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.

UUA Moderator Gini Courter Gets An Image Investigation Courtesy Of Peacebang aka Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein With A Little Bit Of Help From TEA. . .

Image Investigation: UUA Moderator Gini Courter

August 17, 2011 on 12:00 am In Big Fat U*U Cultural Commentary

This interests me a lot. Here’s an image of UUA Moderator Gini Courter, a Unitarian Universalist from Flint, Michigan. Someone obviously wants her to Stand On The Side Of Love for U*U clergy misconduct victims.

Here’s the Ad-Busted photo they’ve put out:

Stern visage, granny glasses, boyish hair. All buttoned up. Whether her mis*handlers intend it or not, she reminds me of none other than Carrie Nation, the famous Temperance Crusader:

On one hand, nothing frivolous about it: no blow-dried pretty girl stuff going on there. On the other hand, not a welcoming image. Not a relational expression, and because she looks quite grimly determined, she does not seem vibrant or energized. She looks like a throwback to the Victorian Era, in fact.

Here’s UUA Moderator Gini Courter again. I should have said earlier that I think she’s AWESOME and I loved her book, Microsoft Office 97: No Experience Required. Look how much more approachable and human she looks here:

If I was consulting with Gini I would insist that we find an image with a more confident gaze, as I think her expression is a bit deer-in-the-headlights for a confident leader, but they’re definitely on the right track there.

See how unbelievably different an image we project through choosing wisely from among photo images thoughtfully provided by the UUA?
