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.

No News Is NOT Good News For U*Us aka Yet Another Year Of Unitarian Universalism Being A Tiny Declining Fringe Religion. . .

I once protested in front of Montreal's 'The Gazette' with a picket sign that said -


as a result of The Gazette's failure, and indeed refusal, to publish a variety of newsworthy stories, but *that* is not what this particular TEA blog post is about.

Rev. Scott Wells has posted a 'Boy In The Bands' blog post titled -

New congregation news within the UUA

which says -

Looking back over the last six months of UUA Board of Trustees minutes, I've found one congregational admission (45 members) and one merger (24 members), meaning no net change. That's not good news for the association. . .

end quote*

It will be interesting to see just how many Unitarian Universalist congregations, and individual "card carrying" members in The U*U Movement, there are left in the so-called UU World when the UUA's annual "census" of Unitarian Universalists becomes official in early February, 2012, but it is not looking too promising at the moment and I am betting that Unitarian Universalism will prove to be an even tinier, declinier, and possibly even fringier. . . "fringe religion" than it was back in 2008 when Rev. Peter Morales whined about how tired he was of Unitarian Universalism being "a tiny, declining, fringe religion" in his "stump speech" announcing his candidacy for UUA President.

* Although there *is* a little bit more said by Rev. Scott Wells where that quote came from.
