Blasphemy Day aka International Blasphemy Rights Day And Outrageously Hypocritical U*U Asses* - What's The Big Fat U*U *Connection*?

Yom Kippur Day Of Atonement And Repentance And The "New And Improved" UUA Board Of Trustees - What's The Connection?

How about this very first "electronic communication" aka email that I sent to the "new", and hopefully improved... UUA Board of Trustees yesterday, just hours before the 2013 observance of Yom Kippur aka The Day Of Atonement began?



How About Some Yom Kippur Repentance By The UUA?

Friday The 13th, September 2013,


Dear UUA Moderator Jim Key and UUA Trustees,

As a result of the previous incarnation(s) of the UUA Board of Trustees during former UUA Moderator Gini Courter's "Reign Of Error" abjectly failing, or indeed quite obstinately refusing. . . to respond in responsibility to the Spirit that bloweth where is listeth, I am hereby calling upon you to respond in genuine responsibility to the letter and the Spirit of the "electronic communication" aka email that I sent to the UUA Board of Trustees eight months ago on Friday January 18, 2013, which is forwarded to you below.

It has come to my attention that the UUA Board is currently in a Board retreat* with UUA staff. It thus seems to me that, since the observance of Yom Kippur aka The Day Of Atonement begins at sunset this evening and continues until sunset on Saturday, this particular UUA Board retreat might be a particularly appropriate occasion for the UUA Board of Trustees to freely and responsibly enter into into an examination of its collective conscience and to move towards sincere repentance and atonement for the UUA Board's past failures, and apparent refusals, to honour and uphold Unitarian Universalist principles and ideals in its rather inhuman human relations with me and other people who have dared to file formal misconduct complaints against "less than perfect" UU clergy and-or "less than competent" UUA staff, such as recently "retired" UUA Executive Vice President Kathleen "'Kay" Montgomery to name but one. . .

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/2012/10/kathleen-kay-montgomery-uua-vice.html

Please take the time to enter into a free and genuinely *responsible* search for the Truth and meaning of these "electronic communications" towards the end of properly honoring and upholding the Second Principle of Unitarian Universalism which calls upon UUs to affirm and promote justice, equity and compassion in human relations. The UUA's incredibly
hubristic decision to falsely accuse me of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel for blogging about some UUs who have actually been convicted of engaging in "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" is foolish beyond belief and I hereby call upon the new UUA Board to take steps to ensure that the Peter Morales' administration formally withdraws this completely bogus criminal accusation against me, and profusely and publicly apologizes to me for having the hubris and audacity to bring this and other highly questionable accusations against me via its Canadian attorneys Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors.

You may affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of this person by having the human decency to formally acknowledge receipt of this email in a timely manner. Previous incarnations of the UUA Board of Trustees have not so much as acknowledged receipt of my "electronic communications" for years now. . .

Sincerely,

Robin Edgar aka The Emerson Avenger


P.S. Here is a new The Emerson Avenger blog post about the most recent "electronic communication" that I sent to "less than lucky" UUA President Peter Morales and Stikeman Elliott attorney Maitre Marc-André Coulombe.

Freya's Day January 18, 2013

Dear UUA Trustees,

Congratulations!

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.”

and

“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 -

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/2012/07/marc-andre-coulombe-stikeman-elliott.html

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/2006/10/sex-lies-uu-rape-egregious-sexual.html

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/search?q=Stikeman+Elliott

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.

Friday October 19, 2012 aka Spirit Day 2012 


Dear UUA Trustee,

As much as I am deeply appreciative of the extraordinary honour and privilege that the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations chose to bestow upon me by falsely accusing me of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel on the unfounded basis that I have made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" I believe that it is in the best interests of the UUA and the greater Unitarian Universalist "religion" to formally withdraw that false accusation and to publicly and comprehensively apologize to me for having had that bogus criminal accusation brought against me by one of your "less than perfect" Canadian attorneys from Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors, namely Maitre Marc-André Coulombe. In fact I firmly believe that the UUA Board of Trustees would be very well advised to take steps to ensure that those staff members of the Rev. Peter Morales' UUA administration who are responsible for hiring Stikeman Elliott LLP solicitor Maitre Marc-André Coulombe to draw up (if not dream up. . .) the highly questionable cease and desist demand letter, that is dated May 29, 2012 and which was initially sent to me via email on June 1st of this year, are help fully accountable for their "less than competent" and "less than ethical" to say nothing of "less than intelligent" behavior which makes a total mockery of many if not most of the purported principles and ideals of Unitarian Universalism. 

