The Unitarian Universalist Nightmares Blog And Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape - What's The Connection?
"Ministers report rampant dysfunction and abuse — years of struggle to establish basic boundaries with mentally ill or abusive members,"
I take note that Peacebang aka Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein speaks only of dysfunction, mental illness, and abuse on the part of U*U church members and lay leaders and NOT on the part of U*U clergy themselves, yet she is a one of the most verbally and psychologically abusive U*U ministers in terms of what she posts to the internet or says to people in private communications in emails (from what I hear from first hand sources). I have already posted links to a few examples of her insulting and defamatory attacks on people but that is just the tip of the iceberg. I am not trying to discredit what Peacebang says about U*U congregants and lay leaders, I have reason to believe that it is largely true, but she is deliberately omitting unprofessional, dysfunctional, and abusive behavior on the part of Unitarian Universalist ministers.
"angry push-back against attempts to do anti-racism work with the congregation,"
I have seen online evidence of this, at least in terms of what *some* U*U ministers claim in blog posts and Tweets etc.
"triangulating and betrayal between clergy or lay staff,"
I don't doubt it, but on the other hand, U*U clergy and lay staff typically fall all over themselves to support abusive U*U clergy and cover-up and deny U*U clergy misconduct of ALL kinds. The UUA's decades old FAILure, indeed apparent refusal, to hold abusive U*U clergy properly accountable for their abusive words and actions is a MAJOR part of The U*U Movement's ongoing dysfunction and decline.
"clergy sexual or emotional misconduct never properly dealt with by previous colleagues,"
I am not sure how "previous colleagues" are supposed to deal properly with
U*U clergy sexual misconduct, "emotional misconduct", or other non-sexual misconduct. That would seem to be the purview of the lay leadership of the affected UUA congregations and the UUA's ever so aptly named Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee. Sadly, past and ongoing negligence towards, and effective or even knowing and willful complicity in, U*U clergy misconduct by affected UUA congregations and the UUA's Department of Ministry has had a seriously negative impact on U*Uism and is a major contributing factor to the past and ongoing dysfunction of hundreds of Unitarian Universalist congregations.
"fiduciary bullying amounting to paychecks being withheld or salaries arbitrarily cut mid-year,"
Not to mention legal bullying engaged in by Peacebang and her immoral, unethical, and just plain foolish UUA enablers that amounts to bat shit crazy misuse of Canadian blasphemy law in Bill Cosby style legal bullying that seeks to cover-up and deny "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" to borrow two choice phrases of the UUA's Canadian attorney Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe. In addition to totally betraying Unitarian Universalism's religious heritage of opposing blasphemy laws, this UUA legal bullying has the unmitigated gall to accuse me of threatening and defamatory conduct amounting to sexual harassment of Peacebang for publicly criticizing her obscene and Sadistic "sodomy fantasy" imagining "South Dakota state senator Bill Napoli anally impaled on the Statue of Liberty's torch." The two arrogant and aggressive cease and desist demand letters that the Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales UUA administration hired Stikeman Elliott to have me served with are an utterly shameful example of the extreme immoral and unethical, to say nothing of borderline criminal. . . lengths that "less than perfect" UUA leadership will go to to cover-up and deny clergy misconduct.
"unreasonable and even conflicting expectations of ministers demanded by 100+ “bosses,” all of whom feel entitled to direct the minister’s priorities, and general chaos."
Peacebang goes on and on about the impossibly high standards that UUA clergy are held to by the UUA etc., but she is a perfect example of the incredibly, and indeed shamefully. . . low standards of conduct that the UUA actually holds U*U clergy to. It is truly pathetic how the UUA has repeatedly turned blind eyes and deaf ears to not only my own complaints about Peacebang's unbecoming and otherwise unprofessional conduct as a minister, but those of her own parishioners. Not only has the UUA done absolutely nothing to hold Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang even minimally accountable for her obviously unprofessional and verbally and psychologically abusive behavior, but it has engaged in immoral and unethical legal bullying that is obviously intended to cover-up and deny Peacebang's Big Fat U*U Sodomy Fantasy. Here is my most recent "electronic communication" to the UUA's Canadian attorney regarding that UUA legal bullying. I expect to send him another one today. . .
"Secret board meetings, ministers resigning mid-year or being forced out."
And then there are the "secret board meetings" (or secret "in camera" segments of otherwise public board meetings) at U*U "churches" and UUA HQ in which U*U clergy and U*U lay leaders conspire together to cover-up and hide U*U clergy abuse, including clergy sexual abuse of the worst kinds, specifically "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape."
