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. . .

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: http://revelationisnotsealed.homestead.com - 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: http://creationday.homestead.com - 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.

Stikeman Elliott Solicitor Marc-André Coulombe Receives Yet Another "Electronic Communication" Courtesy Of The Emerson Avenger. . .

I felt obliged to send self-described UUA attorney Maitre Marc-André Coulombe of Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors yet another email aka "electronic communication" earlier today since he has consistently failed, or indeed quite obstinately refused. . . to so much as acknowledge receipt of the various emails that I have sent to him since has last letter to me dated June 5th 2012, let alone responded in genuine responsibility to the proverbial "Spirit that bloweth where it listeth" in those emails that I had sent to him. I had previously sent Maitre Coulombe an email last Thor's Day, i.e. November 15, 2012, reminding him of these emails that he had failed to respond to, but he failed to respond to that email too. So I sent him this reminder today.

I have included last week's email which today's email forwarded. The earlier emails referred to in last week's email were posted to my blog post titled -

Friday The 13th July 2012 Was A "Less Than Lucky" Day For Maitre Marc-André Coulombe Of Stikeman Elliott And The Unitarian Universalist Association

Thursday aka Thor's Day November 22, 2012

Without Prejudice

Dear Maitre Coulombe,

It is now a full week since I sent you the email copied below, and well over five months since I sent you the emails that last week's email referenced and forwarded.

To date you have not so much as acknowledged receipt of these emails, let alone responsibly responded to the various requests and questions and other communications that they address to you and your client(s).

AFA*I*AC Your silence, to say nothing of that of your "less than honest" client the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, is far from golden. . .

Indeed I consider your silence, and that of your client, to be symptomatic of moral cowardice, if not plain old ordinary cowardice.

So what exactly are you and your "less than courageous" client afraid of Maitre Coulombe?

The capital 'T' objective Truth perhaps?

The Truth that Rev. Victoria Weinstein's Big Fat U*U "sodomy fantasy" which luridly, obscenely, and just a tad Sadistically. . . imagined Republican state senator William "Bill" Napoli "anally impaled on the Statue Of Liberty's torch" *could* be quite justifiably described as -

Threatening and defamatory conduct amounting to sexual harassment against Republican state senator William "Bill" Napoli?

Heck, in a bit of a legalistic stretch. . . the kind of "less than honest" stretch that you and your "less than honest" client seem to be only too happy to engage in yourselves, one might even go so far as to characterize Rev. Vicki Weinstein's "sodomy fantasy" as amounting to "death threats" against Senator Napoli in that, if one actually was able to anally impale a person of inherent worth and dignity on the Statue of Liberty's torch, doing so would almost certainly result in their agonizing and humiliating death. . .

Right Maitre Coulombe?

The Truth that those few The Emerson Avenger blog posts which actually do speak of Unitarian Universalists engaging in "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" are anything but "unfounded and vicious", as you have formally alleged on behalf of your "less than honest" client the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations?

The readily verifiable objective Truth that the "less than perfect" Unitarian Universalist minister Rev. Mack W. Mitchell, the former "pastor" aka "wolf in shepherd's clothing" of the Unitarian Universalist "churches" in Westborough and Northborough Massachusetts, was charged, tried, and convicted of the forcible rape of one Phuntsok Meston, a vulnerable teenage Tibetan refugee whom he had lured away from her family in India with promises of a new and better life in America?

The readily verifiable objective Truth that the Reverend Doctor Victoria Weinstein's "less than perfect" parishioner Richard "Dick" Buell, of First Parish Norwell Unitarian Universalist "church", was charged, tried, and convicted of the forcible rape of preteen girls, including "a female family member", and was subsequently sentenced to serve at least 10 years in a Massachusetts state prison for his forcible rapes of prepubescent female children which, in light of their young age, quite evidently combined the despicable crimes of pedophilia with rape?

I *could* go on about some of the various other ways that your highly questionable cease and desist demand letter contains "less than honest", if not outright perjurious. . . accusations against me, but by now you really *should* have got the proverbial picture.

No Maitre Coulombe?

In my books, both you and your "less than honest" client are standing on the wrong side of capital 'T' objective and verifiable Truth. You are likewise standing on the wrong side of the "justice, equity and compassion in human relations" that Unitarian Universalists ostensibly "affirm and promote" in the Second Principle of Unitarian Universalism.

In fact, AFA*I*AC your "less than honest" cease and desist demand letter only serves to further validate my "less than new" picket sign slogans which say -

U*Us PERVERT JUSTICE

U*Us CENSOR & SUPPRESS CRITICS

and the BULLYING part of

UNITARIAN BULLYING & BIGOTRY SUCK U*U

as in legal bullying aka legal intimidation

And *that* kinda sucks, doesn't it Maitre Coulombe?

