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.

Unitarian Universalism Is One Big Fat U*U Codependent System. . .

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

Take Rev. Tony Lorenzen's word for it.

As posted to his Sunflower Chalice blog in a brand spanking new blog post entitled 'Unitarian Universalism as One Big Codependent System'.

Here are some choice quotes from it but I recommend reading the whole blog post from start to finish. . .

"I think we need to seriously consider Unitarian Universalism, the Unitarian Universalist Association at large and certainly most of our individual congregations as Codependent family systems. We have addicts – people with aversion addictions to Christianity, certainly, but also to spirituality, and spiritual and religious language. The entire structure of Unitarian Universalism colludes to support this addiction."

"The ministry, the religious educators, the national staff and leadership have for too long been enablers of the aversion addiction. We, the leaders of Unitarian Universalism have created a codependent and culture. We collude with the aversion addicts to keep religious language neutral, leave theology out of our church life, and not demand spiritual discipline or disciplines. If we were to insist on such things, the church family system would blow up in anxiety."

"We have lost much of our ability to deal with this addiction because we have become largely codependent. We are not a place where people holding differing religious views are welcome. If that were true, I wouldn’t be writing this. We are a generally a place where people holding some different religious beliefs except Christianity, which is ironically our roots and history, are welcome."

And here is the comment that I posted in response to something Rev. Tony Lorenzen said that echoes what I have been saying for well over a decade now. . .

"If someone needs to be a community where there is never any mention of God, no one ever prays and religion itself is thought to be for lesser people, let’s be honest and tell them they don’t belong in our congregations."

Amen. . .

BTW I have been saying this for over a decade now Tony.

And then Unitarian Universalists wonder why Unitarian Universalism is "a tiny, declining, fringe religion". . .
