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.

Barbra Streisand And Unitarian Universalist Clergy Sex Abuse Cover-Up Legal Bullying - What's The Connection?

Can U*Us say "Streisand Effect"?

"Named after the American singer and actress Barbra Streisand, the Streisand Effect describes how efforts to suppress a juicy piece of online information can backfire and end up making things worse for the would-be censor."

The most recent example of the Streisand Effect making things worse for Montreal Unitarians, to say nothing of Unitarian Universalists more generally, is that Montreal Unitarian clergy abuse cover-up enabler Sue Montgomery's highly questionable criminal harassment accusation against me, which sought to suppress my ability to ask Montréal mayor Valérie Plante, and other Montreal politicians, legitimate questions about Côte-des-Neiges–Notre-Dame-de-Grâce borough mayor Sue Montgomery's complicity in Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts, and which also sought to suppress my ability to engage in peaceful public protest against Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse etc. outside the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal, has resulted in considerable media reports arising out of last Tuesday's trial for alleged breach of court conditions imposed on me thanks to Sue Montgomery's highly questionable decision to abusively misuse Canada's criminal harassment law in a malicious prosecution intended to suppress my Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms rights to freedom of opinion and freedom of expression.

A recent news report about last Tuesday's breach of conditions trial by Montreal Gazette crime reporter Paul Cherry headlined:

‘He is everywhere I go’: N.D.G. mayor testifies in harassment case

has not only been published in The Gazette, but has apparently been re-published in Vancouver B.C. by The Province.

Who knew I would virtually go all the way to the city of my birth, Vancouver, British Columbia, with Sue Montgomery and Barbara Streisand in tow?

Montreal Unitarian Clergy Abuse Cover-Up Enabler David Horan Is Viciously Kicked In His Big Fat U*U Balls By Famous Unitarian Mark Twain. . .

Which Unitarian Universalist Minister In Final Fellowship Propositioned Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang When He Was Still Married?

Just asking. . .

Based on this "confession" from Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein found in the  'A Word For The Creepers' blog post of her Peacebang's Beauty Tips For Misconducting Ministers blog.

"In twenty-two years of ministry I have briefly dated one colleague. When he first propositioned me he was in final fellowship, still married, and I was a seminarian. I’ve learned a lot since then. I did tell him off at the time but I also should have reported him to the Association. He was a charming, self-effacing and serial violator of professional boundaries."

It occurs to me *now* that being "a charming, self-effacing and serial violator of professional boundaries" sure beats being a "less than charming", narcissistic, serial violator of professional boundaries. . .

Rev. Mack Wallace Mitchell And Unitarian Universalist Sexual Slavery - What's The Connection?

Can U*Us say Phuni aka Phuntsock Meston?

I only just came across this article headlined 'Winchester shop puts focus on karma, crafts and connectivity' which was published in August 2015 today. I ran a Google search on - Mack Mitchell Tibetan - and it was in the search results. In this article we are told that Phuntsock Meston was only 14 years old when Rev. Mack Wallace Mitchell took her away from her family of Tibetan refugees in India to be his live-in sex slave. Most other news reports that I have read report that Phuntsock was 16 when this occurred. Either way, 14 or 16, Phuntsock Meston was a minor aka child when Rev. Mack Wallace Mitchell began raping her repeatedly over a time span measured in years. So how was it possible for corpse-cold Unitarian UUA Moderator Jim Key aka Risk Management Consultant James "See No Evil" Key to say:

"There were NO incidents of abuse of children or elders in my investigations."


in the "less than honest", and thus utterly worthless, UUA Board official apology to victims-survivors of Unitarian Universalist clergy sexual misconduct aka clergy sex abuse that Jim Key inappropriately sandwiched into the middle of his first Moderator's Report to a General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association aka UUA GA in 2014?

Not that there aren't other Unitarian Universalist ministers who have been charged, tried, and convicted of what the UUA's Canadian attorney describes as "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape". . .


