Finally... a Conservative Unitarian Universalist Member Blogging As You Asked! After so many years of singing around the campfire, the call has been answered!
Same to you!
Well if UUA President Rev. Bill Sinkford responds appropriately to this email that I just sent him earlier tonight it just might be a Happy New Year for UUs.In light of UUA President Rev. William G. Sinkford's Holiday Message of December 13th, 2006 the following email was just sent to UUA President William G. Sinkford aka Rev. Bill Sinkford by Robin Edgar aka The Emerson Avenger. It will be most interesting to see how President Sinkford responds to it or indeed *if* President Sinkford responds to it.

For the record, UUA President Bill Sinkford has failed quite miserably to respond appropriately to my email as have most other U*Us. Looks like our little war of words will continue for some time yet. . .
On the other hand, the lack of a response is, in a way, a response.
Of course his complicit silence is a response. An entirely inappropriate one. . . and one that reeks of hypocrisy in light of the letter and spirit of his 2006 'Holiday Message' about "Waging Peace". I dare say that President Bill Sinkford is doing a great job of waging hypocrisy. . . Par for the course for him and many other two-faced U*U "religious professionals".
I sent this follow-up Open Letter to UUA President Bill Sinkford on Monday. Copies were sent to all UUA Trustees, UUA Moderator Gini Courter and various UUA administrators. It has also been posted to The Emerson Avenger blog here - http://emersonavenger.blogspot.com/2007/06/open-letter-to-uua-president-bill.htmlHow much do you want to bet that President Sinkford will completely ignore it? Date: Mon, 18 Jun 2007 15:57:39 -0400 (EDT)From: "Robin Edgar" Subject: Some Serious Questions For President Sinkford To AnswerTo: firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.comAn Open Letter To UUA President Bill Sinkford From Robin EdgarMonday June 18, 2007Dear President Sinkford,I am still waiting for genuine justice and an appropriate formal apology from the UUA for the well-known and well-documented injustices and abuses that the UUA is responsible for perpetuating, condoning and even effectively endorsing. I expect genuine justice to be done and a formal apology to be delivered to me on your watch. I am hereby reminding you that I have already informed you in a previous email communication that I expected a formal apology to be delivered to me by the 2007 UUA GA which is just days away. It would appear from your passive resistance, your negligent inaction, and your complicit silence that you have virtually no intention of genuinely waging peace with me as per the letter and the spirit of your Holiday Message of December 1, 2006.http://www.uua.org/news/newssubmissions/14040.shtmlWhen are you and other U*Us going to begin genuinely realigning your lives with your purported values in your human relations with me and other victims of clergy misconduct and/or other U*U injustices and abuses?When are you and other U*Us going to begin to actually move toward change and reconciliation with me and other victims of U*U injustices and abuses?When are you and other U*Us going to sincerely commit yourselves to the spiritual practice of waging peace - in your hearts, in your congregations and communities, and in the so-called U*U world?When are you and other U*Us going to move from the futile to the effective, from the stagnant to the active, from the destructive to the creative way of life?I am still waiting for justice and equity President Sinkford, as are other victims of various injustices and abuses that have been perpetrated by U*U clergy and/or U*U congregations. These serious injustices and abuses have been perpetuated, and indeed significantly escalated and aggravated, because you and other U*Us in positions of authority and responsibility have repeatedly chosen to do little or nothing to responsibly address, and adequately redress, those injustices and abuses that have been committed against us by U*Us.I am still waiting for you and other U*Us to actually begin waging peace with me and other victims of U*U injustices and abuses. When will you and other U*Us begin waging genuine justice, genuine equity and genuine compassion in your human relations with us? When are you and other U*Us going to actually begin to walk what you apparently insincerely talk President Sinkford? When are you and other U*Us going to begin to genuinely practice what you preach?I am still waiting for an answer Bill. . . I am still waiting for justice.If you want genuine peace you must provide genuine justice to me and other victims of U*U clergy misconduct and other injustices committed by U*Us.Sincerely,Robin Edgar
