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.

UUA Moderator Jim Key IS The Very Model Of A Modern White Supremacist Unitarian Universalist U*U!

But don't take *my* word for it U*Us, take the word of *Certified* Risk Management Consultant James "See No Evil" Key aka UUA Moderator Jim Key himself, as expressed in this letter he wrote three weeks ago on April 8th, 2017, as reproduced in this Facebook post of the Fourth Unitarian Society of Westchester New York:
 
"In recent years the term has come to refer to a culture, or a social narrative that places the needs, desires, stories, well-being, and the very lives of white people over and above those of people of color."

I guess that means that UUA Moderator Jim Key aka *Certified* Risk Management Consultant James "See No Evil" Key is the very model of a modern White Supremacist U*U in that, by brazenly lying* about UU clergy sexual abuse of children in the utterly worthless "official apology" for UU clergy sexual misconduct that he inappropriately inserted into his first Moderator's Report to a UUA GA in 2014, Jim Key created a deceitful aka mendacious aka perfidious "social narrative" that placed the needs, desires, stories, well-being, and the very lives of Rev. Mack Wallace Mitchell and other white Unitarian Universalists over and above those of the vulnerable teenage Tibetan refugees aka "people of color" that Rev. Mack Mitchell was charged, tried, and convicted of forcibly raping, and otherwise sexually abusing.

See : http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/.../uua-moderator-jim...

* i.e. by falsely aka UNtruthfully aka deceitfully asserting that "There were NO incidents of abuse of children or elders in my investigations.

Unitarian Universalist Brand Identity Guidelines And Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape Committed By Certain Unitarian Universalist Ministers - What's The Connection?

How about these plagU*Urized quotes from the UUA's Unitarian Universalist Brand Identity Guidelines pamphlet?

Just for starters. . .


Our best chance of breaking through the media noise with our message of healing and hope is to align our voices so that they resonate more and more deeply every day. Imagine a day when lengthy explanations and “elevator speeches” about Unitarian Universalism's immoral, UNethical, borderline criminal, and yes. . . #BatShitCrazy misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying aren’t necessary anymore because our faith is known far and wide as a force for good in the world.

Our look and feel should communicate our values. Values are the foundation of our brand identity.




Boldness - From striving for social justice to radically embracing different beliefs, U*Us have been a bold people of faith since the beginning.

Compassion – Our hearts call us to invest in the welfare of our fellow human beings, and our communities extend warmth and welcome no matter who you are, whom you love, or where you are on your journey.

Reverence - We unite in spirit through communities of meaning, grappling with the big questions and learning how to better live our values each day.

Is The First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond Open To Open Dialogue On The UUA's Misuse Of Blasphemy Law In Clergy Sex Abuse Cover-Up Legal Bullying?

Just asking. . .

In this post that I just posted to the
Facebook account of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond:
 
"Are you looking for a church that cherishes freedom and encourages open dialogue on all questions of faith, one in which it is okay to change your mind?"

Indeed I am.

Does the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond cherish freedom enough to demand an explanation from resigned UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales as to why his UUA administration decided to not only wantonly disregard and flagrantly violate most of Unitarian Universalism's Seven Principles, perhaps especially the 2nd, 4th & 6th principles of UUism, but also to outright betray the centuries old tradition of opposing blasphemy laws that Unitarians and Universalists proudly upheld until Friday June 1st of 2012, when the Rev. Morales led UUA's Canadian attorney fatefully sent me an email that falsely accused me of violating Canada's blasphemy law for allegedly making "unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" when I had done no such thing?

Does the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond encourage open dialogue* on ALL questions of faith, including the aforementioned one which has very serious implications regarding the integrity and credibility (or dearth thereof. . .) of not only the UUA, but Unitarian Universalism as a religious community in the 21st century?

Is the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond one UUA congregation which is ready, willing, and able to do what is necessary persuade the UUA that it is okay to change its mind about falsely accusing Yours Truly of the archaic criminal act of blasphemous libel in immoral, UNethical, and indeed borderline criminal clergy sex abuse cover-up and denial legal bullying, that was-is quite evidently intended to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" from the public, by formally withdrawing its false blasphemous libel accusation against me and properly and publicly apologizing for its UNprincipled and genuinely deplorable misuse of Canada's blasphemy law during the upcoming "Justice GA" in New Orleans?

Just asking. . .