Life was difficult. Everyone was looking for work, Meston said. And when an older sister returned to the settlement with news that she had met an American Unitarian minister who was helping local children escape poverty and receive an education in the U.S., he was welcomed.

“Nomadic people are all heart and soul,” Meston said. “They are very trusting. You don’t say what you don’t mean. They are trusting and kind and believe in the goodness in every human being.”
The minister “did a good job convincing my family that I was a smart little girl wasting herself in a refugee camp where school only went up to 10th grade,” Meston said. “He was sent to save us, this man of God. They were honored by his visit. If he said he saves little girls, they took him at his word.”

Meston was 14 when she was sent off to the United States with the minister, Mack W. Mitchell, who imprisoned her in his farmhouse in Northborough and sexually abused her for five years. During that time, she attended his church and went to high school.

Her mother died without ever knowing what had happened to her daughter.

When Mitchell brought home two more girls from her village, Meston, who by then had met her husband Daja, summoned the courage to testify against him. According to a 2005 article in the Metro West Daily News, Mitchell was convicted of two counts each of rape, unnatural rape, and indecent assault and battery in 1992 and sentenced to 10 to 20 years in state prison. Meston said he only served three years of the sentence, in part because she was the only one of the three willing to testify.
After the trial, Meston began attending classes at Brandeis University in Waltham, where she pursued a degree in women’s studies.

“Everything took off,” she said. “I got a vocabulary to talk about my experiences. I was a sponge. I loved it so much.”

She appeared on the Oprah Winfrey program in 2005 to speak on the topic of sexual slavery. It was important, she felt, to not be seen as a victim.

“I wanted to give voice for those still suffering, who don’t have time to do the work of healing,” she said. “To give empowerment to survivors and to highlight the issue of labor and sexual trafficking in the West.”

First Protest Against Unitarian Universalist Clergy Abuse And UUA Cover-Up And Denial Thereof Outside The Unitarian "Church" of Montreal In 2019

But almost certainly not the last. . .

I voluntarily suspended my peaceful public protest against Unitarian*Universalist clergy abuse, and Unitarian*Universalist cover-up and denial of U*U clergy abuse, which includes, but is by no means limited to, "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian*Universalist ministers", outside the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal in late July of 2018, because the leadership of the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal agreed to enter into mediated dialogue with me towards the ending of resolving our long standing "war of words". I made it clear that I was unilaterally suspending my protest for a minimum of two months as a goodwill gesture, in keeping with previous generous offers I had made to suspend my protest for a minimum of two months *if* the leadership of the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal agreed to enter into dialogue with me. Unfortunately, conflict resolution talks did not go very well in December 2018, and since then little or no progress has been made, indeed the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal made a variety of moves that I consider to be regressive, so I made it clear that I was resuming my protest in February if no progress was made in January, and here we are. . .

SPVM PDQ 11 And Unitarian Universalist Clergy Sex Abuse Cover-Up Efforts - What's The Connection?

How about the well-documented fact that SPVM police officers from Poste de Quartier 11 aka PDQ 11 in the Notre-Dame de Grace aka N.D.G. have repeatedly interfered in, and have on several occasions successfully suppressed, my ability to freely exercise my Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guaranteed right to engage in peaceful public protest against Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse of all kinds, including U*U clergy sexual abuse that includes child sex abuse committed by UUA clergy, outside the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal?

The following embedded U*UTube videos document my second peaceful public protest against SPVM police repression of my ability to protest against against Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse, and various other U*U injustices, abuses, and hypocrisy, outside the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal, which took place on Sunday February 17th, 2019.

SPVM PDQ 11 Protest Against SPVM Police Repression Of Charter Rights And Freedoms Press Releases Sent Saturday February 16 2019


Saturday February 16, 2019

Press Release:

Last Sunday February 10, 2019, I (Robin Edgar) protested against SPVM police repression of my Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guaranteed civil right to engage in peaceful public protest against Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse, and also Unitarian Universalist cover-up and denial of UU clergy abuse, outside the Unitarian Church of Montreal, as well as other SPVM police repression of my Charter guaranteed rights and freedoms, such as repressing my ability to speak out against CDN-NDG mayor Sue Montgomery's complicity in Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts.

