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: http://revelationisnotsealed.homestead.com - 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: http://creationday.homestead.com - 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.

Pete Seeger Sings 'Waist Deep In The Big Muddy' For UUA President Peter Morales, UUA Moderator Jim Key And ALL UUA Trustees. . .

American icon and famous Unitarian Universalist folk singer Pete Seeger left this mortal coil yesterday. His folk song 'Waist Deep In The Big Muddy' is SO applicable to how the Rev. Peter Morales administration incredibly foolishly overplayed its hand by falsely accusing me of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel in June of 2012, and has yet to responsibly change its Bat Shit Crazy course of legal action, that I am posting the lyrics of Pete Seeger's 'Waist Deep In The Big Muddy' intact with no changes whatsoever, but with pertinent links to online information about how the UUA is in over its head when it comes to institutional denial of UU clergy misconduct of all kinds including, its denial that certain ministers of the Unitarian Universalist Association not only "engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", but have actually been convicted of pedophilia or rape.


It was back in nineteen forty-two,
I was a member of a good platoon.
We were on maneuvers in-a Loozianna,
One night by the light of the moon.
The captain told us to ford a river,
That's how it all begun.
We were -- knee deep in the Big Muddy,
But the big fool said to push on.

The Sergeant said, "Sir, are you sure,
This is the best way back to the base?"
"Sergeant, go on! I forded this river
'Bout a mile above this place.
It'll be a little soggy but just keep slogging.
We'll soon be on dry ground."
We were -- waist deep in the Big Muddy
And the big fool said to push on.

The Sergeant said, "Sir, with all this equipment
No man will be able to swim."
"Sergeant, don't be a Nervous Nellie,"
The Captain said to him.
"All we need is a little determination;
Men, follow me, I'll lead on."
We were -- neck deep in the Big Muddy
And the big fool said to push on.

All at once, the moon clouded over,
We heard a gurgling cry.
A few seconds later, the captain's helmet
Was all that floated by.
The Sergeant said, "Turn around men!
I'm in charge from now on."
And we just made it out of the Big Muddy
With the captain dead and gone.

We stripped and dived and found his body
Stuck in the old quicksand.
I guess he didn't know that the water was deeper
Than the place he'd once before been.
Another stream had joined the Big Muddy
'Bout a half mile from where we'd gone.
We were lucky to escape from the Big Muddy
When the big fool said to push on.

Well, I'm not going to point any moral;
I'll leave that for yourself
Maybe you're still walking, you're still talking
You'd like to keep your health.
But every time I read the papers
That old feeling comes on;
We're -- waist deep in the Big Muddy
And the big fool says to push on.

Waist deep in the Big Muddy
And the big fool says to push on.
Waist deep in the Big Muddy
And the big fool says to push on.
Waist deep! Neck deep! Soon even a
Tall man'll be over his head, we're
Waist deep in the Big Muddy!
And the big fool says to push on!

Reverend Doctor Martin Luther King Jr. Quotations And Unitarian Universalist Injustices, Abuses, Hypocrisy AND Stupidity - What's The Connection?

How about this updated and annotated version of this 6 year old blog post? Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Quotes Pertinent To U*U Injustices, Abuses, Hypocrisy, And Yes. . . Stupidity

There can be no deep disappointment where there is not deep love.

Freedom is never voluntarily given by the Unitarian Universalist oppressor(s); it must be demanded by those oppressed by Unitarian Universalists.

Unitarian Universalists who passively accept evil are as much involved in it as U*Us who help to perpetrate it. Unitarian Universalists who accept evil without protesting against it ARE really cooperating with it.

Unitarian Universalist lives begin to end the day corpse-cold Unitarians become silent about things that matter.

Unitarian Universalists will have to repent in this generation not merely for the hateful words and actions of the bad Unitarian Universalists but for the appalling silence of the "good" Unitarian Universalists.

Unitarian Universalist progress is neither automatic nor inevitable... Every step toward the goal of justice requires sacrifice, suffering, and struggle; the tireless exertions and passionate concern of dedicated individuals like that Transcendentalist Super Hero known as The Emerson Avenger.