So please be so kind as to formally acknowledge receipt of today's email, as well as acknowledging receipt of ALL of my previous emails aka "electronic communications", and please DO let me know when you and your outrageously hypocritical client the Unitarian Universalist Association are ready to formally withdraw your "less than honest" accusations against me, accusations which include but are by no means limited to your ludicrous accusation(s) to the effect that The Emerson Avenger blog posts about some Unitarian Universalist rapists and pedophiles engaging in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape are "unfounded and vicious", to say nothing of defamatory to an extent that they constitute the archaic, if not outright obsolete... crime of blasphemous libel which is prohibited under section 296 of the Canadian Criminal Code yadda, yadda, yadda. . .

I dare say that I have been ROTFLMU*UO! over *that* all but "beyond belief" accusation against me since you brought it to my attention in your email of June 1, 2012.

Last, but by no means least, please let me know when you, and your "less than honest" client the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, are ready to sincerely, comprehensively, and very publicly, formally apologize to me for dreaming up these foolish things which remind me of U*U perversion of justice past. . .

Allah prochaine,

Robin Edgar aka The Emerson Avenger

Thursday aka Thor's Day November 15, 2012

Without Prejudice

Dear Maitre Coulombe,

It is now five months since I sent you the email copied immediately below dated Friday aka Freya's Day June 15, 2012. You and your client the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations have continuously neglected or, more to the point, outright refused. . . to respond to my emails in any manner whatsoever. Neither you, nor the UUA, have provided any evidence whatsoever in support of the UUA's accusation to the effect that I am guilty of making "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape." Likewise, you have failed or refused to provide requested evidence for some of the other questionable accusations that you brought against me in your cease and desist demand letter dated May 29, 2012 and your follow-up letter dated June 5, 2012.

You and your client have clearly disregarded my demand that you and the UUA must withdraw your false accusations against me, and officially, adequately, and publicly apologize to me for bringing such deeply insulting and, I believe, defamatory accusations against me without providing any evidence whatsoever in support of them.

As far as I am concerned your client's accusation to the effect that I have made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" is not only a completely false accusation but, in that the Executive Vice President of the Unitarian Universalist Association and other top level UUA administrators are in a position to know perfectly well that the comparatively few allegations that I have made regarding Unitarian Universalists engaging in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape are by no means unfounded, it is an accusation that would be of a perjurious nature if it was repeated under oath.

I consider your two cease and desist demand letters to constitute acts of dishonest and abusive legal intimidation and legal bullying comparable to a SLAPP lawsuit and you and your client can rest assured that I will be governing myself accordingly. If the UUA wishes to settle our long standing dispute in a manner that genuinely honors and upholds UU principles and ideals, instead of repeatedly and continuously making a total mockery of claimed UU principles, I suggest that they try a different approach.

In the meantime I will be taking steps to ensure that you, Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors, and those UUA administrators and UU clergy who are responsible for hiring you to engage in your arrogant and aggressive legal intimidation face some real accountability for this quite ludicrous example of legalistic spitting into the wind.

Sincerely,

Robin Edgar

UU Legislative Ministry NJ aka Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry Of New Jersey And UUA Legal Douchebaggery - What's The Connection?

How about this brand-spanking new comment The Emerson Avenger just posted to the brand-spanking new UU Legislative Ministry NJ Facebook page just for starters U*Us?

"Unfortunately Unitarian Universalists are ALL in *this* together. . ."

Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors And The Robin Edgar Sucks Blog. . . What's The Connection?

*Someone* from the Montréal office of Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors paid a visit to The Emerson Avenger blog yesterday, and they arrived here as a result of running a free and responsible Google search for - robin edgar uu

So what exactly is the Big Fat U*U Connection between the law firm Stikeman Elliott Barristers LLP & Solicitors and the slanderous and libelous Robin Edgar Sucks blog U*Us ask?

Well, Truth be told, there a number of connections, most of which predate yesterday's visit by *someone* from Stikeman Elliott, *someone* who was most likely to be one Marc-André Coulombe who chose the Big Fat U*U Fate of sending me one of the funniest cease and desist demand letters in the history of the U*U World on June 1st of this year. With respect to yesterday's visit from *someone* at Stikeman Elliott however, I could not help but notice that the Number One result for the aforementioned Google search is the homepage of the Robin Edgar Sucks blog, and that the second Google result is a Robin Edgar Sucks blog post entitled 'How Robin Edgar Defamed the UUA' which was posted to the ever so interconnected and interdependent web of the internet on March 7, 2011.