Last Sunday's protest outside SPVM PDQ 11 was documented on video, and the videos may be viewed here:

https://emersonavenger.blogspot.com/2019/02/spvm-pdq-11-police-repression-charter.html

I intend to protest outside SPVM PDQ 11, which is located at 6255 Somerled in N.D.G., tomorrow Sunday February 17, 2019, and on future dates which have yet to be determined.

Tomorrow's protest will begin in the early afternoon around 1pm and will last for approximately an hour, ending between 2pm or 3pm at the latest. One of the reasons that I am protesting outside SPVM PDQ 11 is because Montreal Unitarian clergy abuse cover-up enabler Sue Montgomery was able to place court conditions on me that make it difficult to protest against Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse etc. outside the Unitarian Church of Montreal without risking arrest for breach of court conditions that Sue was able to place me under as a result of having me charged with criminal harassment on very dubious grounds that are open to considerable question.

See the videos posted here for background information regarding CDN-NDG mayor Sue Montgomery's past and ongoing complicity in, and even active "hands on" participation in, Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse cover-up efforts which include, but are by no means limited to, SPVM police repression of my peaceful public protest outside the Unitarian Church of Montreal.

Please send a XXX News journalist and camera crew to report on this newsworthy protest against past and ongoing SPVM police repression of my Charter guaranteed right to engage in peaceful public protest, and SPVM repression of other Charter guaranteed civil civil rights such as freedom of opinion and freedom of expression, via abusive misuses of the Canadian Criminal Code, and related abuse of process. If for some reason you are unable to send a reporter and camera crew to the protest itself, please none-the-less report on this matter in the coming week.

Thank you,

Robin Edgar

Samedi 16 février 2019

Communiqué de presse:

Le dimanche 10 février 2019, Robin Edgar a protesté contre la répression policière exercée par le SPVM sur la Charte canadienne des droits et libertés que garantissait le droit civil de manifester pacifiquement contre les abus du clergé de l,église Unitarienne Universaliste, ainsi que protester contre le camouflage et le déni officiel de l'abus sexuelle des enfants par les "pasteurs" de l'église Unitarienne Universaliste, hors de l'église Unitarienne de Montréal, ainsi que la répression de mes droits et libertés garantis par la Charte Canadienne des Droits
par le SPVM, notamment en réprimant ma capacité à dénoncer la complicité de la mairesse de CDN-NDG, Sue Montgomery, dans la dissimulation de l'abus du clergé de l'église Unitarienne Universaliste.

La manifestation de dimanche dernier devant le SPVM PDQ 11 a été documentée sur vidéo, et les vidéos peuvent être visionnées ici:

https://emersonavenger.blogspot.com/2019/02/spvm-pdq-11-police-repression-charter.html

J'ai l'intention de manifester devant le SPVM PDQ 11, qui est situé au 6255 Somerled, dans NDG, demain dimanche le 17 février 2019, et aux dates futures qui restent à déterminer.

La manifestation de demain débutera au début de l'après-midi vers 13 heures et durera environ une heure, pour se terminer entre 14 heures et 15 heures au plus tard. Une des raisons pour lesquelles je proteste devant le PDQ 11 du SPVM est que Sue Montgomery, quin est complice de la dissimulation des abus du clergé de l'église Unitarienne Universaliste, a été en mesure de me mettre dans des conditions judiciaires qui rendent difficile de protester contre les abus du clergé Unitarienne Universalistes, sans risquer d'être arrêtée pour violation des conditions de la cour (bris de conditions), ce que Sue a pu imposer à la suite de ma mise en accusation pour harcèlement criminel pour des motifs très douteux et qui peuvent faire l'objet de nombreuses questions.

Voir les vidéos publiées ici pour des informations additionelles sur la complicité de la mairesse de CDN-NDG, Sue Montgomery, dans les efforts de dissimulation des abus contre le clergé de l'église Unitarienne Universaliste qui incluent, sans toute fois s'y limiter, la répression policière du SPVM de ma manifestation pacifique contre les abus du clergé
Unitarienne Universaliste devant l'église Unitarienne de Montréal.

