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.

Rev. Eliza Galaher And Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church Of Austin Texas Web Site's Search Function - What's The Connection?

How about absolutely nothing?

Which means that Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church aka WUUC has taken down aka deleted aka "memory holed" absolutely EVERYTHING that had been previously posted to its website regarding the "alleged" clergy sexual misconduct that its "resigned" minister Rev. Eliza C. Galaher had been very credibly accused of approximately five years ago.


But don't worry U*Us, I long ago downloaded most if not all of those WUUC web pages, and I even took screenshots of most if not all of the pertinent web pages, so I will almost certainly be reposting the web pages that Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church has "memory holed" here on this blog in the near future. I will however also be giving Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church an opportunity to republish the Unitarian Universalist history materials that it has "memory holed", or to FAIL or refuse to do so. . .

That being said, it does seem that the "alleged" clergy sexual misconduct of Rev. Eliza Galaher is "a clear and present danger" as it were that is still being openly discussed by the current Board of Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church, as this PDF file of the Minutes of the Board of Trustees Meeting of April 12, 2017 should make abundantly clear. Since the Board of Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church may decide to "memory hole" those very recent Board minutes I am providing screen shots of them here and now. . .






In fact some of the things stated in those Board minutes are actually quite promising, and suggest that Wildflower Church leadership may eventually get around to responsibly reporting Rev. Eliza Galaher's "alleged" clergy sexual misconduct to the Austin Police Department, to say nothing of the FBI and Homeland Security, as they really should have done five or more years ago. In fact, I have been considering doing just that myself for some time now. . . I think this gives me the prerogative to go ahead and report Rev. Eliza Galaher's "alleged" clergy sexual misconduct to what former UUA President Rev. Dr. John A for AssHat Buehrens would call "the secular authorities", but I will probably give Wildflower Church leadership an opportunity to do the right thing before I do. . .

At present there is very little information about Rev. Eliza Galaher's "alleged" clergy sexual misconduct against one or more her female congregants available on the interconnected web of the internet aka the interwebs, thanks to the fact that *someone* at Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church, quite possibly at the request-demand of *Certified* Risk Management Consultant James C. Key aka UUA Moderator Jim "See No Evil" Key, saw fit to "memory hole" the several pages worth of quite revealing information that *was* available for quite some time until it was "memory holed". In fact, other than the very recent WUUC Board meeting minutes that I have linked to and provided screenshots of, the following sanitized (mis)information about Rev. Eliza Galaher's "resignation" to ostensibly "concentrate her ministry more on social justice", provided in the "history" of Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church, is all that I can currently find.

2007

May 11, 2007, the congregation called its first full-time minister, the Rev. Eliza Galaher, who began her ministry on August 1.

2012

In January 2012, Rev. Galaher announces her resignation effective May 31, 2012 to concentrate her ministry more on social justice and the church begins the search process for an interim minister. In August 2012, Rev. Kate Rohde begins a two-year term as interim minister.

It is interesting that in the Board notes they refer to "questions about the age of the victim." They wouldn't have any questions if the person were older, but only if the date of the events in question and the age of the victim were relevant.

It is indeed "interesting" that in the notes aka "minutes" of the April 12, 2017, Board of Trustees meeting of Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church, "questions about the age of the victim" are mentioned. This statement, to say nothing of various other statements in the Board meeting minutes, does raise some "interesting" questions in its own right. As you seem to be suggesting here, this statement suggests that "the victim" may have been a minor, it also suggests that there was only one single victim of Rev. Eliza Galaher's alleged or actual clergy sexual misconduct. In relation to these two suggestions, I find it "interesting" that the official "church history" of Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church says:

"In December 2012, the UUA notifies (interim minister) Rev. Rohde and the Wildflower Board that Rev. Galaher has resigned her status as a minister because of a UUA investigation of her for conduct unbecoming a minister. Galaher admits that she sexualized her relationship with a married member of Wildflower."

