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. James Ishmael Ford And Unitarian Universalist Misuse Of Canada's Blasphemy Law To Cover-Up U*U Pedophilia And Rape - What's The Connection

How about this questioning comment that I just posted in response to Rev. James Ishmael Ford's Monkey Mind blog post entitled 'An Insatiable Inclination to the Truth: Recalling Thomas Aikenhead, the Last Person to Be Executed in Great Britain for the Crime of Blasphemy'?


So what are your thoughts about *your* religion, i.e. Unitarian Universalism, falsely accusing Yours Truly of the archaic criminal act of blasphemous libel in Bill Cosby style legal bullying that was*is obviously intended to intimidate me into "memory holing" The Emerson Avenger blog posts that tell the well-documented Truth about U*Us who are guilty of committing "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape."

Just asking. . .

Unfortunately, Rev. James Ishmael Ford has rather rather foolishly blocked me from posting comments to his Monkey Mind blog, so he will probably not see this comment unless I bring it to his attention by other means. Which I just may well do. . .

You asked for our thoughts on a canadian anti blasphemy law having been invoked by the UUA against you. I do not know much about the details but it strikes me as a wrong thing to do. Clearly it is a law that the UUA should ideologically oppose but instead leveraged it against you. I have been proud of the fact that the UUA was one of the only religious groups to sign on in support of the teacher who was fired in the Hosanna Tabor case to the U.S. Supreme court. In that stand they stood by their espoused commitments to justice and fairness where as many other churches took a stand with the school in order to safeguard the greater autonomy for religious organizations, freeing them from court authority should they fail to uphold what the law and their own policies generally require. I think the reliance on a law that involves the state making and enforcing claims of religious blasphemy is a problem and especially given our history as Unitarian Universalists.

Thanks for your comment AffirmAndPromote. I presume from your "handle" or pseudonym that you believe in the Seven Principles that Unitarian Universalists ostensibly affirm and promote. Needless to say I agree with your assessment that UUA leadership hiring Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe to falsely accuse me of the criminal act of blasphemous libel in legal bullying that is obviously intended to intimidate me into "memory holing" The Emerson Avenger blog posts about "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by U*Us is "a wrong thing to do."

"Clearly it is a law that the UUA should ideologically oppose but instead leveraged it against you."

Exactly. In fact, as recently as 2010, the UUA signed an amicus brief that opposed the use of blasphemy law in Pennsylvania on the grounds that ALL blasphemy laws are unconstitutional. Doh!

http://www.uua.org/sites/live-new.uua.org/files/documents/boardtrustees/100315_summary_uua_amicus_brief.pdf

This is what we call two-faced hypocrisy, to say the very least. . .

"I have been proud of the fact that the UUA was one of the only religious groups to sign on in support of the teacher who was fired in the Hosanna Tabor case to the U.S. Supreme court. In that stand they stood by their espoused commitments to justice and fairness where as many other churches took a stand with the school in order to safeguard the greater autonomy for religious organizations, freeing them from court authority should they fail to uphold what the law and their own policies generally require."

Fair enough, but the good things that UUA does does not absolve UUA leadership from accountability for the immoral, unethical, borderline line criminal, and quite frankly evil things UUA leadership do.

"I think the reliance on a law that involves the state making and enforcing claims of religious blasphemy is a problem and especially given our history as Unitarian Universalists."

Again you are correct. Unitarianism and Universalism have a long history of opposing blasphemy laws, largely because blasphemy laws were used against Unitarians and Universalists. The UUA's misuse of blasphemy law, especially in utterly shameful clergy abuse cover-up legal bullying that seeks to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by U*U sex offenders, is an outrageous betrayal of this Unitarian*Universalist religious heritage.

So what do you and other U*Us intend to do to ensure that UUA President Peter Morales and the other UUA leaders who bear responsibility for this betrayal of not only UUism's Seven Principles, but UUism's tradition of opposing blasphemy laws, face real accountability for their immoral, unethical, borderline criminal, and outrageously hypocritical misuse of Canada's blasphemy law to hide UUA clergy abuse?
