It should be noted that Louis Midgley has had an intense and burning passion for the topic of homosexuality since at least the 90’s as evidenced by this letter he wrote to the Tanners:

http://www.shields-research.org/Critics/TannerIn.htm

In short, something is going on there...

Oh my. What a filthy mind Midgley has. And the manners of a mindless oaf.

Any of these [facts regarding Quinn’s homosexuality,] if made known to your readers, would undercut Quinn's credibility and prove embarrassing to your efforts...

It makes you wonder whether Lou and Matt joined the Straight Edge gang at that time, perhaps harassing individuals on the Provo streets who were not wearing white shirts on Sunday. That could have kept any compulsion toward bullying under control in 1997.

Lol.
And today? Maybe I missed something, but is Peterson hinting here that people should just ignore Midgley?

If a hater screeches in a forest and nobody is listening, does the screech really make any sound at all?
That’s a little mean, calling his friend a screech!

Self-Ex: That is that blog that my friend Nathan's wife runs, is it not? My own most important and very clever and inexpensive, as well as rewarding, bit of stalking and harassing was that two-week tour that began in Sydney, Australia, after a very restful 14 hour flight from LAX to the Graham Kingsford Smith International Airport in Sydney, and the two full days before we reached New Zealand, and then eventually when we reached a place an hour and a half drive to Christchurch, since the port from which it takes only at most a half hour to reach that city (which is not on the coast) had been seriously damaged in the recent earthquake, in the hope that we could arrive in time for Sacrament meeting.

This clever way of stalking and harassing Gina Colvin assumed that she had once been a member of the Ward the travel agency had picked among those in the Christchurch Stake, and that she would have somehow chosen to turn up that very Ward on that Sunday morning.

Unfortunately my devious and diabolical plan for bashing and abusing poor Gina Colvin was foiled by the fact that the Ward whose sacrament meeting the travel agency had picked for 17 of us to attend had had their 10:00am Sacrament Meeting canceled and that, instead, two Wards had met at 9:00am and the Stake President had turned the two Wards into three.

We arrived just as that meeting was ending. And, unfortunately, instead of being able to confront Gina Colvin, I was met instead by a very delightful Maori lady with a Ph.D., who stunned me with a gift of a beautiful greenstone pendant for defending the nineteenth-century Maori Latter-day Saint historical narrative.

But all was not lost, since Gina Colvin's husband, whose Ph.D. is in Political Science, was there and we became good friends.

Rats, no opportunity for stalking and harassing. This is the sad story of my life.

There was, however, another very delightfully restful merely 14 hour flight from Sydney to LAX.

As Robert Burns would say, "The best-laid schemes gang aft agley". Still, you held true to what you told Gina back in December about showing up at her ward, even if it was late and she was not there. So it was not a washout since you were able to meet her husband. That should count for something.

The amazing thing to me is that the cruise line configured its entire itinerary -- including choosing to do a cruise focused on New Zealand in the first place -- as a co-conspirator in this massive and horrifyingly evil plot.

That The Evil Church did its part by calling Professor Midgley on two missions to New Zealand in order to instill in him a love for the place and its people that would motivate him to take several private trips there on his own in order to provide a fig-leaf of cover for this particular demonic journey scarcely needs mentioning. The Church is -- need I say it again? -- Eeeeevil.


Moksha DanielPeterson • a few seconds ago
Ah, so the cruise line was sailing across the ocean with no particular destination when it decided to head for New Zealand? Much easier to fathom Dr. Midgley arranging his itinerary ahead of time. Combining a sentimental journey with a little side order of stalking and fava beans may have been just the thing that Dr. Hannibal Lecter would recommend.

Dr Exiled: “Looks like someone got the wires crossed on this one. I wonder if the corona virus taking the wind out of the conference sails caused an announcement to be made that shouldn't have?“


Is that how the narrative is playing out among the misanthropic apostates, is it?

“Who cares if Covid-19 has killed more Americans in 3 months than the Vietnamese did in 10 years? The important thing is that it disrupted General Conference!"

Wow. Does Kiwi really hate all people who leave his church that much? Even for him, this statement is beyond the pale.

Find some character, kiwi, or at least stop posting until you pull yourself together. Your disdain for those different from you is pretty despicable.

I notice that you carefully avoided responding to my comment about the "Primitive believer" issue, above.

