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.

UUA Membership Statistics For 2017 Maintain The Status Quo Of Unitarian Universalist Decline

As in down, down, deeper and down. . .

Almost five months after the February 1st, 2017, deadline for official certification with the Unitarian Universalist Association, the total number of certified UUA congregations for 2017, including those with no financial contribution whatsoever to the UUA, is currently 989.

The total number of not-certified congregations for 2017 is 47.

If these two figures are added together, as the UUA habitually does to artificially boost the number of congregations it claims to have for its official annual membership statistics. . . the total figure is 1036 UUA congregations, which is 2 congregations fewer than 2016. In reality however, many of the not-certified congregations have been not-certified for several years now, and thus should be removed from the UUA's official membership statistics. In real terms, the UUA actually has less than 1000 congregations in the so-called U*U World, and this has been the status quo for quite some time now. . .
