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.

Rev. Kelly Asprooth-Jackson Of First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church in Beverly Is Very Excited That Unitarian Universalist Church Membership Continues To Decline

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

Take the word of Rev. Kelly Asprooth-Jackson himself in The Salem News article headlined 'United in worship'. . .
 

“We’re very excited,” First Parish minister Kelly Asprooth-Jackson.

“It’s a big moment in the history of both congregations.”

That "big moment" is the merger of
First Parish Unitarian Universalist Church in Beverly with the First Universalist Society of Salem due to a continued decline in membership in FUSS. . .

The Salem News article goes on to report that:


First Universalist member Patti Welch, who served as co-chair of the merger committee, said the church began seriously looking for a partner two years ago as membership continued to decline. As of last count, the church had just 39 members.

“It just became very obvious that we were going to run out of money,” Welch said. “It was very difficult. It was very emotional.” Welch said First Universalist was hit by the same societal forces that are affecting many congregations. “Across the board people are very busy and they don’t have the time for a set Sunday service anymore, and they don’t want to put in the time,” she said. “People are using different tools other than religion to sustain their own spiritual health.”Here is my response to those words of Patti Welch -

Correction -

Across the board people are very wary of the Unitarian Universalist church and they don’t have the time of day for a set Sunday service at many Unitarian Universalist churches anymore, and they don’t want to put in the time with a VERY hypocritical "church" that misuses blasphemy law to cover-up and deny "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers". People are attending different churches other than those of The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™ aka The U*U Movement to sustain their own spiritual health.

Such a "big moment"..hilarious.
Robin, time will take care of UUism - a coming big moment so to speak-
so I think you can rest. It is not worth your effort to seek redemption
from such a radical group. Just put on a Cheshire grin.

I like to help time along. . . ;-)

I'm not seeking "redemption" from The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™ aka The U*U Movement.

I'm seeking justice & *equity*, not just for myself but for other "others" who have been unjustly maligned and otherwise abused by U*U assholes.
