Season’s Greetings to our readership! Now that we have had time to review the latest rants on ‘The Emerson Avenger’, our thoughts.
Robin Edgar has quite a bit of venom reserved for ordained UU ministers, what with his latest round of giving ‘virtual lumps of coal’ to his usual list of ‘suspect’ ministers. Worse, as is typical with his being so very stuck in the past, his complaints are years old. Even Old Saint Nick is more forgiving, as he only gives you coal if you have been ‘naughty’ during the past year.
Reverend Cynthia Cain is the recipient of his wrath for a blog post about US Republican Party screeds which she wrote in September of 2008. Anybody with common sense reading this can figure out she is opining about the lack of civility amongst leading GOP figures during that election year. Unfortunately, Robin Edgar is incapable of thinking beyond a simplistic ‘all-or-nothing’ mindset, so he sees criticism of the actions of some as condemnation of all, which in his mind amounts to ‘Big Fat U*U hypocrisy’ – a crime which, keeping with his histrionic approach, can never be forgiven, and must always be
Reverend Victoria Weinstein has received particular attention on ‘The Emerson Avenger’, especially for a post from March of 2006 in which she lashed out against a US Senator with admittedly tasteless remarks. Then she took the blog post down. Not good enough for Robin Edgar, who deems that he shall haunt her with obsessively repetitive posts about this for years to come – literally!
Reverend John Buhrens in our opinion should consider his ‘lump of coal’ a badge of honour. Robin Edgar bestowed it upon him for his letter from – get this, friends – May of 1996, in which the then President of the UUA rightly criticizes Mister Edgar for trying to use the Candles of Joy and Concerns as a platform for lashing out at the Unitarian Church of Montreal and their minister, and then attempting to pass out yet more copies of his incredibly lengthy letter of complaint. Reverend Buhrens, if you are reading this, we salute you. Please feel free to use Robin Edgar’s dubious ‘gift’ to keep yourself warm.
Last but not least, Robin Edgar once again rehashes his allegations that Reverend Ray Drennan, now long since retired, labelled him a psychotic. Well, whether Reverend Drennan or anybody else at the Unitarian Church of Montreal called you crazy, Mister Edgar, we would think that the least appropriate response would be to behave in such a manner as to confirm such an accusation. Instead, you have not only behaved in such a fixated and inappropriate manner lo these many years, but by your own admission you have done so in order to deliberately offend and irritate people. Is it that you are so desperate for attention, Mister Edgar, or that you have no idea of how to behave in such circumstances? Either way, if anybody is deserving of lumps of coal, it is the self-confessed ‘not-nice’ author of ‘The Emerson Avenger’ blog, for his immature and outrageous conduct year after year after year.
