The Female U*U Feminists Of The Unitarian Church Montreal And Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape - What's The Connection?
Female clergy and other feminists speak out against the values charter
Amongst other things, this open letter addressed to Québec premier Mme. Pauline Marois says,
"We recognize the difficult battles that women are fighting throughout the world to establish their rightful and equal place in human society. We are in sympathy with all women who have suffered because of the inequalities they have experienced in their churches, synagogues or mosques, and we are pleased to say that, as evidenced by the female clergy and lay leaders among us, we have come a long way.
We support a woman’s right to make choices in her life, especially when it comes to the control of her body. We applaud the freedoms that have been won since the 1960s and we have no desire to go backward. For these reasons, we cannot support the banning of individual religious expression as proposed in the Charter of Quebec Values."
"As women who come from a diversity of traditions, we know that there are still many battles to be fought to ensure that all women are safe from domestic violence and that they have access to all that a free society like Quebec has to offer. We also know that injustice, inequality and violence can be found across all cultures. These are the real issues that need to be addressed.
As women of Quebec, we have much to offer our society regardless of the way we dress. We urge Premier Pauline Marois to withdraw the proposal to ban religious symbols within the public and semi-public sectors, and urgently ask her to meet with us to discuss the real plight of women here."
How ironic, to say nothing of outrageously hypocritical. . . that these very same female Unitarian Universalist feminists do not seem to be the least bit concerned about injustice, inequality and violence that Montreal Unitarians and-or other Unitarian Universalists aka U*Us are guilty of directly perpetrating or indirectly perpetuating via their own DIM Thinking negligence towards and effective complicity in U*U unjustices, abuses, inequalities, and violence, including the U*UltraViolence of Peacebang's Big Fat U*U Sodomy Fantasy.
How is it possible that these self-proclaimed U*U feminists, who publicly claim to be "in sympathy with all women who have suffered because of the inequalities they have experienced in their churches, synagogues or mosques," can turn willfully blind eyes to the readily verifiable fact that the UUA is falsely accusing me of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel on the unfounded basis that I have allegedly made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" in stunningly hubristic, and utterly shameful, Lance Armstrong style legal bullying that quite evidently seeks to intimidate me into taking down aka deleting aka memory holing The Emerson Avenger blog posts about "less than perfect" Unitarian Universalists who have in fact been found guilty of engaging in "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape"? How can these U*U feminists willfully ignore my peaceful public protest against U*U clergy abuse which includes, but is by no means limited to, the injustice, inequality and violence of "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" for months, years, and even a decade or more?
Surely U*U clergy abuse, clergy sexual misconduct and otherwise. . . and the various other U*U injustices and abuses that I have been protesting against since 1998 are "real issues that need to be addressed".
As women in The U*U Movement, perhaps the Montreal Unitarian Universalist feminists listed below, who claim to have so much to offer society regardless of the way they dress, should urge UUA President Peter Morales to formally withdraw the UUA's ludicrous, hubristic and utterly shameful blasphemous libel accusation against me, and urgently ask him to meet with female clergy sexual misconduct victims to discuss the real plight of these women (to say nothing of vulnerable teenage Tibetan refugees and preteen girls) who were victims of "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", or who were otherwise sexually abused by "less than perfect" ministers of the Unitarian Universalist Association.

Herewith the comments that I submitted in response to that letter in The Gazette -
Robin Edgar · Concordia University
Injustice, inequality and violence can be found at the Unitarian Church of Montreal and in the greater Unitarian Universalist community. These are the real issues that need to be addressed by the U*U women who have signed this letter while turning a blind eye to that injustice, inequality and violence. . .
