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.

Is Rev. Dr. Daniel Kanter Of The First Unitarian Church Of Dallas Texas A Liar?

It would appear that the Rev. Dr. Daniel Kanter of First Unitarian Church of Dallas is either badly misinformed about 21st century U*Uism, or he is just plain lying about U*Uism to the Dallas Morning News in this article entitled 'Texas Faith: Are there cracks in America’s Christian foundation?'

Rev. Dr. Kanter is quoted as saying -

Unitarian Universalism is also growing for one reason; we evolve. My faith does not hold tightly to the old ways but interacts with the times we live in. While we are doing that we are speaking to things that matter in people’s lives and standing up for relevant justice issues in our communities. “Nones” come to our doors every day because they want to make meaning of their lives. They aren’t met with answers that were given thousands of years ago. They are met with answers grounded in our 500-year history but alive with the times. They are also welcomed for who they are not who we might want them to be. The churches that are in decline have failed to remain relevant and adapt. They have also stood against trends in society that want inclusion as a higher value as they support discriminatory practices against LGBT clergy and members, for example. I am proud of my faith that stands in the mainstream of support for genuine inclusion and justice for all. Only these approaches will save the church.

Here is the commented that I submitted in response to Rev. Dr. Kanter's rather questionable claims about the "tiny, declining, fringe religion" known as The U*U Movement -

The Rev. Dr. Daniel Kanter of First Unitarian Church of Dallas is either totally clueless about UUism, or he is outright lying to The Dallas Morning News. . .

For starters Unitarian Universalism is NOT growing at all. Membership in UUA congregations has been stagnant for decades, and is now in obvious decline.



"My faith does not hold tightly to the old ways but interacts with the times we live in."

Which explains why immoral and unethical UUA leadership is holding tightly to the ludicrous "blasphemous libel" accusation that the Rev. Dr. Peter Morales UUA administration hired Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors to bring against me in June 2012. Oh the joys of being falsely accused of blasphemy by Atheist Unitarians LOL!

"While we are doing that we are speaking to things that matter in people’s lives and standing up for relevant justice issues in our communities."

Right. . .

Tell us another funny story Rev. Dr. Kanter.

LOL! UU churches are in decline across the USA. Maybe it's because UUism has failed to remain relevant and adapt. Why is UUA membeship declining if “Nones” come to UU "church" doors every day?
