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

How about this plagU*Urized parody version of an excerpt from a sermon that Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang aka Vicki The Impaler delivered to her First Parish Norwell U*U "Church" parishioners approximately six years before she so immorally, and so UNethically, (dare I say so “sinfully”?) colluded with the Unitarian Universalist Association and the UUA's "less than perfect" Canadian attorney, 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 legal bullying that, amongst other things. . . was intended to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by Peacebang's pedophile rapist First Parish Norwell parishioner Richard Buell from the public?

I thought I’d share this excerpt from a sermon Peacebang gave in 2006 since there seems to be a broader challenge to those U*Us who persistently and conveniently misinterpret U*Uism's First Unitarian Universalist Principle to mean that they should not be taken to task for their egotistical and obstructionist attitudes in The U*U Movement. It has fresh relevance today in the broader conversation about Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein aka Peacebang colluding with the Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales led UUA in immoral, UNethical, borderline criminal, and yes. . . #BatShitCrazy misuse of Canada's soon to be repealed blasphemy law in UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up and denial legal bullying that was*is quite evidently intended to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" most certainly committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" (to say nothing of certain UUA Religious Educators and Peacebang's pedophile rapist parishioner Richard Buell) from the public aka all persons of inherent worth and dignity.

Unitarian Universalists share a set of seven principles. The first among them is a commitment to affirm and promote “the inherent worth and dignity of each person.” I think this is a beautiful principle, and I am happy to see that Unitarian Universalists take it seriously enough to invoke it on a very regular basis in the wider denominational context.

But Boston, I think we U*Us have a Big Fat U*U Problem. When it comes to the notion of moral or ethical FAILings, also known as “sin,” U*Us tend very often to jump right to the first principle and to say, “Remember, that person has inherent worth and dignity!” It’s as though that’s it, that’s the final truth, and therefore, we must not delve at all into the question of whether or not there is some moral or communal failing or problem that needs to be named and fixed.


Our Big Fat U*U "Mistake" is in seeing our first principle as a kind of sociological and psychological claim rather than an ontological claim. (An ontological claim is a claim about the nature of reality itself.) To use simpler language, we have often insisted that because each person has “inherent worth and dignity,” they can really do no wrong, in the final analysis, because to accuse them of doing wrong is akin to accusing them of being wrong and unacceptable in some basic way. This kind of attitude really stymies conversation and stifles healthy conflict. It says, “There’s no such thing as sin, because we’re all inherently worthy!”

Well, of course we are inherently worthy. But we are also occasionally terribly wrong and terribly harmful. The first principle should not be the ending point for our view of human nature, and a conversation stopper, it should be the starting point – the first assumption — for our work toward spiritual growth and ethical commitment. The first principle should be the optimistic claim that starts us on our way knowing that we can ascend higher on the ladder of moral evolution.


That first principle was written to remind us that there are many people whose voices have been silenced, whose humanity has been denigrated, and whose full participation in the notion of God’ s grace has been questioned. Our first principle calls us to serve as guardians for the humanity and dignity of those people especially, and to promote such conditions for all people as allows that dignity and worth to flourish. It was never intended to be used as a defense plea for my sins or yours, but as a rallying cry toward an ethic of universal kinship.

– from “Inherent Worth And Dignity, The Starting Point”

Delivered to the First Parish Unitarian Church in Norwell, March 12, 2006, The Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein

CLF Senior Minister Rev. Meg Riley Viciously Kicks "Resigned" UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales And "Retired" UUA Executive *Vice* President Kathleen "Kay" Montgomery In Their Big Fat U*U Balls*!

In this plagU*Urized UUA version of  a Rev. Meg Riley reflection that is posted to the Church of the Larger Fellowship's 'Quest for Meaning' blog:

“Empathy, compassion, and clear communications spring from a different kind of knowing than does parsing complex theological doctrine. Both are important…The world is a richer place when we respect the many different ways that people exhibit brilliance, and come to know what they know. May we create a world together where all ways of knowing are honored and respected.”

Read the full reflection from Rev. Meg Riley online at Quest for Meaning.

The Church of the Larger Fellowship’s spiritual theme for July is “ways of knowing.”