Almost always, the creative dedicated minority has made the UU World better, but every now and then the creative dedicated minority such as Peacebang or Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe has made the UU World worse. . .

The hope of a secure and livable UU World lies with disciplined nonconformists who are dedicated to justice, peace and brotherhood.

Unitarian Universalist salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted Transcendentalist Super Hero known as The Emerson Avenger.

Transcendentalist Super Heroes who engage in nonviolent direct action are not the creators of tension. We merely bring to the surface the hidden tension that is already alive.

Nonviolence means avoiding not only external physical violence but also internal violence of Big Fat U*U Evil Spirit known as Peacebang. Peacebang not only chooses to anally impale a man on the Statue of Liberty's torch, but Peacebang chooses to kick people in the teeth.

Law and order exist for the purpose of establishing justice and when Canada's blasphemy law FAILs in this purpose it has become the dangerously structured damnation that blocks the flow of social progress.

An individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who willingly accepts the penalty of imprisonment in order to arouse the conscience of the Unitarian Universalist community over its injustice, is in reality expressing the highest respect for the law.

Rarely do we find Unitarian Universalists who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost Unitarian Universalist quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some Unitarian Universalists more than having to THINK.

A nation or civilization, or indeed a Tiny Declining Fringe Religion that continues to protect hard-nosed women, to say nothing of soft-minded women. . . purchases its own spiritual death on The Emerson Avenger's installment plan.

Nothing in all the UU World is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.

The time is always right for Unitarian Universalists to do what is right.

Take the first step in faith. UUs don't have to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.

If Unitarian Universalists are to go forward, Unitarian Universalists must go back and rediscover those precious values - that ALL reality hinges on moral foundations and that ALL reality has spiritual control.

When UUs are right UUs cannot be too radical; when U*Us are wrong, U*Us cannot be too conservative.

The limitation of Big Fat U*U Riots, moral questions aside, is that they cannot win and their participants know it. Hence, Big Fat U*U Rioting is not revolutionary but reactionary because it invites defeat. It involves an emotional catharsis, but it must be followed by a sense of Big Fat U*U Futility.

We may have all come on different ships, but we're in the same U*U Boat now.

We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as Big Fat U*U Fools.

We must build dikes of courage to hold back the flood of fear of The Emerson Avenger.

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.

Whatever affects The Emerson Avenger directly, affects ALL Unitarian Universalists indirectly. I can never be what I ought to be until U*Us are what U*Us ought to be. This is the interrelated structure of reality.

Traditional English TEA Time UUA Board Of Trustees What's The Connection?

How about this most recent electronic communication that The Emerson Avenger aka TEA just sent to the UUA Moderator Jim Key and the "new" UUA Board of Trustees during traditional English afternoon TEA time which starts at 4 o'clock in the afternoon give or take an hour. 
Today at 4:05 PM

Me
To jkey@uua.orgboard@uua.orggseavey@firstuunashville.org and 1 More...

Congratulations!

Those current UUA Trustees who received this "electronic communication" that was sent to former UUA Moderator Gini Courter and the UUA Board of Trustees one year ago today, on Friday January 18, 2013, have been in shameful silent complicity with the Peter Morales administrations immoral, unethical, borderline criminal, outrageously hypocritical, and stunningly hubristic (not to mention Bat Shit Crazy) Lance Armstrong style legal bullying, to say nothing of the UUA clergy misconduct that it quite evidently sought to suppress evidence of on the internet... for a complete circuit of the UU World around the sun.

Well done. . .

And to think that this was not even the first email that I sent to the UUA Board demanding that it actually practice justice, equity and compassion in human relations instead of just emptily and insincerely paying lip service to this and other claimed principles and ideals of Unitarian Universalism.

Hopefully you will do a little better at actually practicing what Unitarian Universalism preaches, to say nothing of living up to the letter of your own personal religious rhetoric that is available on the ever so interconnected and interdependent web of internet. . . during the January 2014 Board of Trustees meeting(s) next weekend.

