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.

The UUA Board Of Trustees Facebook Account And U*U Clergy Sexual Abuse Cover-Up And Denial - What's The Connection?

How about these brand-spanking new memes and text messages protesting against the UUA Board's past and ongoing knowing and willful complicity in UUA clergy abuse cover-up and denial that I was able to post to the UUA Board Of Trustees Facebook account, thanks to ALL UUA Trustees being all but totally oblivious to what is posted on their own Facebook account?

A Free And Responsible Search For Truth And Meaning And Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape - What's The Connection?

How about this Eat Your Words Diet comment that I just posted in response to the 'Sermon: Tending the Sacred Fire of Eros' post of U*U BDSM Dom Desmond Ravenstone's blog?


If U*Us believe in a free and *responsible* search for meaning and Truth, then let U*Us start to speak up for comprehensive education on U*U clergy sexual misconduct aka UUA clergy sexual abuse, not only for U*U children and youth who have been raped or otherwise molested and sexually abused by "less than perfect" U*U "pastors" & U*U Sunday School teachers aka U*U Religious Educators, but as part of a continuous and lifelong process of growth, as a way of furthering U*U understanding and appreciation of the myriad ways that UUA leaders cover-up and deny U*U clergy sexual abuse, including "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers", to say nothing of certain U*U Sunday school teachers aka UUA Religious Educators. . .

UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales And UUA Moderator Jim Key Are Really Nice Fellas. . .

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

Take the word of the Youth Observer to the UUA Board of Trustees Benji Janapol, a high school senior from the Woodinville Unitarian Universalist Church just north of Seattle, Washington, as posted to the 'Eyes on the Board – Youth Observer 2015' post of the Blue Boat blog of Youth and Young Adult Ministries.

Oh what the heck.

Take my word for it too. . .

As posted in this comment that I just submitted to the "moderated" aka censored Blue Boat blog -

(Note: While maybe not reflected by this mugshot, President Rev. Peter Morales, Moderator Jim Key and Treasurer Tim Brennan are really nice fellas.)

Yes UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales is SUCH a nice fella that he misuses blasphemy law in Bill Cosby style legal bullying that is intended to cover-up and deny “such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape” committed by “certain Unitarian Universalist ministers”.

And UUA Moderator Jim Key is SUCH a nice fella that he tells brazen bald faced lies about UU clergy misconduct, including effectively denying ANY children have ever been sexually abused (to say nothing of raped. . .) by Unitarian Universalist ministers in brazenly ASSerting that,

“There were NO incidents of abuse of children or elders in my investigations.”

in what was ostensibly a second UUA “official apology” to victims of UU clergy sexual misconduct in his first Moderator’s Report to a UUA GA.

The UUA Board Of Trustees' Facebook Page Gets An "Electronic Communication" From Yours Truly. . .

Minutes ago I noticed that I was not yet blocked on the UUA Board Of Trustees' Facebook page. So I decided to strike while the iron is hot as it were and, with minimal consideration for strategy and tactics, deposited the following message on the post that cites the famous phrase:

"All the best laid plans... (of Big Fat U*U Mice and men)"

with respect to some other FAILed plans of the UUA Board Of Trustees.

Robin Edgar "All the best laid plans..."?
I am still waiting for the Unitarian Universalist Association to sincerely and publicly apologize for any "inconvenience" *these* "best laid plans" of the Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales UUA administration's Canadian attorney, Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc André Coulombe, *may* have caused to me, any and ALL victims of "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers", and any other persons of inherent worth and dignity who may be directly or indirectly affected by the "best laid plans" of U*U "mice" and their Stikeman Elliott "man" in Montréal.

The Unitarian Universalist Association's "Democratic Practice" Is Nothing But A Meaningless Sham. . .




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

Take the word of UUA Trustee Rev. Sarah Stewart as posted to The Web in her Stereoscope blog post entitled:

'Transforming the UUA Commission on Appraisal'

Why appointed and not elected? Isn’t that undemocratic?