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.com/2018/03/montreal-deputy-mayor-sue-montgomery.html

Veuillez envoyer un journaliste de XXX pour faire un reportage sur cette manifestation contre la répression policière du SPVM qui réprime mon droit garanti de manifester publiquement, et contre la répression par le SPVM d'autres droits civils garantis par la charte canadienne tels que la liberté d'opinion et la liberté d'expression, par le biais d'abus abusifs du Code criminel canadien. Si, pour une raison quelconque, vous ne parvenez pas à envoyer un journalist à la manifestation, veuillez tout de même faire un reportage concernant ce sujet la semaine prochaine.

Je vous remercie,

Robin Edgar

SPVM PDQ 11 Police Repression Of Canadian Charter Of Rights And Freedoms Guaranteed Civil Rights And Unitarian Universalist Clergy Sex Abuse Cover-Up - What's The Connection?

How about this 'No Justice No Peace Tutoyer La Police' Facebook group post about my peaceful public protest against SPVM police repression of my Canadian Charter of Rights And Freedoms guaranteed right to engage in peaceful public protest against Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse etc. outside SPVM PDQ 11 last Sunday just for starters?

Robin Edgar is feeling inspired.


My playlist of 4 U*UTube videos documenting my protest against SPVM police repression of my Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms guaranteed right to engage in peaceful public protest against Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse etc. outside SPVM PDQ 11 today. Incompetent and authoritarian SPVM cops have repeatedly tried to suppress my legitimate peaceful public protest against clergy abuse by arresting me on bogus criminal charges, threatening me with arrest and imprisonment, unjustly ticketing me, threatening me with tickets and fines, illegally seizing and destroying my picket signs, and engaging in various other kinds of police intimidation and police harassment for over 20 years now.

Unitarian Universalist Clergy Sex Abuse Cover-Up And Denial And The UUA's Church of the Larger Fellowship - What's The Connection?

How about this comment that I just posted in response to this post titled Ignored on The Church of the Larger Fellowship's Daily Compass blog?

I see facts about Unitarian Universalist clergy sex abuse, including sexual abuse of children by pedophile and hebophile UUA clergy, being not only ignored, but even being officially denied, in former UUA Moderator Jim Key's utterly worthless UUA Board apology to victims of Unitarian Universalist clergy sexual misconduct aka clergy sex abuse that he inappropriately sandwiched into the middle of his first Moderator's Report to a General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association on June 28, 2014.

I have a feeling that the above comment will never see the light of day on The Church of the Larger Fellowship's Daily Compass blog. . .

2019 Unitarian Universalist Association Membership Statistics Reveal That The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™ Is Tinier Than It Has Been In Two Decades

At least when it comes to the official UUA membership statistics for the number of certified UUA congregations, which currently stands at 965 UUA congregations, four days after the February 1st, 2019, deadline for Unitarian Universalist congregations to officially certify their membership in the Unitarian Universalist Association. As of today, 65 congregations are not-certified, but this number can decrease and the number of certified congregations can increase as congregations that missed the February 1st deadline certify their membership in the weeks and months come.

The fact remains however, that if one adds ALL 65 not-certified congregations to the 965 certified congregations, the maximum number of UUA congregations that The Tiny Declining Fringe Religion™ currently has is 1030. i.e. Five congregations fewer than the official UUA membership statistics for 2018 claimed the UUA had. I should add that it is quite UNrealistic, and even "less than honest", for the UUA to add the not-certified congregations to the certified congregations when calculating the total number of UUA congregations for each year, but that is exactly what it does, even though some of the not-certified congregations have been not-certified as UUA congregations for a good number of years. . .

This somewhat misleadingly headlined, but none-the-less quite recent, UU World magazine article about UUA membership statistics, from the Winter 2018 issue, provides further information about how overall membership in UUA congregations is pretty much stagnant, and has actually steadily declined for at least a decade. The worst decline is in Religious Education enrollments which fell from 55,441 RE enrollments in 2009 to 40,269 RE enrollments in 2018, a net loss of over 15,000 RE enrollments in less than a decade.