UUA Executive Vice President Kathleen "'Kay" Montgomery "supervises all senior UUA staff" and, perhaps more to the point. . . "coordinates the work of the UUA's legal counsel" which logically includes coordinating the work of any and all attorneys working for Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors who claimed to be "the Canadian attorneys for the Unitarian Universalist Association" in the cease and desist demand letter that Maitre Marc-André Coulombe sent to me in early June of this year. I thus have very reasonable grounds to believe that Kathleen "'Kay" Montgomery is responsible for oversight and even approval of the highly questionable content of that legal document. Allow me to remind UUA Trustees that, in her capacity as the supervisor of the day-to-day management of the Unitarian Universalist Association and the coordinator of the work of the UUA's legal counsel for the better part of three decades since being appointed to that position in 1985, UUA Executive Vice President Ms. Kathleen "'Kay" Montgomery is very well positioned to know perfectly well 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 anything but *unfounded* as the UUA has falsely, if not outright perjuriously, alleged in the cease and desist demand letter that it hired its Canadian attorney Maitre Marc-André Coulombe to have me served with. In that Kathleen Montgomery was responsible for supervising the negligent and effectively complicit manner in which senior UUA staff Rev. Dr. Tracey Robinson-Harris and Rev. Beth Miller arbitrarily dismissed my unbecoming conduct complaint against Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang, and thus effectively okayed Peacebang's "sodomy fantasy" amongst other insulting and abusive behavior, "'Kay" Montgomery is similarly well positioned to know perfectly well that Peacebang's "sodomy fantasy", which obscenely (and indeed quite Sadistically) imagined Republican South Dakota state senator Bill Napoli "anally impaled on the Statue of Liberty's torch", is rather more worthy of being described as "threatening and defamatory conduct amounting to sexual harassment" of Republican senator William M. Napoli than my subsequent The Emerson Avenger blog posts which criticized and mocked Peacebang's "sodomy fantasy" and criticized senior UUA staff members Congregational Services Director Rev. Dr. Tracey Robinson-Harris, and MFC Executive Secretary Rev. Beth Miller, for pretending that Peacebang's insulting and abusive behavior was "outside of her professional role as a minister serving a congregation." 

Above and beyond this, UUA Executive Vice President Ms. Kathleen C. Montgomery has coordinated UUA Amici Curiae briefs including one which asserts that ALL blasphemy laws are unconstitutional. Indeed I would not be surprised if it was as a result of supervising that particular Amicus that "'Kay" came up with the cynical and just plain foolish notion to have the UUA's Canadian attorneys accuse me of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel which is still "on the books" in the Canadian Criminal Code. These and other outrageously hypocritical double standards exercised by Ms. Kathleen "'Kay" Montgomery on behalf of the Unitarian Universalist Association aka UUA are very well documented and they call into question the moral and ethical integrity of not only the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations but the greater Unitarian Universalist religious community which the UUA ostensibly serves and represents. I thus hereby demand that the UUA Board of Trustees must take steps to ensure that the role of UUA Executive Vice President Kathleen Montgomery in Stikeman Elliott attorney Maitre Marc-André Coulombe's aggressive, arrogant (if not outright hubristic), shamelessly hypocritical, and indeed just plain foolish legal intimidation is thoroughly investigated and that "'Kay" Montgomery is held fully accountable for her personal involvement in this utterly shameful and quite frankly embarrassing act of legal bullying on behalf of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations.