The Unitarian Universalist Association Is Quite Corrupt And Racist

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

Take the word of Unitarian Universalist "gadfly" Chris Barghout, as posted to the U*U World blog in this comment Chris Barghout posted in response to the U*U World article entitled:

In resigning, some UUA staff received ‘shocking’ severance

So the UUA is racist and now quite corrupt as well. And by not publishing the names of this con or the amounts, the interim board is complicit in this charade. Legally, if this were a large corporation that UU's complain about or the government, the names and amounts paid would be compulsory. Legally therefore, the church is hiding behind its church status in keeping info from us, its members. That Bill Sinkford and the board are astonished and shocked while keeping us in the dark is pure baloney. (Baloney not my first choice of words but this article would have been deleted). Half a million from the budget disappeared could not be kept secret for long. Black leaders elected almost exclusively by whites, who complain about a culture of white supremacy, while at the same time only give out info that would certainly been outed at GA, while withholding the more important info about who and how much, don't appear to be anything approximating the beloved community they give lip service to. And the two leading candidates for new denominational president both represent ministers from communities where housing costs at least 1.5 million and up and where one sends her kid to a segregated school (check it for yourself) it's in her bio.

Every night we hear about what did Trump know or one of his underlings know about Russian collusion, now us liberals get to have the same fun conversation. Believing the interim board and others were in the dark for 2 months, that they are freely giving us info now, that things are as they appear is impossible to stomach. The one thing to be sure of is the money is gone or will be soon. The other is unless this magazine or others become more then the UU equivalent of Fox news, things will be swept under the rug.

UUA President Susan Frederick Gray Gets Another Electronic Communication From The Emerson Avenger

In the form of this comment that I posted earlier today in response to this post about the UUA Board of Trustees that new UUA President Rev. Susan Frederick Gray posted to her Facebook account on July 8th, 2017. Without further ado, here is the typo corrected and "annotated" version of my comment:

Every single one of those "great people" on the UUA Board of Trustees is 100% complicit in the Unitarian Universalist Association's immoral, UNethical, borderline criminal, and quite frankly insane (being polite here), misuse and abuse of Canada's blasphemy law in UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying that was*is quite evidently intended to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" most certainly committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" from the public by intimidating me into deleting aka "memory holing" certain The Emerson Avenger blog posts that tell the readily verifiable Truth about "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers", to say nothing of certain UU Religious Educators and lay leaders. It is time for the UUA Board of Trustees, and*or your new UUA administration, to "do the right thing" by doing what I demanded within days of being falsely accused of the archaic criminal act of blasphemous libel by the Rev. Dr. Peter Morales led UUA in June of 2012.


The UUA must formally withdraw the false blasphemous libel accusation that it brought against me in June of 2012, and should withdraw any other outright false or highly misleading accusations that it made in the two cease and desist demand letters that I was served with by the UUA's Canadian attorney, Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe, in June of 2012.

The UUA must officially, and very publicly, apologize for its immoral, UNethical, and borderline criminal attempted misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying, which not only wantonly disregards and flagrantly violates several of the Seven Principles of Unitarian Universalism, most notably the 2nd and 4th Principles, but also outright betrays, and effectively puts an end to. . . the centuries old tradition of opposing blasphemy laws that the Unitarian and Universalist religious communities upheld until Friday June 1st, 2012, when the UUA ended that tradition by falsely accusing me of violating Canada's soon to be repealed blasphemy law.

The UUA must publicly disclose exactly which Unitarian Universalist ministers have been charged, tried, and convicted of committing what Maitre Marc-André Coulombe quite aptly described as "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", Rev. Mack Wallace Mitchell is not the only UUA minister who fits that description, there are a number of others who the UUA must identify. The UUA must also disclose how many UUA ministers have been credibly accused of committing "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", or other serious sexual assault, even if they were never actually convicted of committing these despicable crimes.

I have a few other demands arising out of the shameful clergy abuse cover-up legal bullying that the Rev. Dr. Peter Morales led UUA initiated in June of 2012 and never repudiated, and some other demands arising out of previous UUA foolishness, but these three demands absolutely must be responsibly acted upon quite rapidly if you want your UUA administration to avoid being accused of being complicit in the UUA's as yet to be withdrawn false blasphemous libel accusation against me.