So "the victim" in this presumably factual scenario is "a married member of Wildflower", a person of inherent worth and dignity who is unlikely to be a minor aka under-age. I say factual rather than Truthful, because this scenario may be a misleading half-truth that conceals the possibility (dare I say "probability" that there was more than one single victim of Rev. Eliza Galaher's alleged or actual clergy sexual misconduct, and that there are "questions about the age of the victim" regarding at least one of them. . .

As this blog post states, there was MUCH more information about Rev. Eliza Galaher's alleged or actual clergy sexual misconduct available on WUUC's website in the not so distant past. I downloaded most if not all of it some time ago, and took screenshots of much of it too. Clearly *somebody* thought it would be a good idea for the leadership of Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church to "memory hole" that information. In fact, I smell the possible influence of *Certified* Risk Management Consultant James C. Key aka UUA Moderator Jim "See No Evil" Key in the "memory holing" of the fairly extensive information that was available to be read online in the recent past. I will be formally asking the Board of Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church to republish all of the material that was "memory holed", and to provide and explanation regarding why it was "memory holed". I am especially interested in knowing if UUA Moderator Jim Key had a hand in this concealment of this Unitarian Universalist clergy sexual misconduct history after Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church had done something that I consider to be commendable. Another possibility is that Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church was threatened with a lawsuit by Rev. Eliza Galaher herself, so I think this is all the more reason to demand an explanation for why the web pages arising out of her alleged and*or actual clergy sexual misconduct was deleted.

I have been concerned about the fact that Rev. Eliza Galaher was never prosecuted for her alleged and*or actual clergy sexual misconduct against at least one female member of Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church for some time now. I could be mistaken, but I have reasonable grounds to believe that Texas is one of those states which has a law requiring churches to report clergy sexual misconduct to what Rev. Dr. John A. Buehrens calls "the secular authorities" and most other people who aren't pompous U*Us call "the police". I have seriously considered reporting Rev. Eliza Galaher's alleged and*or actual clergy sexual misconduct to the appropriate "secular authorities" myself, and had pretty much decided to do so earlier this year. It was just a question of "getting around to it", and also strategic and tactical timing of when it would be best to report Rev. Eliza Galaher's possible crimes to the police.

Even prior to seeing the "minutes" of the April 12, 2017, Board of Trustees meeting of Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church, which came as a direct result of trying to access the quite revealing materials that had been previously posted to its website in the last week or two, towards this end, it had been my intention to give the leadership of Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church the opportunity to report Rev. Galaher's alleged and*or actual clergy sexual misconduct to the police first. Since WUUC's Board is talking about doing exactly that in these very recent Board minutes, I think I will just "sit tight" and "wait and see" what happens during the upcoming May Board meeting of WUUC next Woden's Day, before contacting Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church leadership regarding reporting Rev. Eliza Galaher's possible "crimes and misdemeanors" to the appropriate "secular authorities", which may well extend beyond the Austin Police Department now that Eliza Galaher has "crossed state lines" as it were. This *may* be a matter for the FBI now, and possibly even for the Department of Homeland Security if the recent arrest of Rev. Ron Robinson on child porn charges is any indication of which "secular authorities" can and do handle such clergy sex abuse matters these days.

So. I can, and will. . . wait less than a week to see what happens during the May Board meeting of Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church, before contacting WUUC leadership to let them know that I am keeping an eye on the situation, and that I WILL report Rev. Eliza Galaher's possible crimes and misdemeanors to the appropriate "secular authorities" if they FAIL or refuse to do so. I would thus ask you (whoever you are) and anyone else reading this blog post, to respect that decision I have taken by not "jumping the gun" yourself. Let's give WUUC's Board the opportunity to decide to "do the right" thing during the May 2017 Board meeting of Wildflower Unitarian Universalist Church without any outside influence from Yours Truly, you, or anyone else who is "in the know" about these recent developments. Be assured that I will be following-up on this VERY soon and will ensure that Rev. Eliza Galaher's alleged and*or actual clergy sexual misconduct is reported to ALL of the appropriate "secular authorities" in the very near future, regardless of what WUUC's Board decides to do three days from now on Woden's Day May 10th, 2017. . .
