The Unitarian Church Of Montreal Is The Very Model Of Modern Unitarian Universalist Institutionalized Narcissism. . .
Take the word of the Unitarian Church Of Montreal's very own not so *settled* minister Rev. Diane Olenick Rollert, as posted in a comment responding to Rev. Peter C. Boullata's 'Held In The Light' blog post *entitled* 'The Liberal Church Finding Its Mission: It’s Not About You' in which he proclaims,
"Oh dear God, it’s true. We have institutionalized narcissism."
Here is Rev. Diane Rollert's comment verbatim -
Way to go, Peter! You’re going viral here. I’m leaving on sabbatical on Tuesday and am secretly praying that I’ll return in April to find a congregation transformed by your charge. Amen to spiritual discipline. You’ve got our attention. What’s next?
Well "what's next" as far as The Emerson Avenger is concerned is revealed in the comment that I just submitted in response to *the* Rev. Diane Rollert's comment. . . No doubt Rev. Peter C. Boullata's "aversion addiction" to The Emerson Avenger's public criticism of Unitarian Universalist hypocrites in general, and outrageously hypocritical UU clergy in particular. . . will ensure that my comment will be "awaiting moderation" indefinitely -
Way to go Peter indeed. . .
The "less than perfect" not so *settled* minister of what is almost certainly one of the most stunningly narcissistic Unitarian Universalist churches in the whole wide UU World *seems* to be publicly acknowledging the Unitarian Church of Montreal's shameful narcissism in saying, "(I) am secretly praying that I’ll return in April to find a congregation transformed by your charge."
Good luck with that Rev. Rollert. . .
Do you *really* expect your temporary fill-in Rev. Carole Martignacco to somehow magically transform the stunningly narcissistic Unitarian "Church" of Montreal into a spiritually disciplined UU church within the three short months that you will be away on sabbatical in the Philippines when you have quite obviously failed to do so in the several years that you have been the minister of the "Institutionalized Narcissism" of Montreal?
You have had plenty of opportunity to deal with the narcissism, to say nothing of the glaringly obvious hubris. . . of the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal and have not only abjectly failed to do so but have quite evidently chosen the fate of being an enabler of the narcissism, hubris and outrageous hypocrisy of Montreal Unitarians.
Be assured that I will still be engaging in the "spiritual discipline" that Rev. Deborah Pope-Lance once called my "alternative spiritual practice", and another respected UU minister (who is *very* aware of the UUA's negligent and complicit responses to all manner of clergy misconduct) much more recently called my "prophetic work", while you are on sabbatical in the Philippines leaving a hapless Rev. Carole Martignacco holding the proverbial bag. . .
Even before seeing your comment here I was tempted to make a brand-spanking new picket sign slogan saying -
UNITARIAN UNIVERSALIST NARCISSISM SUCKS U*U
to display during my "Sunday Constitutional" outside the Institutionalized Narcissism Of Montreal while you are away but your comment here just gave me the push to go ahead and do it. . . I may even print up with some other new picket sign slogans inspired by Peter's words here like -
WELCOME TO THE INSTITUTIONALIZED NARCISSISM OF MONTREAL
or how about -
IS UNITARIAN UNIVERSALISM INSTITUTIONALIZED NARCISSISM?
Bon Voyage Diane.
See you in April. . .
