Here We Go Again

In Uncategorized on October 27, 2010 at 6:18 pm

Round and round Robin Edgar goes.  When he’ll stop, nobody knows.

Yes, we’ve said this phrase before.  Then again, Robin Edgar has been saying the same, tired complaints over and over and over again, compared to repeating one phrase a second time after several months.

At the beginning of October, he posted on the “Emerson Avenger” that the Unitarian Church of Montreal would be ‘repeating [a] shameful image tarnishing history’, and promising ‘More about today’s interesting new developments in shameful Unitarian*Universalist history later.’

He never delivered on that promise.

Now, over three weeks later, Robin Edgar tries to hijack the ‘Sermon in Stones’ blog of Reverend Amy Zucker Morgenstern, to complain yet again about the UCM’s efforts to protect its members and visitors from his endless harassment, labelling those effoprts ‘ritualized dominance struggles’.  For evidence, he shows the same tired Youtube (sorry, ‘U*U-tube’) video of a UCM members calling the police on his cell phone.

So, Mister Edgar, once again you accuse Unitarian Universalists of something for which you yourself are far more guilty.  For years, you have been trying to dominate the discussion among UUs to talk about your gripes and complaints, and how you want the entire UUA and CUC to stop everything and listen to you, you, you.  Not to mention your pickets of the UCM, the UU Ministerial Association, and UUA General Assemblies over the years, which you so smugly label an ‘alternative spiritual practice’.

The hypocrisy.  The hypocrisy…

The very fact that Robin Edgar’s actions have become so hopelessly repetitive is the only reason we could call it ‘ritualized’.  But there is no doubt that Robin Edgar is engaged in a fruitless struggle for dominance within the UU world.  All UUs should listen to him, publish his ‘legitimate’ complaints on their blogs and online bulletin boards, and turn everything upside down to accommodate his craving for vengeance — oh, sorry, ‘restorative justice’.

The only sign of hope is how much further apart his blog posts are becoming.  One theory submitted to us in private is that he no longer has the computer access he once had.  That may be possible, but we don’t think he’d be willing to admit that, and we would think that someone as obsessed as he would find some way to feed his desire to keep up his attention-getting antics.

A second theory is that he is simply running out of steam.  He simply has nothing new to say.  Looking over his content, that is very likely, and we can only hope that he simply decides that his egocentric crusade has run its course, and now (finally!) it’s time to move on.

Then there is a third theory, which is rather frightening to mention (plus, we do not want to run the risk of giving Robin Edgar any more ideas)…


Robin Edgar: Repeating the Past

In Uncategorized on October 5, 2010 at 10:59 pm

After 23 days of silence, Robin Edgar lashes out yet again against the main target of his bile, the Unitarian Church of Montreal.  His latest post hearkens the words of George Santayana, who warned that “those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”

If only he would learn that lesson himself.

Robin Edgar has spent almost two decades repeating the same hypocritical complaints, the same tiresomes tales of woe, the same self-righteous insults, and the same fruitless course of harassment – and still he has not learned.  He has found himself banned from numerous blogs and mailing lists for his offensive and monomaniacal behaviour, barred from stalking and screaming at UCM members and visitors, and arrested for violating a restraining order – and still he has not learned.

Robin Edgar repeats the past, because he is stuck in the past, not to mention his own egotism.  His latest post points to articles from seven and ten years ago, citing his arrest ten years ago, and subsequent acquittal.

So why bring this up yet again?  Why use it in a lame attempt to brand the UCM leadership as hypocritical?  Not to mention the end note about “interesting new developments”?

We can only guess that, once again, Robin Edgar has crossed the line, pushing the Montreal church to call upon legal authorities to protect themselves from his outrageous bullying behaviour.

Just like the grade-school bully, Robin Edgar finds a scapegoat to take cheap pot shots against, and then when his target rightfully seeks protection and redress, harasses his target with taunts of being a cowardly tattle-tale.

Grow up, Robin Edgar – if you are even capable of doing so.

In the meantime, just what has Robin Edgar done to promote his original vision?  Not much, it appears.  Instead, it looks like he has proven another saying of Santayana to be true:

“Fanaticism consists of redoubling your efforts when you have forgotten your aim.”