Please refrain from deleting aka "memory holing" this critical comment, since doing so will make you a knowing and willful participant in ongoing UUA cover-up and denial of "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers". It would be best for all concerned that your new UUA administration gets off to a much better start than immediately signaling its complicity in UUA clergy abuse cover-up and denial.

I hope that you will live up to the letter and the spirit of not only UUism's Seven Principles, but also your own statements about UU clergy misconduct in the lead up to your election as President of the UUA.

Please ensure that the UUA unblocks me from sending emails to your UUA administration, and the current UUA Board of Trustees, so that lines of communication may be reopened, and the quite regrettable mess that you inherited from the Rev. Dr. Peter Morales led UUA administration, UUA Moderators Gini Courter and Jim Key, and a negligent and complicit UUA Board of Trustees may be responsibly and rapidly cleaned up.

Thank you,

Robin Edgar aka The Emerson Avenger

UUA President Susan Frederick-Gray Gets An Electronic Communication Courtesy Of The Emerson Avenger

In the form of this comment that I just posted in response to Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray's Facebook post about being elected as the first elected woman president of the Unitarian Universalist Association:

Congratulations Susan.

I too appreciate the way you, Rev. Alison Miller, and Rev. Jeanne Pupke kept to the high ground during the 2017 UUA presidential election campaign. I also appreciated what all three of you said in your "CONVERSATIONS in the spirit of Elizabeth Palmer Peabody and Margaret Fuller Ossily" interviews with Rev. Deborah Pope-Lance and Rev. Gail Seavey which are available to be viewed on YouTube. I don't have "high hopes" for your presidency, because having "high hopes" in UUA leadership is less than well advised in my experience and observation. I do however have cautious and I believe quite reasonable hopes for your presidency, especially with regards to what you will do to reform the UUA's policies and procedures for handling all forms of clergy misconduct, both sexual misconduct and non-sexual forms of clergy misconduct, and what you will do to provide genuine "justice, equity, and compassion" to not only recent victims of UU clergy misconduct, but victims of "historic" clergy misconduct whose misconduct complaints were mishandled by past UUA administrations.

Sincerely,

Robin Edgar aka The Emerson Avenger

P.S. One of my hopes is that you will refrain from deleting aka memory holing this comment. Please don't disappoint me.

Child Sex Abuse IS Happening In Unitarian Universalist Congregations

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

Take the word of newly elected UUA President Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, as quite clearly stated 16 minutes in to her recent U*UTube interview with Unitarian Universalist clergy sex abuse experts Rev. Deborah Pope-Lance and Rev. Gail Seavey as part of their "CONVERSATIONS (sic) in the spirit of Elizabeth Palmer Peabody and Margaret Fuller Ossily" series of U*UTube videos.

The exact words of UUA President Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray regarding child sex abuse happening in UUA congregations are:

"We want to think there's not child abuse in our congregations, and we want to think that our clergy certainly would not misconduct. So one of the most important things that comes first is saying "No" this is going to happen, this IS happening."

So, although Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray did not go into any specifics about the kind of child abuse that IS happening within UUA congregations, and she did not name any UUA ministers who have been charged, tried, and convicted of committing various forms of child sex abuse (indeed what the UUA's Canadian attorney, Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe, quite aptly describes as "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape") she none-the-less made it quite clear that child abuse IS happening in UUA congregations, and this statement was within the context of a larger discussion about clergy sexual misconduct committed by Unitarian Universalist ministers. This is a refreshing change from the immoral, UNethical, and utterly shameful institutional denial of child sex abuse committed by UUA ministers that recently resigned UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales, and even more recently resigned (to say nothing of recently deceased) UUA Moderator James "See No Evil" Key are quite evidently guilty of.

What Rev. Frederick-Gray says leading into those statements, and following them, is also quite revealing about U*U clergy misconduct matters, so I would invite U*Us, or anyone else who is concerned about Unitarian Universalist clergy misconduct issues. . . to watch the whole video from beginning to end.