Yours Truly,

Robin Edgar aka The Emerson Avenger

* i.e. Open dialogue right here on your Facebook account where members of the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Richmond, and other Unitarian Universalists concerned by this UUA incompetence and indeed corruption, may join in that open dialogue in this thread, or in a new public Facebook post created for that specific purpose on this Facebook account.

Unitarian Universalism's 8th Principle And Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape Committed By Certain Unitarian Universalist Ministers - What's The Connection?

How about this question that I just posed in response to this post about Black Lives Of Unitarian Universalism aka BLUU proposing the addition of an 8th principle for the UUA on the Unitarian Universalist History and Heritage Society's Facebook account?

Does "other oppressions in ourselves and our institutions" include the UUA's immoral, UNethical and indeed borderline criminal misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in clergy sex abuse cover-up legal (bullying) that was-is obviously intended to hide "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" from the American and Canadian public?

UUA Trustee Rev. Patrick McLaughlin And Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape Committed By Certain Unitarian Universalist Ministers - What's The Connection?

How about this question that I asked UUA Trustee Rev. Patrick McLaughlin in response to his Facebook comment about how UUA Board years are longer than dog years on UUA Trustee Christina Rivera's Facebook account?

Just for starters. . .


Robin Edgar So how many Board years aka dog years have *you* been totally complicit in the UUA's misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying Rev. Patrick McLaughlin?

UUA Trustees Christina Rivera And Tim Atkins And Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape Committed By Certain Unitarian Universalist Ministers - What's The Connection?

How about this comment that I just posted in response to this Facebook post that UUA Board Trustee Christina Rivera posted about how she and Tim Atkins have been UUA Trustees for the better part of two years?

Just for starters. . .


How many years have you, and Tim Atkins, and ALL other UUA Board Trustees been totally complicit in the Rev. Dr. Peter Morales led UUA's immoral, UNethical, borderline criminal, and quite frankly #BatShitCrazy attempted misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying that was-IS intended to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" from the public Christina?

Do tell. . .

And please also tell me when you, and Tim Atkins, and ALL other UUA Trustees will publicly confess to your "sin of omission" in doing absolutely nothing to hold Rev. Dr. Peter Morales or any other UUA leader accountable for the UUA's disgU*Usting misuse of Canada's blasphemy law which not only flagrantly disregards and wantonly violates most if not ALL of UUism's Seven Principles, but which also put an ignominious end to the centuries old tradition of opposing blasphemy laws that Unitarian and Universalists proudly upheld until recently resigned UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales, and "retired" Executive *Vice* President Kathleen "Kay" Montgomery, to say nothing of other corrupt and incompetent UUA leaders and staff. . . shamelessly ended that proud tradition by falsely accusing Yours Truly of the archaic criminal act of "blasphemous libel" on Friday June 1st of 2012.

I hereby remind you, Tim Atkins, and ALL other UUA Trustees that within days of being falsely accused of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel by the UUA's Canadian attorney I demanded that the UUA must formally withdraw its false blasphemous libel accusation against me (to say nothing of other false or highly misleading accusations it brought against me), publicly apologize for bringing that and other false accusations against me, and publicly disclose exactly how many UUA ministers have actually been charged, tried, and convicted of committing "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" yet, to date, the UUA has obstinately refused to meet any of these reasonable demands which are fully in alignment with UUism's claimed Seven Principles, perhaps especially the 2nd, 4th & 6th principles of Unitarian Universalism.

Rev. Kimberly Rochelle Hampton And UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales' Audacious Misuse Of Blasphemy Law To Hide Pedophilia And Rape Committed By Certain Unitarian Universalist Ministers - What's The Connection?

How about this plagU*URized parody version of Rev. Kimberly Rochelle Hampton's public criticism of "resigned" UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales that Yours Truly just posted as a comment responding to this Facebook post of Kimberly Rochelle Hampton aka Kim Hampton?

Robin Edgar
Sweet Tibetan Buddha!

That the first Latino President of the UUA had the Big Fat U*U Audacity to hire the UUA's Canadian attorney, Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors defamation and litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe, to say,

"Your unfounded and vicious allegations to the effect that ministers of the Association engage in such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape are... defamatory to an extent such that they constitute blasphemous libel which is prohibited under section 296 of the Criminal Code (R.S.C. 1985, c. C.46.1).”,

while leading an organization that has the case of Rev. Mack Wallace Mitchell in its history of clergy sexual abuse is beyond comprehension, but to the eternal shame of the tiny, declining, fringe religion known as The U*U Movement aka Unitarian Universalism. . . NOT beyond belief.

