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. Tony Lorenzen Resigned From Pathways UU Church But He Didn’t Molest Anyone And Wasn’t Cheating On His Wife With A Congregation Member

He didn't steal any money from the congregation either.

But don't take *my* word for it U*Us. . .

Take Rev. Tony Lorenzen's word for it, as posted to the 'A Pastor’s Christmas as a Civilian' post of his Sunflower Chalice blog.

According to Rev. Lorenzen, he left Pathways Unitarian Universalist Church in Southlake, Texas, because he has "a deep sense of mission grounded in Universalist Christian theology and the congregation did not". . . I am somewhat surprised that Rev. Tony was unable to figure that fact out himself from Pathways Church's "Mission Statement" published on its website *before* he decided to become its minister three years ago. . .

"You are welcome at Pathways Church regardless of race, gender, sexual orientation, income, or ability. Here we welcome all colors of the human race, all people of good will, whether you are Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, Pagan, Mystic, Atheist, Agnostic or Humanist; young or old; single or partnered; gay, lesbian, bisexual, or straight; transgender, intersex, male or female; disabled or temporarily abled. Here, we know you bring your own unique gifts to this community."

Funny how Rev. Tony Lorenzen has come to the conclusion that his own unique gifts of the Christian Universalist variety are not a good fit with Pathways Church's publicly proclaimed inclusiveness.

No U*Us?

What is even funnier is that in asserting that -

"There was no scandal, I didn’t molest anyone, I didn’t steal any money, and I wasn’t cheating on my wife with a member of the congregation."

Rev. Tony Lorenzen lists a few of the other reasons why *some* "less than perfect" Unitarian Universalist clergy are allowed to quietly resign from their UU congregation, and even to discreetly "move on" to serve yet another Unitarian Universalist "church". . . Hell, everybody knows that *some* entitled Unitarian Universalist ministers, like Rev. Dr. Forrest Church for just one Big Fat U*U *Example*, can even get away with cheating on their wife with a member of their congregation and not even have to resign as the minister of their prominent Unitarian Universalist Church.

And so it goes U*Us. . .
