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.

Rev. James Ishmael Ford Encourages Unitarian*Universalist U*Us U*U World-wide To Walk Silly In Honour Of Monty Python Comedian John Cleese's Birthday

That's right U*Us, Unitarian*Universalist minister and usually quite sensible Bhuddist Sensei Rev. James Ishmael Ford is encouraging not only Unitarian*Universalist U*Us to do the Monty Python Silly Walk, but any and all of the readers of the Remember to Walk Silly post of his Monkey Mind blog. I dare say it might be fun to do The Silly Walk the next time I publicly protest against the belittling and maligning of my monotheistic* religious beliefs as being nothing but "silliness and fantasy" by the intoleramt and abusive, to say nothing of outright bigotted. . . fundamentalist atheist "Humanist" U*U minister Rev. Ray Drennan and various other U*U injustices and abuses.

Here is a YouTube video of John Cleese doing The Silly Walk at The Ministry Of Silly Walks in a Monty Python sketch -



Here is an *image* or two of Monty Python comedian John Cleese kicking outrageously hypocritical, and just plain silly. . . U*U butts with some judiciously applied Silly Walk high kicks etc.




And last, but by no means least. . . here are a couple of educational and entertaining U*UTube videos of former Unitarian*Universalist "Citizens' Police Officer" Peter Kohl, aka U*U COP, doing a rather silly walk in front of the Unitarian Church of Montreal that are almost as funny as videos of Monty Python alumni John Cleese doing The Silly Walk AFA*I*AC.*





"Walk silly, walk proud!" indeed. . .

I dare say that a whole lot of very silly overly proud Montreal Unitarian U*Us have walked silly and walked proud right past my picket signs Sunday after Sunday after Sunday for over a decade now. When will these outrageously hypocritical hubris filled U*Us learn to swallow their misplaced pride and stop walking so silly?

UUA Presidents To Say Nothing Of CUC Executive Directors Can And Do Say Some Mighty Foolish Things And Their Words *Do* Reflect On The U*U Movement

In a blog post titled 'What Is Wrong With UU the Way it Is? part 1' on his Pfarrer Streccius blog ChicagoLand conservative U*U blogger Bill Baar plays the congregational polity card by pretending that the words (if not actions. . .) of UUA Presidents do not reflect upon the greater U*U religious community. I disagree and am reproducing here the comment that I left on Bill's blog post.


"A UUA Prez can say some mighty foolish things, but that's on him/her; not you, me, or the wider UU."

Sorry Bill but I have to disagree with you on that point. You might as well say that the Pope can say some mighty foolish things, but that's on him; not the wider Roman Catholic religious community. For the record the President of the UUA is the *official spokesperson* of the UUA so what he or she says most certainly does reflect on not only the UUA butt The U*U Movement more generally. I might add that if U*Us do not speak out against the mighty foolish things that a UUA president, or indeed any number of other "less than excellent" U*U ministers, may say that their complicit silence does not reflect very well on The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™ either. . .

end quote

I may well add some examples of some of the mighty foolish things that have been said by UUA Presidents over the years to this blog post later. God knows that there already are a good number of examples of mighty foolish things that have been said by UUA Presidents, top level UUA staff and administrators, "less than excellent" U*U clergy, and other Unitarian*Universalist U*Us scattered throughout this blog but it can't hurt to repeat the mighty foolish things that some UUA Presidents have said here.

Thanks go out to Bill Baar for inspiring me to write a brand-spanking new parody song about foolish U*Us which will be titled -

These Foolish Things Remind Me Of U*U

*Resigned* CUC Executive Director Mary Bennett’s Big Fat U*U Corporate Identity Fi*ass*co Is As Hilari*ass*ly Funny As It Ever Was

Just saying. . . :-)

What was wrong with UU the way it was?

Was it *really* a well*advised corporate decision for former aka X CUC Executive Director Mary Bennett to ever so U*Unilaterally insert famous UU (now famous U*U) Kurt Vonnegut Jr.'s "picture of an asshole" between the twin cheeks of what *was* The UU Movement in a *deeply* misguided effort to symbolize the alleged inclusiveness of what is now known as The U*U Movement?

*I* think not. . .

Still ROTFLMU*UO again, and again, and again.

