He's not long for the world and still tries to act as a predator looking for prey. Go figure.

Stand down Midge and try to enjoy what remains of your life. Maybe you'll learn something in trying to live sans the constant defense/attack attitude?

I tried suggesting the benefit of generativity and being Christ-like to Professor Midgley, but his twin fury of Mormonism, Kiwi would have none of that. In their own eyes, they constitute the embodiment of righteousness in defending the faith even if it seems unnerving to anyone expecting religion to be kind and gentle. If the Professor wants to be ornery to the very end, then I suppose we just need to duck his erratic bolts of lightning.

Yes, as Lemmie pointed out.
Well, I actually once heard Dr. Shades tell Richard Anderson that this was what he did for a living. Keep in mind that I have agreed not to use the real name of Dr. Shades, when he asked me not to do so. But I did not agree to not indicate what he told Richard Anderson about his employment at that time.

Even then, roughly 10 years ago, it was painfully obvious that he was trying to Colvinize me.

I think this suggests why Elohim isn't a very good aim with lightning either. No wonder Midgley is that way, his deity probably was the same kind of cranky old fart during his own earthly sojourn on his way to ultimate truth and power. If Elohim can figure a way to do it, then Midgley can..... heaven help the future inhabitants of Midgley's own creation......it's gonna be hell to live in it......I wonder if he will be as racist and biased against some segments of his own "children" as Elohim has been to his.
Midgley is as good a mouth and talker as his deity is, instead of a doer, so this makes sense. Do as I say, not as I do, or even don't. Talk all over the place about the love, but please, don't actually go out of your way to demonstrate it......that would take too much effort. Convince everyone instead of the importance of merely believing you in faith, that way you get to sit back in your heavenly Laz-ee-Boy Chair and talk about Love's value without making much effort.....

After posting a genuine and heartfelt tribute to his granddaughter who passed, Dr. Peterson received some nice and genuinely caring comments of support from his readers.

But not everyone.

Midgley, sensing an opportunity to take a shot at the swine posted, “In some genuinely evil circles Dan is actually and constantly depicted as a heartless monster.” So classy to use his friends heart-on-a-sleeve blog entry to be a total prick. Good job, Lou. Well. At least he only had one nasty little comment in the tanks for this one blog entry, right?

You’d be wrong.

After Moksha makes a nice post to Dan, Lou “the little ____” Midgley decides to keep besmirching Dan’s post with his ____ behavior, “Moksha: Please try to keep in mind that in your own world Latter-day Saints are constantly mocked and ridiculed. I cannot remember doing this previously, but this morning I actually had a brief peek into your world. I was simply stunned. I beg you to leave that world of lies and hatred and come back to the Way, Truth and Light that brings hope and wipes away all our tears now, and in the life after life.“

Gee, Moksha. I wasn’t aware you had left that world?

I wanted to respond to Midge and ask that he please keep in mind that the blog entry was about Dr. P's grief at losing a granddaughter and not about Midge's continued poor defense of his boorish stalking behavior. But that would have further detracted from the blog post.

Incidentally, if Midge really wants to put on a defense, he should present himself here to respond to questions and not hide out at sic et non. I have some questions regarding why he was wearing a name tag at the Christchurch meeting. Why announce he was going to inspect whether or not there was a Community of Christ group that meets on the south island of New Zealand? How did he meet Gina Colvin's husband there? Midge claims Gina Colvin's husband wanted to meet but the subsequent report of the meeting from Gina Colvin says otherwise. What was the SP's involvement? Area President's involvement? Why the telephone call from the Area President afterward where the Area President wanted to know how the meeting went? Why the exaggerations of the church meeting recently? Midge wants to portray the meeting as some sort of pentecost experience now. And there are probably other questions

So how about it Dr. Midgley? How about you bring your evidence here and respond to questions so the matter can be resolved once and for all?

He can’t remember reading here previously? What a liar Midgley is. He has posted many times about how obsessively he reads here.

Here’s just one example, documented in this thread, that midgley posted this year (I apologize for repeating the nasty racism toward Dr. LOD, but it’s difficult to find a post by Midgley that does NOT contain racism, personal attacks, or mean-spirited lewdness directed toward those he considers enemies of his religion):
Louis Midgley DanielPeterson

...I don't known if you have noticed, but the Little Old Donkey, posting on he sewer as Dr. LOD again, has described how he finally discovered his true native American identity, and jettisoned all talk about Lamanites.

He did this on that Shady Thing because Simon Southerton is advertising a new self-published "book" he wants to peddle to the inmates of that prison. This helps explain where all that bigotry about "white people"--including especially me--came from.

I strongly suspect that if we knew the LOD's name, we would not think that he was a native American at all.

Louis Midgley Dr. Shades 5 hours ago
Fake Dr. Shades asks the wrong question. The right question is whether he, and Doctor Scratch, who boasts about being the fake B. H. Roberts Chair of Mopologetic Studies at a fake university, equal or superior to ordinary faithful Latter-day Saints? Or is someone like Dr LOD (aka Dr. Velho Burrinho) even competent, or honest, or an academic/scholar?

