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.

Canada's Simply Embarrassing Blasphemy Law And Unitarian Universalism - What's The Connection?

Summarizing an Opinion Editorial by Winnipeg lawyer Douglas J. Johnston calling for the repeal of Canada's blasphemy law in the Winnipeg Free Press headlined Strike Canada's blasphemy law as a sign of good faith, The National Post's Chris Selley writes in this week's Full Comment Weekend Roundup that Johnston, "argues that ditching Canada’s anti-blasphemy law might be a nice gesture as part of this religious freedom exercise. Such laws are a bad idea on principle, as he says. But ours is particularly bad, he explains, in that it doesn’t define blasphemy, “there doesn’t have to be an element of intention to support a successful prosecution,” and it would be unlikely to survive a Charter challenge anyway. More to the point, we’d say, it’s 2013. That such a law exists is simply embarrassing."

Without further ado here is the comment that I just submitted in response to the National Post's 'Full Comment Weekend Roundup' with some typos corrected and some hyperlinks added -

Regarding Canada's "simply embarrassing" blasphemy law.

I had, and still have. . . the great honour and privilege of being accused of blasphemous libel by the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations last June for allegedly making "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape."

Of course the key word in all that legalistic bluster is *unfounded*, and the few allegations that I actually have made about Unitarian Universalists engaging in "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" are very well founded in fact. The Unitarian Universalists in question were charged with rape, tried for rape, convicted of rape, and incarcerated for the rape of minors. Most ironically, the UU who I described as a "pedophile rapist" because his victims, including "a female family member", were as young as 9 or 10 years old at the times that the rapes were committed was, to the best of my knowledge, not a UU minister at all but an ordinary UU layman. Ergo, prior to receiving the cease and desist demand letter, I had not actually blogged about any pedophilia committed by Unitarian Universalist ministers. This is a clear attempt to misuse and abuse Canada's blasphemy law to silence a critic and cover up and hide online testimony about Unitarian Universalist clergy sexual abuse.

Here is my most recent email to the Stikeman Elliott litigation lawyer who had me served with this cease and desist demand letter last June -

I dare say that it is "simply embarrassing" to The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion aka Unitarian Universalism that the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations has not only incredibly foolishly accused me of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel but, more than eight months down the road, still obstinately refuses to responsibly withdraw that bogus criminal accusation against me and properly and publicly apologize to me for having brought it against me in an outrageously hypocritical, shamefully hubristic, and all but completely ineffective misguided attempt at Lance Armstrong legal bullying which seeks to cover up and hide the Truth that *some* "less than perfect" ministers of the Unitarian Universalist Association have engaged in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape.