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/.../blasphemy-law...


Update 4:30pm aka TEA Time Sunday April 23 2017:

Sadly, UUA minister Rev. Kimberly Rochelle Hampton decided to "memory hole" the above comment. Here is the comment that I posted in response to Kim Hampton's knowing and willful participation in Unitarian Universalist clergy sex abuse cover-up and denial. . .

"Memory holing" my comment was a HUGE mistake Rev. Kimberly Rochelle Hampton. Doing so makes you not only 100% complicit in the UUA's immoral and UNethical misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in legal bullying intended to hide UU pedophilia and rape, but deleting my comment also makes (you) a knowing and willful participant in UU cover-up and denial of "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers". I had hoped for better from you.

Will Jim Key Resign As UUA Moderator Over His Participation In UUA Cover-Up And Denial Of Child Sex Abuse Committed By UUA Clergy?

Just asking. . .

In this email aka "electronic communication" I just sent to *Certified* Risk Management Consultant James C. Key aka UUA Moderator Jim "See No Evil" Key and the UUA Board of Trustees. . .

Dear UUA Moderator Jim Key,


Over three years ago, on Wednesday, December 11, 2013, you wrote:

"Robin, in response to your email, I can only repeat what I wrote in my last email: "
you can be assured that I take very seriously the issue of clergy  misconduct as well as lay leadership misconduct.  It has my attention, the Board's attention, and the Administrations's attention."  I am sorry that my assurance isn't sufficient for you at this time.  I will continue following on this important and sensitive issue until it is resolved.  Moreover, I will report progress along the way via reports that follow our board meetings."
Just over 6 months later, during your first Moderator's Report to a General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association aka UUA GA 2014, you brazenly lied about not only UU clergy sexual misconduct in general, but sexual abuse of children most certainly committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" if may borrow a phrase from the second cease and desist demand letter that the UUA's Canadian attorney sent to me in June of 2012.

i.e. this one:

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/2013/01/stikeman-elliott-litigation-lawyer.html

There was more than enough information about UU clergy sexual misconduct provided to you in the emails that I sent to you in 2013, to say nothing of the hour and a half long telephone conversation that I had with you in September of 2013,

i.e. this one:

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/2014/01/uua-moderator-jim-key-national.html

for you to be made aware that no less than 400 UUA congregations had been affected by one form of clergy sexual misconduct or another, and that "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" had actually been charged, tried, and convicted of committing what the UUA's Canadian attorney, Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe, described as "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" in the first cease and desist demand letter that he sent to me via email on Friday June 1st, 2012, and which I was only too happy to be served with by a bailiff later that month. Certainly by early December of 2013 you were in a position to know that "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" had been convicted of "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", yet in June of 2014 you stood up in front of thousands of UU delegates attending the 2014 UUA GA and brazenly lied to them in what was ostensibly an official apology to victims and survivors of clergy sexual misconduct aka clergy sex abuse committed by "less than perfect" UUA ministers.
My thorough point-by-point analysis of your utterly worthless "official apology" to victims of UU clergy sex abuse, which was ostensibly delivered on the part of the UUA Board of Trustees, may be read here:

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/2015/12/uua-moderator-jim-key-liar-liar-pants.html


So please explain to me how I, or anyone else for that matter. . . "can be assured that (you) take very seriously the issue of clergy misconduct as well as lay leadership misconduct" when you brazenly lied about UU clergy sexual misconduct in general, and UU clergy sexual abuse of children in particular, in your "less than honest" "official apology"? How can I, or anyone else. . . be assured that clergy misconduct "has (your) attention, the Board's attention, and the Administrations's (sic) attention", when the most recent reports of the Board's Congregational Boundaries Committee that is chaired by UUA Vice Moderator Denise Rimes leave the distinct impression that the UUA is once again dragging its clay feet when it comes to reform of seriously flawed and inadequate policies and procedures for the handling of clergy misconduct complaints? 