I don't expect a reply here, but I can just imagine the chatter that my questions will generate on the thing that Dr. Scratch operates.

https://www.patheos.com/blogs/danpeters ... 4952690880
Lol. Is the midge suggesting that no person outside of his religion is even “equal to” an “ordinary, faithful” LDS member ?

And they let this guy teach political science at an accredited University? Unbelievable. The only chatter this guy will get is further agreement that the ouster from Maxwell Institute of his type of thinking was well-deserved. Midgley makes his religion look ridiculous.

Louis "the stalker" Midgley, doesn't help his case any with this barb directed at Dr. Shades:

"There was exactly no eavesdropping, unless you are describing why you were standing there while the Andersons and Midgley chatted, and he introduced himself to you, and then in his typical kind, gracious way, "forced" you to identify yourself, and so forth. It was later, according to my records, that I learned that you the "corrections officer" was the Shady One."

"According to my own records." You'll note the continued '1984'ing' of Midgley's narrative, by the way.

Of course. It is impossible to be so otherwise. All Mormons are Mini-Me Elohims......... they are already Gods, the geriatics in Salt Lake City have convinced them of it. It's a done deal. Therefore, they are superior in everyway.....I mean LDSFAQS will back them on that one, he already has experienced, read, learned, and done more than all persons on this message board combined can ever even hope to. They are all going to be worshipped. Just ask em. They just wish that the worshipful, obedient genuflecting to them would begin here in this life is all. It's why they always pout and spout. Because none of us bother.

Lyin’ Louis Midgley continues to ‘big brother’ his own stalking behavior with yet another whopper:

“This morning was the first time that I have even glanced at that rubbish. Dr. Shades could have easily put a stop to what Professor Peterson correctly describes as your Slander and Defamation on his board.”

As anyone who has followed this thread and the relevant sic et non posts, Midge made his own bed by his actions and Dr. P did the same with his plagiarism (which I think has been corrected by him, finally).

Yep totally not a racist, that silly Professor Midgley. /s

Sorry to disappoint my Native American side is matrilineal. Because of that I was left with a rather ordinary last name from my fathers side. Too bad my moms maiden name is unmistakable in its origin.

Later he tried pulling the same BS approach with discounting Gina Colvin’s background. So apparently he feels the color of his skin gives him some kind of authority to make those determinations.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, Dr. LOD, but I believe this comment from the Proprietor was directed at you:
DCP wrote:Vegan Burrito is a toxic and hateful jerk. Pay no attention to him.
FARMS refuted:

"...supporters of Billy Meier still point to the very clear photos of Pleiadian beam ships flying over his farm. They argue that for the photos to be fakes, we have to believe that a one-armed man who had no knowledge of Photoshop or other digital photography programs could have made such realistic photos and films..." -- D.

Their opinion does not affect me in the least bit. The behaviors exhibited over the years by the Proprietor and his sidekicks I find repugnant. Why the church tolerates such a unprincipled "defense" is perplexing.

One does not make it through medical school, and residency without developing fairly thick skin.

The Midge:

"And we are all commanded to now do our duty as well as we can to bring light and life to a still fallen world by allowing ourselves to become Holy Ones (Saints) by showing others in deeds and words that sanctification both badly needed and also possible here and now."

He said to them, "Go into all the world and be an insufferable asshole to all of my creations." - The Gospel of Lou, Chapter 24, Verse 7

Li'l Lou Midgley continues to practice the Gospel of Lou with this missive: "cockroach #2: Your cockroachness once again is clearly manifest in you comment. You were the one who flopped into the cockroach trap, or who marched right into the very best of roach traps--that is, the one set out for you by gemli itself. Some roaches, I am told, can actually fly. I doubt that this is true of either gemli or you."

Depersonalization of individuals is the first step to something worse. Here is where calling someone a "cockroach" has also been used.

The odd part is that the proprietor himself repeatedly and obsessively declares that he doesn't want the caliber of dialogue found here to end up over there. Yet now we can clearly see that Lou's dialogue there has become orders of magnitude worse than anything to be found here, BY FAR.

Oh, it just keeps getting better and better. The Mopologists have acknowledged that the use of the term "cockroach" is demeaning and dehumanizing, but now they are arguing that Gemli is a mere "step" away from being on a par with Hitler:
DCP wrote:But it's only a short step -- not at all a leap, and really quite reasonable -- from regarding humans as "meat wads" and as no more significant than cockroaches to putting them in extermination camps, treating them as cannon fodder, seeing them as intrinsically without value, exploiting them as mere means to one's own ends.
So, I guess Midgley and DCP calling Fred Kratz a "cockroach" was meant to teach him a lesson that he's on a path to putting people in concentration camps? DCP has been calling people names for decades: remember Markkk? Or "Mocksha"? If these guys know that this is a pathway to National Socialism, then why do they engage in it so often? (Remember: the Nazis were fond of censorship, too....)
