Once again, Robin Edgar has nothing new to report or discuss. So once again, he rehashes the same old tired complaints and accusations. ‘I don’t like how these people treat me! Forget how I treat them – they should always be extra-super-nice to meeeee! And if they don’t, I’m gonna tell on them!!!’
His latest rant is to single out three Unitarian Universalist churches for ‘inhuman’ treatment of others. Of course, he doesn’t specify what exactly these churches did; in the case of two of them, we have to wonder if he has even visisted them. (Not that we are encouraging him to do so, considering what a ‘visit’ from Robin Edgar usually means!) Let us take a closer look, shall we?
Unitarian Church of Montreal – The central target for Robin Edgar’s endless rage. Their crime? They would not kowtow to his increasing demands, and they refused to put up with his childish, outrageous behaviour. They were, in fact quite patient with him, having suspended his membership twice before finally terminating his association with the church. Not to mention enduring his endless picketing and lashing out.
First Parish in Norwell – The only reason we can think that this church is a target is that its minister, Reverend Victoria Weinstein, has been in Robin Edgar’s crosshairs for years now, searching for even the flimsiest excuse to lash out against her yet again. So why attack the congregation? Apparently, it’s based on a quote from Reverend Weinstein, supposedly describing some of her parishioners. Forget that it’s taken completely out of context. After all, the only ‘truth’ Robin Edgar is concerned about is his own narcissistic view that ‘U*Us are all bad bad bad because they won’t agree a hundred percent with me me me!‘
First Parish Church in Northborough – Now this is a strange one, indeed. Again, the only ‘inhuman’ activity related here are the crimes of Reverend Mack Mitchell, for which he is currently serving a prison sentence. But what of the church itself? Considering that his own parishioners turned him over to the authorities, isn’t that reason to commend them rather than condemn? Oh, not for Robin Edgar, who so loves the idea of guilt by association to ‘prove’ his tired old assertion that ‘U*Us are bad bad bad!‘
It is becoming clear that the only purpose for Robin Edgar’s antics is to make UUs look bad, all out of a disturbed ‘need’ for vindication and vengeance. As Dr. Phil McGraw would say, ‘How’s that workin’ for ya?’ Doesn’t seem to be. He’s gotten nowhere with persuading anybody in the UU movement to follow him, and his ideas for interfaith celebration have since petered out.
As we’ve pointed out before, doing the same thing over and over, with nothing to show for it, cannot be healthy. You need professional help, Mister Edgar – and we don’t mean a public relations firm. You need to see a qualified psychiatrist– not somebody with a degree who will go along with what you think you want. Please get the help you need, and get it now!
