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. . .

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. Jeff Liebmann of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Midland Somewhat Inadvertently Kicks Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang In Her Big Fat U*U Balls. . .

This is a parody version of this Midland Daily News blog post by Rev. Jeff Liebmann, minister of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Midland

Truth and Meaning: Peacebang's Fantasies

Sunday, May 31, 2015, 4:00pm aka TEA Time

Clergy misconduct challenges U*Us on multiple levels. On one hand, U*Us *pretend* to hold U*U ministers to a high standard, so when Peacebang fantasizes about anally impaling Republican senators on the Statue of Liberty's torch the Big Fat U*U Pain hurts U*Us even more than senator Bill Napoli. More important, however, our U*U "pastors" possess a power that we U*Us grant them. And when that power is abused, the corruption reflects not only on the individual U*U "pastor", but on the Unitarian Universalist "church" as well.

The "less than recent" revelations regarding Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang, now "pastor" of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Greater Lynn, and formerly "pastor" of First Parish Norwell Unitarian Universalist Church in Massachusetts, were enormously painful for South Dakota state senator Bill Napoli's U*U, to say nothing of that "religious community" known as The U*U Movement aka The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion. In her non-existent non-heartfelt non-letter not published last Saturday, U*U Pastor Peacebang did not discuss the "very real grief" caused by that Big Fat U*U News. We U*Us can ALL sympathize with the Big Fat U*U Struggle aka U*U Jihad facing First Parish Norwell as it seeks to rebuild the trust shattered by Peacebang's Big Fat U*U Fantasies. We certainly feel for senator Bill Napoli's wife and children. And, if we U*Us are people of faith, we can even find it in ourselves to forgive The Emerson Avenger himself for publicly criticizing Peacebang's Big Fat U*U Sins.


I am concerned, however, that in all this non-expression of mourning and contrition, the true victims of Peacebang's Big Fat U*U Sins remain damaged. I agree with UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales that "public shaming" of the UUA's Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe, to say nothing of Kay Montgomery and even President Morales himself, is not helpful to anyone in the whole wide U*U World. Unfortunately, the people Peacebang publicly shamed have received NO expressions of remorse, NO request for forgiveness. I agree that Peacebang's Big Fat U*U Failures were and still are relentlessly and repeatedly brought home to her by The Emerson Avenger. But the real victims of Peacebang's words and actions suffer relentless and repeated abuse and discrimination every day of their lives. No one has grieved over the glaring hypocrisy of a U*U "pastor" caught blogging about U*U clergy image on her Peacebang's Beauty Tips For Ministers website while sitting in judgment over, and even fantasizing about anally impaling and otherwise physically abusing, diverse people of inherent worth and dignity.

The UUA's Canadian attorney stated that The Emerson Avenger engaged in "Threatening and defamatory conduct amounting to sexual harassment against women Unitarian Universalist ministers." I find that a curious statement since his Big Fat U*U Client "pastor" Peacebang's "sodomy fantasy", that obscenely and Sadistically imagined South Dakota state senator Bill Napoli anally impaled on the Statue of Liberty's torch", can be readily understood to be "Threatening and defamatory conduct amounting to sexual harassment against a Republican state senator." Despite the fact that the Scriptures say absolutely nothing about anally impaling Republican senators on the Statue of Liberty's torch, kicking thieves in the teeth, or elbowing US Vice Presidents in their artificial teeth aka dentures, Peacebang's offensive diatribes remain unrevoked and unpunished. In his Big Fat U*U Zeal to heal his own Tiny Declining Fringe Religion aka U*U "religious community" and grant reconciliation to a Big Fat U*U Sinner guilty of fantasizing about terrible acts against people she does not even know, Rev. Dr. Peter Morales leaves Republican senators, thieves, and US Vice Presidents defenseless from future attacks from Peacebang's virtual pulpit, to say nothing of her elbows and boots. . . or from the Big Fat U*U Judgment the Scriptures repeatedly warn against.

Peacebang's non-existent apology to the U*U congregations that she has served should not be enough for the members in The U*U Movement. It certainly is not enough for Republican senators, thieves, US Vice Presidents and the butt hurt children of Peacebang's parishioners. Her non-existent apology is not enough because the fanatical hatred of politicians, even Democratic ones like Vice President Joe Biden, thieves, and other people of inherent worth and dignity continues, resulting in ongoing and lingering suffering.