DO GOVERN YOURSELVES ACCORDINGLY

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.

Does The UUA Board Of Trustees Believe That Ignoring Big Fat U*U Reality Is The Next Best Thing To Changing It?

I mean let's face it U*Us. . .

The UUA Board of Trustees has been foolishly ignoring *this* Big Fat U*U Reality, and the Big Fat U*U Fact that I have been loudly and publicly demanding that the UUA Board of Trustees MUST officially censure the Peter Morales UUA administration for ever so hypocritically, ever so hubristically, and indeed ever so shamelessly dreaming up *that* Bat Shit Crazy Big Fat U*U Reality, as well as *this* closely related Big Fat U*U "Reality" in the latter days of May, and the early days of June, in The Year Of Our Lord 2012.

Please forgive me U*Us, for casting Pearls Before Swine with a little bit of help from cartoonist Stephan Pastis. . .


Do U*Us know what that Transcendentalist Super Hero known U*U World-wide as The Emerson Avenger likes about incredibly foolish U*Us who choose the Big Fat U*U Fate of knowingly and willfully burying their heads in the sand like proverbial ostriches?

It makes it SO much easier to deliver a VERY well-deserved kick to their Big Fat U*U Tushies, just like Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang aka Reverend Doctor Vicki The Impaler did with a "less then perfect" U*U youth some years ago now. . .

Just saying. . .

How About Some Yom Kippur Repentance By The UUA?

To James Key gseavey@firstuunashville.org + 1 other


Today at 4:38 PM

Dear UUA Trustees,

What part of -

"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."

Did you FAIL to understand?

It is now exactly four months aka one third of a year since I sent you this electronic communication dated Friday the 13th of September, 2013, and 5 days short of a full year aka a complete orbit of the Earth around the sun since I sent the Gini Courter "moderated" UUA Board of Trustees the email dated January 18, 2013 that my
Friday the 13th email calls your attention to. Yet there is ZERO evidence that you have deigned to respond in anything even remotely resembling *responsibility* to the Spirit and indeed letter of these and other electronic communications that I have sent to the UUA Board of Trustees ever since the Peter Morales administration in its dubious wisdom had the unmitigated gall to falsely accuse 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."

What kind of "luck" do you think you are making for yourselves, the UUA, and the greater Unitarian Universalist "religion" (to borrow a little slight from "Rev." "Dr." Peter Morales...) by ever so consistently FAILing, and apparently even obstinately refusing, to so much as officially acknowledge receipt of my electronic communications pray tell?

Here's the deal. . .

UUA Moderator Jim Key, and every single individual UUA Trustee, will not only individually acknowledge receipt of this most recent email to the Board, but will provide an individual personal response to me apologizing to me for all of their previous FAILures to respond in responsibility tio the Spirit. Jim Key gets a bit of a break here because he has at least had the human decency to speak with me the phone, and has at least sent me a couple of emails in his capacity as UUA Moderator, even if these emails failed to address my grievances arising from the UUA's Bat Shit Crazy Lance Armstrong style legal bullying that you have ALL FAILed to responsibly censure and officially and publicly repudiate.

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/2013/01/uua-board-of-trustees-censure-peter.html

Please allow me to remind you of some VERY pertinent quotations that are VERY applicable to your past and ongoing negligence and, at minimum, four months worth of silent complicity in the Peter Morales' administration's immoral, unethical, borderline criminal, outrageously hypocritical, stunningly hubristic and, one more time. . . BAT SHIT CRAZY legal intimidation that seeks to cover-up and hide UUA clergy abuse that ranges from comparatively minor insults and defamation, through an obscene and Sadistic "sodomy fantasy" courtesy of "Reverend" "Doctor" Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang, up to and including "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" engaged in by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" to borrow some choice phrases of Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe.

