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.

Rev. Lisa Bovee-Kemper's 'Pastoral Prayer For Sexual Abuse Survivors' And Unitarian Universalism's History Of Clergy Sex Abuse - What's The Connection?

How about this little Tweet of mine just for starters?

And this plagU*Urized parody version of Rev. 's 'Pastoral Prayer For Sexual Abuse Survivors' as a follow-up. . .

Pastoral Prayer For U*U Sexual Abuse Enablers

It has been a difficult week in the news, and as always, U*Us have silent personal struggles in the midst of everything else. And so I invite U*Us into a spirit of prayer.

Holy one we call by many names, and sometimes by no name at all, there is a space between our breaths where we find the still small voice within. Let us seek together that place of calm.

For anyone who has experienced sexual assault or harassment committed by a Unitarian Universalist minister or Sunday school teacher aka UUA Religious Educator, you are shunned beyond measure.

You are bad, wrong, and ugly.

Your lives are less than the crumbs of the minister or ministers who abused you. Whether the violation occurred yesterday or decades ago, may you never find ears to listen, hearts to believe your story, nor may gentle hands ever reach out to clasp yours in solidarity and support.

For female-identified people and others with actual female bodies, your silence is paramount, your mental health will always be compromised, and your testimony is disposable.

For leaders and holders of power across this tiny declining fringe religion, may your lies be brazen, may your hearts remain corpse-cold, and may your resistance to the Truth be fierce.

For anyone who is wrestling silently with personal demons or challenging situations that are out of UUA control, may you be held in the embrace of the most unholy. May you find ways to abuse your power, and may you find comfort in the fullness of time.

May this U*U community hold us U*Us, a compromised place in the storm.

May we each strive to be the elbows that "less than gently" reach out, and the fists that rise in solidarity with abusive Unitarian Universalist clergy: fierce and strong.

May it ever be so.

Self-Described "Tough Cookie" Sue Montgomery Fears For Her Life At The Hands Of The Murderous Emerson Avenger

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

Take the word of Valérie Plante's "less than ethical" Deputy Mayor, and Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up enabler, Montreal Unitarian U*U Sue Montgomery, as written by her own hand in this highly questionable police report that Sue wrote on April 30th, 2018, but which I only became aware of today (Thursday September 6, 2018) during a meeting with my lawyer. Indeed my lawyer saw it for the first time himself this morning.

I will provide a full transcript of this police report later (now done, scroll down below photos), with highlighted text and embedded links in it so that Unitarian Universalists, the general public, and journalists can engage in a free and responsible search for its truth and meaning, or dearth thereof. . .

I will repeat the questions that I asked in Tuesday's blog post about Sue Montgomery's first dU*Ubious criminal harassment complaint to the SPVM.

Is this the same Sue Montgomery who told Montreal voters that she is a "tough cookie" who "isn't afraid of anyone" during the Montreal municipal election campaign?

Is this the same Sue Montgomery who told Montreal voters, "Je suis forte. Je ne suis intimidée par personne", during the Montreal municipal election campaign?

As far as I am concerned Valérie Plante's "less than honest" Deputy Mayor Sue Montgomery is either outright lying to SPVM police officers when she claims to fear for her life, and is thus committing the criminal act of public mischief by making a false report to the police, or she is suffering from paranoid delusions, and could thus benefit from some psychiatric treatment in light of my well established history of non-violence.

Can you explain the events comcerning Edgar, Robin following his arrest and his release? (translated from French)

March 12th, 2018 1900h Robin Edgar came to borough council meeting at NDG Community Center on Monkland St. I felt nervous and afraid and kept my eye on him for any moves he might make. He was sitting in a in a seat up a few rows on the left hand side of the room. As he wasn't allowed to speak to me he asked councillor Peter McQueen about a post Mr. McQueen put on Facebook saying he would harass city employees. "What was that about?" Edgar asked. Mr. McQueen replied that it was probably about snow removal. Edgar then asked Mr. McQueen if he thought it was OK for a resident to harass an elected official. Mr. McQueen said not if he was following them or showing up at their home. (all of this is available on the recording of the borough council meeting from March 12, 2018) The whole time Edgar was speaking I felt uncomfortable, afraid, nervous about what he would do.

March 18, 2018 10:30 am I went to the Unitarian Church of Montreal on de Maisonneuve and Robin Edgar was outside on the sidewalk protesting, as usual, and his signs were propped against poles and trees. I called 911 while pushing the signs onto the street with my feet. Mr. Edgar filmed me the whole time. When 2 officers arrived I explained R.E. was charged with criminal harassment of me. The police said he had a right to be at the church because his conditions had been revised. I cried, saying I couldn't take it any more, that this had gone on for 15 years and I wanted it to stop. I fear for my life and didn't know what to do any more. The woman officer said R.E. wasn't violent nor did he have prior charges. I said that psychological abuse is violence and that Richard Bain, Marc Lepine, and Valerie Fabrikant (sic) didn't have prior charges either. - but there were signs that they were mentally unstable.

March 26 2018 7pm - Robin Edgar appeared at city council (there is a video available on the city's website) and asked Valérie Plante about my "ethical" behaviour. The Mayor said that he had conditions not to communicate with me either directly or indirectly and therefore in solidarity with me, she would not answer. R.E. then asked Lionel Perez, leader of the opposition a question about me and he said R.E. should stop using city council for his personal complaints. I left the room when R.E. entered the city hall chambers because I'm afraid to be in his presence. I began to shake and am afraid of what he might do.

