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. Amy Zucker Morgenstern And How Unitarian Universalists aka U*Us Go About Ritualizing Their Dominance Struggles. . . What's The Connection?

In the 'Fighting Right' post of Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern 'Sermons In Stones' blog, Rev. Morgenstern plays off of this LOLcats photo of two cats fighting, aka a cat-fight. . . to caution people against getting into fights that they cannot extract themselves from.

Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern concludes her brief blog post thus -

We humans have some ways of ritualizing our dominance struggles – Go Giants! – but we still have a lot to learn from “the lower animals” like the cat on the right about how to extract ourselves from a fight before we, and a lot of other people, get killed.

end quote

I am not sure if Rev. Morgenstern is using the word "killed" literally, figuratively, or both. I suspect however that she is using that word only in its literal sense and that it may not have occurred to her how "lots of other people" may be "killed" in the figurative sense of the word in "dominance struggles" that they fail or refuse to de-escalate.

FWIW Here is the comment that I just *submitted* to the 'Fighting Right' post of Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern's moderated 'Sermons in Stones' blog. Hopefully Amy will have the good sense to post that comment rather than censor and suppress it -

Constructive Feedback

U*U"re doing it wrong. :-)

Come to think of it the U*UTube video linked above shows how certain deeply misguided U*Us go about ritualizing *their* dominance struggles. . .

end quote

To save U*Us the trouble of following that link here is the U*UTube video of a self-described U*U "Citizen's Police Officer" aka U*U COP engaging in one form of Unitarian*Universalist Dominance Struggle Ritual -



As an added bonus I am providing another link to an earlier TEA post that shows Rev. Melissa Carvill-Ziemer engaging in a somewhat different aka *alternative* U*U Dominance Struggle Ritual known as U*U BDSM. :-)

This BTW is what is *figuratively* known as "killing two birds with one stone". . .

I can't help but wonder when U*Us will finally have the good sense to follow Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern's advice and back down, to say nothing of throw in the proverbial towel?