During the April 2010 meeting of the UUA Board of Trustees I brought it to the attention of the Gini Courter chaired UUA Board that not only were the UUMA & MFC policies and procedures for dealing with clergy misconduct seriously flawed, but that they were often disregarded when clergy misconduct complaints were filed with the UUA, and that there was no appeals process whatsoever for clergy misconduct complainants whose clergy misconduct complaints were dismissed out of hand by the UUA, or otherwise mishandled in a manner that was neither just, nor equitable, nor compassionate. Indeed I pointed out to the Board that the complete dearth of ANY appeals process whatsoever for clergy misconduct complainants was completely out of alignment with UUism's Seven Principles, most notably the second principle which clearly calls for "justice, equity, and compassion in human relations." That warning was ignored, and seven years later (almost to the day) not only is there no appeals process for clergy misconduct complainants in place, not even a temporary interim appeals process that could easily have been put in place seven years ago following my warning until an improved and permanent one was implemented, but you and Denise Rimes and the current UUA Board of Trustees are dragging your feet when it comes to creating and implementing a viable appeals process for clergy misconduct complainants whose complaints have not been responded to with genuine "justice, equity, and compassion".


Your quite evidently empty, and apparently even insincere, assurances to me in your email of December 11, 2013, to say nothing of your promises and assurances to other clergy misconduct complainants, have now been repeatedly betrayed by your very own words and actions, and indeed by your very own negligent inaction in terms of responsibly implementing a viable appeals process and other necessary reforms to the UUA's clergy misconduct, to say nothing of your past and ongoing negligent (and complicit) inaction regarding my very serious grievances arising out of the Rev. Dr. Peter Morales led UUA administration's immoral, UNethical, borderline criminal attempted misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying that was-is quite evidently intended to conceal the readily verifiable fact that "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" most certainly committed "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape". I remind you that the Rev. Dr. Peter Morales administration's false blasphemous libel accusation against me not only violates most of UUism's Seven Principles, perhaps most notably the fourth & second principles, but also betrays the centuries old tradition of opposing blasphemy laws that Unitarians and Universalists adhered to until UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales, UUA Executive Vice President Kathleen "Kay" Montgomery and other top-level UUA leaders and UUA staff ended that tradition on Friday June 1st, of 2012.

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/2012/06/uua-unitarian-universalist-association.html


You and the UUA Board of Trustees have not only FAILed, but have even obstinately refused, to respond in responsibility to my emails and other communications (i.e. Tweets and Facebook comments etc.) arising out of the UUA's attempted misuse of Canada's archaic blasphemy law in clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying that clearly sought to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" from the American and Canadian public. You have refused to hold Rev. Dr. Peter Morales, or any other UU minister or UUA leader implicated in this fiasco, accountable for the UUA's attempted misuse of blasphemy law in legal bullying that was-is obviously intended to hide child sex abuse committed by UUA clergy, to say nothing of UUA Religious Educators etc. This is a far worse breech of morals and ethics than the issue(s) that former UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales recently resigned over. Through your negligence and complicity, and by that I mean both you and ALL members of the UUA Board of Trustees who have been made aware of the UUA's immoral and UNethical misuse of blasphemy, you have ensured that the next President of the UUA will inherit a mess of Rev. Dr. Peter Morales making because you did absolutely nothing to clean up that mess before President Morales resigned over unrelated issues.

I thus hereby call upon you to follow the example of Rev. Dr . Peter Morales, Rev. Harlan Limpert and Rev. Scott Tayler by tendering your resignation as UUA Moderator so that a Unitarian Universalist lay leader who is not guilty of gross negligence towards, and effective if not knowing and willful complicity in, the UUA's false blasphemous libel accusation against me or brazenly lying about UU clergy sexual abuse of children may take over the helm as UUA Moderator. As far as I am concerned, and I am confident that most reasonable people will agree with me when presented with the readily verifiable facts, you are a knowing and willful participant in past and ongoing UUA cover-up and denial of
"such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" in not only doing absolutely nothing to hold anyone accountable for the Rev. Dr. Peter Morales administration's false blasphemous libel accusation against me, but also in not only minimizing UU clergy sexual misconduct in general, but brazenly lying about the sexual abuse of children, even the forcible rape of children, by child molesting UUA clergy in your utterly worthless UUA Board "apology" to victims and survivors of UU clergy sexual misconduct. As far as I am concerned you have seriously comprised your credibility and personal integrity by knowingly and willfully participating in ongoing UUA cover-up and denial of clergy sexual misconduct in general, and clergy sexual abuse of children in particular, and someone who possesses much more credibility and personal integrity than you is required to lead the UUA towards a better future, assuming the UUA even has any future worth speaking of in the wake of its past and ongoing betrayal of Unitarian Universalism's Seven Principles and other claimed ideals of Unitarian Universalism. 