Yom Kippur 2013 And A Rather "Less Than Lucky" Friday The Thirteenth - What's The Connection?

How about UUA President Peter Morales' & Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe's ongoing obstinate refusal to repent of their Big Fat U*U Sin of falsely accusing me of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel on the "less than honest" basis that I have made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape"?


Without further ado here is the complete text of the "electronic communication" that I sent to UUA President Peter Morales and Stikeman Elliott attorney Maitre Marc-André Coulombe minutes ago:

Are You Feeling Lucky Today?

Friday The 13th September 2013


Dear President Morales & Maitre Coulombe,

The "electronic communication" aka email forwarded below was sent to you on Friday July 13, 2012.

It seems that you have both been "less than lucky" in incredibly foolishly accusing me of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel on the unfounded basis that I have made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape." As if this inept legal bullying was not bad enough, you have only increased your own self-created "bad luck" by abjectly failing, indeed obstinately refusing, to formally withdraw this and other false accusations that you have brought against me in two legal letters written on Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors letterhead.

I can't help but wonder what Stikeman Elliott attorney Richard Pound would think about Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors engaging in shameful and hubristic Lance Armstrong style legal bullying that seeks to cover-up and hide the fact that a certain number of Unitarian Universalist ministers (to say nothing of UU Religious Educators...) have not only engaged in
"such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", but have even been convicted of engaging in "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape".

In obstinately refusing to take responsibility for your well-documented sins of commission and sins of omission in this regrettable matter for more than a year you have made your own luck, and it is not good luck by any means. I will be going public about the shameful legal bullying in the near future.

Besides being a "less than lucky" Friday the 13th for you today, it also happens to be the first day of Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day Of Atonement, starting at sunset tonight and extending until sunset tomorrow. I suggest that you take full advantage of this occasion to seek forgiveness from God for your unethical, immoral, borderline illegal, hilariously inept and shamefully hubristic attempt to misuse and abuse Canada's archaic blasphemy law in a deeply misguided and outrageously hypocritical effort to cover-up and hide the fact that *some* Unitarian Universalist ministers DO engage in "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape."

You long ago squandered the possibility of receiving forgiveness from me following a formal withdrawal of your false accusations against me along with an appropriate public apology for bringing them against me. None-the-less, after examining your consciences (assuming you actually possess a conscience), you might find it in your hearts (assuming you actually have a heart) to sincerely and publicly repent of your very well-documented sins of commission and sins of omission and work towards seeking reconciliation with me and other people who have not only been abused and victimized by "less than perfect" Unitarian Universalist clergy, but have been revictimized by the UUA's egregious institutional denial and stonewalling.

Sincerely,

Robin Edgar aka The Emerson Avenger

Freya's Day aka Friday July 13, 2012 

Dear Maitre Coulombe,

It is now over three weeks since I sent you the email copied below (dated Woden's Day aka Wednesday June 20, 2012), and about a month and a half since you sent me your initial cease and desist demand letter on behalf of your client, the Unitarian Universalist Association, by email on Friday June 1, 2012, (dated May 29, 2012). You have not responded to a single follow-up email that I subsequently sent to you in response to your rather questionable cease and desist demand letter since your second letter to me dated June 5, 2012, in which you acknowledged receipt of my initial emails to you but refused to cooperate with my free and responsible search for the Truth and meaning (or lack thereof. . .) of your initial demand letter, and went so far as to make several additional unsupported allegations and/or accusations that were not mentioned in your first demand letter to me. You have so far failed to provide the slightest scrap of evidence in support of you and your client's highly questionable allegations to the effect that I have made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", and/or that such allegedly "unfounded and vicious allegations" made against certain unidentified Unitarian Universalist ministers are actually defamatory to the extent that they constitute the criminal act of blasphemous libel (Criminal Code R.S.C. 1985, c. C.46.1). 

