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: - 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: - 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.

Child Sex Abuse IS Happening In Unitarian Universalist Congregations

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

Take the word of newly elected UUA President Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, as quite clearly stated 16 minutes in to her recent U*UTube interview with Unitarian Universalist clergy sex abuse experts Rev. Deborah Pope-Lance and Rev. Gail Seavey as part of their "CONVERSATIONS (sic) in the spirit of Elizabeth Palmer Peabody and Margaret Fuller Ossily" series of U*UTube videos.

The exact words of UUA President Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray regarding child sex abuse happening in UUA congregations are:

"We want to think there's not child abuse in our congregations, and we want to think that our clergy certainly would not misconduct. So one of the most important things that comes first is saying "No" this is going to happen, this IS happening."

So, although Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray did not go into any specifics about the kind of child abuse that IS happening within UUA congregations, and she did not name any UUA ministers who have been charged, tried, and convicted of committing various forms of child sex abuse (indeed what the UUA's Canadian attorney, Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe, quite aptly describes as "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape") she none-the-less made it quite clear that child abuse IS happening in UUA congregations, and this statement was within the context of a larger discussion about clergy sexual misconduct committed by Unitarian Universalist ministers. This is a refreshing change from the immoral, UNethical, and utterly shameful institutional denial of child sex abuse committed by UUA ministers that recently resigned UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales, and even more recently resigned (to say nothing of recently deceased) UUA Moderator James "See No Evil" Key are quite evidently guilty of.

What Rev. Frederick-Gray says leading into those statements, and following them, is also quite revealing about U*U clergy misconduct matters, so I would invite U*Us, or anyone else who is concerned about Unitarian Universalist clergy misconduct issues. . . to watch the whole video from beginning to end.

I would also invite persons of inherent worth and dignity to watch the videos of the interviews of the two other candidates for UUA President who were not elected. i.e. Rev. Jeanne Pupke and Rev. Alison Miller since they both have some interesting, and quite valuable. things to say about U*U clergy misconduct issues that are worth being aware of.