UUA "Marketing Materials" say: "Nurture Your Spirit. Help Heal Our World."

But you and FAR too many other outrageously hypocritical UUA leaders, to say nothing of FAR too many hypocritical UUA ministers and ordinary U*U "lay leaders", have repeatedly proven through your words and actions, or indeed through your shameful complicit silence and obstinate inaction aka gross negligence, that most U*Us are chronically unready, obstinately unwilling, and apparently even pathologically unable to do what is necessary to even begin to heal your so-called "UU World" let alone heal the much larger real world.

Sincerely,




Robin Edgar aka The Emerson Avenger

Unitarian Universalist Women's Federation And Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape Committed By Certain Universalist Ministers - What's The Connection?

How about this rapidly "memory holed" comment that I posted in response to the Unitarian Universalist Women's Federation Facebook post entitled 'UUWF Board Statement on the UUA' earlier today?

Robin Edgar If the UUWF is committed to justice for women and girls why has it not yet spoken out against the brazen bald faced lies that UUA Moderator Jim Key spouted about sexual abuse of women, and indeed sexual abuse of girls aka children, in his worthless "official apology" to victims of UU clergy sexual misconduct?

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/.../uua-moderator-jim...

Why has the UUWF chosen to remain in complicit silence regarding the UUA's immoral, UNethical, and indeed borderline criminal misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying that was quite evidently indeed to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed against *girls* to say nothing of boys. . .

Unitarian Universalism Is A White Supremacist Group LOL!

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

Take the word of *Certified* Risk Management consultant James C. Key aka UUA Moderator Jim "See No Evil" Key, as posted to the UUA Board of Trustees Facebook account:

We are well aware that to many of you the term “white supremacy” seems harsh and even inaccurate when applied to our beloved faith. Some of you are asking,

“What will the outside world think if we describe ourselves as white supremacist? Isn’t this just one more misguided example of liberal guilt at play?”

In a word, no.

The term white supremacist once referred exclusively to individuals and organizations that openly espoused the superiority of white people. In recent years the term has come to refer to a culture, or a social narrative that places the needs, desires, stories, well-being, and the very lives of white people over and above those of people of color. It is the water we swim in. It is so much a part of our lives and of the life of our Association that it has just become business as usual. We have chosen to use the term and to endorse the teach-in called for by many of our religious educators because we are absolutely committed to staying awake to the challenges before us. White supremacy is a continuum. When we refuse to acknowledge our place in that continuum we risk being lulled back into complicity. Not this time friends.

Forward together. Not one step back.

Jim Key

UUA Moderator and Chief Governance Officer

Rev. Diane Olenick Rollert Viciously Kicks "Resigned" UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales In His Big Fat U*U Balls!

Rev. Dr. Peter Morales Resigning As UUA President Means Not Having To Hear The Voices Of The People He Offended In Person And Leaving Others To Deal With His Big Fat U*U Mess

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

Take the word of UUA Board Trustee Elandria Williams, as posted in this comment on this post on DRUUM's (Diverse Revolutionary Unitarian Universalist Multicultural Ministries) Facebook account which solicited reactions to Rev. Dr. Peter Morales' resignation as President of the UUA.

Elandria Williams resigning means not having to hear the voices of the people in person and leaving others to deal with the mess

Here is my response to Elandria Williams' comment:


 Robin Edgar I agree 100% with Elandria William's take on Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales' resignation, but this latest UUA fiasco is just one part of a much bigger overall mess that Rev. Morales is leaving for the next president of the UUA to inherent from him. Former UUA President Morales is guilty of misusing Canada's blasphemy law in UUA legal bullying intended to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers". This not only makes a TOTAL mockery of most if not all of the Seven Principles of UUism, but also betrays the centuries old tradition of opposing blasphemy laws that Unitarians and Universalists held to until President Morales ended that tradition on Friday June 1st, 2012. . .

UUA "Religious Educator" And OWL Trainer Steve Caldwell Sucks At Freely And Responsibly Practicing Unitarian Universalism's Fourth Principle

In this "less than Truthful" comment that he posted in response to my own comments on The Washington Post's article about the recent resignation of UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales headlined:

'Turmoil Over Diversity Strikes Unitarian Universalist Association'



UUA Religious Educator and OWL Trainer Steve Caldwell, who has apparently blocked me from responding to his comments on The Washington Post's website, and has also apparently arranged for my previous responses to his comments to be deleted aka "memory holed" by The Washington Post's "moderators" aka censors. So I am posting my point-by-point rebuttal of Steve Caldwell's DIM Thinking U*U BS here. . .


