Stalky Stalkerton Midgley is clearly guilty of stalking Gina Colvin and her husband. What should the sentence be? Perhaps he should do some community service that teaches him how it is to be Maori, Mexican American, Native American or African American? I could recommend some areas in Las Vegas where he could serve that could teach him what reality is.
Midgley would make the perfect "missionary companion" to our very own LDSFAQS, who, very much like Midgley, has done everything (and done it better than all) and knows everything, and so can teach everything, all the while denying everything of any kind of negative value whatsoever in either their thinking or actions. What a dynamic duo that would be in order to bring peace, order, and love to the awful accusatory world who so desperately needs it and doesn't grasp that fact.

My, my! It would seem that there is a new development in this saga:
Louis Midgley wrote:How could one possibly "investigate" in Christchurch where Gina Colvin may or may not attend church from a bloody cruise ship? What I posted is all in the public domain, Self Exiled. One cannot possibly leave a cruise ship some fifty miles of narrow, winding road from where one has to be tendered from the ship to the shore and then travel for two hours to Christchurch on a bus, and then leave a group and find on Sunday an entirely unknown Anglican church in the hope of just happening that it would be at one and at the right time and place were someone might or might not be doing their and then somehow find where the bus is so that one can get back to the ship so that one can board it before it leaves. Such a thing would be impossible for me at 89.

And I just this afternoon sent a photography of the card that Nathan McCluskey, who is Gina Colvin's husband to the disgusting Dr. Velho Burrinho, who has, like other disgusting swine, refused to believe that I actually met and befriended him at the chapel in Christchurch. I did this because I am very much annoyed at the absurd things he has posted in public about me.
(emphasis added)

Wow! Quite a bold move there, Dr. Midgley! Sending "a photography of the card" to Dr. LOD? Well, this should be pretty easy to verify. But, of course, there are a number of implausible things here. First, did McCluskey really send a "card" to Midgley? Why on earth would he do that? Second, how would Midgley even *know* how/where to send "a photography of the card" to Dr. LOD?

Very strange, but I will be waiting anxiously to see evidence of this "card" from Dr. McCloskey. If it doesn't materialize, then of course, Midgley is a liar.

Professor Midgley did sent me a photograph of Professor McClusky’s business card. I’m not sure what his point is. This may prove he at least was close enough to request a card. And possibly have some type of conversation. Maybe this the Mopologist equivalent of “counting coup.”

But it does little to clear up anything else, concerning him seeking out Professor Colvin while on his New Zealand visit and cruise.

Recall Midgley posted about “cards,” here is the post and link from earlier in this thread:

Louis Midgley Dr. Exiled •

My Dermatologist and his wife were there, and my youngest son and his wife were there, and ten or twelve others were there and witnessed what happened. It was not a chance meeting at all. Gina's husband wanted it to happen, as did his Bishop and Stake President, and on my birthday, on March 12, I had a phone call from the Area President asking how it went. And Nathan and I exchanged cards and we have also exchanged email messages.

You are, of course, perfectly free to "think," if that is the right word, whatever you care to in an effort to continue to make an utter fool out of yourself.

http://disq.us/p/29k9vco
Colvin’s husband and Midgley are exchanging email messages? I’m guessing any “exchange” was one from Midgley followed by a cease and desist order in response. Gina herself has confirmed her husband did not even know who Midgley was, and that Midgley approached him. And now Midgley has the bishop, the stake president and the area president involved in this breach of Gina Colvin’s privacy.
I can only imagine how Midgley misrepresented himself in order to get McCluskey to offer his card. Midgley’s stalking technique is well-developed.

It's very possible her husband is being diplomatic, and Mr. M mistakes that for dear friendship. The bottom line to me though is how the conflict on Dr. Colvin's blog ended. While Dr. Colvin herself didn't respond directly to the massive derail to her thread, note that she let it stand, and note that there are 7 comments pending moderator approval. Six of those are by Midgley and one is by a junior apologist. Absolutely every comment chastising Midgley was allowed to stand. I would say that's pretty good evidence that Midgley's attempts to get chummy by sailing to New Zealand were unappreciated. While to any person with two working brain cells, the seeking out of Dr. Colvin was rooted in desire for conflict, giving Mr. M the benefit of the doubt that he only had the truest intentions to be friendly; sometimes things just don't work out. He went down there and she didn't want to see him. He shows up on her blog and she obviously didn't want to hear from him there either. The right thing to do is to just let it go. Quit bugging her. Quit writing open notes to her and hubby on Sic et Non. Quit abusing hubby's generosity. Quit needling them. It's just the right thing to do, and the best part is that he can stop his advances all under his subjective belief that he'd never done anything wrong, and she had taken offense where none was intended. People do this all the time. People all the time stop and say, "whoa, I didn't expect a response like that! I sure didn't mean anything by it" and then, say to themselves, "Okay I get it, we'll just drop it because obviously this isn't helping." But it's quite obvious that Mr. Midgley has no intention on taking "no" for an answer, and will continue to needle Dr. Colvin by writing open notes on Sic et Non, and by continuing a correspondence with her husband.

