Dan Cryer's 'Being Alive And Having to Die' Is A Fascinating Portrait Of Misconducting Unitarian Universalist Minister Rev. Dr. Forrest Church
Here is the comment that I just successfully posted in response to this book review -
It is not really all that surprising that Rev. Dr. Forrest Church ass-erted that he was proud of former U.S. President William Jefferson Clinton in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Rev. Dr. Forrest Church's "1991 adultery with a wealthy, fetching congregant", which "doomed two marriages, damaged four children", and caused considerable harm to the congregation of All Souls Unitarian Universalist Church in Manhattan, was by no means the only adultery that he engaged in if we are to believe Rev. Daniel Harper's online review of Dan Cryer's biography. I would not be the least bit surprised to learn that this "senator's son" said something quite similar to former UUA President Rev. William G. Sinkford aka Bill Sinkford in the wake of his own adulterous encounter(s) that allegedly resulted in a formal clergy sexual misconduct complaint being brought against him by another UU minister and a subsequent acrimonious divorce.
I would suggest that anyone interested in clergy sexual misconduct Unitarian Universalist style should read Rev. Dan Harper's "book review" entitled 'A portrait of the minister as a misconductor' here -
Rev. Scott Well's follow-up blog post is worth a read too -
as is his older misleadingly titled 'UU clergy sexual misconduct roll call' which is nothing of the sort in that it does not name a single Unitarian Universalist minister who has been accused of clergy sexual misconduct.
Sadly the Unitarian Universalist religious community has a long and shameful history of doing little or nothing to hold its misconducting ministers accountable for the clergy misconduct be it clergy sexual misconduct or some other form of misconduct.
