UUA Moderator Jim Key And UUA Board Trustees Get An "Electronic Communication" Regarding UUA President Rev. Peter Morales' FAILure To Reach Out In Love To ALL UU Clergy Misconduct Victims
Fw: Peter Morales letter
The email that I am forwarding to you was sent to UU clergy misconduct expert Rev. Deborah Pope-Lance regarding an email that had I sent to UUA President Rev. Peter Morales a week earlier on Tuesday February 2nd, 2010. I am forwarding both of these emails to you because the "new and improved" Yahoo! email service doesn't allow me to forward only the email that was sent to President Peter Morales. That four year old email communicates my past, present, and indeed future position regarding UUA apologies to UU clergy misconduct victims, UU clergy misconduct whistleblowers, and UU clergy misconduct critics.
Sadly, UUA President Rev. Peter Morales not only FAILed to reach out in love in response to my reasonable request that he "stand on the side of love" for ALL UU clergy misconduct victims during the observance of “National Standing on the Side of Love Day" on Sunday, February 14th, 2010, but he has since authorized the UUA's Canadian attorneys to falsely accuse me of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel in immoral and unethical legal bullying that is quite evidently intended to intimidate me into "memory holing" The Emerson Avenger blog posts about Unitarian Universalists who committed various forms of clergy misconduct, some of whom have even been charged, tried and convicted of committing what the UUA's Canadian attorney describes as "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape."
Imagine where we might be today of President Morales had actually practiced "reaching out in love" when I sent him this email over four years ago, instead of not only totally ignoring it, but just over 2 years later over-reaching out (dare I say striking out?) in arrogant and aggressive legal bullying that was and still IS completely antithetical to not only what I requested of him in this email, but is all but completely antithetical to pretty much every principle and ideal that the Unitarian Universalist religious community pretends to stand for.
As much as I am gratified to learn that the Jim Key led UUA Board of Trustees has voted to deliver a long overdue second UUA apology to victims of UU clergy sexual misconduct during the upcoming UUA GA in Providence Rhode Island, I am none-the-less quite disappointed that the UUA Board chose to exclude victims of non-sexual forms of clergy misconduct from this second UUA apology. I am also concerned that the sincerity, integrity and credibility of this second UUA apology to clergy sexual misconduct victims will inevitably be compromised by the fact that the Rev. Peter Morales UUA administration, with the full knowledge and consent of both the Gini Courter led UUA Board and now the Jim Key led UUA Board, is still obstinately refusing to formally withdraw and publicly apologize for its immoral, unethical, and borderline criminal attempted misuse of Canadian blasphemy law to conceal online evidence of some of the worst forms of Unitarian Universalist clergy sexual misconduct, specifically "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape."
I thus reach out in love for ALL victims of ALL forms of UUA clergy abuse, including indirect victims such as not only the victims' own families and their respective UU congregations, but also clergy abuse whistleblowers and critics who are all too often ignored, ostracized, and even bullied and intimidated in various ways, by reminding to you that it would be advisable for you to vote to censure the Rev. Peter Morales administration for the inept legal bullying that the UUA engaged in just over two years ago in June of 2012, formally withdraw any and ALL outright false or highly misleading accusations that were brought against me in the two arrogant and aggressive cease and desist demand letters that Stikeman Elliot Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe sent to me, and *publicly* apologize to me for engaging in said legal bullying, as I have been quite reasonably demanding for two years now.
The Emerson Avenger blog post linked to below reproduces the email that I sent to the Gini Courter led UUA Board of Trustees well over a year ago now, demanding that the UUA Board must censure the Peter Morales UUA administration for this immoral and unethical legal bullying -
I am giving some consideration to giving Rev. Peter Morales himself a final opportunity to personally and publicly apologize for his role in this shameful UUA legal bullying that quite obviously seeks to conceal both sexual and non-sexual clergy misconduct in front of UUA delegates during the 2014 UUA GA, but I have not yet made up my mind about whether or not to reach out in love to President Morales when he has not only obstinately refused to reach out in love to me and other victims of UU clergy abuse after repeated requests that he do so, but has actively lashed out at me with arrogant and aggressive legal bullying that most people of conscience will readily agree is a shameful misuse and abuse of his power and authority as President of the UUA.
One thing is certain, if the 2014 UUA GA in Providence Rhode Island concludes with the Jim Key led UUA Board of Trustees still refusing to hold the President Morales UUA administration properly and fully accountable for this attempted institutional cover-up and denial of UUA clergy abuse which includes "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", the sincerity, integrity, and credibility of the UUA's second apology to clergy sexual misconduct victims will be compromised and called into question, as will the integrity and credibility of the Jim Key led UUA Board of Trustees itself.
DO GOVERN YOURSELVES ACCORDINGLY

You are on record as saying that you are "absolutely committed to doing the right thing" when it comes to taking action on clergy sexual misconduct, and that taking action is a "moral imperative." I put it to you that taking responsible action on non-sexual forms of clergy misconduct is equally a moral imperative or moral obligation, and I call upon you to fully commit yourself to doing the right thing in response to all forms of clergy misconduct committed by UU ministers. The fact of the matter is that some of the more serious cases of non-sexual clergy misconduct can be every bit as harmful and damaging to victims and implicated UU congregations as some cases of clergy sexual misconduct.
