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.

Shouting “Fire!” In A Crowded Theatre Is OK As Long As There Happens To Be An Actual Fire Threatening The Safety Of Its Occupants. . .

This is a fairly straightforward concept that Unitarian Universalist military chaplain Rev. David Pyle apparently fails to understand in his Celestial Lands blog post titled -

'Free Speech, Responsibility, and Religious Violence'

So I politely pointed this fact out to him in the following comment that probably won't see the light of day on 'Celestial Lands'. . .

” You cannot shout “Fire!” in a crowded theatre… and you should not be able to publish hateful, vindictive propaganda about Islam without facing severe and significant consequences.”

Actually you can shout “Fire!” in a crowded theatre if there happens to be an actual fire threatening the safety of its occupants. BTW Does describing Islam as being numbered amongst “obsolete religions, created for another time” that “contribute to the darkness” of “fear, prejudice, and hatred” etc. etc. count as “hateful, vindictive propaganda about Islam”? Because if it does, you *can* do that if you are a “Humanist” UU minister running for President of the UUA. . .
