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.

A Free And Responsible Search For Truth And Meaning And Outrageously Hypocritical Unitarian Universalist U*Us - What's The Connection?

It never ceases to amaze me how stunning hypocritical Unitarian Universalists not only obstinately refuse to honor and uphold the letter and the spirit of the fourth principle of Unitarian Universalism, but even go to considerable lengths to prevent other people from engaging in a genuinely free and responsible search for Truth and Meaning. Not to mention the fact that rather too many Unitarian*Universalist U*Us seem only too happy to tell all kinds of Big Fat U*U Lies, or otherwise knowingly and willfully misrepresent the Objective Capital 'T' Truth with various forms of Big Fat U*U Spin. . .

An excellent *example* of this kind of hypocritical behavior on the part Unitarian Universalists was provided this Sunday by a young female member of the Unitarian Church of Montreal as I was engaging in my "alternative spiritual practice" aka "prophetic work" of peacefully protesting against diverse U*U injustices, abuses and hypocrisies in front of this self-described "Unitarian Church". A group of three young men had stopped to ask me about my protest and were asking me a variety questions, including some questions about specific picket sign slogans, which I was answering in my usual truthful and forthright manner. In short, these three young men were actually engaged in a free and reasonably responsible search for the truth and meaning of my protest in general, and my picket sign slogans in particular, when a young female Montreal Unitarian Universalist U*U marched up to us and issued the following "command" to these three young men -

"Don't listen to this guy. He's been protesting (against) our church for 20 years or so."

So. . . as I soon pointed out to this not so bright young U*U hypocrite.

She made a mockery of the fourth principle of Unitarian Universalism by telling these three young men not to listen to me. She effectively told these men to cease and desist from the free and reasonably responsible search for truth and meaning that they were engaged in prior to her interruption of our conversation. Above and beyond *that* flagrant disregard for the fourth principle, this Montreal Unitarian U*U Youth told a Big Fat U*U Exaggeration aka a Big Fat U*U Falsehood in telling them that I had been protesting in front of the Unitarian Church of Montreal for "twenty years or so". . . The readily verifiable Objective Truth about my conscientious objection to U*U injustices, abuses, and hypocrisy in the form of peaceful public protest is that the thirteenth anniversary of what one U*U minister calls my "alternative spiritual practice", and I like to call my Sunday Constitutional, is coming up in a couple of months. So this young U*U had added about 50% to the number of years that I have been publicly protesting.

The Montreal Mirror article about the beginning of my peaceful public protest in front of the Unitarian Church of Montreal not inappropriately titled 'Spitting In God's Eye' was published in June of 1998, just a few weeks after I initiated what another respected Unitarian Universalist minister recently called my "prophetic work". Little did I know at the time just what a Big Fat U*U Protest my "alternative spiritual practice" of going to church *outside* of the so-called Unitarian Church of Montreal would become. . . When I first began protesting I expected the protest to last a few weeks, or at worst a few months, before Montreal Unitarians came to their senses and changed their ways. I had no idea just how extraordinarily stubbornly Montreal Unitarian U*Us, and Unitarian Universalists more generally, would resist responsibly confessing to their glaringly obvious sins of commission and sins of omission, and then seeking reconciliation with me. Talk about "a stiff necked and stubborn people". . .

So the sad fact of the matter is, that even if my peaceful public protest against U*U injustices, abuses, and hypocrisy had in fact been going on for twenty years as this young woman alleged, that would in no way diminish the Truth and Meaning of my protest and only serve to very publicly *demonstrate* what an incredibly pigheaded group of people Montreal Unitarians are.

Needless to say I challenged this hypocritical U*U youth's assertion by saying -

"Twenty years? You're funny. Isn't a free and responsible search for truth and meaning one of your principles?"

To which she responded -

"It is."

I then asked -

"Have you looked into why I am here?"

You tell these guys not to listen to me. That is in direct contradiction to your principle about a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. These guys are actually engaging in a free and responsible search for truth and meaning. They're asking you questions. So you're being a hypocrite when you tell them not to listen to me."

To which see quite promisingly responded -

"Fair point."

One of the young men then asked her -

"What do you believe in?"

To which she responded -

"We believe in the Seven Principles."

Upon which I said -

"One of which she made a mockery of."

To which she responded -

"OK I'm sorry, that's a fair point."

Imagine that U*Us!

A Montreal Unitarian Universalist not only responsibly acknowledging that I actually had "a fair point" in accusing her of disregarding and/or violating the fourth principle of The U*U Movement but even uttering that magic phrase -

"I'm sorry."

More on this later. . .
