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.

GroundHog Day And The Shadow Of UUA Clergy Sexual Misconduct - What's The Connection?

When I poked my head out of my burrow on GroundHog Day 2014 this morning I did not see my shadow because the sky was quite overcast. I did however see a HUGE shadow of UUA complicity in UU clergy misconduct of ALL kinds hovering above The Place That Reeks of Privilege And Hierarchy And Stinks To High Heaven Of Complicity In ALL Manner Of UU Clergy Abuse aka UUA corporate headquarters at 25 Beacon Street in Boston, Massachusetts.

So. . .

Taking a cue from the UUA's Standing On The Side of Love campaign, I ever so U*Unilaterally decided that I am going to hereby "re-envision" GroundHog Day as Revealing The Shadow Of Unitarian Universalist Clergy Misconduct Day.

For the first observance of Revealing The Shadow Of Unitarian Universalist Clergy Misconduct Day I thought that it would be a good idea to bring to light just how HUGE that Big Fat U*U Shadow actually is.

As reported publicly in this quite revealing, and apparently somewhat pain-filled... audio recording of a reading by Jeff Schatz, which is available on the Safe Congregation archived section of the website of the Unitarian Universalist Church in Reston Virginia, according to UUA clergy misconduct expert Rev. Deborah Pope-Lance, there are no less than 400 UUA congregations that have been negatively affected by one form of UU clergy sexual misconduct or another. According to Jeff Schatz,

"A group of interim ministers tried to figure out how many UU churches had experienced such ministerial misconduct. Rev. Pope-Lance said that the group of ministers tired of their efforts after naming 400. Even just in the last year, of the 12 negotiated resignations, where ministers are asked to leave, 9 of them were in congregations who had experienced clergy sexual misconduct."

So a free and responsible search for the Truth and meaning of Jeff Schatz's words here reveals that, at rock bottom minimum... 400 Unitarian Universalist churches have been negatively affected by one form of clergy sexual misconduct or another. This is the minimum number of UU churches in which clergy sexual misconduct has actually been reported, and *presumably* where formal clergy misconduct complaints have been filed against the misconducting UU ministers in question and they have been found guilty of clergy sexual misconduct by the UUA's department of ministry.

I used to be a member of a church that was affected by sexual misconduct by the minister. This was after listening to so many anti straight white male sermons from the pulpit. Naturally, the minister was a lesbian. The Unitarians seem to follow the modern liberal narrative and have just as little respect fir the law as other political liberals.

It's good to discover this blog.

Thanks for your comment Matt. I consider myself to be a classic liberal, as per the dictionary definition of the word, but I would be the first to agree that many if not most Unitarian Universalists and other pseudo-liberals have seriously devalued the word liberal.

As for respect for the law, both the Unitarian Church of Montreal and the Unitarian Universalist Association have attempted to misuse the Canadian Criminal Code to force an end to my protest or punish me for protesting.