I would also invite persons of inherent worth and dignity to watch the videos of the interviews of the two other candidates for UUA President who were not elected. i.e. Rev. Jeanne Pupke and Rev. Alison Miller since they both have some interesting, and quite valuable. things to say about U*U clergy misconduct issues that are worth being aware of.

UUA Membership Statistics For 2017 Maintain The Status Quo Of Unitarian Universalist Decline

As in down, down, deeper and down. . .

Almost five months after the February 1st, 2017, deadline for official certification with the Unitarian Universalist Association, the total number of certified UUA congregations for 2017, including those with no financial contribution whatsoever to the UUA, is currently 989.

The total number of not-certified congregations for 2017 is 47.

If these two figures are added together, as the UUA habitually does to artificially boost the number of congregations it claims to have for its official annual membership statistics. . . the total figure is 1036 UUA congregations, which is 2 congregations fewer than 2016. In reality however, many of the not-certified congregations have been not-certified for several years now, and thus should be removed from the UUA's official membership statistics. In real terms, the UUA actually has less than 1000 congregations in the so-called U*U World, and this has been the status quo for quite some time now. . .

Click here for a more detailed analysis of the UUA's membership statistics for 2016.

Rev. Dr. Rebecca Ann Parker Viciously Kicks Resigned UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter Morales And "Retired" UUA Executive *Vice* President Kathleen "Kay" Montgomery In Their Big Fat U*U Balls!

In this plagU*Urized version of the Rev. Dr. Rebecca Ann Parker's words that are posted to the UUA's web page devoted to the 1st Principle of Unitarian Universalism.

Reverence and respect for human nature is at the core of Unitarian Universalist (UU) faith. We believe that all the dimensions of our being carry the potential to do good. We celebrate the gifts of being human: our intelligence and capacity for observation and reason, our senses and ability to appreciate beauty, our creativity, our feelings and emotions. We cherish our bodies as well as our souls. We can use our gifts to offer love, to work for justice, to heal injury, to create pleasure for ourselves and others.

‘Just to be is a blessing. Just to live is holy,’ the great twentieth-century Rabbi Abraham Heschel wrote.

Unitarian Universalists affirm the inherent worth and dignity of each person as a given of faith — an unshakeable conviction calling us to self-respect and respect for others.”

UUA Moderator Jim Key's Death And Such Despicable Crimes As Pedophilia And Rape Committed By Certain Unitaria Universalist Ministers - What's The Connection?

How about this slightly improved and "annotated" version of comments that I just posted in response to Devilhead's 'More White Rats Flee the Sinking Ship' post on his Unitarian Universalist Nightmares blog?

I'm still patting myself on the back for publicly suggesting that *Certified* Risk Management consultant James C. Key aka UUA Moderator Jim "See No Evil" Key should follow the example set by UUA President Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales, who quite appropriately resigned on April Fools Day 2017, by tendering his resignation as UUA Moderator for his role in the UUA's past and ongoing cover-up and denial of egregious clergy sexual misconduct, indeed what the UUA's Canadian attorney, Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors litigation and defamation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe, quite aptly described as "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" in the two arrogant and aggressive cease and desist demand letters he had me served with just over five years ago in June of 2012.

I sent UUA Moderator Jim Key the email which is reproduced in this The Emerson Avenger blog post on Friday April 21st of 2017:

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/2017/04/jim-key-resign-uua-moderator.html