The anonymous and cowardly Velhoburrinho maintains his worthless libel against the kind, decent - and named - Professor Midgley; the sneering, pretentious and supercilious Lemmie backs up that libel with her arrogant and uninformed judgmentalism; and you back their nastiness by posting a picture with a racist caption.

I call out this display of cowardly vileness as I see it, and you think I'm being nasty to poor little innocent you. Of all people.

That's funny!

Wow! The anonymous, cowardly, worthless, sneering, pretentious, libelous, arrogant, uninformed, judgmental, nasty, racist, poor, little (did I catch all his adjectives?) Kiwi is going to burst an aneurysm with all this hate!

Sweetie, surely you have something better to do than obsess like this over online posters. Maybe you could offer to fact check Peterson’s blog entries so he doesn’t plagiarize so often. If you have time to insert thirteen derogatory adjectives, you have time to insert sets of quotation marks! (Honest professors everywhere will thank you.)

Kiwi57 Logophile • 5 days ago

The owner of all the sockpuppet accounts, who may or may not be the late and unlamented EV, can only log in under one sockpuppet account at a time. He/she/it goes down the page, upvoting comments by those in his/her/its team and downvoting comments by those he/she/it hates - apparently without reading them - then logs out and logs in again under another account to repeat the process.

It's an abuse of the voting system, of course, but the herd at the Sty love to abuse things, as well as people.

This is precisely how Kiwi and Louis do their downvoting whenever they see a name that triggers them. That way the two of them can validate their inner demons.

Louis Midgley DanielPeterson an hour ago

I have been he direct object of Lance Hemmert's comments when he and others took over the Kiwi Mormon blog, when I posted the following after meeting Gina Colvin's husband in Christchurch, New Zealand. I was the first to comment on her most recent blog item:
"Dear Gina: I really enjoyed my recent very brief visit to Christchurch. I was pleased that the Stake President urged me to introduce myself to Nathan. I very much enjoyed our conversation. I was previously unaware that you knew that I even existed.
I hope you enjoyed the contents of my little koha. Rob also has a book manuscript almost finished. He has added to his work on Maori matakite a huge number of moemoea.
I forced our driver/guide to take us to one of those mosques where those terrible killings took place.
You have my email address. So it is possible for us to have a private conversation.
I must also add that I see Donald Trump as a failure as a human being. He is, however, not the only one who fits that description."
Note: koha (gift), matakite (seer), moemoea (dreams and visions). Rob is a distinuished Maori scholar.

This produced a host of responses, led by Lance Hwmmert, in which I was accused of being a liar, bloodthirsty, mean-spirited, rude, a bigot, a creepy stalker, paranoid, of being a racist, of stalking and harassing, both on line and in person, and by Lance Hemmert of both vile and boorish behavior.

https://www.patheos.com/blogs/danpeters ... 4895927079
Midgley, as well as every reader here and at Sic et Non knows full well how his post came across. Gina herself has commented on Midgley’s stalkerish behavior and has warned her husband about his mean-spirited and abusive tactics.

Midgley is just reveling in his bullying. It’s an ugly look and just more evidence why the Maxwell Institute felt the need to dismiss his and Peterson’s type of mopologetics. Apparently even the LDS church and BYU are feeling the need to distance themselves from these mopologists and I don’t blame them. Who needs to be associated with Midgley’s bullying meanness and barnyard sensibilities?

(On a similar note, Midge “forced” his driver? He is a bully everywhere, apparently.)

Um, there's a moron in Washington D.C. who has a way with women, who could probably use a good right hand man and fellow bully warrior against those evil liberals. Right now he is probably injecting himself daily with some kind of disinfectant or other, so he can remain alive and continue to tell us all of his legendary greatness with some tweets. Perhaps we could clue Midgley in, it could help his retirement income as well, I smell a WIN/WIN here... the two are make out cousins, at least intellectually. Of course he would have to leave Peterson's sty, and that might make him homesick. But Donald could line him up with a riff of women he knows who can provide Midgley "comfort."

Hey Kiwi? She wasn't wrongly identified as "Lemmie", you dolt. Lose the narrative much?

Go take a nap. You're tired, buddy.

Increased Restoration Magic - with Priesthood blessings.

Increased Alteration Magic - blend, ketchup, mustard, relish, and mayonnaise just right to make fry sauce.

Hope that helps.


Hoosier Moksha • 16 hours ago
Oooooooo, magic. Spooky. Because taking religious observance and miracles and calling them "magic" is sooooo clever and definitely hasn't been done approximately 3486123751043628946 times before.

