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.

Plus Ça Change Plus C'est La Même Chose aka Boston Unitarian Kicks Rich, Fashionable, Thoughtless Unitarian*Universalist U*Us In The Balls. . .

Apparently with a little help from his quite literally corpse-cold Unitarian friend famous Unitarian Rev. William Ellery Channing. :-)

Here is the pertinent part of Rev. William Ellery Channing's letter to Henry Ware Jr. that Boston Unitarian posted about -

"I do not wish to see a Unitarian Society in New York, made up of rich, fashionable, thoughtless people. I wish friends and adherents, who will be hearty and earnest; and I believe these qualities may be found mainly in the middling classes. Can no inquiry be instituted among these to learn whether they are favorably disposed to your object?"

And here is the (im)pertinent comment that I just submitted to Boston Unitarian's 'Middling Classes' blog post which addresses one of my issues with *The* Tiny Decling Fringe Religion™ aka The U*U Movement aka Unitarian*Universalism -

Forgive me for saying so Boston Unitarian, but this letter written by William Ellery Channing would seem to indicate that the problem of "rich, fashionable, thoughtless people" choosing the fate of joining the Unitarian Church, and what is now known as The U*U Movement, goes back at least a couple of centuries.

Plus ça change. . . ;-)