And don't kid yourself U*Us. Public expressions like those made by Peacebang, Rev. Cynthia P. Cain and others ARE U*U "hate speech". They are NOT grounded in U*U love, but in a sanctimonious attitude of Big Fat U*U Clergy Privilege and ignorance. If even one person of inherent worth and dignity was led one step closer to homicide by Peacebang's public statements, then the blood lies on the hands of Rev. Bill Sinkford, former UUA Executive Vice President Kathleen "Kay" Montgomery, to say nothing of Rev. Beth Miller and Rev. Dr. Tracey Robinson-Harris. And unless other Big Fat U*U "Believers" reject those Big Fat U*U Statements as well, then their hands are also stained red, to say nothing of brown. . .

Big Fat U*U Bigotry is not a passive sin. It is as harmful as a knife, as insidious as any disease, and goes against the spirit of the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism and every other ideal proclaimed in U*U history.

The Rev. Jeff Liebmann is minister of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Midland and a contributing blogger at ourmidland.com. The opinions expressed are Rev. Jeff’s and are not intended to represent those of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Midland, its members, or the Midland Daily News.


The following are actual comments that I posted in response to Rev. Jeff Liebmann's blog post:

"And don't kid yourself. Public expressions like those made by Makela and others are hate speech. They are not grounded in Christ's love, but in a sanctimonious attitude of privilege and ignorance. "

I wonder if U*U minister Rev. Liebmann would dare to say the same thing about the public expressions of verbally abusive and even bigoted Unitarian Universalist clergy like Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang and Rev. Dr. Cynthia P. Cain? Are these public expressions "grounded in Christ's love", or are they "hate speech" grounded in "a sanctimonious attitude of privilege and ignorance"?

Actually Rev. Jeff Liebmann cannot do so, even if he was willing to do so, which he probably isn't. . . because Unitarian Universalist clergy are bound to a dubious "Code of Ethics" that prohibits them from publicly criticizing their fellow U*U "pastors", now matter how deserving of public criticism they may be.

The hypocrisy. The hypocrisy. . .

Here is how immoral & unethical Unitarian Universalist "moral leaders" at UUA HQ "bury their heads in the sand" (being polite here...) and try to cover-up and deny not only public expressions of U*U "pastors" that can be reasonably described as "hate speech", but even "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape." What does Rev. Jeff Liebmann have to say about this utterly shameful UUA legal bullying that seeks to conceal the worst forms of UU clergy sexual misconduct from the public?

Gowling Lafleur Henderson Defamation And Media Lawyer Mark Bantey Gets Put On The Emerson Avenger's Eat Your Words Diet. . .

In this comment that I just posted in response to a 7 year old Vancouver Sun article headlined 'Rafe Mair wins libel appeal in Supreme Court', . .

"[The ruling] finally, finally puts to rest this lingering notion that comment or opinion has to be fair or reasonable," said Mark Bantey, an expert in media law with Gowlings law firm in Montreal. "It gives constitutional protection to all opinions, no matter how outrageous, so long as they are based on the facts."

My opinions about "retired" Montreal Gazette "Justice Reporter" Sue Montgomery being complicit in Unitarian Universalist cover-up and denial of UU clergy sexual misconduct, including what Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe describes as "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", are most certainly based on readily verifiable facts and supported by plenty of evidence. So I find it curious and quite ironic that Gowlings defamation and media lawyer Mark Bantey, who uttered these words almost seven years ago, actually had the gall to falsely accuse me of libeling Sue Montgomery six months ago, when I can quite readily demonstrate that I told the Truth about not only her indirect complicity in Unitarian Universalist cover-up and denial of UU clergy sexual misconduct, but even her active involvement in Unitarian Universalist efforts to suppress my peaceful public protest against UU clergy sexual misconduct as well as non-sexual forms of UU clergy abuse.

Kathleen Kay Montgomery Joining Meadville Lombard Theological School's Board of Trustees And Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape - What's The Connection?

This somewhat altered and annotated version of the Meadville Lombard Theological School announcement that former UUA Executive Vice President Kathleen Kay Montgomery has joined MLTS's Board of Trustees should answer that question. . .


Veteran Unitarian Universalist Association official, Kathleen (Kay) Montgomery, joined the Board of Trustees of Meadville Lombard Theological School. Ms. Montgomery served the UUA as Executive Vice President from 1985-2013, working with Presidents William F. Schulz, John A Buehrens, William G.  Sinkford, and Peter Morales to cover-up and deny Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse of ALL kinds, up to and including "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" like Rev. Mack Wallace Mitchell to name but one. . . She also worked alongside UUA Moderators Natalie Gulbrandson, Denise Davidoff, Diane Olson, and Gini Courter towards the same Big Fat U*U Ends. . .

