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.

How *The* Reverend Doctor Kelly Murphy Mason Sucks & Blows At The Same Time. . .

A free and responsible Google search for the Truth & meaning of the phrase "suck(s) and blow(s) at the same time" reveals that its meaning is somewhat obscure to say the least. That being said, *I* always thought that asserting that someone "sucks and blows at the same time" meant that they were two-faced hypocrites who were guilty of contradicting their claimed principles and ideals with diametrically opposite words and actions (or indeed complicit silence and negligent inaction. . .) at pretty much the same time that they had spouted their hypocrisy. And *that* U*Us is how *the* Reverend Doctor Kelly Murphy Mason, Pastoral Counselor at Union Theological Seminary in New York, sucks and blows at the same time AFA*I*AC. . .

I will now proceed to walk Unitarian Universalists aka U*Us through exactly how, at least according to *that* definition of the meaning of the phrase "suck(s) and blow(s) at the same time", *the* Reverend Doctor Kelly Murphy Mason sucked and blowed at pretty much the same time on her Twitter account last week.

On #TheologicalThursday November 10th, in response to this Tweet by Rev. Roger Butts of High Plains Unitarian Universalist Church in Colorado Springs, *the* Reverend Doctor Kelly Murphy Mason Tweeted -

So try to be hospitable to the other and see all difference as grace? That sounds good to me, @RogerButts and @revnaomi #TheologicalThursday


I responded to Rev. Dr. Kelly Murphy Mason's somewhat questionable Tweet with the following cautionary Tweet -

It *is* possible to take that too far. Indeed the word "all" takes it too far. Certain differences are far from #grace.


Hopefully it is not necessary to explain to most people of intelligence and conscience how it is "less than wise" to "see ALL difference as grace" and how a good number of differences are indeed anything but grace. . .

I followed up that terse*, but none-the-less quite civil, cautionary Tweet with a second Tweet cautioning against the unjustified and/or excessive "othering" of "others" -

The whole business of #othering "others" is questionable. Often the "other" is not all that different from you & yours.


So how did Rev. Dr. Kelly Murphy Mason respond to those two little Tweets of mine U*Us ask? Well she certainly didn't enter into a genuinely free and responsible search for the Truth and meaning of those two Tweets, or I probably would not be blogging about how the not so good Reverend Doctor sucks and blows at the same time would I U*Us? Quite regrettably Rev. Dr. Kelly Murphy Mason rather boldly sucked and blowed at pretty much the same time by all but totally contradicting what she had said in the Tweet that I was responding to by most ironically (and more than a little bit hypocritically. . .) Tweeting the following "less than hospitable" Tweet that publicly shunned and ostracized aka "othered" your's truly -

@RobinEdgar NB: User RobinEdgar blocked permanently from my Twitter feed @revnaomi #TheologicalThursday


Now *that's* what *I* call "sucking and blowing at the same time"!

Perhaps especially in light of the specific Tweet that *the* Reverend Doctor Suck-And-Blow-At-The-Same-Time was responding to. . .

No U*Us?

For the broken U*U record. . . I initially responded to Rev. Dr. Kelly Murphy Mason's sucking and blowing at the same time by Tweeting -

@RevDrKMM @revnaomi So much for a free and *responsible* search for the Truth, to say nothing of several other UU principles & ideals. #FAIL


and subsequently Tweeting -

ROTFLMU*UO! It would appear that I have been "othered" by @RevDrKMM for questioning her notion that we should "see all difference as grace".


I *could* go on to blog about my subsequent Twitter chat with the Rev. Naomi King who chastised me for Tweeting those critical Tweets but I will save that for another day. . .



* As I pointed out to UU Twitterati Rev. Naomi King in this follow-up Tweet, Twitter's 140 character limit encourages terse (and even quite blunt) "electronic communications" rather than more detailed and nuanced communications that require the use of more words than the 140 character limit allows for. . .