: Robin -- your complaints about Rev. Morales are off-topic here.

I disagree. My
complaints about UUA President Rev. Morales' immoral, UNethical, borderline criminal and yes. . . #BatShitCrazy misuse of Canada's blasphemy law are very much on-topic in terms of what may well be hidden "behind the scenes" reasons for his recent resignation as president of the UUA. In fact, I freely and responsibly, and very openly and publicly. . . suggested that Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales should demonstrate some true humility by accepting responsibility and resigning UUA #leadership to pave the way for healing, and preventing further damage to the church, last summer. . . 

:And you seem to forget that Rev. Morales was the President of the Unitarian Universalist Association and has no leadership role for the Canadian Unitarian congregations that are the focus of your anger. 

And you seem to forget that Rev. Morales, in his capacity as the President of the Unitarian Universalist Association, did in fact have a significant #leadership role regarding responsibly dealing with the various U*U injustices, abuses, and hypocrisies that were, and still are. . . the focus of my past and ongoing public criticism of "The U*U Movement", and my past and ongoing efforts to obtain some genuine justice for not only myself, but numerous other people who have been victimized by UUA clergy, U*U "churches", and indeed revictimized by not only UUA staff, but even top-level UUA leadership.

:The congregation that you had your disagreements with wasn't a UUA member congregation.

LOL! I like how you try to limit my "
disagreements" to just the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal which by the way *was* a UUA member congregation back in 1996 when I first shared my concerns about the anti-religious intolerance and bigotry that I had encountered there with UUA President Rev. Dr. John A. for AssHat Buehrens. In fact, from their earliest stages, my "disagreements" arising out of Rev. Ray Drennan's verbally and psychologically abusive clergy misconduct, which was firmly rooted in his own "Fundamentalist Atheist" anti-religious intolerance and bigotry, have included "disagreements" with top-level UUA leadership such as former UUA President Rev. Dr. John A. for AssHat Buehrens and former Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee Director Rev. Diane Miller, to say nothing of the other "less than perfect" members of the UUA's ever so aptly named Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee, such as Texas registered sex offender Rev. Douglas Morgan Strong. . .

: After 2002, the Canadian Unitarian Council (CUC) became an independent organization and left the UUA.

Yes, that the "official story" for the purposes of the official "history" of "the tiny, declining, fringe religion" known as The U*U Movement aka Unitarian Universalism, but
you seem to forget that my "disagreements" with the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal and the UUA's Ministerial *Fellowship* Committee etc. began in 1996, a good six years before the UUA decided that it no longer had any use for the Canadian Unitarian Council (CUC) for money-laundering purposes etc. etc.: The UUA President doesn't run the CUC and had nothing to do with anything that you have falsely labeled as "legal bullying."

You are quite mistaken Steve, like the Rev. Dr. Peter Morales led UUA, you really would have been very well advised to practice The U*U Movement's Fourth Principle, which calls for "a free and *responsible* search for Truth and meaning" before ignorantly "shooting your mouth off" with willfully ignorant U*U BS. Yes,
the UUA President "doesn't run the CUC", at least not officially. . . but recently "resigned" UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales did in fact have a LOT to do with what I have very Truthfully labeled as UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying. What part of "Unitarian Universalist Association and al. vs. Yourself (i.e. Yours Truly aka Robin Edgar aka The Emerson Avenger)" do you FAIL to understand?

ICYMI & FYI. . . It was the Rev. Dr. Peter Morales led UUA administration that hired Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe to falsely accuse Yours Truly of the archaic criminal act of "blasphemous libel" in UUA
clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying in June of 2012. I am still waiting for the Unitarian Universalist Association and al. to formally withdraw their false "blasphemous libel" accusation against me, as well as their other outright false (or at best highly misleading) accusations against me, to properly and publicly apologize for their immoral, UNethical, borderline criminal, and yes. . . #BatShitCrazy clergy abuse cover-up legal bullying, and to finally acknowledge the Truth about just how many Unitarian Universalist ministers (to say nothing of UUA Religious Educators such as Steven Craig Bulleit et al) have not only engaged in "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", but have even been charged, tried, convicted and sentenced to years in jail for committing "such despicable crimes".