 “It was my great pleasure to work with Kay for 17 years at the UUA,” commented Meadville Lombard Theological School Board of Trustees Chair, Rev. Bill Sinkford who is one of the many UU ministers who was credibly accused of clergy sexual misconduct, but was never-the-less affirmed and promoted by the UUA and it's all too aptly named Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee. “I am thrilled to have yet another opportunity to work with Kay. Kay brings unparalleled experience and unquestioned commitment to UUA clergy abuse cover-up and denial, and a dubious wisdom that will tarnish Meadville Lombard Theological School' s public image in the coming years. She has a depth and breadth of caring about our ministers and their pedophilia and rape and other clergy abuse because she has witnessed and experienced every kind of clergy abuse our ministry can offer.”

Prior to her work with the Unitarian Universalist Association, Ms. Montgomery was active in at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta and in denominational activities: elected district president, inter-district president, and director of the Southeast UU Summer Institute. She was appointed to a variety of denominational committees, including the UUA's Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee which has been complicit in UU clergy misconduct of all kinds for as long as it has been in existence.

“We welcome Kay Montgomery’s extensive knowledge of Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse, and her wide acquaintance with abusive and*or complicit UU leaders, both UUA clergy and UU lay leaders, across America and internationally,” noted Meadville Lombard President, Rev. Dr. Lee C. Barker. “Kay is a denominational disaster and we feel dishonored to have her dubious wisdom in service to our school’s damaged future.”

Ms. Montgomery stated, “When I left work at the UUA after thirty years of clergy abuse cover-up and denial, I was quite clear that it was time for me to move away from leadership in the Association since I had been so immoral, unethical, and even Bat Shit Crazy as to hire Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe to falsely accuse The Emerson Avenger of the archaic criminal act of blasphemous libel on the unfounded pretext that TEA had allegedly made "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape". The expedient invitation to join the Meadville Lombard Board of Trustees soon after "retiring" as UUA Executive Vice President became an instant exception. I am thrilled to join the board and to throw my negative energies into an institution that is both immoral and "innovative", one that trains U*U ministers in the scary ways that have SO enriched the U*U World and my own life.”

Mack Wallace Mitchell, to say nothing of UUA "Religious Educators" aka U*U Sunday school teachers such as Steven Craig Bulleit. . .

Just saying. . .

Meadville Lombard Theological School And UUA Misuse Of Canadian Blasphemy Law To Cover-Up & Deny Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape Committed By Unitarian Universalist Ministers - What's The Connection?

How about this somewhat altered, and considerably "annotated", parody version of the public announcement of the Doctor of Divinity Degree that Meadville Lombard Theological School bestowed upon UUA President Rev. Peter Morales less than two weeks before he authorized Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc André Coulombe to falsely accuse me of the archaic criminal act of blasphemous libel in Bill Cosby style legal bullying that was, and still IS. . . quite evidently intended to cover-up and deny the readily verifiable fact that "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" are not only guilty of engaging in "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", but *some* of them, to say nothing of *some* UU Sunday school teachers aka UU Religious Educators, have even been charged, tried, and convicted of committing "such despicable crimes".

Peter S. Morales Doctor of Bullshittery Degree,

Honorous Causa Citation

Meadville Lombard Theological School

The office of the presidency of the Unitarian Universalist Association necessarily leads its holder to clergy abuse cover-up and denial. Without parallel in The U*U Movement, it is a Big Fat U*U Position that allows for the largest impact. Every president of the Unitarian Universalist Association knows that to be True before they are elected and after they retire from office. In between those times they are not quite so sure. . . But Meadville Lombard is certain of its Big Fat U*U Influence and is aware of its Big Fat U*U Demands . As our most prominent public voice the president has the awesome responsibility of embodying Unitarian Universalist values, especially as they relate to perversion of justice issues; and this as the various faith traditions are divided over what it means to take one’s religious perspective to the public square. As if *that* were not enough, the president of the Association is also presumed to lift up a vision for the future of our own Tiny Declining Fringe Religion; even in this age when integrity, over and against denominational insanity, is embraced by the majority.

President Peter S. Morales, Meadville Lombard honors you today because you are leading us U*Us toward a repelling vision for the U*U World and for Unitarian Universalism, a vision that squarely creates breaking changes on the American religious landscape and the need for Unitarian Universalism to advance into what we U*Us call the Post - Credibility Age. Your Big Fat U*U Vision, if I may be so bold as to paraphrase it, is to grow a Unitarian*Universalism that rejects ALL of the Unitarian*Universalist tradition of opposing blasphemy laws that has blossomed throughout North America and the larger U*U World for centuries, where U*Us of every kind of indifference are engaged with one another in ways that contribute to U*Uism's moral and ethical bankruptcy and guides U*Us to greater perversion of justice. You are pointing us U*Us to our Big Fat U*U Future with your hypocritical words and your dirty deeds, many known widely and *some* known only to the few.