"False words spoken or written by "less than excellent" U*U clergy and-or "less than honest" UUA leaders and-or "less than Truthful" Stikeman Elliott attorneys are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the whole wide UU World with evil."

Socrates

"The UU World is a dangerous place to live; not because of the UU clergy who are evil, but because of the UUA leaders who don't do anything about it."

Albert Einstein


"Non-cooperation with Unitarian Universalist evil is as much a duty as is cooperation with Unitarian Universalist good."

Mahatma Gandhi

"Unitarian Universalists who passively accept evil are as much involved in it as those evil U*Us who help to perpetrate it. U*Us who accept U*U Evil without protesting against it are *really* cooperating with it."

Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

DO GOVERN YOURSELVES ACCORDINGLY NOW, DURING THE UPCOMING JANUARY 2014 UUA BOARD OF TRUSTEES MEETING, AND INTO THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE OF THE UU WORLD

Please forgive me for going all The Emerson Avenger on you, but it *is* TEA Time. :-)

UUA Moderator Jim Key Has An Inter-National Conversation On UU Clergy Misconduct With The Emerson Avenger

UUA Moderator Jim Key signed UU Safety Net's Change.org petition calling for to start a National Conversation On Clergy Misconduct in the UUA, i.e. a national conversation about the UUA shameful legacy of decades worth of negligence towards, and complicity in, ALL manner of clergy misconduct including, but by NO means limited to what Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe would characterize as "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape."

The three U*UTube videos posted below document my side of what could be properly described as an InterNational Conversation on UUA Clergy Misconduct that I had with
UUA Moderator Jim Key over four months ago now in early September of 2013. As much as I appreciate Jim Key agreeing to engage in this conversation with me, I have to report that I am "less than impressed" with the subsequent FAILure of the Jim Key and the UUA Board of Trustees to respond in responsibility to the spirit of our Conversation on UUA Clergy Misconduct and the previous and subsequent "electronic communications" aka emails that I sent to Jim Key and the UUA Board of Trustees. I am posting these videos publicy in the hope that they will be a significant contribution to the National Conversation on UUA Clergy Misconduct that Jim Key and various other UUA leaders agreed to engage in in 2014.

Montreal Unitarian Margo Ellis Is Clearly A Bully Who Chose The Fate Of Assaulting Me With A Body Check Despite Having Seen Me Standing Up For Myself From Several Meters Away. . .

But don't take *my* word for it U*Us. . .

Take the word of one Paul Broomfield, as posted in his comment on a recent Montreal Gazette article by Monique Muise entitled -

What are your rights when dealing with police?

Robin Edgar Margo Ellis is clearly a bully and chose to knock you over despite having seen you standing there from several meters away.
What a horrible woman.
Thanks for posting the video.




Here is how I responded to Paul Broomfield in a follow-up comment -

Yes Paul, Margo Ellis is indeed a "clearly a bully" who chose deliberately to body check me with her elbow in my gut when she could have easily passed me on the sidewalk to my left as I gave her PLENTY of room to do by moving to my right. The most horrible aspect of this however is not the comparatively minor assault itself, but the fact that there is evidence strongly suggesting that she subsequently called in a false report to the SPVM accusing me of knocking her to the ground or persuaded another Montreal Unitarian to do that dirty deed which is a crime known as public mischief. I will not only be seeking to have Margo Ellis charged with assault but will be seeking to have whoever called in the false report to the SPVM to be charged with public mischief.

This is FAR from being the first time that outrageously hypocritical Montreal Unitarians have made false reports to the police seeking to incriminate me, so that they can force an end to my protest with a court ordered injunction or a restraining order. In fact Margo Ellis was involved in a similar false report to the police accusing me of assault in November of 2010, but thankfully the polite and professional SPVM police officer who handled that complaint took me at my word that I had not so much as touched a Montreal Unitarian during my protest that night let alone assaulted one. Even then I was running video almost constantly to protect myself from false accusations made by Montreal Unitarians, and have video evidence of Margo Ellis apparently trying to persuade the police officers to arrest me that night.

