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

Location: Montreal, Quebec, Canada

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.

UUA Clergy Misconduct Policies & Procedures Are "A False Reassurance" To Clergy Misconduct Victims, To Say Nothing Of UUs More Generally. . .

UUGRrrl has just posted a brand-spanking new blog post titled -

The Problem with UUA Web Pages on Misconduct

to her recently resurrected 'Speaking Truth To Power' blog which had been in hiatus for the better part of two years as a result of UUGrrl being thoroughly dis*illusioned by the UUA & MFC. . . Indeed UUGrrl had pretty much given up in disgust with the UUA's ongoing failure (if not outright refusal) to responsibly reform seriously flawed UUA & MFC policies and procedures for dealing with clergy sexual misconduct, to say nothing of non-sexual forms of UU clergy misconduct aka clergy abuse.

Anyone who is concerned with the negligent and effectively complicit manner in which the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations aka UUA and its all too aptly named Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee aka MFC respond to all manner of clergy misconduct, both clergy sexual misconduct and non-sexual clergy misconduct, should read this important UUGrrl blog post, as well as her past and future 'Speaking Truth To Power' blog posts. UUGrrl shows how much of what the UUA publicly claims on the official UUA web site regarding how it responds to clergy misconduct complaints "simply isn’t true" and how such "misleading" (mis)information constitute a "false reassurance to a person badly in need of real support. It also lacks humility — a quality UUs could probably use in general, but is particularly necessary when addressing misconduct." The Emerson Avenger would even go so far as to say that *some* of what is claimed on the the official UUA website with respect to its clergy misconduct policies and procedures is outright fraudulent in that top level UUA leaders, including several UUA Presidents, are perfectly aware that what it publicly proclaims "simply isn’t true", and constitutes a "false reassurance" not only to victims and survivors of UU clergy misconduct, but to Unitarian Universalists more generally, and indeed to the non-UU general public. . .

I will have more to say about this later but, for the time being, the "bad cop" of the UU World hereby refers you to the 'Speaking Truth To Power' blog of the "good cop" of the UU World known as UUGrrl.