Quite ironically, that Robin Edgar Sucks blog post alleges that I have "repeatedly alleged that the UUA and its Ministerial Fellowship Committee engaged in a ‘cover-up’ regarding sexual assault charges against Reverend Mack Mitchell in 1991." In fact I have done no such thing but, as an anonymous comment points out, I have quite justifiably "accused one UU lay leader of trying to cover up Mitchell’s misconduct", indeed I have also previously accused Rev. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang of "memory holing" my comments about Rev. Mack Mitchell's egregious clergy sexual misconduct which included but was not limited to the rape of vulnerable teenage Tibetan refugees who he had lured to his UU parish in Northboro MA with promises of "a better life in America". This of course brings us full circle to one of the most highly questionable accusations brought against me by Maitre Marc-André Coulombe on behalf of his client the Unitarian Universalist Association. Specifically the less than well founded accusation to the effect that I have made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the (Unitarian Universalist) Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape."

Most ironically. . . I never actually accused the Unitarian Universalist Association itself of trying to cover-up and hide the fact that the "less than perfect" Unitarian Universalist minister Rev. Mack Mitchell had raped vulnerable teenage Tibetan refugees after luring them away from their family in India to his parish in Northborough MA. I *had* accused Rev. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang of "memory holing" my comments regarding Rev. Mack Mitchell's egregious clergy sexual misconduct that I had posted in response to her blog post entitled 'Violating the Privacy of the Mind And the Body' and I had likewise accused U*U BDSM Dom Desmond Ravenstone of similar "memory holing" of one or more comments mentioning Rev. Mack Mitchell's "bondage and domination" of Tibetan refugees that I had posted in response to one of his 'Ravenstone's Reflections' blog posts, but I had not accused the UUA itself of cover-up. Interestingly enough, in subsequent comparatively recent research into the Rev. Mack Mitchell case involving reading contemporary newspaper reports that are not available online, I have learned that the UUA did in fact want to handle this matter "in confidence" but the possibility of a private and confidential settlement was negated when one of Rev. Mack Mitchell's female parishioner's decided to share her concerns about Mack Mitchell's sexual proclivities with the police. Once the matter was in the hands of the police and justice system the UUA no longer in a position to keep the matter confidential was it?

So what I find quite interesting is that, years and years and years later, the Unitarian Universalist Association is now quite cynically attempting to force me to "memory hole" The Emerson Avenger blog posts about Rev. Mack Mitchell and another U*U criminal who was convicted of raping preteen girls, including "a female family member", by falsely accusing me of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel on the unfounded basis that I have made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the (Unitarian Universalist) Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape." So *that* U*Us is one of the ways, albeit not the only way. . . that the UUA's Canadian attorneys Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors are interconnected with the Robin Edgar Sucks blog on the the interdependent web of the internet, which of course is part of the interconnected and interdependent web of all existence.

The hubris.

The Big Fat U*U Hubris. . .

Natalia Averett UUA Trustee For Joseph Priestley District Gets A Questioning Electronic Communication From The Emerson Avenger

In the form of a comment posted in response to a YouTube video featuring UUA Trustee Natalia Averett speaking about the role of the UUA Board Of Trustees in "embracing and struggling with issues of oppression and privilege" so that ALL are "welcome and safe" in Unitarian Universalist congregations.



Here is the comment that I posted earlier this morning after having this recent YouTube video kindly brought to my attention in a Tweet posted by RelentlesslyUU aka Andrea Lerner -

What is the UUA Board of Trustees doing in terms of embracing and struggling with the issues of past and ongoing oppression of UU clergy misconduct victims and UU clergy privilege Natalia? What is the UUA Board doing to ensure that the systemic injustices that are written into MFC Rules are responsibly addressed and reformed? What is the Board doing to ensure that the promised "restorative justice" for ALL victims of UU clergy misconduct is actually implemented? Not much as far as I can see...

end quote

It will be interesting to see just how Joseph Priestley District UUA Trustee Natalia Averett responds to my comment inquiring about just what the UUA Board of Trustees is doing to address the systemic injustices written into the MFC Rules that the UUA Board has known about since at least April 2010, if not considerably earlier. . .

Here is the obligatory screenshot of my comment, as successfully posted in response to this YouTube video, just in case Natalia decides to get all oppressive on me by "memory holing" it. . .

UUA Clergy Misconduct Victims Are Marginalized And Denied Basic Rights Because Unitarian Universalists Fear Them. . .

At least that would seem to be the logical conclusion of UUA President Peter Morales' rather questionable words, as posted to his most recent Huffington Post Opinion Editorial entitled 'Be Not Afraid Of The Emerson Avenger'.

The following comment *was* pending approval until it was displayed as approved by Huffington Post moderators who *had* suppressed my first two or three comments. . .

HUFFPOST SUPER USER Robin Edgar 66 Fans 1 second ago ( 3:34 PM)

This comment is pending approval and won't be displayed until it is approved.

