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. Melissa Carvill-Ziemer Exposes Ersatz Unitarian*Universalist "Civil Disobedience" For The Attention Seeking Sham That It Really Is. . .

But don't take my word for it U*Us.

Take the word of Rev. Melissa Carvill-Ziemer as posted to to her Facebook page and reproduced verbatim in the 'Melissa's Witness' post of Rev. Chip Roush's 'The Yes Church' blog -

But those of us who were arrested in the protest were *keenly aware* that we were there by choice and that our confiement (sic) was temporary. We had the benefit of support from our fellow protestors. We knew there were people outside rallying and praying for us and that lawyers were working on our defense. . .

We *knew* we would soon be returning to our families, our jobs and our ordinary lives. We sang together and told jokes to pass the time. In the morning we prayed. Holding hands we offered a prayer of gratitude for every single person who dares, in whatever way they are able, to take a stand on the side of love. And we offered a prayer of humility, knowing that Latinos/Latinas and other people of color would continue to targeted with increasing vigilance here in AZ after we all go home.

RE: "attention seeking sham"

Awesome.

I call them "media whores" but it adds up to the same thing.

Personally, I think there's an entire group of people that these UUs are ignoring, but because it's not politically correct or the sexy issue of the month, no one cares: the American working class and working poor. I'm starting to think that like most churchy people, UUs are economic elitists. Have you observed this too Robin, or am I off base here?

I also use the term "media whores" LBD but chose not to in this instance. Not that this politically incorrect description of those who engage in ersatz "civil disobedience", not just U*Us BTW. . . is not applicable here. There is really no question that UUA President Peter Morales amd other U*U religious leaders were seeking some free publicity for themselves and the "tiny, declining, fringe religion" known as The U*U Movement with their sham "civil disobedience" in Phoenix AZ.

I do not think that you are "off-base" in your suspicion that U*Us are largely ignoring the American working class and working poor. I and others have spoken about this apparent problem in the past. Thanks for your comment and feel free to weigh in again.