I made it very clear to you almost a month ago, in my email dated Friday June 15, 2012, that, unless you and/or your client the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations provided some credible evidence supporting these highly questionable accusations against me, you must both formally and rapidly withdraw them, and officially, adequately, and publicly apologize to me for bringing such deeply insulting and, I believe, defamatory accusations against me. Neither you, nor your client, has provided the slightest scrap of evidence in support of the above mentioned accusations against me, nor have you provided any evidence supporting any of your various other allegations and accusations that were made in your first and second letters to me. Regardless of what (little) merit some of your client's other allegations may have I am confident that I have not in fact posted any "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape." I am also very confident that even if I had actually made such allegedly "unfounded and vicious allegations" against one or more Unitarian Universalist ministers that such allegations would NOT be "defamatory to the extent that they constitute the criminal act of blasphemous libel (Criminal Code R.S.C. 1985, c. C.46.1)" as you arrogantly pretended in your initial aggressively worded cease and desist demand letter dated May 29, 2012. 

You and your client have both failed, or indeed refused, to responsibly withdraw these unfounded and foolish allegations against me, nor have you properly apologize to me for making these false accusations against me, in a timely and public manner as I demanded. As a result of your apparent refusal to responsibly apologize to me I will be taking a variety of actions to ensure that you and your client face some accountability for: -

A) bringing highly misleading or outright false allegations and/or accusations against me 

and 

B) refusing to apologize to me for bringing these questionable, or indeed just plain false. . . accusations against me. 

These actions include, but are not limited to, exercising my Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guaranteed civil rights and liberties to engage in peaceful public protest against the quite shameful, and remarkably hypocritical, legal intimidation and legal bullying that I have reasonable grounds to believe you and your client are both guilty of, in front of the downtown Montreal offices of Stikeman Elliott. Thank you so much for so thoughtlessly providing a prominent high-traffic downtown Montréal location where I may continue to engage in my "alternative spiritual practice" aka "prophetic work" of publicly exposing and denouncing Unitarian Universalist anti-religious intolerance and bigotry, all forms of UU clergy misconduct (and UUA complicity therein), and various other Unitarian Universalist injustices, abuses, and hypocrisies.

Sincerely,

Robin Edgar

Dear Maitre Coulombe,

Without Prejudice & Happy Summer Solstice!

After thoroughly scouring my email inbox and SPAM folder I find myself quite unable to find an email from you and/or your client the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations aka The U*U Movement aka The Tiny, Declining Fringe Religion responding to the email aka "electronic communication" that I sent to you on Freya's Day aka Frigg Day aka Friday June 15, 2012.

Hopefully you and the pertinent "less than responsive" administrators of your "less than perfect" client "the Association" freely and responsibly check your email SPAM folders from time to time to see if there might be an important email that got shunted into your SPAM folder by accident or indeed intentionally. I will be telephoning you and some UUA administrators like UUA President Peter Morales and/or UUA Executive Vice President Kathleen "'Kay" Montgomery later today to ensure that you and/or these U*U Movement staff*administrators did in fact receive my email that was sent to you*them on the morning of Freya's Day June 15, 2012, not to mention my previous email (also copied below) which was sent to you and you alone on Moon Day aka Monday June 11, 2012. 

I dropped by the Montréal offices of Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors on the afternoon of Monday to see if it was possible to collect the "hard copy" of the second letter that you sent to me as a PDF file attached to your second and, to date, last "electronic communication" to me but it was not available at the reception desk and your "adjointe" was apparently too busy with other important matters to find it and bring it to me while I was waiting in the expansive, not to mention apparently quite expensive, lobby of Stikeman Elliott LLP's Montréal offices. Please take steps to ensure that I may retrieve the hard copy of your second letter to me in the coming days. 

That is all for now but I will leave you and your client "the Association" with the following word of warning aka "threatening statement" from our sponsor -


"Talk no more so very proudly; Let no arrogance come from your mouth, For the Lord is the God of knowledge; And by Him actions are weighed."