And I've never heard of fry sauce made with mustard and relish. It would kind of ruin the effect.


Kiwi57 Hoosier • 15 hours ago

The problem is that Moksha has spent years on a truly toxic message board where almost all of the regulars hate the Church with a bitter and intense hatred; and they enjoy it when he mocks us, and especially the matters we hold sacred.

So, after all those years of being praised and appreciated for his (from a safe distance) mocking, he comes here and expects the same kind of reception.

But he doesn't get it.

And not only does he not get it, he doesn't get why he doesn't get it.

Unfortunately, he's also completely lacking in anything like self-awareness. So when he discovers that we don't enjoy being verbally poked in the eye, the poor little fellow decides that he's an innocent victim, and we're being mean to him.

Just adding to the reasons to go to church (the topic). The point I don't get is your need to be a human flamethrower. This humorless apologetic approach to religion would undoubtedly leave a bad taste in the mouth of a casual observer.

No, the very best fry sauce has a dash of mustard and a bit of relish. Add some curry powder with a dash of sriracha and the alteration magic turns it into some delicious Danish remoulade sauce.

The absolute irony of this statement has to be noted:

"Louis Midgley > DanielPeterson

Dan: You are going to confuse poor gemli by explaining proper English to gemli."

I've never seen an 'educated' man who has mangled the English language more consistently than what Louis Midgley does. A day doesn't go by that one has to question if he's high or drunk, because his grammar and misspellings are so numerous he makes himself look like a high school dropout.

These guys at Sic et Non need a chill pill. Moksha's humor would be a reason to go to church, especially if the ward were filled full of self-righteous cheerleaders. The church simply doesn't stand up to scrutiny if one properly divides fantasy from reality. So, humor is demanded at the veil and everywhere church related.

When one looks at apologists' behavior, especially kiwi57 and the midge, one sees a lack of faith. They seem like they feel put upon being Mormon, in having to wear the Mormon badge and "sacrifice" for their faith that they get angry at the harmless humor Moksha provides. If it were true, Moksha's ribbing wouldn't work as it would obviously appear to be coming from some flat-earther trying to make fun of those who believe in a sphere shaped earth. It doesn't and that makes the mopes furious.

Midge is at it again, pretending he doesn’t know why his comments on Gina Colvin’s blog were inappropriate.
Louis Midgley Moksha an hour ago

Mok: I recently had an experience with "attack dogs" all from your home board. After posting a perfectly nice comment to Gina Colvin after I had met her husband in Christchurch that I posted on her Kiwi Mormon blog, I was immediately called a racist, liar, bloodthirsty, rude, mean-spirited, a bigot, accused of stalking, trolling, and of being guilty of vile and boorish behavior, and of racist exploitation of the Maori, and so on and so forth.


All of this came out of the clear blue from your friends and associates on Dr. Shades board.

https://www.patheos.com/blogs/danpeters ... 4897659676
“Out of the blue”? ____.
Louis Midgley DanielPeterson 3 days ago

Dan: I agree. It was like I was suddenly on that truly disgusting Shades thing. I had no idea that my perfectly harmless note to Gina Colvin would turn her blog into a virtual MormonDiscussions.com. I am confident that she did not anticipate what happened any more than I did.... https://www.patheos.com/blogs/danpeters ... 4892634196
More ____. Actually, Gina anticipated quite well that Midgley would attempt to use personal information about her in a stalkerish, abusive way.

From earlier in this thread documenting Midgley’s stalking of Colvin:
She chided her husband a bit, listing three "reasons to go the LDS Church on Sunday (these are not a direct quotation but a close paraphrase, as Dr. Peterson would say):

1. Louis Midgley might be present and my husband might think again about becoming a new friend of Midgley's.

2. I would remind my husband that Midgley is "mean and has publicly said cruel things about me" and rather than nearly inviting him to have dinner at our home, he might have defended me.

3. I could also prevent my husband from disclosing personal information that Midgley "might use in his rudeness."

...She later noted that her husband "clearly missed the name" when she read "the rude troll things" that Midgley has said.

http://mormondiscussions.com/viewtopic. ... 2#p1218532
Midgley keeps bringing this up, pretending he has no idea what’s going on. If that’s true, then he is mentally challenged. If it is not true, he is just a thug and a bully, nothing more.
