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.

Rev. Debra Haffner Inadvertently Kicks UUA President Peter Morales In The Balls For His Failure To Apologize To Victims Of U*U Clergy Misconduct

Rev. Debra W. Haffner of the Religious Institute has publicly called upon Roman Catholic Pope Benedict XVI to publicly apologize "to those the Church has hurt" in her 'The Pope on Twitter: Here's What I'd Like to Read' blog post. Interestingly enough Rev. Haffner has previously called upon UUA President Peter Morales to publicly apologize to *some* of those whom the Unitarian Universalist Church has hurt, i.e. ALL victims of clergy misconduct committed by "less than perfect" Unitarian Universalist ministers, but President Morales has apparently refused to do so to date. . .

Here is the comment that I just submitted to Rev. Debra Haffner's "moderated" 'Sexuality and Religion: What's the Connection?' blog -

"I'm profoundly sorry to those the Church has hurt."

Personally I would like to see UUA President Peter Morales say this to the numerous people that the Unitarian Universalist "church" has hurt in various ways including, but by no means limited to, victims of UU clergy misconduct of various kinds.

Didn't you yourself recommend that the UUA -

"Have President (Morales) issue (a) broad-based statement and *apology* to victims of misconduct at GA 2010 and announce new procedures or task force."

in your 'Toward a Sexually Healthy and Responsible Unitarian Universalist Association' report?

I see no evidence whatsoever of UUA President Peter Morales making any such statement or apology at either the 2010 UUA GA or the 2011 UUA GA.

Apparently President Morales, to say nothing of the UUA more generally. . . just can't bring themselves to genuinely "stand on the side of love" for victims of UU clergy misconduct, or provide any real and tangible restorative justice for ALL victims of UU clergy misconduct. (typo corrected)

Needless to say, I could go on too Rev. Haffner. . .

And I am very happy to report that Rev. Debra Haffner seemed quite happy to post my critical comment as may be seen below. . .
