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: - 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.

Rev. Peter Morales Is A Minister And President Of *The* Tiny Declining Fringe "Religion"™

Just saying as they say. . .

Here is the comment that I just submitted to the 'Pilgrimage to the Prado' post of UUA President Peter Morales' (in)appropriately titled 'Beyond Belief' blog -

"As a minister and president of a religious association,"

But Peter, I thought that according to your own well-documented public statements that you are actually a minister and president of a tiny, declining, fringe "religion". . .

Please forgive me for taking yet another cue from you and enclosing the word religion within euphemistic quotation marks here, but it *is* open to *some* question as to whether or not Unitarian Universalism aka The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™ is a bona fide religion these days. . .

It sure was refreshing to see Harriet Peterson give President Morales the following well deserved public "dressing down" for his intolerant U*U "Foot-In-Mouth Disease" in her follow-up comment -

You say religious art is art that “speaks powerfully to the human condition.” Yet you put “religious” in quotes when describing paintings of “adoring madonnas and pious saints.” Certainly adoration and piety are also a part of the human condition. There is enough divisiveness in our society without the president of the UUA adding to it by calling into question whether art that holds deep meaning for many Christians is religious. Your point that the paintings of dwarfs is religious art could certainly have been powerfully made without calling into question whether the paintings of madonnas and saints is religious.
