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

My Photo
Location: Montreal, Quebec, Canada

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.

The Minneapolis Post Web Site Moderator Believes That The Emerson Avenger Provides Civil, Thought-Provoking And High-Quality Public Discussion

According to the disclaimer below Rev. Meg Riley's 'Open Letter To Senator Al Franken' the Minneapolis Post intend that their comment area is "to be used by our readers as a place for civil, thought-provoking and high-quality public discussion." It goes on to say, "In order to achieve this, MinnPost requires that all commenters register and post comments with their actual names and place of residence." I guess that in that the moderator of the MinnPost website felt that my comment responding to Rev. Meg Riley's 'Open Letter' was worthy of publication, as opposed to being censored and suppressed as so many U*Us would do. . . that it met the Minneapolis Post's standards for "civil, thought-provoking and high-quality public discussion."

Many outrageously hypocritical U*Us, including UUA list-serve moderators like Deborah Weiner, would have *pretended* that my critical comment was a "personal attack" on Rev. Meg Riley in order to justify suppressing that comment, but the MinnPost website moderator apparently did not believe that my critical comment constituted a "personal attack" on Rev. Riley either since the Minneapolis Post "does not permit the use of foul language, personal attacks or the use of language that may be libelous or interpreted as inciting hate or sexual harassment. User comments are reviewed by moderators to ensure that comments meet these standards and adhere to MinnPost's terms of use and privacy policy."

Unlike so many of the Unitarian*Universalists I know, the moderator of the Minneapolis Post website seems to believe that my critical comment deserved to be read by the general public so that they may make up their own minds about its truth and meaning. . .