Dear Maitre Coulombe,
It is now the better part of a full work week since I sent you the email (or what some U*Us would call an "electronic communication") copied immediately below and dated Monday June 11, 2012, 11:00:25 AM. You have so far neglected, or indeed refused. . . to respond to it in any manner whatsoever. If you and/or your client the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations find yourselves unready, unwilling, or indeed just plain unable. . . to provide some credible evidence supporting the Association's rather questionable aka "less than credible" accusation to the effect that I am guilty of making "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", and/or that such allegedly "unfounded and vicious allegations" made against "less than perfect" Unitarian Universalist ministers are actually defamatory to the extent that they constitute the criminal act of blasphemous libel (Criminal Code R.S.C. 1985, c. C.46.1), I hereby demand that you and your client must formally and rapidly withdraw these accusations against me, and officially, adequately, and publicly apologize to me for bringing such deeply insulting and AFA*I*AC quite defamatory accusations against me. In fact, you can inform your client that I am hereby formally demanding that an official UUA apology for bringing this highly questionable accusation against me must be delivered publicly in front of a few thousand UUA delegates by UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales and/or UUA Executive Vice President Kathleen "'Kay" Montgomery during the UUA's so-called "Justice GA" in Phoenix AZ next week if you fail to provide credible evidence that substantiates what UUA internet moderators might describe as "unsubstantiated rumors" about me by 6:00pm Monday June 18, 2012.

Dear Maitre Coulombe,

Since you did not respond to my email copied below, I took matters into my reasonably capable hands and recontacted Daniel Broomfield by phone late last week. It turns out that he had actually sent me an email asking me to contact Pacquette & Associés huissers de justice on Monday June 4th, but his email had been directed into my SPAM folder rather than my email inbox and I had unfortunately neglected to check my SPAM folder for valid emails for several weeks. I made arrangements with Pacquette & Associés to be served by a bailiff at their offices located at 511 Place d'Armes. I now have your original "cease and desist" letter but they did not have your second letter to me which may not require a bailiff to deliver it. I would like to make arrangements with you to collect the second letter and any other documents that you may have for me at this point in time before responding in detail to the contents of your first two letters to me. Please let me know how I may collect your second letter and any additional documents you have prepared for me at this time. I am "out of town" for a few days but can probably pick up documents on Wednesday or Thursday.

There are some points of clarification that need to be made and I don't mind proceeding with one of the most important ones in this email. It will be the only point of clarification that I will deal with until I have collected your second letter to me, which also needs some clarification. As you may be aware, the second purported principle of the Unitarian Universalist Association calls for "justice, equity and compassion in human relations" and determining the Truth, indeed the *whole* Truth, is a very important part of any attempt to obtain, enforce, or create genuine justice. The fourth purported principle of Unitarian Universalism calls for "a free and responsible search for truth and meaning" which lends itself well to genuinely honoring and upholding the second principle of UUism. So please allow me to enter into a free and *responsible* search for truth and meaning of what I consider to be the most serious, and at the same time the most ludicrous, accusation that your client has brought against me.  

In your original letter, your client, the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, alleges that I have made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" and goes on to allege that my allegedly "unfounded and vicious allegations" constitute the criminal act of blasphemous libel. Please allow me to paraphrase UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales' "less than polite" description of the corporate headquarters of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations, located at 25 Beacon Street in Boston, as a place that "reeks of privilege and hierarchy" in saying that this particular accusation brought against me by the UUA positively reeks of self-righteous indignation and hubris. The way the Association's accusation against me is worded can be readily interpreted as constituting an official and categorical denial on the part of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations that *any* of its ministers have ever at any time committed "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape". Is this what the UUA is actually saying in this accusation against me? Because I can assure you that most of the people who have seen and read the first letter that you sent to me via email on June 1st perceive these rather questionable words of the UUA to be a self-righteous denial that any Unitarian Universalist minister has ever at any time committed pedophilia or rape.

