.

BTW I was just talking about this very subject aka issue earlier today, so thank you so much for presenting me with this wonderful opportunity aka *foil* to be very Green and recycle and reuse this UU A Way of Life blog comment in my ongoing efforts aka U*U Jihad to *reduce* the scornful and derogatory "insulting and defamatory language" and other verbal abuse that the UUA and the Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee it *owns* have apparently quite happily allowed "less than polite" U*U ministers to abusively dish out for well over a decade now. . .

When do I and other victims of non-sexual forms of clergy misconduct perpetrated by abusive U*U clergy and perpetuated by the negligent and effectively complicit responses of the MFC to out clergy misconduct complaints get *our* official UUA apology for being left lonely aka left alone, and/or confused, and/or afraid, and/or angry, and unquestionably betrayed and capital 'U' Un-ministered to by the Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee? When will the UUA provide some bona fide restorative justice to me and ALL other victims of ALL forms of clergy misconduct Wayne?

* If you find the terms "tiny, declining, fringe religion" and/or The U*U Movement to be "less than polite" ways to describe Unitarian*Universalism in general and the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations in particular please take the matter up with the prominent U*U clergy or prominent U*U lay leaders who originally came up with those terms. Current UUA President Rev. Peter Morales is of course the original owner of the descriptive phrase "tiny, declining, fringe religion" but I dare say that The Emerson Avenger™ is the proud "owner" of The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™, to say nothing of The Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee™. . . :-)