U ass*to*risk U Mary Bennett!

A Miranda Rights Warning For Montreal Unitarian U*Us And Other Unitarian*Universalist U*Us Who Say Things That Can Be Held Against Them

Having been read my Miranda rights a few times now as a result of having been falsely arrested on bogus criminal charges brought against me thanks to outrageously hypocritical Montreal Unitarian U*Us telling highly misleading half-truths and outright lies to Montreal police officers and Quebec Crown prosecutors etc. I believe that it is only fair that I provide Montreal Unitarian U*Us, and Unitarian*Universalist U*Us U*U World-wide, The Emerson Avenger's version of the Miranda Warning.

The standard minimalist Miranda Rights warning says -

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to speak to an attorney, and to have an attorney present during any questioning. If you cannot afford a lawyer, one will be provided for you at government expense.

There are of course variations of this basic Miranda warning but the above version is quite familiar to anyone who watches popular police/crime dramas on TV or has actually been arrested one or more times. The key parts are the right to remain silent and the related fact that anything that one does choose to say to the police can and will be used against you in a court of law.

Here is The Emerson Avenger's version of that basic Miranda Rights warning -

You U*Us have the right to remain silent. Anything you U*Us say can and will be used against you U*Us in the court of public opinion, if not an actual court of law. . .

The rest of the Miranda rights warning is redundant. My main point here is that the stupid and harmful things that outrageously hypocritical U*Us say can and will be held against them on The Emerson Avenger blog, elsewhere on the internet, and in other media where possible. Of course I have been doing just that for some time now but in the coming weeks and months I will be blogging about the highly misleading, outright false, perjurious and just plain paranoid things that Rev. Diane Rollert and other Montreal Unitarian U*Us said to Montreal police officers and Quebec Crown prosecutors, to say nothing of a Quebec Court judge or two. . . in their deeply misguided and outrageously hypocritical efforts to misuse and abuse the Canadian Criminal Code to over-ride my constitutionally guaranteed right to engage in peaceful public protest and force an end to my ongoing peaceful protest against the diverse injustices and abuses that these and other U*Us have either directly perpetrated or indirectly perpetuated. Hopefully by exposing and denouncing the false and misleading statements that Rev. Diane Rollert and other Montreal Unitarian U*Us made to the police etc. will dissuade these foolish U*Us from making any further false and misleading statements to the police and telling perjurious falsehoods and outright lies in court.

Rev. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang Is Truly Atrocious But Don't Take My Word For It. . .

Take her word for it. :-)

Sorry U*Us but I just couldn't help myself.

When will U*Us finally *real* in this wild and crazy U*U minister?




Needless the CHEEZY BUGGER refers to Rev. Victoria Weinstein's lurid "sodomy fantasy" imagining U.S. state senator Bill Napoli "anally impaled on the Statue of Liberty's torch". U*Us know the one, the "cheezy bugger" that "retired" Congregational Services Director Rev. Dr. Tracey Robinson-Harris and Ministerial Fellowship Committee Executive Secretary Rev. Beth Miller so negligently and complicitly allowed Rev. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang have with complete impunity. Oh well I guess these hypocritical U*U asshats can have Peacebang's "cheezy bugger" and eat it too. . . :-)

Giving credit where credit is due. . .

No doubt Rev. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang can relate. ;-)



The original I CAN HAS CHEEZBURGER LOLcat.

Does UUA President Peter Morales *Really* Believe In God? Or Is He Just Using The G Word Gratuitously And Just A Tad Disingenuously?

Based on various public statements that he has made over the years I was under the distinct impression that UUA President Peter Morales was an atheist Humanist U*U, and even a fairly strong atheist U*U at that. In fact, based on *some* of what President Peter Morales has said about his personal religious beliefs in the past I have reasonable grounds to believe that he may well have been one of those rather intolerant anti-religious atheists who former UUA President Rev. Dr. John A. Buehrens might describe as "obnoxious atheists" at one point of his "religious journey". So I was somewhat surprised to see President Morales quoted as saying -

"When we are connected with each other, we are one with God."

in a recent Beliefnet article titled -

'Tens of Thousands Rally in D.C. for Gay Rights'.