Please consult with UUA Executive Vice President Kathleen "'Kay" Montgomery, who I am given to understand is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, and who is also responsible for coordinating the UUA's legal counsel (which presumably includes you and Stikeman Elliott LLP at the moment), and ask 'Kay if this "serious" UUA accusation against me is actually intended to constitute an official denial on the part of the Association that any of its ministers have ever committed "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape". While you are at it you might want to ask 'Kay if she is aware of any Unitarian Universalist ministers who have committed the despicable criminal acts of pedophilia and/or rape. In that she is the person of inherent worth and dignity who is most responsible for coordinating the UUA's legal counsel, and is also involved in the process of handling clergy sexual misconduct complaints brought against "less than perfect" Unitarian Universalist clergy as part of the day-to-day operations of the Unitarian Universalist Association, "'Kay" Montgomery is very well positioned to know about such things. . . If UUA Executive Vice President 'Kay Montgomery acknowledges that a certain number of Unitarian Universalist ministers actually have engaged in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape, regardless of whether or not these "less than perfect" U*U ministers have actually been charged with these criminal acts or convicted of these despicable crimes, then the Unitarian Universalist Association really does need to clearly identify exactly which of my allegedly "vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" are in fact *unfounded* and identify which The Emerson Avenger blog posts these "unfounded" allegations are published in, as you may recall I asked you to do a week ago in now my email titled 'A few More Questions' dated Monday June 4, 2012, if not earlier.   

There is one other matter that I will attend to in this email. The anonymous "collective authorship" of the 'Robin Edgar Sucks' blog are highly skeptical regarding my claims to have been accused of the crime of blasphemous libel by the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) and are demanding proof of this in a blog post titled 'Robin Edgar Served?' It seems that posting an image of the pertinent section of the PDF document that you sent me last Monday is not good enough for these U*Us, nor is my reading the complete text of that document aloud in a few U*UTube videos. I myself, and some of the people who I have shown the print-out of the PDF file to, have had some doubts about whether or not you have actually been hired by the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations. Could you please provide me with some proof that you actually have been mandated by the UUA in this matter? An official letter with UUA Executive Vice President Kathleen "'Kay" Montgomery's signature on it would suffice, but a document with UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales' signature on it would be even better. In the meantime I will most probably post a digital photograph of the actual "hard copy" legal letter that you sent me, dated May 29, 2012, which I picked up from the offices of Pacquette & Associés last week in the hope of proving beyond any reasonable doubt to these and other Unitarian Universalists, not to mention the general public, that I am not "dreaming in Technicolor" or suffering from some kind of psychotic delusion.

That is all for now.

Sincerely,

Robin Edgar

Without Prejudice

Dear Maitre Coulombe,

Thank you for acknowledging receipt of my two previous emails to you responding to your initial email to me. I am currently in the process of drafting a detailed response to your second letter to me in which you unfortunately express doubt about the credibility of some of the claims that I made in my second email to you. Before sending you that detailed response I would like to get the serving of papers taken care of. 

On Monday June 4, 2012 I spoke to Daniel Broomfield of Canaprobe Inc., whom I presume is one of the "investigators" you spoke of in your second letter to me, I told him that I was willing to drop by the offices of Stikeman & Elliott or the bailiff's office to pick up the papers and asked him to get back to me about which option he wanted me to exercise. I provided him with my email address but he has not yet gotten back to me, so I am asking you to decide how to proceed in terms of serving me the existing legal papers. For the time being there is no physical address that I can provide to you for the purpose of serving legal papers to me so, until I decide whether or not I want to establish such a physical address, I will simply pick up legal papers at an address that you provide for that purpose. One other option would be to arrange to have a bailiff serve me with papers in front of the Unitarian Church of Montreal which is located at 5035 Boul. de Maisonneuve O. in the Montréal borough of Notre-Dame de Grace (N.D.G.) when I am engaging in what one female Unitarian Universalist minister long ago described as my "alternative spiritual practice" and another female Unitarian Universalist minister much more recently described as my "prophetic work" of protesting against Unitarian Universalist (UU or U*U) anti-religious intolerance and bigotry, U*U clergy misconduct of all kinds (i.e. not just clergy sexual misconduct such as rape, pedophilia, or swiping your neighbor's wife etc.), and various other U*U injustice and abuses such as the censorship and suppression of legitimate criticism and dissent and the criminalization of whistle-blowers and critics.