Jim Key resigned as UUA Moderator less than four weeks later, albeit for "health reasons" rather than the reasons that I provided in that "electronic communication". Quite evidently, Jim Key did have serious health problems that justified, and even necessitated, his resignation as UUA Moderator, but in that he pretty much had to resign anyway, he could have and should have responsibly dealt with the "sins of commission" and "sins of omission" he was guilty of committing in playing his role in UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up and denial etc., to say nothing of his various other FAILings as UUA Moderator, when he tendered his resignation. Needless to say, Jim Key lacked the personal integrity required to accept personal responsibility for his role in UUA cover-up and denial of U*U clergy sex abuse, which includes but is by no means limited to the sexual molestation, and even forcible rape, of minors aka children by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers". Sadly, former UUA Moderator Jim Key went to his grave without ever confessing to his "sins of commission" and "sins of omission" which include, but are by no means limited to. . . FAILing, and effectively refusing, to hold (former) UUA President Peter Morales (or any other implicated U*U clergy and UUA leaders) responsible for the Rev. Dr. Peter "Beyond Belief" Morales led UUA's immoral, UNethical, borderline criminal, and indeed #BatShitCrazy attempted misuse of Canada's soon to be repealed blasphemy law in UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying, and brazenly lying about UU clergy sexual misconduct in general, and child sex abuse committed by UUA ministers in particular, in the utterly worthless "official apology" to victims of UU clergy sexual misconduct that *Certified* Risk Management consultant Jim Key inappropriately sandwiched into the middle of his first Moderator's Report to a General Assembly of the UUA in late June of 2014.

See: http://www.uua.org/ga/past/2014/business/iii/296122.shtml

And yes, I agree with your point regarding how stress levels "can and will exacerbate pre-existing conditions, including cancer, heart disease, and the like". It seems that former UUA Moderator Jim "See No Evil" Key's Risk Management skills on the personal health care front were no better than his Risk Management skills on the UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up and denial front. . . I have a feeling that Jim Key won't be resting in peace as it were.

For those U*Us who may as yet be blissfully unaware of the disingenuous and mendacious "weasel words", and even brazen #BaldFacedLies. . . that UUA Moderator Jim Key told U*Us about U*U clergy sexual misconduct matters* in his "sorry excuse for an apology" to victims of U*U clergy sex abuse, they are very thoroughly exposed in this The Emerson Avenger blog post:

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

Hasta La Vista Jim Key.

Unitarian Universalist Flower Communion Sunday And The UUA's #BatShitCrazy Misuse Of Canada's Obsolete Blasphemy Law - What's The Connection?

How about the fact that I officially celebrated the fifth anniversary of being falsely accused of the archaic criminal act of blasphemous libel in the immoral, UNethical, borderline criminal, and quite frankly #BatShitCrazy misuse and abuse of Canada's obsolete, and soon to be repealed. . . blasphemy law by the Unitarian Universalist Association's Canadian attorney, Stikeman Elliott Barristers & Solicitors defamation lawyer Maitre Marc-André Coulombe, in UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying during the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal's 2017 observance of "Flower Communion" on Sunday June 4th, 2017?

Boston Globe Managing Editor Christine Chinlund Gets An "Electronic Communication" From The Emerson Avenger

Right around TEA Time of Thor's Day June 8th, 2017. . .
Dear Christine,

During our phone conversation earlier this afternoon in which you obstinately refused to report the eminently newsworthy story about Unitarian Universalist clergy sex abuse cover-up and denial that you and the Boston Globe have been made aware of for quite some time now. . . you said that you did not mind at all if I posted a blog post about your obstinate refusal to report on the Boston-based Unitarian Universalist Association's immoral, UNethical, borderline criminal and quite frankly #BatShitCrazy attempted misuse of Canada's archaic blasphemy law in UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up 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 Boston public.

Here you go. . .

http://emersonavenger.blogspot.ca/2017/06/christine-chinlund-boston-globe.html

And that's just for starters. . .

Certainly from where I stand, you are a pathetic excuse for a Managing Editor of the Boston Globe, to say nothing of a former Spotlight Team investigative journalist, and I fully expect that most members of the Boston public, to say nothing of the American public, will heartily agree with me when they become aware of how you, Boston Globe Editor Brian McGrory, and various other Boston Globe "journalists" have deprived them of their proverbial "right to know" about Unitarian Universalist clergy sex abuse, and immoral, UNethical, and borderline criminal UUA cover-up and denial thereof, for well over three years now, if not the better part of five years.

I hope that you, and Brian McGrory, and other Boston Globe "journalists" are proud of your pathetically role in aiding and abetting the Unitarian Universalist "religion" in its immoral and UNethical efforts to conceal U*U clergy sex abuse of the worst kind, specifically "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape", from the Boston public, the American public, and indeed the world public.

