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. . .

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 Unitarian Universalist Association's Official Membership Statistics For 2016 Reveal Continued Across-The-Board Decline Of The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™

It seems the Unitarian Universalist Association has quietly updated its official membership statistics for 2016 and, as I expected, those brand-spanking new UUA membership statistics reveal ongoing decline in all categories. . .

The Unitarian Universalist Association ( formerly known as the Unitarian Universalist Association of Congregations. . .) officially claims to have 1,038 UUA congregations in 2016. This is 5 congregations fewer than the 1,043 congregations the UUA claimed to have in 2015, and the lowest number of UUA congregations since the 1997-98 church year in which the UUA claimed to have 1,033 congregations.

The Unitarian Universalist Association officially claims to have 154,965 adult members in 2016. This is 1,655 fewer adult Unitarian Universalists aka U*Us than the 156,620 adult members that the UUA claimed to have in 2015, and the lowest number of card-carrying adult members in "The U*U Movement" since the 1999-2000 church year in which The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion claimed to have 154,459 adult members.

The Unitarian Universalist Association officially claims to have 44,885 RE Enrollments in 2016. This is 2,738 fewer children and youth attending U*U "Sunday School" than the 47,623 RE Enrollments that the UUA claimed to have in 2015, and the lowest number of children and youth enrolled in U*U "Sunday School" since 1987 in which The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion claimed to have 42,058 RE Enrollments.

The Unitarian Universalist Association officially claims to have a total of 199,850 members in The U*U Movement in 2016 when one combines adult membership with RE Enrollments. This is 4,393 fewer than the combined total of 204,243 adult and child U*Us that the UUA claimed to have in 2015, and the lowest number of U*Us in "The U*U Movement" since the 1992-1993 church year in which The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion claimed to have a total of 193,953 members.

If I remember correctly, and I am pretty sure that I do remember correctly. . . Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales was elected as the first Latino president of the UUA in June of 2009 on a platform promising growth of Unitarian Universalism aka The U*U Movement aka The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion. The UUA's 2016 official membership statistics reveal that The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™ officially has 10 fewer UUA congregations in 2016 than it claimed to have in 2009, and it is probable that the actual number of UUA congregations is significantly lower than the claimed number of 1,038 congregations in that that claimed number includes no less than 51 U*U congregations that have not certified their membership in the UUA in 2016. A more realistic number of remaining bricks & mortar UUA congregations might be 988, which is the number of UUA congregations that certified their membership in the UUA in 2016.

The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™ officially has almost ten thousand aka 10,000 aka 10k fewer adult members in The U*U Movement in 2016 than it claimed to have in 2009 when Rev. Peter Morales was elected on his platform promising growth of The U*U Movement.

The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™ officially has almost twelve thousand aka 12,000 aka 12k fewer children and youth enrolled in Religious Education classes offered in UUA congregations in 2016 than it claimed to have in 2009.


All told, (and Truth be told the UUA may not actually be telling the Truth about actual membership in UUA congregations in its publicly released official membership statistics), the
The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™ officially has around 21,500 fewer adult members and children and youth enrolled in Religious Education classes offered in UUA congregations in 2016 than it claimed to have in 2009.

Forgive me for asking President Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales, but where's the Big Fat U*U Growth that you promised to Unitarian Universalists in the UUA presidential election platform that you were elected on almost 8 years ago now?




Why does this old Status Quo song come to mind here?

Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein, The Unitarian Univeralist Church Of Greater Lynn's Parish Minister, Viciously Kicks UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales & UUA Moderator Jim "See No Evil" Key In Their Big Fat U*U Balls

With a little bit of help from Winston Churchill. . .

In this plagU*Urized version of a sentence* from the Unitarian Univeralist Church of Greater Lynn parish minister's Peacebang blog post entitled 'What Leads U*Us: An Election Sermon' -

"Winston Churchill once defined leadership as "going from FAILure to FAILure without losing enthusiasm," and we must assume that those U*Us who make the expensive and exhausting run for President and Moderator of the UUA do it because they love FAILure and have a calling for it."




* It depends upon what the meaning of the word "sentence" is. . .

Rev. Diane Olenick Rollert "Junitarian" Minister Of The Unitarian Church Montreal Viciously Kicks UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales And Other Evil & Graceless U*Us In Their Big Fat U*U Balls. . .

In this "annotated" paragraph from the Unitarian Church Montreal's "less than perfect" U*U minister Rev. Diane Olenick Rollert's Thanksgiving Sunday sermon entitled:

"Chesed", Forgiveness, Grace and Gratitude

"Creation is messy, which means that it’s in our nature to make mistakes, to miss the mark or, some would say, to sin. There are times that we do this intentionally. We humans are capable of being deliberately evil. “Evil” is not a favourite word among Unitarian Universalists, but I think we see things that humans do to the earth and to each other that we would find hard to label as anything but evil. We are also capable of doing wrong inadvertently, of being thoughtless, and we can do wrong accidentally. Sometimes we think we’re doing something good that turns out to have negative consequences. If we’re honest with ourselves, we know we’ve missed the mark many times. We’ve all done plenty of things that require our apologies and need forgiveness."

Famous Unitarian Thomas Paine Kicks *Certified* Risk Management Consultant James C. Key aka UUA Moderator Jim "See No Evil" Key In His Big Fat U*U Balls

With a little bit of help from former POTUS William Jefferson Clinton. . .