The bylaw amendment would create a Commission which was appointed by the Board rather than elected by the General Assembly. The members of all Board committees are appointed by the Board (some Ministerial Fellowship Committee members are also appointed by the UU Ministers Association). Some have wondered if having an appointed committee instead of an elected committee robs the Commission of some of its independence.

In our practice of democracy as an association, there is not much practical difference between appointment by the Board and election by the General Assembly. Since elections (with the exception of Moderator and President) are almost always uncontested, it is simply a question of which group of dedicated Unitarian Universalists recruits the leaders we elect or appoint. Many people help find members for our committees: the Nominating Committee, the Appointments Committee, and the UUA staff all make recommendations. Leaders are affirmed by uncontested vote at the GA or by vote of the elected trustees. Both election and appointment are legitimate, democratically-grounded ways to serve. In our current practice of uncontested elections, even GA elections do not represent a real choice between leaders for our movement. Appointed positions and elected positions are functionally equivalent.

end quote

So there you have it U*Us. In actual practice within the pseudo-democratic Unitarian Universalist Association, there is little or NO real difference between a UUA leader being appointment by the UUA Board of Trustees, or being ever so democratically "elected" by U*Us, since U*U "elections" are almost always uncontested. The only exception to this not so democratic "democratic practice" of The U*U Movement is the "election" of UUA Moderators and UUA Presidents by the few thousand UU delegates during any given UUA General Assembly, but let's not forget that the UUA has set up a system for pre-screening Presidential candidates if not candidates for the position of UUA Moderator. In fact, prior to the 2008 UUA Presidential election there was an effort by UUA insiders to ensure that the candidacy of Rev. Laurel Hallman would be uncontested by anyone. . .

MANY Unitarian Universalist Churches ARE Dysfunctional

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

Take the word of Universalist "Christian" U*U minister Rev. Scott Wells, as posted to The Inter-Connected Web of the internet in his brand spanking new 'Boy In The Bands' blog post entitled -

'A ministerial shortage is practically our tradition'

"And with SO many churches reputed to be “clergy killers” or otherwise dysfunctional, who can blame them?"

I can't help but notice that Rev. Scott Wells does not deign to consider the very real possibility that the very reason that SO many U*U "churches" ARE "reputed to be “clergy killers”* or otherwise dysfunctional" is because SO many U*U "churches" have been negatively affected by not only U*U clergy sexual misconduct, including but not limited to what the UUA's Canadian attorney describes as "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape". . . but also by various non-sexual forms of U*U clergy misconduct that the UUA and MFC aka Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee not only turn willfully blind eyes to, but even go to extreme lengths to cover-up and even officially deny?



* It depends upon what the meaning of the term "clergy killers" is. . .

Is Rev. Dr. Daniel Kanter Of The First Unitarian Church Of Dallas Texas A Liar?

It would appear that the Rev. Dr. Daniel Kanter of First Unitarian Church of Dallas is either badly misinformed about 21st century U*Uism, or he is just plain lying about U*Uism to the Dallas Morning News in this article entitled 'Texas Faith: Are there cracks in America’s Christian foundation?'

Rev. Dr. Kanter is quoted as saying -

Unitarian Universalism is also growing for one reason; we evolve. My faith does not hold tightly to the old ways but interacts with the times we live in. While we are doing that we are speaking to things that matter in people’s lives and standing up for relevant justice issues in our communities. “Nones” come to our doors every day because they want to make meaning of their lives. They aren’t met with answers that were given thousands of years ago. They are met with answers grounded in our 500-year history but alive with the times. They are also welcomed for who they are not who we might want them to be. The churches that are in decline have failed to remain relevant and adapt. They have also stood against trends in society that want inclusion as a higher value as they support discriminatory practices against LGBT clergy and members, for example. I am proud of my faith that stands in the mainstream of support for genuine inclusion and justice for all. Only these approaches will save the church.

