Dear UUA Trustees,


As seems to be your wont aka habit, you are doing a truly spectacular job of validating this well known saying that is (perhaps erroneously) attributed to one Edmund Burke-

"All that is required for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing."

Or indeed the following well documented words of one Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. -

“The ultimate tragedy is not the oppression and cruelty by the bad people but the silence over that by the good people.”


“Not only will we have to repent for the sins of bad people; but we also will have to repent for the appalling silence of good people.”

Not to mention these words attributed to Abraham Lincoln aka "Honest Abe" -

“To sin by silence, when they should protest, makes cowards of men.”

And last, but by no means least. . . these words attributed to Albert Einstein.

“If I were to remain silent, I'd be guilty of complicity.”

Please be assured that I am beginning to have serious doubts about UUA Trustees being "good people" in light of your past and ongoing abject failure, and apparent obstinate refusal, to "do the right thing".

If by the close of the January 2013 UUA Board of Trustees meetings, the UUA Board of Trustees has not formally censured the "less than perfect" Rev. Peter Morales' UUA administration for engaging in the outrageously hypocritical legal bullying that I have brought to the Board's attention in previous emails, such as the "electronic communication" forwarded to you below and various other emails sent to the Board before and after that email, I will consider the UUA Board of Trustees to be complicit in the legal intimidation in question, not to mention the egregious UU clergy sexual misconduct, and non-sexual "conduct unbecoming a minister", that this shameful and hubristic UUA legal bullying seeks to cover-up and hide from public view on the ever so interconnected, and indeed interdependent, web of existence known as the internet.

For those few new UUA Board members who may not be fully "up to speed" regarding this U*U mess, which is now over seven months old in terms of the truly blunderful cease and desist demand letter that the UUA so foolishly, and outrageously hypocritically, hired Stikeman Elliott litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe to have me served with in early June of 2012, you are hereby invited to engage in a free and truly *responsible* search for the Truth and meaning of what I have posted to the interconnected web in these and other The Emerson Avenger blog posts -




Suffice it to say that my (to date) comparatively few "allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" are by no means "unfounded and vicious" as the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations and its Canadian legal counsel, Stikeman Elliott attorney Maitre Marc-André Coulombe, so disingenuously aka "less than Truthfully" *pretend* in the UUA's "less than honest" cease and desist demand letter.

Besides censuring the Rev. Peter Morales' UUA administration, including censuring UUA Executive Vice President Kathleen 'Kay Montgomery who is personally responsible for coordinating the UUA's legal counsel, and thus must bear a high degree of personal responsibility for this Big Fat U*U Fiasco. I additionally demand that the UUA Board of Trustees must takes steps to ensure that each and every individual UUA leader, and each individual UUA staff person, who bears some responsible for this immoral and unethical legal bullying, which makes a total mockery of UU principles and ideals and shamefully betrays Unitarian Universalist religious history, faces real accountability for their personal role in creating this situation.

Needless to say, if the UUA Board of Trustees fails or refuses to acquiesce to my reasonable demands which, unlike the UUA's  shamefully cynical and hypocritical demands towards me, are entirely consistent with the claimed principles and ideals of Unitarian Universalism which, amongst other things, call for Unitarian Universalists to affirm and promote justice, equity and compassion in human relations, I will feel morally obligated to govern myself accordingly by censuring the UUA Board of Trustees, amongst other perfectly legal things that I can and will do if the UUA foolishly continues to refuse to formally withdraw its false accusations against me and to sincerely and very publicly apologize to me for having the audacity to bring these false (if not perjurious) accusations against me.