For various reasons I think that it would best that you serve me the existing legal papers, which presumably match the PDF files you sent me, before I finalize my detailed response to your second email. I am very free tomorrow so please let me know how you want to proceed in this matter ASAP.

Thank-you,

Robin Edgar

Objet : A Few More Questions Re: Unitarian Universalist Association and al. vs. Yourself
Dear Maitre Coulombe,
 
I have now read and reread the legal letter (mise-en-demeure?) that you sent me in the PDF file attached to your initial email which was sent to me last Friday, i.e. June 1, 2012.
 
I regret to have to inform you that I'm having considerable difficulty finding The Emerson Avenger blog posts that match some of the descriptions/accusations that you have made in that two page letter. 
 
I am asking you to facilitate the process of finding these blog posts and/or photographs so that I may decide how to govern myself by clearly identifying the The Emerson Avenger blog posts in question by providing me with the URL where they are located and/or their blog title and/or the date that they were posted to the internet. Needless to say it is simply not possible for me to remove The Emerson Avenger blog posts and/or photographs posted to "the blog" that I am unable to find. 
 
Needless to say I am most concerned about appropriately dealing with those The Emerson Avenger blog posts which you, and presumably by extension your primary client the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations (the "Association"), have clearly alleged constitute the criminal act of blasphemous libel (Criminal Code R.S.C. 1985, c. C.46.1). Could you please direct me to those The Emerson Avenger blog posts which you and the Unitarian Universalist Association believe contain the "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" that you are accusing me of by providing me with the URLs where they are located and/or their blog title and/or the date upon which they were posted to the internet? Presumably you have in your possession downloads of these The Emerson Avenger blog posts which you may present as court exhibits if and when you decide to actually have me charged the crime of blasphemous libel if I should fail or refuse to comply with your demand to remove them from The Emerson Avenger blog. It is pretty much impossible for me to govern myself in compliance with your demand that I "take down" these "web postings" aka blog posts if I cannot even find The Emerson Avenger blog posts that these allegedly "unfounded and vicious allegations" are published in.
 
I am similarly having considerable difficulty finding the photographs of a female Unitarian Universalist minister (whom you fail to name) which you allege have the word "bitch" superimposed on them. I quite thoroughly scoured The Emerson Avenger blog over the weekend trying to find these photographs and could not find these photographs, so I am now obliged to ask you to provide me with URLs where these photographs are located and/or the title of The Emerson Avenger blog post that they are posted to and/or the date that they were posted to The Emerson Avenger blog. 
 
Needless to say the requests of the Unitarian Universalist Association and/or a number of its women Unitarian Universalist ministers ( whom you fail to name) that you have communicated to me in your legal letter cannot possibly be fully implemented by the close of business on June 4, 2012 (i.e. later today) if I am unable to even find The Emerson Avenger blog posts. If for some reason you are unable to provide the URLs and/or The Emerson Avenger blog post titles where these photographs have been posted to the internet aka "the web" you could none-the-less assist me in possibly locating these photographs by providing me with the name of the female Unitarian Universalist minister in question and I will run some image searches with the name of the minister along with the word "bitch" and see what, if anything, those image searches find. I will then be able to make an informed decision as to how I should govern myself.
 
That is all for now. 
 
Thank you,
 
Robin Edgar

Lance Armstrong Style Legal Bullying And Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors - What's The Connection?

How about the Unitarian Universalist Association Of Congregations' immoral and unethical, borderline criminal, outrageously hypocritical, and stunningly hubristic attempt to misuse and abuse Canada's simply embarrassing blasphemy law in a deeply misguided and shamefully cynical effort to intimidate me into deleting aka memory-holing a number of The Emerson Avenger blog posts about certain "less than perfect" Unitarian Universalists who have not only engaged in "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", but have actually been convicted of engaging in "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape". . .

