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.

Rev. Cynthia Landrum Can See A Penis And A Vagina And A Rocket And ALL That In The New UUA Branding Logo. . .

As stated in this comment posted in response to Rev. Tom Schade's 'Painful' blog post, but for some strange reason. . . Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum can't seem to bring herself to "see" what the Big Fat U*U Problem is with her and other people, perhaps especially non-U*Us. . . seeing "a penis and a vagina and a rocket and ALL that" in the UUA's brand-spanking new corporate branding* logo. And this surprises me, because Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum is a former member of the UUA's Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee which, amongst other things, supposedly deals with disciplining "less than perfect" Unitarian Universalist ministers who "engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", or who engage in less serious forms of clergy sexual misconduct aka clergy sexual abuse such as coveting their congregant's wife or posting an obscene and Sadistic Big Fat U*U Sodomy Fantasy to their pseudonymous Peacebang blog.

It is thus quite puzzling to me how Rev. Landrum is quite evidently unready, unwilling, and possibly even psychologically unable, to "see" how the Unitarian Universalist Association's brand-spanking new UUA "branding" logo, which can be quite readily perceived as a rocket-propelled penis blasting its way into a vagina, to say nothing of a flaming torch embedded in the anal canal of a "less than perfect" Republican senator. . . poses something of a Big Fat U*U Problem for not only the UUA aka U*U eh?, but for the larger Unitarian Universalist religious community aka The U*U Movement that it ostensibly represents to the world.

I mean *really*. . . is former MFC member Rev. Dr. Cynthia Landrum genuinely incapable of "seeing" how the new UUA "branding" logo, with "a penis and a vagina and a rocket and all that" being more than readily perceivable within it, is the absolute LAST thing that a religious organization which has "a terrible track record", indeed a genuinely shameful legacy. . . of negligence towards, and complicity in, ALL kinds of clergy sexual misconduct engaged in by hundreds of "less than perfect" Unitarian Universalist ministers needs to identify itself to the general public with? Even if the UUA, and at least 400 UUA congregations, did not actually possess such a shameful legacy of UU clergy sexual misconduct, and willful or effective complicity therein. . . the UUA's rocket-propelled phallus entering vagina logo cum Statue of Liberty's torch embedded in Republican senator's anal canal logo never-the-less has the Big Fat U*U Potential to ensure that The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion aka The U*U Movement becomes the Big Fat U*U Laughing Stock of the world's religions.

And *that* DO kinda suck, don't it U*Us?

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

For the record, Robin, I was never on the MFC except for one session as the student liaison. To characterize me as a former MFC member is misleading.

And while "I can see" how people see those things in the new logo, or a tulip, or a bomb, or the eye of Sauron, as Tom Schade said in the post I was commenting on, "That's about you, not the logo." When I look at it what I see is a chalice, a flame, and two Us.

Thanks for your comment Rev. Landrum. My information about your involvement with the UUA's Ministerial Fellowship Committee comes from your own previous testimony elsewhere on the internet. I think it was gleaned from information that you posted to your blogger profile, but that information has apparently since been changed. If what I said here is misleading, it is only because your own words left me with the distinct impression that you had in the past been a full-fledged member of the UUA's ever so aptly named Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee. In light of the MFC's lamentable track record in responding to all manner of clergy misconduct complaints, which is finally being dealt with by the UUA Board of Trustees, I can well understand your desire to play down your past involvement with the Ministerial Complicity Committee. ;-)

I am just having a bit of waggish fun with the fact that you did publicly acknowledge that you are in fact just as capable of perceiving a penis and*or a vagina and*or a rocket and*or vibrator etc. etc. in the new UUA branding logo as anyone else is. The fact that a penis*condom and vagina*uterus CAN be quite readily perceived within the UUA's new branding logo are just a tad problematic, perhaps especially in light of the UUA's Truly pathetic responses to numerous cases of U*U clergy sexual misconduct over the years. The UUA risks having quite a bit of fun poked at it over the next several years, and not just by members in The U*U Movement itself.

Update: I said in my response to Rev. Cynthia Landrum that past UUA mishandling of UU clergy sexual misconduct complaints "is finally being dealt with by the UUA Board of Trustees", and I believed this to be so in early 2014. Unfortunately, it seems that the UUA Board of Trustees swept everything under the rug in its "less than honest" UUA Board apology to victims of UU clergy sexual misconduct aka clergy sex abuse that UUA Moderator Jim Key sandwiched into the middle of his first Moderator's Report to a UUA GA in late June 2014, and proceeded to do very little to provide any tangible "justice, equity and compassion" to past victims-survivors of UU clergy sex abuse, and soon dropped the ball on implementing significant reform of the UUA's seriously flawed policies and procedures for handling clergy misconduct complaints.

And so it goes U*Us. . .