Unitarian Universalist Church Hypocrisy And "Less Than Inspiring" UUA Membership Statistics - What's The Connection?

How about the readily verifiable fact that a free and responsible Google search for the Truth and meaning of. . .

Unitarian Universalist Church Hypocrisy

engaged in by a person of inherent worth and dignity in Paso Robles, California, led them to read The Emerson Avenger blog post titled -

Unitarian Universalist Association Membership Statistics For 2013 Are "Less Than Inspiring". . .

and then spent over half an hour of their precious time engaging in a free and responsible search for the Truth and meaning of as to why. . .

Unitarian Universalism IS Declining

Just for starters?

Of course there is MUCH more to the interconnection between Unitarian Universalist "church" hypocrisy and the readily verifiable FACT that less than 200,000 North Americans deign to join a Unitarian Universalist "church" aka a "Less Than Welcoming" Welcoming Congregation of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations. In fact only about half that many card-carrying Unitarian Universalists even bother to attend a hypocritical Unitarian Universalist church on any given #UUSunday. . .

For a VERY recent example of Unitarian Universalist "church" hypocrisy here is a link to my blog post about how Unitarian Universalist "church lady" Margo Ellis flagrantly flaunted MOST if not ALL Unitarian Universlist principles and ideals by not only physically assaulting me last #UUSunday, but then apparently decided to commit the crime of public mischief by making a false report to Montreal's SPVM police force falsely accusing me of assaulting her by pushing her to the ground, when I had done no such thing.

Where is the justice, equity and compassion in human relations in *that* U*Us?

How does *that* honour and uphold Unitarian Universalism's 6th principle which calls upon Unitarian Universalists to work towards the goal of world community with peace, liberty and justice for ALL?

DO tell U*Us. . .

And, needless to say. . .

*That* little incident last #UUSunday is FAR from being the only, or indeed WORST, example of outrageous hypocrisy on the part of Unitarian Universalist "church" goers, to say absolutely nothing of outrageously hypocritical U*U clergy and UUA leaders. . . that Yours Truly can and WILL present to both the UU World, but also the real world in mainstream media in the coming weeks and months.

Will UUA Trustee Rev. Clyde Grubbs And ALL Other UUA Board Members Responsibly Redress Their Sin Of Omission Of FAILing To Respond In Responsibility To The Spirit That Bloweth Up UUA Bullshit?

(This blog post is a work in progress and will be edited over the weekend)

In comments on Rev. Tom Schade's 'Too Political and Not Spiritual Enough' blog post, UUA Trustee Rev. Clyde Grubbs says,

"Gandhi would have us have a better religion so that we might have a better politics, and a better politics so that we might have a better religion."

and

"At some point in the development of a post secualar yet engaged theology of pubic engagment (sic), we need to look at evil in the world. But we also need to look at sin, sinning and being sinners.

Can we think about evil without thinking about responsibility, about sins of commission.

But for us, we someday we need to work on sins of omission as well.

And for that we need sustaining community, sustaining vision and sustaining LOVE for The Emerson avenger and ALL other victims of UU clergy misconduct aka clergy abuse."

Needless to say, Yours Truly looks forward to UUA Trustee Rev. Clyde Grubbs and ALL other members of the "new" UUA Board of Trustees thinking VERY seriously about the EVIL of the Lance Armstrong style legal bullying that the Rev. Peter Morales Administration is engaged in which, amongst other Big Fat U*U Sins. . . seeks to cover-up and hide the EVIL sins of commission of Rev. Mack W. Mitchell and Richard Buell known as "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", during the January 2014 Board meeting in San Diego, California.

Seth Godin Quite Understandably Delivers A Humiliating Kick In The Crotch To "Less Than Understanding" UUA Leaders. . .

Without further ado herewith is my plagU*URized version of Seth Godin's The hard work of understanding blog post -

Sometimes, we U*Us are so eager to have an opinion that we U*Us skip the step of working to understand.

Why is it the way it is?

Why does Robin Edgar believe what he believes?