Sincerely,

Robin Edgar aka The Emerson Avenger

Subject: Fw: Unitarian Universalist Association and al. vs. Yourself

Dear Mr. McGrory & Ms. Chinlund,

The Boston Globe has quite regrettably FAILed to responsibly report this newsworthy story to the American public for well over three years now.

Please assign at least one Boston Globe reporter, ideally an experienced investigative reporter from the Globe's Spotlight Team, to report the fact that the Boston based Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) falsely accused me of violating Canada's blasphemy law in UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying that was intended to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers", to say nothing of certain
Unitarian Universalist Religious Educators. If the Boston Globe had reported this story in 2014 it would have been quite difficult, if not impossible, for recently resigned UUA Moderator James C. Key to tell the brazen bald faced lies that he shamelessly told about UU clergy sexual misconduct in general, and UU clergy sexual abuse of children in particular, in the utterly worthless "official apology" to victims and "survivors" of UU clergy sexual misconduct that he inserted into his first Moderator's Report to a General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association on June 28, 2014, eight days after I sent the email that I am forwarding to you now.

See: Moderator's Report, General Assembly 2014

And: The Emerson Avenger: UUA Moderator Jim Key Is A Liar's Liar Whose Pants Have Been On Fire Since At Least June 27th, 2014. . .

This is a Spotlight movie type of story, albeit on a smaller scale due to the fact that Unitarian Universalism is "a tiny, declining, fringe religion" in comparison to the Roman Catholic church. None-the-less, the dynamic of top level church leadership going to extreme, cynical, extremely hypocritical, borderline criminal (if not actually criminal. . .), and quite frankly foolish lengths to conceal clergy sex abuse committed by UUA clergy from the public are very similar to the kind of institutional cover-up and denial that was portrayed in the Spotlight movie. I believe that the Boston Globe should have reported this story in the first half of 2014, when I made a serious effort to have it reported, but the story is just as newsworthy now, if not more so in light of ongoing UUA cover-up and denial of UU clergy sexual misconduct, so I am once again asking you to stop ignoring and burying this newsworthy story and take steps too ensure that it is responsibly reported to the Boston public by mid-June at the latest.

Thank you,

Robin Edgar

Christine Chinlund The Boston Globe's Managing Editor And Former Spotlight Team Investigative Journalist Stubbornly Refuses To Report The Boston Based Unitarian Universalist Association's Misuse Of Canada's Blasphemy Law

In UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up 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 Boston public, the North American public, and indeed the world public. I phoned the Boston Globe's Managing Editor Christine Chinlund just after 2pm today in a follow-up to an email I sent her recently and at least one phone message that I left for her recently too. I was somewhat surprised when she answered the phone herself, as she had previously avoided responding to my phone messages and emails.

To make a not so long story short, during the course of our ten minute long telephone conversation, Boston Globe Managing Editor Christine Chinlund repeatedly and quite stubbornly refused to report the Unitarian Universalist Association's immoral, UNethical, borderline criminal, and quite frankly #BatShit Crazy misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in UUA clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying on the flimsiest of excuses aka rationalizations. Christine Chinlund claimed this eminently newsworthy story, that is a very similar story to the story of Roman Catholic church clergy abuse cover-up that was told in the Spotlight movie, is "of no local interest", even though I repeatedly reminded Ms. Chinlund that Unitarian Universalist Association headquarters are in Boston, and that the pedophilia and rape that the UUA was seeking to conceal from the public in by falsely accusing me of the archaic crime of blasphemous libel took place in Massachusetts in and around the city of Boston. I asked Christine Chinlund if the name Rev. Mack Wallace Mitchell meant anything to her, and she bluntly responded by dryly saying that it did not matter, since she had no intention whatsoever of reporting on the UUA's misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in any case.

