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. Kit Ketcham Wishes There Was A Little More Moral Courage In The World Today

Needless to say I concur.

Here is the comment that I just submitted in response to Rev. Kit Ketcham's self-described "rant" titled -

'Moral Courage - Who Has It And What Does It Mean?'

I just wish there was a little more moral courage in the U*U World today. It is not without some "reasonable grounds" and "just cause" that I display a picket sign slogan saying -


in front of a U*U church that has displayed a dearth of ethical integrity and moral courage for well over a decade now. The picket sign slogan has much broader application in the U*U World and *could* be justifiably displayed in front of 25 Beacon Street in Boston.

Clearly *my* civil rights are not important to Montreal Unitarian U*Us or they would not have misused and abused the Canadian Criminal Code a couple of times now to try and prevent me from exercising my right to peaceful public protest against their lack of moral courage and other serious failings. In fact tomorrow will mark the 9th anniversary of my false arrest on trumped up criminal charges of "disturbing the order and solemnity" of "worship" at the Unitarian Church of Montreal on December 4th 2000. Here is the letter to the editor that I wrote in response to The Montreal Mirror article which did not *reflect* very well on "less than ethical" Montreal Unitarians.

I look forward to the day that Montreal Unitarians, and the UUA and MFC, finally get around to living up to the letter and the spirit of this Wayside Pulpit bon mot -

"Our heads are round so that thoughts can change direction."*

At present they are quite stubbornly behaving like what Québecois call "têtes carrés". . .

* Or something like that anyway.

Here is the follow-up comment I just submitted in response to Rev. Ketchum's decision to censor my critical comment -

Fair enough Ms. Kitty.

Need I point out that I would not feel the need to repeatedly rerun my complaints* if "less than ethical" Unitarian*Universalists in Montreal and Boston gathered up the moral courage required to responsibly acknowledge their numerous "mistakes" and take steps to correct them?

What is the point of U*Us in general, and U*U clergy in particular. . . "affirming and promoting" justice, equity, and compassion in human relations if U*Us lack the moral courage to actually practice justice, equity, and compassion in human relations by responding to internal U*U injustices and abuses with some genuine justice, if not compassion?

* Please note that complaints plural