We U*Us skip reading the whole thing, because it's easier to jump to what we U*Us assume the writer meant.

We U*Us skip engaging with customers and stakeholders because it's quicker to assert we U*Us know what they want.

We U*Us skip doing the math, examining the footnotes, recreating the experiment, because it *might* NOT turn out the way we U*Us need it to. . .

We U*Us better hurry, because the firstest, loudest, angriest opinion might sway the crowd.

And of course, it's SO much easier now, because we U*Us all own our own media companies.

UUA Moderator Jim Key Gets Another "Electronic Communication" From Yours Truly Regarding The UUA Board Of Trustees Ongoing FAILure To Respond In Responsibility To The Spirit And Letter Of My Previous "Electronic Communications". . .

Me
To James Key gseavey@firstuunashville.org + 1 other

Today at 9:55 AM
Thor's Day aka Thursday January 9, 2014


Dear Jim,


The lack of communication from the UUA Board of Trustees regarding my VERY serious, and VERY current, concerns about the UUA legal bullying that was initiated in June of 2012, and has yet to be responsibly addressed by the UUA Board, does NOT inspire confidence in your claim that the UUA Board and the Peter Morales administration are taking UUA clergy misconduct and UUA lay leader misconduct seriously.

Au contraire. . .

I have repeatedly shared my concerns with you and the UUA Board in writing with NO response whatsoever to the specific concerns that I have shared with you.

Over three months ago now we had a very good telephone conversation that lasted an hour and half, but there is little or nothing to show for this dialogue in terms of the UUA moving towards a genuinely just, equitable, and compassionate resolution of the significant escalation of the state of conflict between me and the UUA that arises directly out of the false accusations that the UUA brought against me in the two cease and desist demand letters that Stikeman Elliot Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe sent to me over 19 months ago.

As you know, I demanded and am still demanding a formal withdrawal of any and ALL false accusations brought against me by the UUA, as well as a formal and public official apology from the UUA for bringing these false accusations against me. As far as I am concerned the UUA owes an official apology not only to me personally, but to the Unitarian Universalist religious community as a whole for this shameful betrayal of not only most if not ALL UU principles and ideals, but the centuries old Unitarian religious heritage of opposing the use of blasphemy laws. In fact, I believe that the UUA owes an apology to the people of Canada for attempting to misuse Canada's blasphemy law in hubristic Lance Armstrong style legal bullying that was quite evidently intended to intimidate me into "memory holing" some blog posts about Unitarian Universalists who were in fact convicted of engaging in "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape." Yet, to date, neither you nor the UUA Board of Trustees has responded in responsibility to my legitimate demands. My emails about this matter have not even been officially acknowledged as being received by the Board, let alone responded to in writing in a manner that models the 2nd, 4th and 6th principles of Unitarian Universalism.

This important matter MUST be responsibly and properly handled during the upcoming January 2014 UUA Board of Trustees meeting in San Diego two weeks from now, IF the UUA wants to move toward de-escalation and resolution of this ludicrously prolonged conflict, rather than yet another significant escalation and possibly considerable prolongation of this conflict. For that reason I am urging you to agree to have the second telephone conversation that you had previously indicated that we would have in late September or early October of 2013. I need to know where you stand, and I need you to indicate to me where the Board of Trustees currently stands, in order to know how to proceed in this matter in a way that leads towards the UUA Board finally getting around to "doing the right thing" during the January 2014 Board of Trustees meeting, rather than once again FAILing (or indeed obstinately refusing. . .) to practice what Unitarian Universalism preaches in its Seven Principles, other claimed ideals, and various other claimed policies and procedures of UUism. Please indicate a day and a time that would be convenient for you to speak with me for up to an hour within the next several days and I will do my best to make myself available to talk with you. If the time that you suggest is unworkable for me I will work out a mutually agreeable time with you.

