You Must Forgive My Frustration

You see, I was harassed verbally by someone who attends my church. Then she hacked into my e-mail account. She is my ex-girlfriend.

And the minister, rather than taking my side, took her side. I was told to not come back until September.

I fail to see the logic, being that I am clearly the one being harassed here. Wouldn't it make more sense if both SHE and I were forced out? And yet, she is still allowed to attend, being that she has threatened a fellow member of the congregation.

The minister took her side because she's been there longer than I have and she has given more money. But isn't that antithetical to the message of UUism? Isn't church as business the very thing we revile as Unitarians. I am deeply ashamed of my minister, my church, and their response to the matter.

But I place the blame squarely on the minister of the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Atlanta and how badly managed the situation is.

I am in legal proceedings against the church as to how badly handled this affair was.

I don't want this to reflect poorly on UUism as a whole, but it certainly does leave a bad taste in one's mouth.