Groundhog Day 2019 And Unitarian Universalist Clergy Abuse Etc. Etc. - What's The Connection?

How about this "electronic communication" about the "shadow" of Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse, and various other U*U injustices and abuses, that I just sent to the leadership of the Unitarian Church of Montreal?


Groundhog Day February 2 2019

Dear Juan Vera and ALL other Montreal Unitarians,

I have a Groundhog Day tradition of looking for the shadow of Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse, and various other U*U injustices and abuses, on Groundhog Day. When I looked outside today I did not see much in the way of actual shadows cast by the sun, because the weather conditions were quite overcast. I did however see the long dark shadow cast by the Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse, and various other U*U injustices, abuses, and hypocrisies that I have been exposing to the light of day for almost a quarter century now.

I saw the shadow cast by the slandering of Creation Day as a "cult" by Rev. Ray Drennan, Frank Greene, and several other intolerant and abusive Montreal Unitarians, and the negligent, complicit, and indeed punitive manner in which both the Unitarian Church of Montreal, and the Unitarian Universalist Association, responded to my legitimate and quite serious clergy misconduct complaint arising out of Rev. Ray Drennan's verbal and psychological abuse aka "insulting and defamatory language".

I saw the shadow cast by Rev. Ray Drennan's intolerant and abusive dismissal of my revelatory religious experience as "your psychotic experience", and the fact that neither the Unitarian Church of Montreal, nor the Unitarian Universalist Association, did anything to remove the stigma of Rev. Drennan's insulting and defamatory language that unjustly, and I believe unjustifiably, characterized my revelatory religious experience as a severe mental illness that required "professional help" to be cured of.

I saw the shadow cast by Rev. Ray Drennan's arrogant dismissal of my monotheistic religious beliefs, as informed by my revelatory religious experience and considerable additional contemplation and research, as being nothing but "silliness and fantasy". This impertinent insult pales in comparison to the two previously mentioned defamatory slanders, but it closely parallels Rev. Ray Drennan's arrogant and insulting belittling of not only Pierre Elliott Trudeau's Roman Catholic state funeral, but ALL other religious rituals, as "meaningless" rituals in his ironically titled 'Wrong Message' Opinion Editorial that was published by The Montreal Gazette on October 9th of 2000. Rev. Ray Drennan's very public display of his anti-religious intolerance and bigotry resulted in "a ball park figure" of 50 letters to the editor being written and submitted to The Gazette, ALL of which condemned Rev. Drennan's intolerance and arrogance if I am to believe what The Gazette's Letters Editor told me at the time. In dismissing most religious rituals of the world's religions as "meaningless", Rev. Ray Drennan cast a shadow that did not reflect very well on the Unitarian Church of Montreal, or the larger Unitarian Universalist "religion". I remember people coming to the Unitarian Church of Montreal while I was protesting on the Sundays following Rev. Ray Drennan's 'Wrong Message' missive, who were quite angry, and sought to confront Rev. Ray Drennan about his anti-Catholic and more broadly anti-religious intolerance and bigotry. A few very angry people even seemed to want to physically assault Rev. Drennan. I remember one female member of the Unitarian Church of Montreal angrily telling me that Rev. Ray Drennan's intolerant and offensive attack on Pierre Elliott Trudeau's Roman Catholic state funeral was "the last straw", and that she had "had it" with the Unitarian Church of Montreal, and was leaving it. I don't remember ever seeing her again.

See: http://emersonavenger.blogspot.com/2006/06/how-rev-ray-drennans-intolerance.html

I saw the shadow of the Unitarian Church of Montreal's repressive, and even punitive, responses to my legitimate grievances, and my later peaceful public protest against U*U clergy abuse etc. outside the church, including the numerous SPVM police interventions in my protest based upon highly misleading, and even outright false, reports to the SPVM that even resulted in my arrest on bogus criminal charges on a few occasions. Some of that shadow cast by repressive SPVM interventions may even be seen on U*UTube.