I will add that there is nothing preventing you from delegating some responsibilities to a sub-committee of the Board in moving towards resolution of this conflict, either an existing sub-committee such as the Board of Review etc. or a newly created Ad Hoc committee, but I wish to speak with you personally at least one more time within the next week in order to try to move this conflict towards a genuinely just and equitable resolution, rather than yet another almost inevitable escalation and prolongation of the conflict if the UUA Board continues to ignore or dismiss my VERY serious concerns about the Peter Morales administrations' immoral, unethical, and borderline criminal* false accusation of the archaic criminal act of blasphemous libel against me in shameful legal bullying that seeks to cover-up and hide online testimony about egregious and criminal UUA clergy sexual misconduct, as well as the criminal sexual misconduct of a UU lay person, specifically "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape".


Sincerely,

Robin Edgar


* Making a false report to police or prosecutors is considered a public mischief up here in Soviet Canuckistan if not down there in The Land Of The Free. . .

On that note, the former President of the Unitarian Church of Montreal Margo Ellis, and-or other complicit Montreal Unitarians, may well be facing public mischief charges arising out of what has every appearance of being a false complaint called in to the Montreal police force last Sunday in the wake of Margo Ellis assaulting Yours Truly with a foolish body check, as I have brought to your attention in a previous email to you and the UUA Board of Trustees.

The UUA Board Of Trustees And Former Unitarian Church Montreal Board President Margo Ellis - What's The Connection?

How about this email aka electronic communication that I just sent to UUA Moderator Jim Key, the "new" UUA Board of Trustees which is looking a lot like the "old" UUA Board of Trustees to Yours Truly, and CC'd to Rev. Gail Seavey and one other member of UU Safety Net minutes ago?

Former Unitarian Church Of Montreal President Margo Gillis. . .

(Please forgive me for accidentally writing Margo Gillis when I meant to write Margo Ellis)

Me

To jkey@uua.org board@uua.org gseavey@firstuunashville.org and 1 More...

Ushers in the New Year in style. . .

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/2014/01/margo-ellis-unitarian-church-montreal.html

And to think that this latest cynical attempt to pervert justice by falsely accusing me of crimes that I have not committed might never have happened if the UUA Board of Trustees had responded in *responsibility* to my numerous previous communications to the Board about the UUA's shameful perversions of justice.

It looks like 2014 is off to an even worse start for Unitarian Universalists in general and the UUA in particular than I had anticipated might be the case.

I suggest that UUA Trustees respond in genuine *responsibility* to the Spirit and the letter the previous, and indeed the most recent, electronic communications that I sent to you during the January 2014 Board meeting, unless you would prefer that this conflict escalates to levels as yet unseen during the first quarter of 2014.

Sincerely,

Robin Edgar

Can The Unitarian Universalist Association aka UUA Present Some Credible Evidence That I Actually Have Posted Some Genuinely "*Unfounded* And Vicious Allegations To The Effect That Ministers Of The Association Engage In Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape"?

Just asking. . .

19 months ago today Maitre Marc-André Coulombe sent me the second and, to date, final legal letter accusing me of various crimes against hU*Umanity. The main text of Maitre Coulombe' s second arrogant and aggressive legal letter addressed to me is reproduced in this blog post which reproduces an email that I sent to Maitre Coulombe on the 7th monthiversary of his email, a year ago today on
Saturn's Day aka Saturday January 5, 2013.


Here is how I responded to Maitre Coulombe's email the day after I received it.

i.e. the 6th of June 2012

To   Marc-André Coulombe

Re: A Few More Questions Re: Unitarian Universalist Association and al. vs. Yourself

Without Prejudice

Dear Maitre Coulombe,  

I do not appreciate it very much when someone suggests that I am lying when I am in fact telling the Truth. You and/or your primary client the Unitarian Universalist Association have now suggested that I am telling lies on more than one occasion. The contents of my previous email to copied below you were entirely truthful. I cannot locate any photograph of a female Unitarian Universalist minister to which I have superimposed the word "bitch" as you and your client alleged in your first letter to me. I am not saying that such a photograph does not exist but I genuinely cannot locate where it is published on The Emerson Avenger blog if it does in fact exist. If you want me to remove that particular alleged photograph you are going to have to tell me exactly where it is so I can view the blog post and then decide how to govern myself.

