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.

Unitarian Universalist Classism Sucks U*U

I am not going to go into a big long spiel about the classism, to say nothing of the misplaced snobbish elitism. . . that is quite rampant in the Unitarian Universalist religious community. I have said a thing or two about Unitarian*Universalist classism in the past and a certain number of U*U bloggers have blogged about the "sin" of U*U classism as well. I will simply direct readers to the most recent blog post about U*U classism en*titled 'Classism in my Beloved Community' on the Syracusan in Seattle blog of Christine Leigh and cross-post the comment I just posted to it below -

Hmmmm. . .

Maybe I will add a picket sign slogan saying -

UNITARIAN
UNIVERSALIST
CLASSISM
SUCKS U*U

to the arse*nal of picket signs that I display infront of the Unitarian Church of Montreal.

Interestingly enough the Unitarian Church of Montreal has been trying to recruit "fresh blood" from Montreal universities such as Concordia and McGill for years now. Recently they adopted an interesting recruiting tactic which consisted of offering completely free entry to classical concerts held in the church sanctuary which normally cost $20 for adults. . .

I have been a Unitarian, or so I thought for around three to four years. After a horrific introduction to the christian faith, UU seemed the best moral avenue. I am in Kansas City, and have a family that is bi racial which was a golden ticket into this ridiculous church at least until they realized we were not affluent.....I have never been around so many classicist, specifically racist people in my life....thank you for posting this because for awhile there, I thought I was being very harsh and judgmental.

Dare I say,

"You're welcome."

Cody? ;-)

You were probably just being honest. . .