See: https://emersonavenger.blogspot.com/search?q=SPVM+video

I saw the shadow of the Unitarian Universalist Association's shameful legacy of decades worth of negligent mishandling of literally hundreds, if not some thousands, of clergy sexual misconduct complaints.

See the Berry Street Essays of Rev. Deborah Pope-Lance and Rev. Gail Seavey here:

https://www.uuma.org/general/custom.asp?page=berrystreetessays

Oh wait. . .

You can't actually live up to, and put into actual practice, Unitarian Universalism's 4th Principle, which calls upon U*Us to engage in "a free and responsible search for truth and meaning", because both Rev. Deborah Pope-Lance, and Rev. Gail Seavey, have "withdrawn their permission" for the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association aka UUMA to publish their respective Berry Street Essays which were about Unitarian Universalist clergy sexual misconduct, and the negligent and complicit mishandling of clergy misconduct complaints by the Unitarian Universalist Association and its very aptly named Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee aka MFC.

How convenient for the UUA, UUMA, and MFC. . .

Try this "sanitized" UU World article instead:

https://www.uuworld.org/articles/reforms-aim-clergy-misconduct

I saw the shadow of the Unitarian Universalist Association's immoral, UNethical, borderline criminal, and if you don't mind me being moderately offensive, #BatShitCrazy abusive misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in UUA child sex abuse cover-up legal bullying that was quite evidently intended to intimidate Yours Truly into deleting aka "memory holing" The Emerson Avenger blog posts that told the readily verifiable Truth about "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers", not to mention certain UUA Religious Educators aka Sunday School teachers, and Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein's pedophile rapist parishioner Richard Buell. Here is just part of the shadow that was cast by the UUA's stunningly foolish decision to bring its centuries old tradition of opposing blasphemy laws to an ignominious end on Friday June 1st, of 2012.

Exhibit A for Artillery : http://emersonavenger.blogspot.com/2012/06/uua-unitarian-universalist-association.html

Exhibit B for Blasphemy : http://emersonavenger.blogspot.com/2014/02/blasphemy-law-blasphemous-libel-misuse.html

Exhibit C for See? : http://emersonavenger.blogspot.com/2013/01/stikeman-elliott-litigation-lawyer.html

Exhibit D for Doh! : http://emersonavenger.blogspot.com/2015/10/unitarian-universalists-pedophilia-rape.html

I could reveal even more of the Big Fat U*U Shadow cast by The U*U Movement's asinine blasphemous libel accusation against me, which has yet to be formally withdrawn and properly and publicly apologized for, but hopefully I have more than adequately made my point for now. . .

I saw quite a lot of Unitarian Universalist "shadow" today, as I usually do on Groundhog Day, and this is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg, because Montreal Unitarians and Unitarian Universalists more generally, are so chronically UNready, obstinately UNwilling, and apparently even pathologically UNable to genuinely, and reasonably consistently, honour and uphold the purported Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism and other claimed U*U ideals, or to respond in genuine responsibility to "the spirit that bloweth where it listeth", if I may reference Unitarian Universalist theologian James Luther Adams.