In this "annotated" Thomas Paine quotation:

"Infidelity does not consist in believing, or in disbelieving; it consists in professing to believe what he does not believe. It is impossible to calculate the moral mischief, if I may so express it, that mental* lying has produced in society. When a man has so far corrupted and prostituted the chastity of his mind, as to subscribe his professional belief to things he does not believe, he has prepared himself for the commission of every other crime."



* It depends upon what the meaning of the word mental is.

The UUA's We Are Unitarian Universalists Video And Fraudulent False Advertising - What's The Connection?

How about this "annotated" version of the transcript of the "We are Unitarian Universalists" aka "We Are U*Us" video produced by the UUA's Program and Strategy: Outreach Office?

Just click on the links to discover just how fraudulent it is. . .



We are Unitarian Universalists. We are people of many paths who are brave, curious, and compassionate thinkers and doers.

Every day, people are inundated with information, overwhelmed by demands, and pulled by a culture that seeks to divide us from the web of life. Unitarian Universalism reconnects, bringing people together with meaning and inspiration. We are a house without walls, a congregation without spiritual limits, and a movement that calls you to put more faith in yourself, your community, and your beliefs. We are a faith that honors your mind, your heart, your journey.  Simply put, we are a guided path towards a better you and a better world.

Grounded in more than two hundred years of thoughtful, spiritual communities, we are people of many generations, ethnicities, genders and sexualities, and spiritual backgrounds.  People engaged in making the world a better place. People focusing on what really matters – love, justice, integrity, and hope.

Unitarian Universalists have different beliefs, but shared values. We are Unitarian Universalists, and at the same time we may also be agnostic, Buddhist, Christian, Hindu, humanist, Jewish, Muslim, pagan, atheist, believers in God, and those who just let the great mystery be. The diversity of beliefs you’ll find in a Unitarian Universalist community is one of our strengths – we’re always learning how to see the world from a different perspective.

What unites us are our core principles that uphold seven real-world values:
Seven days a week, Unitarian Universalists live these principles by doing.  When we gather we worship, reflect and remind ourselves what matters most in life. Whatever our age, we learn to live with more wisdom, more awareness, more gratitude and more soul.

We show our values by showing up to answer the call for social justice. We have a track record of standing on the side of love for civil rights, LGBTQ equality, immigration reform, environmental sustainability, reproductive justice, racial justice, and more.

Find what it means to live your deepest values out loud. Join us on this extraordinary adventure of faith!

Montreal Unitarian Sue Montgomery's Facebook Account And Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape Committed By Certain Unitarian Universalist Ministers - What's The Connection?

How about this comment that I successfully posted in response to this post on the Facebook account of Montreal Unitarian U*U, "retired" Montreal Gazette "Justice Reporter", and #BeenRapedNEVERreported Twitter hashtag co-founder Sue Montgomery?

Imagine Montreal Unitarian U*U, and "retired" Montreal Gazette "Justice Reporter", Sue Montgomery refusing to report on the Unitarian Universalist Association's attempted misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying that sought to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers".

A Truly amazing story. . .

The Unitarian Universalist Association's Central East Region And UUA Misuse Of Blasphemy Law To Cover-Up "Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape" Committed By "Certain Unitarian Universalist Ministers" - What's The Connection?

How about this comment that I managed to successfully post in response to this post on the Facebook page of the Central East Region of the Unitarian Universalist Association?

May I suggest that U*Us use Twitter to have fresh, fast-paced faith and justice conversation with fellow U*U faith members about the Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales UUA administration's immoral, UNethical, borderline criminal, and quite frankly insane attempted misuse of Canada's archaic blasphemy law in UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying that is quite evidently intended to cover-up and deny "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers"?

To FAIL or refuse to do so constitutes the flaunting and betrayal of Unitarian Universalism's claimed principles and ideals, especially the 2nd & 4th principles of UUism's 7 principles, as well as the centuries old legacy and tradition of opposing blasphemy laws that Unitarians and Universalists held until Friday June 1st, 2012.

*Certified* Risk Management Consultant James C. Key aka "Lame Duck" UUA Moderator Jim Key Viciously Kicks Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales And Other Irrational Tribal U*Us In Their Big Fat U*U Balls!

In this plagU*Urized version of this quote from "Lame Duck" UUA Moderator Jim Key's Facebook page:

"Are U*Us tribal or do U*Us consider reasons,

facts, & analytics to affirm U*U decisions?

 

Can Unitarian Universalists be rational?"

David Rollert And Unitarian Universalist Cover Up Of Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape Committed By Certain Unitarian Universalist Ministers - What's The Connection?

How about this U*U Tube video which "captures" Montreal Unitarian U*U David Rollert, President and CEO at Floe design + technologies, and the husband of the Unitarian Church of Montreal's "less than perfect" minister Rev. Diane Olenick Rollert, knowingly and willfully participating in Unitarian Universalist cover-up of "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" most certainly committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" by erasing my chalk slogans that protest against Unitarian Universalist cover-up and denial of child sex abuse committed not only by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" such as Rev. Mack Wallace Mitchell and a certain Unitarian Universalist minister of a certain Indianapolis area U*U church, to say nothing of other U*U clergy pedophiles and*or rapists, but by certain Unitarian Universalist Religious Educators such as Steven Craig Bulleit, and certain U*U lay people such as Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein's First Parish Norwell parishioner Richard "Dick" Buell?

This is the chalk slogan that Montreal Unitarian U*U David Rollert was in the process of erasing when I confronted him. . .