Yes, *some* known only to the few.

Few know, for instance, Peter, that when the Rev. Dr. Kelly Murphy Mason and Rev. Dr. Vicki The Impaler called upon those UUA leaders who had a special expertise in covering up and hiding UU clergy abuse to assist them as they developed their new definition of sexual harassment that serves to cover-up and hide Rev. Dr. Kelly Murphy Mason's two-faced hypocrisy and Peacebang's Big Fat U*U Sodomy Fantasy, you were among those U*Us who volunteered to help them. You gave them *precious* hours of your UUA presidency because you knew that to do so would aim UUA's heavy artillery in the direction of U*Uism's clay feet.

Few know, for instance, Peter, that within our Association you have led an effort to cover-up and deny our Unitarian Universalist pedophiles' and rapists' sex crimes because you know that concealing public criticism our pedophiles and rapists and other abusive U*U clergy from the public is critical to preserving the perceived credibility and integrity of The U*U Movement aka the U*U World. And you know that Stikeman & Elliott's immoral, unethical, borderline criminal, and yes. . . Bat Shit Crazy legal action on behalf of "the Association" will be followed by prospective donors throughout our movement.

You are pointing us U*Us to our Big Fat U*U Future with your Big Fat U*U Words and your U*U dirty deeds, some known only to the few, butt many known widely.

Yes, many known widely. . .

You have caught wide notice, for instance, by taking a Taliban’s tone and a Fundamentalist Atheist’s zeal when it comes to issues such as "obsolete religions", UUA perversion of justice, UU rapist and pedophile inclusivity, and UUA miscarriage of justice. Always, you blind U*U minds to the lives of the suffering and the marginalized UU clergy misconduct victims, and hold out the UUA's Bad Faith response to UU clergy abuse so that we U*Us may follow you in making a worse future for U*Uism.

You have caught wide notice, for instance, by issuing the UUA's Pedophile Papers via Stikeman & Elliott, in which you have articulated the irony that if Unitarian Universalism is to have a future, we U*Us will need to focus our work on hiding the pedophiles and rapists of Unitarian Universalism rather than the rebrandingof Unitarian Universalism. Although you say that we will be hearing more about this subject in the coming weeks and months, the fact is, Peter, Unitarian Universalists throughout North American are already talking. As I visit our congregations I hear it. It is THE Big Fat U*U Topic and there is a Big Fat U*U Wave of disengagement aka willful ignorance and Big Fat U*U Psychological Denial about it. You have brought together your black heart and your dirty mind, your mean spirit and your Big Fat U*U Passion. In doing so, you have shifted the conversation among Unitarian Universalists and are preparing U*Us to meet our utterly shameful future.

President Peter Morales, because Meadville Lombard believes in your Big Fat U*U Vision for our future and is not the least bit ashamed by it, because we are grateful for your leadership to The U*U Movement and to the larger U*U World, because there are those among us U*Us who aspire to be as hypocritical as you are; it is a great privilege for me to be able to make this Big Fat U*U Declaration ,

“By authority vested in me by the Meadville/Lombard Board of Trustees, I confer upon you the degree of Doctor of Bullshittery, honoris causa .”

* Just 9 days before Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc André Coulombe chose the Big Fat U*U Fate of signing his name to the above arrogant and aggressive cease and desist demand letter that, amongst other highly questionable and even ludicrous accusations, falsely accused Yours Truly of the archaic criminal act of blasphemous libel on the false aka 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" which is reproduced below. . .

Rev. Sean Parker Dennison Of Tree of Life Unitarian Universalist Church Says Unitarian Universalist Misuse Of Blasphemy Law To Hide U*U Pedophilia And Rape Is Really Sad. . .

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

Take the word of Tree of Life Unitarian Universalist Church pastor Rev. Sean Parker Dennison himself, as quoted in this online article entitled 'Same-sex marriage in McHenry County: Some churches still wrestling with issue'

“When religion is used to hurt other people, that's really hard. That's really sad. It's like something else has replaced that central message of love.”

Reverend Theresa Novak And Unitarian Universalist Clergy Abuse Cover Up & Denial - What's The Connection?

How about this slightly modified and "annotated" version of Reverend Theresa Novak's poem entitled 'Dirty Laundry'?

U*Us can burn it in the fireplace

Bury it beneath a rock.

Dump it in the lake.

Throw it in the trash.

U*Us can leave it stinking up

A corner of your UUA boardroom

U*Us can take it to Red River
and beat it against the rocks.

If U*Us wear it in the rain
U*Us will get washed as well.

If U*Us hang it on the line
For the whole world to see
The sunlight will bake it clean.