I called upon Montreal Unitarians, to say nothing of Unitarian Universalists more generally, to start walking towards the light on the winter solstice of 2018, but I see very little evidence of that actually happening. Most of the quite realistic and constructive recommendations that I have made towards the end of resolving this almost quarter century old conflict in a manner that lives up to Unitarian Universalist principles and ideals, to say nothing of claimed policies and procedures for dealing with historic clergy misconduct etc., appear to have been disregarded, ignored, and apparently even outright rejected. While there has been *some* apparent progress in dialogue moderated by Équipe Polarisation, that has not translated into any measurable progress in terms of concrete actions taken by the Unitarian Church of Montreal, to say nothing of actions taken by the Unitarian Universalist Association and-or the Canadian Unitarian Council. Au contraire, in my opinion, there has been measurable stagnation, and even regressive behaviour, on the part of the representatives of the Unitarian Church of Montreal, and by extension the Unitarian Church of Montreal as an institution. I will not repeat in this email the constructive recommendations for conflict resolution, Truth and Reconciliation, and Restorative Justice that I previously made that have yet to be responsibly acted upon in any measurable way. I will only say that, because very little measurable progress, in terms of concrete actions taken by the Unitarian Church of Montreal as an institution, has been made in the six month period that I voluntarily suspended my peaceful public protest outside the Unitarian Church of Montreal as a good will gesture, but also as an incentive for the leadership of the Unitarian Church of Montreal to make some real measurable progress towards conflict resolution, I am ending that voluntary suspension of my protest, and I will resume my peaceful public protest in February. It is my intention to protest against unresolved injustice and abuses, both local and international ones, at least twice in February. I remain open to continued dialogue, indeed I am more than a little bit disappointed by the failure, and possibly even refusal of Montreal Unitarians to schedule any meetings with Équipe Polarisation for February. I am also disappointed by the failure, and possible refusal, of church leaders to publish an official announcement in the Unitarian Church of Montreal's February 2019 newsletter about the year long conflict resolution process that the church agreed to enter into last fall.

I would advise church leadership to inform Montreal Unitarians that they should refrain from interfering in my peaceful public protest against Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse etc. in any way that might cause any escalation of this unresolved conflict, and additional embarrassment to the Unitarian Church of Montreal, and-or the larger Unitarian Universalist "religion" aka Unitarian Universalism. This includes interfering with my freestanding picket signs in any way, erasing my chalk slogans while I am protesting (not that there are likely to be any chalk protest slogans in February or March), physically assaulting me (including spitting at me), or making any highly misleading or outright false complaints to the SPVM police force in efforts to abusively misuse the SPVM and Canada's criminal justice system to suppress my ability to freely and fully exercise my Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms guaranteed civil rights and liberties. I remind Montreal Unitarians that making a false report to the police is a criminal act known as public mischief, and I will seek to prosecute any Montreal Unitarian who makes a provable false report to the police for the criminal act of public mischief. I will be informing SPVM PDQ 11 of my intention to resume my protest in February so that they are fully aware of the current situation.

I repeat that I remain open to continued dialogue and conflict resolution efforts that are in alignment with genuine "Truth and Reconciliation", and the "Restorative Justice For All" that the UUA long ago promised clergy misconduct victims, but never actually provided to them, and seems to have backed away from in recent years. I have always been open to dialogue and conflict resolution efforts, but Montreal Unitarians, and the UUA, have always rejected dialogue and proposed conflict resolution measures prior to the SPVM's Community Relations officers of PDQ 11 asking me if I was open to enter into a conflict resolution effort moderated by Équipe Polarisation last summer. I will add that I had previously asked PDQ 11 to have its Community Relations officers intervene in this conflict, but all previous requests for such intervention had been ignored or rejected by PDQ 11's "top brass". If I see some real measurable progress being made in February and March I may suspend my peaceful public protest again, but I feel obliged to inform Montreal Unitarians, and the general public, about the as yet unresolved issues at hand, which include, but are by no means limited to, the UUA's abusive misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in child sex abuse cover-up legal bullying, and the Unitarian Church of Montreal's foot-dragging in the year long "Truth and Reconciliation" process that it agreed to enter into last fall. I would highly advise scheduling at least two meetings per month with Équipe Polarisation in February, March, and April, but I feel that some additional peaceful public protest outside the Unitarian Church of Montreal, or indeed other locations, is necessary for multiple reasons. I would also highly advise responsibly implementing my previous recommendations for a viable and successful conflict resolution process. It is "less than wise" to fail or refuse to use the resources that the UUA, and an apparently co-opted and defunct UU Safety Net, ostensibly have available for responsibly dealing with "historic clergy" misconduct in this conflict resolution process. The UUA is a BIG part of this problem, and needs to become part of the solution ASAP.

Sincerely,

Robin Edgar