Here is the commented that I submitted in response to Rev. Dr. Kanter's rather questionable claims about the "tiny, declining, fringe religion" known as The U*U Movement -

The Rev. Dr. Daniel Kanter of First Unitarian Church of Dallas is either totally clueless about UUism, or he is outright lying to The Dallas Morning News. . .

For starters Unitarian Universalism is NOT growing at all. Membership in UUA congregations has been stagnant for decades, and is now in obvious decline.



"My faith does not hold tightly to the old ways but interacts with the times we live in."

Which explains why immoral and unethical UUA leadership is holding tightly to the ludicrous "blasphemous libel" accusation that the Rev. Dr. Peter Morales UUA administration hired Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors to bring against me in June 2012. Oh the joys of being falsely accused of blasphemy by Atheist Unitarians LOL!

See: http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/2014/02/blasphemy-law-blasphemous-libel-misuse.html

"While we are doing that we are speaking to things that matter in people’s lives and standing up for relevant justice issues in our communities."

Right. . .

Tell us another funny story Rev. Dr. Kanter.

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/2013/01/stikeman-elliott-litigation-lawyer.html

: “Nones” come to our doors every day because they want to make meaning of their lives. They aren’t met with answers that were given thousands of years ago. They are met with answers grounded in our 500-year history but alive with the times. They are also welcomed for who they are not who we might want them to be. The churches that are in decline have failed to remain relevant and adapt.

LOL! UU churches are in decline across the USA. Maybe it's because UUism has failed to remain relevant and adapt. Why is UUA membeship declining if “Nones” come to UU "church" doors every day?

Rev. Anthony David Makar Senior Minister Of The Unitarian Universalist Congregation Of Atlanta And Unitarian Universalist Perversion Of Justice - What's The Connection?

How about this comment that I just submitted in response to the blog post entitled 'Building the World We Dream About' on Rev. Anthony David Makar's "moderated" aka censored 'Soul Seeds' blog? It will be interesting to see if Rev. Anthony David Makar dares to publish it and dares to publicly respond to it. . . Knowing what I know about the vast majority of Unitarian Universalist clergy I can be forgiven for expecting Rev. Anthony David Makar to just kept to his "lanes", eyes forward, mind focused on his private destinations and oblivious to the common good and how injustice to one never fails to be injustice to all…


“Anger towards a country in which I really can’t be sure why that man was stopped—whether it was for a truly legitimate reason or just because he was driving while black. Anger, too, because the rest of us just kept to our lanes, eyes forward, minds focused on our private destinations and oblivious to the common good and how injustice to one never fails to be injustice to all…”

So how do you feel about immoral and unethical UUA leaders like UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales, and “retired” UUA Executive *Vice* President Kathleen “Kay” Montgomery hiring Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe to falsely accuse me of the archaic criminal act of “blasphemous libel” for allegedly, and I DO say allegedly. . . making “unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape”? I mean talk about putting the perversion into perversion of justice. . .

Rev. Charles Eddis, Minister Emeritus Of The Unitarian Church of Montreal, Viciously Kicks The UUA's Canadian Attorney, Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors Litigation Lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe, In His Big Fat U*U Balls. . .

In this "annotated" quote from his out-dated if not completely obsolete Canadian Unitarian Council tract entitled 'What Unitarian And Universalists Believe'. . .

Truth
We are firmly committed to truth with a small "t," to the right - indeed the duty - of personal judgment. Freedom of belief is not a licence for religious anarchy or irresponsibility. It is not a franchise for wishful thinking. It is an opportunity for careful, hard, honest thought. Every person should develop his or her own capacity for personal judgment so that she or he may, in the words of the apostle Paul, "Prove all things; hold fast to that which is good." Nor is it all a private matter: we believe in sharing personal convictions and beliefs with each other in an atmosphere of openness and mutual respect.

Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors Litigation Lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe Gets Yet Another "Electronic Communication" On The Third Anniversary Of His Historic Blasphemous Libel Accusation

The following email was sent to Maitre Marc-André Coulombe minutes ago.





Without Prejudice

Monday June 1st, 2015

Dear Maitre Coulombe,

Today marks the third anniversary of you so foolishly hitting "send" on your "electronic communication" aka email dated Friday June 1st, 2012, 10:20:17 AM which asked me to please refer to the PDF file version of the ludicrous aka laughable cease and desist demand letter that I was only too happy to be served with by a Montréal bailiff several days later, and was subsequently only too happy to post to the interconnected and interdependent web of the internet in the following The Emerson Avenger blog post:

The Emerson Avenger: Maitre Marc-André Coulombe Of Stikeman Elliott LLP Barristers & Solicitors Is So Vicious He Hit Me With A Big Fat U*U Flower. . .


To date you have yet to properly identify exactly which The Emerson Avenger blog posts you consider to constitute "blasphemous libel" & "sexual harassment" etc. by responsibly providing me with their URLs and/or blog titles, as I requested you to do in my initial response to your "electronic communication", which I am hereby forwarding to you on the third anniversary of your chosen fate as it were.

That's not very helpful is it?

Indeed your past and ongoing refusal to properly identify ANY of The Emerson Avenger blog posts that you allege to constitute "blasphemous libel" & "sexual harassment" etc. etc. has made it next to impossible for me to "take down" aka "memory hole" any allegedly "offending" blog posts. In fact, so far. . . I have not deleted aka "memory holed" so much as a comma.

In any case, today is as good a day as any to thank you and your morally challenged U*U clients for bestowing upon me the truly unique honour & privilege of being able to bask in the untold glory of being falsely accused of the archaic if not obsolete crime of "blasphemous libel" in the 21st Century by immoral, unethical, and indeed "bat shit crazy" Atheist Unitarian Universalist "moral leaders" such as UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales, and "retired" UUA Executive *Vice* President Kathleen 'Kay Montgomery, to name but two of these sanctimonious aka "holier-than-thou" Atheist U*Us.

I dare say that it really has been boatloads of fun rocking the rather leaky U*U Ship Of Fools for three nautical years now in the wake of your rather poorly aimed "broadside"!

Allah prochaine,

Robin Edgar aka The Emerson Avenger


P. S. Please refer to the attached photos of my recent Victoria Day weekend peaceful public protest on Ottawa's Parliament Hill against the Unitarian Universalist Association's attempted misuse and abuse of Canada's archaic blasphemy law in Bill Cosby style legal bullying that quite evidently seeks to cover-up and deny the readily verifiable fact that "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers", to say nothing of certain U*U Sunday school teachers, have not only engaged in "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", but some of these U*U sex offenders,
such as Rev. Mack Wallace Mitchell and Steven Craig Bulleit to name but two of them, have even been charged with, tried for, and convicted of committing "such despicable crimes" and sentenced to jail terms for the despicable criminal acts of pedophilia and*or rape that they engaged in.

Without Prejudice

Dear Maitre Coulombe,

This email is to acknowledge receipt of the legal letter (mis en demeure?) that you sent me as an attachment to your initial email to me.

I only received this email earlier today and have not yet received the "hard copy" that you apparently sent to my brother's address via a bailiff.

It would be helpful if you clearly identified exactly which The Emerson Avenger blog posts you consider to constitute "blasphemous libel" & "sexual harassment" etc. by providing me with their URLs and/or blog titles. It is very unlikely that any TEA blog posts will be removed by next Monday (June 4, 2012) if you do not clearly identify which specific blog posts you demand the removal of. In light of the very short notice that you have provided I would ask for a reasonable deadline extension so that I may consult with my own legal advisers as to how best to proceed in this matter.

Sincerely,

Robin Edgar