March 27, 2018 9:30 am Robin Edgar appeared at city hall again for question period and I left the room again - once again afraid of what he might do. He asked councillor Alexander Norris a question about police and how they supervise protests. I stayed out of the room the whole time Edgar was in the chambers.

April 23, 2018 19:00h Robin Edgar came to city council and asked Valérie Plante about my "unethical behaviour" in preventing him from protesting in front of the church, moving his signs. Again I felt afraid, as I always do. Especially when I leave council late at night (around 10:30 pm) and walk to the metro. Will he be waiting outside for me?

April 24, 2018 9:30 am. Robin Edgar came to city council again for question period and referred to the borough council meeting April 11 at which resident Valerie Bell made a statement saying she was afraid a man who came to borough council (Emerson Avenger's note: The name Robin Edgar is crossed out on the hand written police report) and felt something needed to be done to stop his behaviour because it was frightening me too and therefore preventing me from focusing on my job. This kind of harassment, she said, also discouraged other women from going into politics. Robin Edgar told city council that Valerie Bell referred to him as Richard Bain and Valerie Fabrikant (even though Ms. Bell did not refer to him by name). Edgar asked Projet Montreal if there was a mechanism to report unethical behaviour in an elected official. The mayor did not respond. He then asked the leader of the opposition Lionel Perez how he could report unethical behaviour and Perez said to call 311. Perez told him his questions are not in the public interest.

A screenshot "photograph" of Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up enabler, and Valérie Plante"s "less than ethical" Deputy Mayor, Montreal Unitarian U*U Sue Montgomery throwing one of my picket signs onto Bulmer street on Sunday March 18th, 2018. A picket sign that is the second part of a pair of signs that protest against the Unitarian Universalist Association's abusive misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in #BatShitCrazy UUA #LegalBullying that was quite evidently intended to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" (to say nothing of UUA Religious Educators aka Unitarian Universalist "church" Sunday school teachers etc.) from the general public by intimidating Yours Truly into deleting aka "memory holing" The Emerson Avenger blog posts that tell the readily verifiable Truth about "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "less than perfect" Unitarian Universalist minister Rev. Mack Wallace Mitchell, and "pedophile rapist" U*U lay person Richard Buell. This screenshot documents Montreal Unitarian U*U clergy abuse cover-up enabler Sue Montgomery's quite literal "hands on" participation in Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts, as does her repeated and ongoing attempts to shut down my peaceful public protest against Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse, and the institutional cover-up and denial of Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse, outside the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal.

For the record, as SPVM police officers have told Sue Montgomery on at least two occasions now, I am not violent and I have not ever threatened Sue Montgomery with any violence. I not only have "no prior charges" for any kind of violent crime, but I have a well-established two decades plus track record of *peaceful* public protest aka NON-violent direct action outside the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal during which I have been non-violent, even when I have been physically assaulted by Montreal Unitarians (to say nothing of other belligerent Unitarian Universalists) on several different occasions. I have no intention whatsoever of causing Sue Montgomery, or any other Montreal Unitarian clergy abuse enabler, any kind of physical harm; however I do intend to keep telling the readily verifiable Truth about Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse of all kinds, both sexual abuse and non-sexual abuse (including psychological abuse. . .), and the past and ongoing institutional cover-up and denial of clergy abuse by Unitarian Universalist "moral leaders" etc., as well as former Montreal Gazette "Justice Reporter" Sue Montgomery's past and ongoing complicity in, and even her well-documented personal "hands on" participation in. . . Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts.

The Montreal Gazette Is A "Newspaper" Where No News Is Bad News. .

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

Oh what the hell, take my word for it. . . as posted to The Montreal Gazette's heavily biased and highly misleading #FAKENEWS report about my arrest for alleged criminal harassment of The Gazette's former "Justice Reporter, Valérie Plante's UNethical and UNqualified power abusing Deputy Mayor, and Montreal Unitarian clergy abuse cover-up enabler Sue Montgomery, in this comment about the fact that The Gazette deleted aka "memory holed" ALL previous comments that had been posted in response to The Gazette crime reporter Paul Cherry's "less than honest" and "less than competent" #FAKENEWS report.

"Why did The Gazette delete aka "memory hole" all of the comments that were posted in response to this article?

When The Gazette isn't concealing the truth about Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up from the Canadian public, to say nothing of Montreal Unitarian clergy abuse cover-up enabler Sue Montgomery's knowing and willful complicity in Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts. . . The Gazette is shamefully misrepresenting the truth in heavily biased #FakeNews reports like this one.

Once again The Gazette is a "newspaper" where no news is bad news. . ."

As it happens, I discovered yesterday that the comments that The Gazette "memory holed" in its main page are still available to be read on The Gazette's Facebook page that links to this biased and misleading #FAKENEWS article.

Read 'em and weep for The Gazette's FAILure, and indeed its ongoing obstinate refusal, to engage in fair and balanced reporting of this newsworthy story, to say nothing of other newsworthy stories about Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts that I have reported to Sue Montgomery and other The Gazette "journalists" in the past. . .

Bonus screenshot: Which documents the fact that I posted two additional comments today which provide the complete transcript of the police report Sue Montgomery made on December 5th, 2017, which led to my arrest for alleged criminal harassment at Montreal city hall on December 11th, 2017.