Clearly. Prime example:

Louis Midgley Dr. Exiled • 20 hours ago

How could one possibly "investigate" in Christchurch where Gina Colvin may or may not attend church from a bloody cruise ship? What I posted is all in the public domain, Self Exiled. One cannot possibly leave a cruise ship some fifty miles of narrow, winding road from where one has to be tendered from the ship to the shore and then travel for two hours to Christchurch on a bus, and then leave a group and find on Sunday an entirely unknown Anglican church in the hope of just happening that it would be at one and at the right time and place were someone might or might not be doing their and then somehow find where the bus is so that one can get back to the ship so that one can board it before it leaves. Such a thing would be impossible for me at 89.
Midgley is being disingenuous. His visit to Colvin’s husband’s congregation was his plan. First, he confirmed Colvin would likely not be at her own service, which he confirmed by trying to ask her about the “size” of her congregation:

LMidgley: “Would you please explain where this Community of Christ group meets in Christchurch and also how many there are in this group? I will, God willing, be in New Zealand in February, and might drop in to see your new venture, but I will need an address and so forth.”
Once he had satisfied himself that there was no service to attend where he would be, he denied asking and moved to the next stage:

Midgley wrote:

I did not ask Gina for an address where the Community of Christ worships on Sundays in Christchurch.

I more than hinted that she is the only member of the Community of Christ south of Auckland. What is "creepy" about mentioning that she is likely to be the only member of that sinking ship in Christchurch?

I have exactly no interest in where or when she does her Anglican thing.

Now if Gina Colvin just happens to be in the Ward in which we are planning to attend Sacrament meeting, I would not mind meeting her. But, if we end up in the same sacrament meeting and she does not care to introduce herself, that is fine with me.
And how did he conclude he was more likely to see her at her husband’s ward?

LMidgley: “My point was that, if she is not busy doing her Anglican thing, she only has her former Latter-day Saint Ward in which to worship since it is likely that she is the only member of the Community of Christ south of Auckland.”
Stalking, 101. By Louise Midgley.

ETA: or, to use the term Dr. Shades has apparently created, Midgley “colvinizes.”

Ah, I see. So he was given a business card and this is supposed to mean that he's "friends" with Colvin's husband? Is that really the point he's attempting to make?

Wow. Midgley has added several new versions to his tale of stalking Colvin.

First:

Louis Midgley Dr. Exiled 4 hours ago

SelfExiled: You are, as Professor Peterson has pointed out, confused about this. I have not changed my story at all. You have, instead, tried to continuThe truth is effective, unless people choose to reject it, which is exactly what you are doing in what you have said about me. I have not changed the account of what happened when seventeen of us reached that chapel, and within a few minutes the Stake President came up to me and said that Gina Colvin's husband wanted to meet me, and then he pointed him out to me. And as I went toward him in that packed chapel, Nathan approached me and we immediately became friends. I never expected anything like this. I am now in email contact with Nathan. So I have a new friend in Christchurch from whom I learned that his wife, as he put in his first words to me "hates" me and then he explained why.


What you don't seem to understand is that Gina Colvin has ceased being a Latter-day Saint. She has been baptized an Anglican and has become a sort of lay preacher, and has also joined the Community of Christ. Her husband is a devout Latter-day Saint. The fact is that I teased Colvin by pointing out that the Community of Christ has only one congregation in New Zealand, and the not more than a dozen or so adults and children worship only in Auckland.

And you should realize that it would not have been possible for anyone to "pay someone a visit" in an Anglican place of worship in Christchurch while on a tour all mapped out by those who set out this tour in Utah.

http://disq.us/p/29x4wd1
And then this version:

Louis Midgley Dr. Exiled • 3 hours ago • edited
Self-Exiled: The answers to your four "how" questions are easy to answer. The son of the Pacific Area President teaches at the Institute at Utah State. He is a very close friend. We talk all the time. He talks with his father. Knowing this should help you grasp that this was neither mysterious nor sinister.