It is always gratifying to see that *someone* at Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors is still visiting The Emerson Avenger blog, more than fifteen months after "less than brilliant" Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors attack dog aka *solicitor* aka litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe had the unmitigated gall to falsely accuse me of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel on the unfounded basis that I have made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the (Unitarian Universalist) Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape". Not that, if I actually was guilty of making "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the (Unitarian Universalist) Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", such ordinary civil libel would *really* amount to the archaic (dare I say "obsolete"?) criminal act of blasphemous libel in any case. . . Doh!

So *I* think that it is long overdue for Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors and their "less than honest" client the Unitarian Universalist Association Of Congregations to get off the proverbial pot, unless of course they would prefer to "shit". . .

Thirty Days Of Love 2014 And UU Clergy Abuse Victims - What's The Connection?

How about this comment that I just submitted in response to a blog post by the Standing on the Side of Love Campaign's Program Assistant Meredith Lukow announcing the Third Annual Thirty Days Of Love from from January 18 through February 16, 2014?


"How about if during this time, UU folks all across the country (and even the UU World!) spread love and justice for UU clergy abuse victims in truly inspiring ways?"


I mean what better time for Unitarian Universalists to commit to a period of intentional action, service, education, and reflection about UU clergy misconduct aka UU clergy abuse than the Third Annual Thirty Days of Love?

Well, other than the previous two Thirty Days of Love of course. . .

Better several decades late than never eh UUs?

Week One UUs can kick off the week with MLK Day and set aside time for congregational self-examination and reflection about The White Niggers Of The UU World aka UU clergy abuse victims.

Look for resources on furthering your restorative justice work.

Week Two: Sharing UU Clergy Abuse Stories

Sunday, Jan. 26: Suggested worship service themes *could* include exploring your UU community’s “Story of Self, Us, & Now” and using stories about UU clergy abuse to make the invisible visible.

What to Expect: Resources for telling your own congregations story as well as stories from past and present Transcendentalist Super Heroes. Help UUs envision what their UU clergy abuse stories will be in the future and how UUs can get to that place.

Week Three: Building Bridges of Love For UU Clergy Abuse Victims

Sunday, Feb. 2: Suggested worship service themes include “where is your radical love and restorative justice for ALL UU clergy misconduct victims?” TEA encourages UUs to give out Courageous Justice Awards and focus on the idea of radical Truth telling.

What to Expect: A chance for UUs to reach out past walls, barriers, or borders and engage in places UUs don’t usually go. . .

Week Four: Pause, Reflect, Celebrate!

Sunday, Feb. 9: Celebrate love – what justice victories does your UU community have to offer UU clergy abuse victims this year? This could be anything from a new anti-anal impalement "guideline" in the UUMA Guidelines to an emerging partnership with UU Safety Net (to say nothing of The Emerson Avenger himself) to the opening of a new UU Clergy Abuse Heritage And Vision Center.

What to Expect: Since our protest campaign kicked off in 1998, we have helped expose UU clergy abuse in 53 states* and DC. These are HUGE victories! Plus, the U*U Jihad Navy turns nine years old in 2014. Look for inspiration from Peacebang aka Rev. Dr. Vicki The Impaler on lifting up *these* Big Fat U*U Milestones in your community.

On February 16, we invite you to end the Thirty Days of Love with Share the Love With UU Clergy Abuse Victims Sunday, a chance for your congregation to give back and help initiate currently non-existent UUA restorative justice work.

We hope that UUs will start to think about how UUs can lift up these weekly themes in your UUA congregation or community. Over the course of the next several months, we will be sharing more information on our plans for the third annual Thirty Days of Love For UU Clergy Abuse Victims. Bookmark our Thirty Days 2014 webpage today so you will always have the most current resources at your fingertips!

I can’t wait to embark on this spiritual journey for restorative justice with UUs.

In faith,

Robin Edgar aka The Emerson Avenger



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