I believe that recently elected UUA President Rev. Peter Morales needs to clearly articulate just exactly what his beliefs about God are because, if he is indeed an atheist U*U aka a Humanist U*U, he should not be quite disingenuously, if not outright dishonestly. . . misleading the American public by making such public statements which leave uninformed people with the impression that Rev. Morales actually believes in God. To play current UUA President Rev. Peter Morales' own well documented words back at him -

“Either believe in God or don’t believe in God; don’t redefine God to mean something completely different.”

Nuff said?

The Unitarian Church Of Montreal Gets A Blast from The Past. . .


A blast from the past in the form of two decade old pickets signs that I found in my "archive" of old picket signs. The picket sign slogans on the two picket signs that would have been displayed when I first began protesting against the anti-religious intolerance and bigotry of Rev. Ray Drennan, Frank Greene, and other intolerant and abusive "fundamentalist atheist" "Humanist" U*Us as well as the fact that their deeply insulting and outright defamatory attacks on me and my monotheistic religious beliefs and practices had been effectively condoned by both the Unitarian Church of Montreal and the UUA.

As a result of moving recently I came across these two "archived" picket signs, as well as a few other older picket signs that had been "retired" and/or "archived" for various reasons, and decided to bring them along to an impromptu protest in front of the Unitarian Church of Montreal this morning. Rev. Diane Rollert was hosting a "Pathway to Membership" meeting for the purpose of "new member orientation" so that prospective new members of the so-called aka self-described Unitarian Church of Montreal could "learn about our Unitarian and Universalist heritage and the meaning of membership." I thought it was only fair to let these prospective brand-spanking new U*Us know a bit more about the rather unfortunate, to say nothing of outright disgraceful. . . religious "heritage" of the Unitarian Church of Montreal and what joining it might actually mean. I decided to protest at the tail end of this orientation meeting hoping that the prospective new U*Us would see my picket signs as they left the building.

As it turned out these prospective new members of the Unitarian Church of Montreal either left the building early, left rather late, left by the back door of this U*U "church", or never showed up in the first place. . . because not a single U*U soul exited the Unitarian Church of Montreal by the main entrance facing onto de Maisonneuve boulevard during the whole time that I was protesting in front of it. Not to worry though, since a fair number of cars, buses, and pedestrians passed and saw my peaceful public protest. Montreal Unitarian U*Us will get to see these picket signs again tomorrow morning. I would not be surprised if there were only a few prospective new members of the UCM in any case. I was actually quite surprised by the apparently rather low turn-out for the first official "church" service at the Unitarian Church of Montreal in early September. Not a whole lot of Montreal Unitarian U*Us brought any "vacation water" to the Unitarian Church of Montreal's Water Communion service this year and very few of the people who did show up for the service were unknown to me.

So let's go through the picket sign slogans in the photo.

The two museum pieces say -

A CHURCH THAT ACTS IN BAD FAITH

and

A CHURCH THAT WON'T WALK WHAT IT TALKS

They were displayed during the initial weeks and months of my protest in the spring and summer of 1998 over a decade ago and are every bit as pertinent today as they were in 1998. The leaders and congregation of the Unitarian Church of Montreal have repeatedly acted in bad faith in numerous ways and have obstinately refused to walk the talk of Unitarain*Universalism in their rather inhuman human relations with me to say nothing of other people.

The other picket signs slogans are more recent, but include some blasts from the past as well including my UNSAFE SECT? picket sign slogan that has been displayed in front of the Unitarian Church of Montreal for the better part of a decade now. In fact the UNSAFE SECT? picket sign slogan was displayed in front of UUA corporate headquarters at 25 Beacon Street in Boston during my May 2000 protest against the UUA's negligent and effectively complicit responses to my own clergy misconduct complaints as well as those of other people who have been victimized by U*U clergy in one way or another. UNSAFE SECT? is a perennial favorite with the public and I fondly remember Boston police officers giving me the thumbs up as they drove by my protest in front of 25 Beacon Street.

Does UUA President Peter Morales Have An Elevator Speech About Unitarian Universalism aka The U*U Movement aka *The* Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™?

It would appear that some person of inherent worth and dignity from Little Rock Arkansas was just asking Google this morning. . . :-)
