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.

Kathleen Kay Montgomery UUA Executive Vice President And UU Clergy Misconduct Enabler Announces Her Retirement. . .

I have just become aware of this "hot off the press" UU World article titled 'Kay Montgomery announces retirement from UUA' about how Kathleen "'Kay" Montgomery the Executive Vice President of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations has announced that she is retiring after 30 years of "less than excellent" service to the Unitarian Universalist Association, 28 of which were in her capacity as Executive Vice President.

The article says that "'Kay" Montgomery joined the UUA staff in 1983 and that, "She has held the position of executive vice president since 1985, and has worked alongside five UUA presidents: the Rev. Eugene Pickett, the Rev. Dr. William F. Schulz, the Rev. John Buehrens, the Rev. William Sinkford, and the Rev. Peter Morales."

That is quite the legacy of negligent and effectively complicit "oversight" of UU clergy misconduct of ALL kinds in light of the fact that, according to her official UUA bio, UUA Executive Vice President Kathleen "'Kay" Montgomery "is responsible, under the supervision of the President, for the day-to-day management of the Association", "supervises all UUA senior staff" (such as Rev. Diane Miller, Rev. Beth Miller, & Rev. Dr. Tracey Robinson-Harris to name but a few. . .) and "coordinates the work of the UUA legal counsel" which presumably includes but is not limited to Maitre Marc-André Coulombe of the UUA's Canadian attorneys Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors.

The UU World article claims that "'Kay" Montgomery announced her decision to retire to UUA employees during a UUA staff meeting on Thor's Day February 7, 2013. The UU World article reports that UUA President Peter Morales told UUA staff in an email that:

"Kay Montgomery’s retirement will truly end an era at the UUA. She has served our Association with distinction and grace. On a personal note, she has been an invaluable colleague."

The UU World article fails to report that the quote gleaned from President Morales' "electronic communication" did not quite end there but went on to say, "especially when it comes to coordinating the work of Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc André Coulombe's Lance Armstrong style legal bullying which falsely accuses Robin Edgar of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel on the unfounded basis that Mr. Edgar has made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape."

UUA President Peter Morales is reported to have also said,

"Our tiny, declining, fringe religion is in a period of exciting change filled with the breathtaking possibility of accusing a person of inherent worth and dignity of the archaic if not obsolete crime of blasphemous libel for the first time in Unitarian Universalist history. As we celebrate Kay’s service to abusive UU clergy and their negligent and complicit enablers in the UUA, let us prepare to embrace the future of UUA complicity in UU clergy misconduct of all kinds."

An upcoming issue of UU World will reflect on "'Kay" Montgomery’s three decades with the UUA, but will say nothing at all about her role in the UUA's institutional cover up and denial of all manner of clergy misconduct which includes, but is by no means limited to, a certain number of "less than perfect" ministers of the Unitarian Universalist Association engaging in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape.