Likewise, I honestly cannot find any The Emerson Avenger blog posts which actually contain "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" as you have alleged on behalf of your client the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations. I am aware of having made a few allegations to the effect that the subsequently defellowshipped Unitarian Universalist minister Rev. Mack Mitchell was convicted of the forcible rape of some teenage Tibetan refugees that he had lured away from their home in India with promises of "a better life in America" but, in that Rev. Mack Mitchell was actually charged with rape, found guilty of rape, and spent several years in jail for what could be described as his *vicious* rape of vulnerable teenage Tibetan refugees those allegations about a Unitarian Universalist minister committing the despicable crime of rape are hardly "unfounded" allegations are they? Need I point out to you that your client, the Unitarian Universalist Association Of Congregations, is in a position to know perfectly well that my allegations regarding Rev. Mack Mitchell are in fact very well founded allegations as opposed to allegedly "unfounded" allegations? I really am not aware of having posted any genuinely "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" to The Emerson Avenger blog. If the UUA (the "Association") truly and genuinely believes that I have posted some "unfounded" allegations about Unitarian Universalist ministers committing the crime of rape the UUA and you will need to clearly identify the TEA blog posts that these allegations are posted in, along with the phrases, sentences, or paragraphs that the Unitarian Universalist Association is alleging to be *unfounded* so that I may review them and decide whether or not they actually are unfounded and warrant removal from The Emerson Avenger blog.

Likewise I was quiet unable to find a single The Emerson Avenger blog post in which I make "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia. . ." In fact, as far as the despicable crime of pedophilia goes, I was unable to find *any* allegations whatsoever to the effect that "ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia", which of course does not mean to say that *some* ministers of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations have in fact engaged in the despicable crime of pedophilia and that I am ready, willing, and able to write some future The Emerson Avenger blog posts containing very well founded allegations about one or more ministers of the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations who have in fact committed the despicable crime of pedophilia in the past. In fact I had been meaning to do just that for some months now, but had neglected to get around to doing it. Thank you so much for reminding me that I must get around to blogging about some very well founded allegations to the effect that certain Unitarian Universalist ministers have engaged in the despicable crime of pedophilia. 

The only The Emerson Avenger blog post that I was able to find which even mentioned the despicable crime of pedophilia was a blog post about a parishioner of one of your female clients the Reverend Doctor Victoria Weinstein who blogs all kinds of insulting, slanderous and abusive material to the internet under the pseudonym Peacebang and who I have reasonable grounds to believe *may* even be a member of the anonymous "collective authorship" of the Robin Edgar Sucks blog. I have no qualms whatsoever about acknowledging that I described Rev. Weinstein's parishioner Richard Buell as a "pedophile rapist" but, in that Richard Buell was actually charged and convicted of the despicable crime of forcible rape of prepubescent girls who were around 10-12 years old at the time that these rapes were committed, these again are hardly "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia", especially in light of the fact that, to the very best of my knowledge Richard Buell is not and never was an ordained Unitarian Universalist minister. So, once again, if the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations aka the UUA truly and genuinely believes that I have posted some "unfounded" allegations about Unitarian Universalist ministers committing the despicable crime of pedophilia the UUA and you will need to clearly identify which The Enerson Avenger blog posts these allegations are allegedly posted in, along with the phrases, sentences, or paragraphs that the Unitarian Universalist Association is alleging to be *unfounded* so that I may review them and decide whether or not they actually are unfounded and warrant removal from The Emerson Avenger blog.

Unless you and your client the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) can present some credible evidence that I actually have posted some genuinely "*unfounded* and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" to The Emerson Avenger blog I will claim innocence of the archaic, "obsolete", if not "despicable" crime of blasphemous libel. Not that I would necessarily be guilty of blasphemous libel even if I was guilty of posting "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" in any case. . .
