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.

Dan Cryer's 'Being Alive And Having to Die' Is A Fascinating Portrait Of Misconducting Unitarian Universalist Minister Rev. Dr. Forrest Church

According to Karen R. Long's book review of Dan Cryer's biography of Rev. Dr. Forrest Church which was published in Cleveland Ohio's 'The Plain Dealer' on Hallowe'en. . .

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 -

http://boyinthebands.com/archives/on-misconducting-ministers/

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.

Here is the URL for Rev. Scott Wells' 'UU clergy sexual misconduct roll call' blog post -
