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.

James Luther Adams' Five Smooth Stones Of Liberalism Get Thrown Right Between The Eyes Of The Hypocritical Unitarian Universalist Goliath. . .

Assuming of course that Rev. Cynthia Landrum, Minister of the Universalist Unitarian Church of East Liberty in Clarklake, Michigan, deigns to publish the critical comment reproduced below that I just submitted to the Five Smooth Stones post of her Rev. Cyn blog. Rev. Landrum has not let me down yet, having published pretty much every single comment that I have submitted to her moderated blog, so I have very reasonable grounds to believe that she will publish this "stone throwing" comment -


Love may well be missing from Tony Lorenzen's attempt to reduce James Luther Adams' "Five Stones" to five words but it is by no means missing from James Luther Adams' original formulation.

What part of -

"Religious liberalism affirms the moral obligation to direct one's effort toward the establishment of a just and *loving* community."

Did you both fail to understand?

Forgive me for getting all prophetic on you and playing a stone throwing David to the U*U Goliath (i.e. Speaking readily provable Truth to U*U abuse of power) but, in my experience and observation, the Unitarian Universalist religious community has repeatedly made a total mockery of the first three of James Luther Adam's "Five Smooth Stones" of liberalism, and worse. . . obstinately insists on continuing to do so. This is True not only in terms of how Unitarian*Universalists have behaved towards me over the last decade and a half but how they have behaved towards many other people, including rather too many victims of U*U clergy misconduct. It seems to me that Unitarian Universalists have all but completely abdicated their moral obligation to direct their effort(s) toward the establishment of a just and loving community when it comes to providing genuine and tangible restorative justice to victims of U*U clergy misconduct.
