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

My Photo
Location: Montreal, Quebec, Canada

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.

Is Rev. Hank Peirce The Very Model Of Self-Righteous U*U Clergy And Big Fat U*U Hubris?

Reverend Doctor*ed Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang is standing on the side of love for the undoctored version of above "clergy image" of Rev. Hank Peirce of the Unitarian*Universalist Church of Medford. Some of the readers of her Peacebang's Beauty Tips For Ministers blog have some reservations about this particular "clergy image" and I tend to agree with their take on it. . .

Eleanorjane commented -

Ooh, no! The word ‘hubris’ comes to mind. It looks like he’s pretending to be Moses or something. . .

susanp responded -

You know, I have to say I’m with Eleanorejane — without knowing him personally that picture channels every self-righteous colleague I ever met. . .

end quotes

I am not quite sure what Eleanorjane and susanp would think of *this* Big Fat U*U Clergy Image of Rev. Hank Peirce, courtesy of UU World editor Christopher Walton, but it does seem to contrast significantly with the image that brought hubris and self-righteousness to their minds and a famous Carl Jung quote to my mind. . .

Hank can be very tongue in cheek. The first photo was a candid snapshot in a field en route to a wedding. The second is a very sarcastic photo, being that Hank is straight edge. He does not, nor has he ever, drank, smoked, done drugs, etc. He is really a very respectable, standup guy who does his job well. It would truly be a shame to judge such a decent human being based on a few comedic photos taken out of context.

Hi Whitney,

Thanks for your comment. I am well aware that the "first photo was a candid snapshot in a field en route to a wedding". I am also well aware that the second photo was staged by UU World editor Chris Walton. I am not judging Rev. Hank Peirce as a person in this blog post. I am poking fun at U*Us in general, and *the* Reverend Doctor Victoria Weinstein aka Vicki The Impaler in particular. . . with respect to the "clergy image" that Rev. Dr. Vicki Weinstein's evil twin sister Peacebang believes is so important.

I would be very happy to share a beer or two with Hank if he were not "straight-edge".