Christine Chinlund also (mis)used the old Truth evading ploy of asserting that my eminently newsworthy story about the UUA falsely accusing me of blasphemous libel in legal bullying intended to conceal U*U pedophilia and rape from the Boston public etc. is a "He said, she said." kind of story. Well done Christine Chinlund! Using the old "He said, she said." ploy in obstinately refuse to report a newsworthy story about Unitarian Universalists misusing Canada's blasphemy law in legal bullying intended to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers", some of whom were Massachusetts based UUA clergy. You lend a whole new meaning to Montreal Unitarian U*U, and "retired" Montreal Gazette "Justice Reporter" Sue Montgomery's #BeenRapedNEVERreported hashtag. After all, not only have vulnerable children #BeenRaped or otherwise sexually abused by Boston area Unitarian Universalists, but the Boston Globe #NeverReported the UUA's stunningly hypocritical, and shamefully cynical, attempted misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying that was-is very obviously intended to conceal the Truth about these U*U rapists and-or pedophiles, and to this very day obstinately refuses to report these #Facts to the Boston public.

Speaking of Twitter hashtags, the Boston Globe was, and still is. . . displaying a hashtag saying #FactsMatter on the banner of its Twitter account, but quite evidently #Facts about the Boston-based Unitarian Universalist Association misusing Canada's blasphemy law in legal bullying intended to conceal "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by Boston area U*U rapists don't matter to Boston Globe Managing Editor Christine Chinlund or anyone else at the Boston Globe as far as I can tell, because Christine Chinlund is by no means the only Boston Globe editor or journalist who I have repeatedly asked to report this newsworthy story so that Americans in general, and Bostonians in particular, may exercise their proverbial "right to know" about "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" most certainly committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers" in the Boston area, to say nothing of Unitarian Universalist pedophiles and rapists in the rest of the U.S.A., and the UUA's past and ongoing attempts to cover-up and even outright deny U*U clergy sexual abuse of all kinds as much as it thinks that it can get away with.

#BeenRapedNEVERreported Co-Founder Sue Montgomery's Lawyer Mark Bantey Asserted That Sue "Will Not Hesitate" To Sue Me Two Years And Six Months Ago. . .

I am still waiting for Montreal Unitarian U*U Sue Montgomery to cease and desist from so stubbornly hesitating to act on her insane threat to sue for me for alleged libel for telling the readily verifiable Truth about not only her complicity in the Unitarian Universalist Associaton's #BatShitCrazy misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in clergy sex abuse cover-up legal bullying intended to hide "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers", but her own knowing and willful participation in the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal's deeply misguided efforts to misuse Canada's criminal justice system to force an end to my protest against U*U injustices, abuses, and hypocrisy outside this so-called "Unitarian" "church". To celebrate 5 years of being falsely accused of #BlasphemousLibel by Atheist Unitarian UUA leaders, and 2.5 years of being falsely accused of libel by Montreal U*U Sue Montgomery, I sent the following "electronic communication" to Sue's ostensible lawyer, Montreal #MediaLawyer Mark Bantey yesterday.

Re: Sue Montgomery vs. Yours Truly aka Robin Edgar

Tuesday June 6th, 2017

Dear Mr. Bantey

It is now two years and six months to the day (i.e. 913 full days) since I sent you the forwarded "electronic communication" responding to the highly questionable, to say nothing of quite laughable, cease and desist demand letter that Montréal bailiff Hugo Doucet served me with outside La Tulipe while I was protesting against Montreal Unitarian U*U, "retired" Montreal Gazette "Justice Reporter", #BeenRapedNEVERreported hashtag co-founder, FAILed "wannabe" NDP candidate, "resigned" Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Commission spokesperson, and current "wannabe" mayor of the Montréal borough of N.D.G. - Côte des Neiges, Sue Montgomery's complicity in, and even knowing and wilful participation in, Unitarian Universalist concealment of Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse in general, and U*U clergy sexual abuse of children in particular. You concluded your "less than honest" legal rant by insisting that your ostensible client, Sue Montgomery, "will not hesitate to initiate the appropriate legal proceedings against (Yours Truly)" if I did not immediately remove aka "memory hole" the various internet postings that tell the readily verifiable Truth about Montreal Unitarian U*U Sue Montgomery's complicity in, and even active participation in aka aiding and abetting of, Unitarian Universalist cover-up and denial of U*U clergy abuse. It seems to me that I quite successfully called your Big Fat U*U Bluff 913 days ago didn't I Mr. Bantey? After all Montreal Unitarian U*U Sue Montgomery has now been hesitating for 2.5 years to "initiate the appropriate legal proceedings against" me. Perhaps this Big Fat U*U Hesitation on the part of Montreal Unitarian U*U Sue Montgomery (is) because there simply are no *appropriate* legal proceedings that Sue Montgomery can initiate against Yours Truly for telling the readily verifiable Truth about her, only INappropriate ones aka perjurious legal proceedings aka malicious prosecution. Right Mr. Bantey?

