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.

Martin Luther King Day & The Emerson Avenger's "Alternative Spiritual Practice" Of Non-Violent Direct Action aka Peaceful Public Protest

What's the connection U*Us?

Chicagoland Unitarian Universalist Patrick Murfin has posted quite a good piece about Martin Luther King Day on his 'Heretic, Rebel, a Thing to Flout' blog titled 'What Pisses Me Off About Martin Luther King Day' that in *some* ways relates to what Unitarian Universalist clergy misconduct expert Rev. Deborah Pope-Lance once referred to as my "alternative spiritual practice" and what another respected Unitarian Universalist minister, who is very well acquainted with the UUA's negligent and effectively complicit responses to clergy misconduct, much more recently referred to as my "prophetic work".

Patrick Murfin concludes his "rant" with the following words -

"Let’s celebrate him (i.e. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.) and them (i.e. thousands of other "ordinary" civil rights activists) by rededicating ourselves to standing up as they did, by putting our bodies, when necessary, on the line to achieve his true dream of an equitable and just society."

Here is how I responded to Patrick's words -

You mean like how I put my body on the proverbial "picket line" in doing the "prophetic work" of my "alternative spiritual practice"* in front of the Unitarian Church Of Montreal on Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s birthday yesterday, to say nothing of too many previous Sundays since starting my peaceful public protest against UU injustices and abuses the spring of 1998?

* Dare I say my "spiritual discipline"?

I think I do. . .