"For example, I believe that the rejection of science and the willful denial of overwhelming evidence for global warming and biological evolution can only be understood as arising from fear. Similarly, the efforts to marginalize LGBT people and deny them basic rights is based ultimately in fear."

So, presumably it logically follows that the deeply misguided and outrageously hypocritical efforts of the UUA and individual UU "churches" to marginalize UU clergy abuse victims and deny UU clergy misconduct complainants basic rights, such as the right to appeal unsatisfactory UUA/MFC rulings that are neither just, nor equitable, nor compassionate, is based ultimately in fear. . .

Right Peter?

Or could it just be arrogance and hubris?

*The* Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang aka Vicki The Impaler Practices Honey Tough Love™ As A Big Fat U*U Clergy Mentor

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

Take that word of Reverend Doctor Vicki The Impaler herself, as posted to her Facebook account earlier today.

"I practice Honey Tough Love as a mentor. This is when you are affectionate, warm and motherly but you're tough in the end. Like, "No, you can't cancel preaching on Sunday morning because you're in the midst of a spiritual crisis, but you're going to be fine and I'm going to help you get into that pulpit in one piece. You can do it, honey!" *boot aimed at butt* (By the way, I don't have a student minister right now so I'm not revealing any confidences -- you'd be surprised how many seminarians I mentor via phone and e-mail and text)"

Thankfully *The* Reverend Doctor(ed) Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang aka Vicki Vicious cannot actually physically kick U*U seminarians in their U*U via phone or e-mail or text but I wouldn't put it past her to verbally kick U*U seminarians in the butt, or balls, or indeed teeth, as part of her Honey Tough Love™ "mentoring". . .

When UUA President Peter Morales Is Afraid He Gets Defensive And He Is Likely To Lash Out. . .

Indeed, when President Morales is afraid he cannot reach out, he cannot open his heart or his mind.



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

Take the word of UUA President Peter Morales himself, as just posted to his brand spanking new Huffington Post Opinion Editorial aka Op/Ed piece entitled 'Be Not Afraid Of The Emerson Avenger'. . . :-)

"I know that when I am afraid I get defensive. I am more likely to lash out. When I am afraid I cannot reach out, I cannot open my heart or my mind. When I am not afraid, I am open to life, open to relationship, open to love."

I can thus reasonably assume that UUA President Peter Morales was just a tad afraid this spring when he quite heartlessly and brainlessly aka foolishly authorized Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors attorney Marc-André Coulombe to "lash out" at me with an aggressive and arrogant cease and desist demand letter which, amongst other foolish things. . . falsely accused me of the crime of blasphemous libel on the far from well founded basis that I have made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape."

Here is the typo corrected version of the initial comment that I just submitted in response to President Morales' Opinion Editorial about his apparent deep-seated fear of The Emerson Avenger. . .

"What does our recognition of the interdependent web of all existence call us to do?"

Amongst other things Peter, it would seem that the interdependent web of all existence called U*Us to falsely accuse me of the criminal act of blasphemous libel on the unfounded basis that I have made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the (Unitarian Universalist) Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape." Not that I haven't actually written and posted a few The Emerson Avenger blog posts about Unitarian Universalists engaging in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape to the interdependent web of the internet, it's just that those blog posts are neither unfounded nor particularly vicious. . . So just how do you and other UUA leaders rationalize your shameful legal intimidation and legal bullying, which clearly seeks to cover up and hide such despicable crimes that have actually been committed by Unitarian Universalists, with the Second Principle of Unitarian Universalism which calls for justice, equity and compassion in human relations?

 Do tell. . .

Update Friday November 9, 2012:

It seems that Huff Post "moderators" aka censors suppressed the two comments that I submitted in response to President Morales' most recent Huff & Puff Piece. I have just submitted a third comment which I am reproducing below -

1 second ago ( 7:18 AM) This comment is pending approval and won't be displayed until it is approved.

"I know that when I am afraid I get defensive. I am more likely to lash out. When I am afraid I cannot reach out, I cannot open my heart or my mind."

So Peter. . .

Just how afraid were you and other top level UUA leaders when you authorized Stikeman Elliott attorney Marc-André Coulombe to "lash out" at me with one of the most hysterical cease and desist demand letters ever written? :-)

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/2012/07/marc-andre-coulombe-stikeman-elliott.html

Is this inept attempt at legal bullying how you and other top level UUA leaders act as "people of faith who show another way"?

Is falsely accusing me of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel on the perjurious basis that I have made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the (Unitarian Universalist) Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" how you and other hypocritical UUA leaders show, by your lived example. . . that you have nothing to fear?

Is this how you and other outrageously hypocritical Unitarian Universalists continue to reach out across the walls that divide U*Us? Is this how and where love guides U*Us?
