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.

The Ministerial Fellowship Committee Rules aka MFC Rules Are In Need Of A Major Overhaul

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

Take the word of representatives of the UUA's very aptly named Ministerial Fellowship Committee itself, as stated in the MFC's own official report to UUA Trustees during the October 2006 UUA Board Of Trustees meeting(s) well over four years ago. . .

At least in-so-far as was reported by UU clergy misconduct victims' advocate uugrrl in the 'Do or Do Not: a Chronology of UUs Addressing Clergy Misconduct'* post of her 'Speaking Truth To Power' blog, as archived on the UU Safety Net website -

Oct. 2006: The MFC Report to the Board said it “met … with UUA attorney, Kay Hodge, and Beth Miller, the new Director of the MPL, to talk about a number of on-going complaint cases and MFC rules and policies in responding to them. It was agreed that a major overhaul of MFC rules is needed.”

The MFC Report to the Board in question here *was* originally posted to the following URL on the UUA website and linked to in the aforementioned blog post but it seems to have been "memory holed" by the UUA -

I can't help but notice that the vast majority of the the online UUA documents that were linked to in this blog post about the UUA's are no longer available to be viewed at the URLs originally linked to.

I did manage to find the UUA's 'Resolution Toward Safe Congregations and Right Relations' at this new URL -

Restorative Justice for All - Unitarian Universalists Responding to Clergy Sexual Misconduct remains at the original URL.

Here is a new UUA website location for the Safe Congregation Handbook which would appear to make most if not all of its text available online free of charge.

More later. . .

* A blog post that might have been more realistically titled:

'Do or Do Not: a Chronology of UUs Miserably Failing To Adequately Address Clergy Misconduct'
