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: 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.

Faith Leaders' Letter On The Unitarian Universalist Assocation's Bullshit Blasphemous Libel Accusation

We're off to parody Peter, the blunderful President of U*Us. . .

MoonDay aka U*U Day September 30, 2013
aka International Blasphemy Rights Day

Dear UUA Trustee:

As leaders of faith communities and organizations comprising millions of people from all walks of life across The Land Of The Free and The The Home Of The Brave, we are deeply concerned by the completely avoidable blasphemous libel crisis that The U*U Movement is fast approaching as "a tiny, declining, fringe religion".

Though the Unitarian Universalist Ass. felt that it absolutely MUST falsely accuse The Emerson Avenger of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel, this Lance Armstrong style legal bullying, which seeks to intimidate *The* Transcendentalist Super Hero into "memory holing" a few blog posts about a few UU pedophiles and rapists, to say nothing of blog posts criticizing Peacebang's Big Fat U*U Sodomy Fantasy. . . belongs to EVERY Unitarian Universalist aka member in The U*U Movement. This shameful and hubristic legal bullying, financed with The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion's tiny declining tithing revenues, is designed to make Big Fat U*U Lies sound Truthful and "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" respectable, and to give an appearance of Big Fat U*U Solidity to pure unadulterated bullshit aka Big Fat U*U Wind. How will such immoral and unethical behavior by "less than honest" UUA leaders and "less than perfect" U*U clergy affect the overall well-being, and long-term ethical values of your Big Fat U*U Society? As people of faith we find it morally irresponsible for The U*U Movement to blockade the process by which The Emerson Avenger provides for your tiny declining fringe religion’s shared needs for information about U*U injustices, abuses, and hypocrisy, not too mention some well deserved slaps upside the head. . . We deplore the UUA's Big Fat U*U Bid to force this ever so individualistic Transcendentalist Super Hero to shut up.

It would likewise be reckless** aka audacious, brash, breakneck, carefree, careless, daredevil, daring, desperate, devil-may-care, fast and loose, feckless, foolhardy, harebrained, hasty, headlong, heedless, helter-skelter, hopelessly hotheaded, ill-advised, imprudent, inattentive, incautious, inconsiderate, indiscreet, kooky, madcap, mindless, negligent, overventuresome, playing with fire, precipitate, rash, temerarious, thoughtless, uncareful, (misad)venturesome, (misad)venturous, wild to propel *The* Tiny Declining Fringe Religion into moral bankruptcy by refusing to formally withdraw the false and hubristic blasphemous libel accusation that the Peter Morales administration has already approved. Stonewalling The Emerson Avenger, or defaulting on the Tiny Declining Fringe Religion’s moral and ethical commitments, is likely to diminish your fragile credibility, punish upper middle class U*Us, and deeply harm your most vulnerable abusive clergy.

UUA democracy, indeed ANY democracy, rests on principles of reason, compromise, and a commitment to the common good. To hold your Big Fat U*U Governance Processes and religious credibility hostage to incredibly narrow Big Fat U*U Priorities is not only dangerous to Tiny Declining Fringe Religion’s near-term well-being, it threatens the very foundations of The U*U Movement's use of the democratic process and Unitarian Universalists' Big Fat U*U Capacity to live benighted in The U*U Movement.

We ask that UUA Trustees share their Big Fat U*U Concerns through the proper U*U Movement governance channels. It ill serves your Tiny Declining Fringe Religion and members in The U*U Movement to stand in the way of correcting Big Fat U*U Operational Blunders or raising the Crass Ceiling in an effort to block implementation of restorative justice for ALL victims of UU clergy abuse that the UUA duly but fraudulently pledged 13 "less than lucky" years ago. We ask that Unitarian Universalist leadership of both parties* stand strong in opposing efforts to allow the will of the few U*Us who are serving and protecting abusive U*U clergy, including a few U*Us who are in fact guilty of engaging in "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", to say nothing of threatening and defamatory conduct amounting to sexual harassment of Republicans, to threaten the common good of The Uncommon Denomination.

We commit to keeping you in prayer, asking that God continue to give U*Us wisdom and and The Emerson Avenger to continue teaching U*Us lessons, as you U*Us "less than faithfully" serve our "religion" during this time when the U*U World most needs your "less than principled" leadership.

* It depends upon what the meaning of the word "parties" is. . .

** Notes: feckless  means ineffective or having no real worth or purpose; reckless  means marked by unthinking boldness or with defiant disregard for danger or consequences whereas rash (the adjective) suggests imprudence and lack of forethought; reckless implies disregard of possible consequences

So, I suppose if I email all of "the undersigned" they will confirm they signed on to this poorly written rant? Somehow, I'm doubtful...

What part of -

We're off to *parody* Peter, the blunderful President of U*Us. . .

did you FAIL to understand?

As far as this "rant" being poorly written goes, I only made minimal changes to the original letter which was no doubt written by a committee. . .