It is very unfortunate that neither you, nor Sue Montgomery, accepted my generous offer of conditional forgiveness if you formally withdrew you false accusation of libel against me and acknowledged that what I was, and still am. . . saying about Montreal Unitarian U*U Sue Montgomery's complicity in the Unitarian Universalist Association's immoral, UNethical, borderline criminal, and I dare say #BatShitCrazy misuse of Canada's blasphemy law in clergy abuse cover-up legal bullying that was quite evidently intended to intimidate me into taking down aka "memory holing" The Emerson Avenger blog posts about "such despicable crimes as pedophilia and rape" committed by "certain Unitarian Universalist ministers", to say nothing of certain Unitarian Universalist Religious Educators aka Sunday school teachers, is not only True, but quite readily proven to be The Truth.

Unitarian Universalist minister Rev. Deborah Pope-Lance has a very low opinion of Unitarian Universalist ministers who engage in such scurrilous Truth concealing legal bullying, and she believes that any Unitarian Universalist minister who engages in such legal bullying should be expelled from the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association. Rev. Pope-Lance, along with a dozen or so other UUA ministers, recently drafted a letter-petition calling for former UUA President, former Executive Director of Amnesty International USA, and current President Emeritus of the Unitarian Universalist Service Committee Rev. Dr. William F. Schulz aka Rev. Bill Schulz to be stripped of his membership in the Unitarian Universalist Ministers Association aka UUMA for his legal bullying that persuaded the Rev. Gail Seavey and the UUMA to "redact" Rev. Seavey's Berry Street Essay aka Berry Street Lecture in such a way as to conceal what Rev. Seavey said about Rev. Dr. William F. Schulz aka Rev. Bill Schulz in it. Dozens of other Unitarian Universalist ministers signed their names to that open letter-petition addressed to the UUMA Board. You may read that letter here if you have nothing better to do with your precious* time.

Letter to UUMA Board

Needless to say, I have a similarly low opinion of not just Unitarian Universalist ministers who engage in such scurrilous Truth concealing legal bullying, to say nothing of the "less than ethical" lawyers like you and Maitre Marc-André Coulombe who are only too happy to participate in, and this enable, such Truth concealing legal bullying. . . but also ordinary Montreal Unitarian U*Us who engage in, or are complicit in, such Truth concealing legal bullying. Your ostensible client Sue Montgomery is one such Montreal Unitarian U*U and, just as Rev. Deborah Pope-Lance and dozens of other Unitarian Universalist ministers are of the opinion that former Human Rights champion Rev. Dr. William F. Schulz aka Rev. Bill Schulz has disqualified himself as a Unitarian Universalist minister as a result of his apparently quite "successful" attempt at Truth concealing legal bullying, I am of the opinion that Montreal Unitarian U*U Sue Montgomery has disqualified herself from being elected as the future mayor of the Montréal borough of Notre-Dame-de-Grace aka N.D.G. and Côte des Neiges through her own FAILed attempt at Truth concealing legal bullying, to say nothing of her complicity in the UUA's FAILed attempt at Truth concealing legal bullying, and her past participation in the "less than ethical" attempts of the Unitarian "Church" of Montreal to misuse and abuse Canada's criminal justice system in justice perverting legal bullying that was clearly intended to force an end to my ability to exercise my Charter guaranteed civil right to engage in peaceful public protest against Unitarian Universalist clergy abuse, and Unitarian Universalist cover-up and denial thereof, outside the so-called Unitarian "Church" of Montreal.

Please be assured that I will be governing myself accordingly in the coming days, weeks, and months.

Yours Truly

Robin Edgar aka The Emerson Avenger