There are three Latter-day Saint chapels in the Christchurch Stake, and one more chapel that is south of that city. Hence I had exactly no idea when and where Dr. Nathan McCluskey might worship in those three chapels in Christchurch. However, the Area President is a very close friend of mine. He phones me every now and again. And we sometimes enjoy part of a day together when he is in Salt Lake. We have never once talked about Gina Colvin's hatred for the Church of Jesus Christ. Her name has never come up. He phoned me on March 12--my birthday--and he asked me if the Stake President had been able to introduce me to Nathan. And I explained that we had chatted for a perhaps ten or fifteen minute conversation and subsequently have had email exchanges.

What I learned from Dr. Nathan McCluskey is that he and Gina Colvin have read everything I have published about the Maori Latter-day Saints, and that they have radically different assessments of my essays. This is a point of contention between them. He agrees with me. And, the first thing he said to me is that "Gina hates you." And he explained why, even when I have praised something she had published.

Both the Stake President and a Bishop in Christchurch were aware that a group of seventeen Latter-day Saints would be attending a Sacrament Meeting in the chapel where it just happened that Nathan worships. And he had made it clear that he wanted to meet me. The Stake President made sure this happened. And then the Area President had been informed that they would make sure this happened. I was very much surprised when this happened. End of story.

I hope that you can grasp why the rubbish that flows from those hostile to me on a certain board on this very issue is for me very irritating. And Professor Peterson is also aware of just how much this has gotten to me.

http://disq.us/p/29x5c2o
According to Colvin, her husband had no idea who Midgley was when Midgley approached him, and he just assumed Midgley was a friend because of how Midgley presented himself. He learned from Colvin, AFTER he spoke with Midgley, that that was a stalking trick Midgley employed.

Also, every version of this story just implicates the LDS church leaders more in their role in violating Colvin and McCluskey’s privacy. Clearly, the New Zealand privacy laws AND the LDS church stated rules regarding privacy of membership records were both violated.

Even more despicable is Midgley’s nonsense about the private relationship between Colvin and McCluskey, however.
Midgley:

This is a point of contention between them. He agrees with me. And, the first thing he said to me is that "Gina hates you." And he explained why, even when I have praised something she had published.
The amount of disrespect he shows for Colvin by casually gossiping about her marriage and spreading his layers of lies is no surprise. Based on the way he posts, he really seems to have no respect for women as human beings. Although I am sure he would argue that he puts women “on a pedestal,” as though that indicates respect.

Dr. Peterson has urged him several times to drop it. The Professor's perseveration on this matter is unfortunate. Repeatedly counting his downvotes and continually lashing out at others beyond his usual apologetics must be alarming for those who care about him. It's like they probably want to say "forget about those strawberries Captain Queeg", but are uncertain how to say it in the gentlest manner.

Hi Moksha,

First off, let me tell you that I'm a big fan of your humor. Things get a little tense around here and elsewhere, and it's great to have someone keeping the mood light with witty comments! I was also impressed recently with your bridge-building efforts, namely, in bringing the material posted by Juliann at MormonDiscussions.com to Sic et Non for their consideration. I believe one of them referred to MormonDiscussions.com, one of the most biased pro-Mormon boards on the Internet to "Shady Acres Lite" -- or something similar. Incredible!

Anyway, about your comment here, I do have to say that I disagree with the first part of what you wrote, but I totally agree with your last sentence.

Midgley has been urged to drop his responses to critics, but not necessarily to stop needling Dr. Colvin. They like it when he does that, because she's an intellectual who left the Church, which triggers their ire and she's specifically written against the Limited Geography Theory, their most sacred doctrine.

Peterson:

And I've met both the Area President and his son. (I even had dinner with the Area President and his famlly -- and the Midgleys -- at his home in New Zealand years before he became a General Authority.) I can vouch for Professor Midgley's close relationship with the Arderns.

http://disq.us/p/29x5p5e
That’s not quite the same as vouching for Midgley’s story that the area president violated Colvin’s and McCluskey’s privacy by directing his subordinate to give out confidential information, apparently not only about a member of their congregation, but also that member’s spouse, who is no longer a member of their congregation.

Midgley needs to drop this.

Ah. The ultimate justification, in louse’s mind, for stalking, disparaging, lying about, and all around behaving like an ass.

Add in that she is a woman, and Midgley’s rage is white-hot. How dare a member of the subordinate gender not only “go missing,” but then also think that she can act like a real human?

Midge said he was wearing a name tag at the meeting. I wonder why? Perhaps the real scenario is that Midge found out through his N.Z. contacts where Dr. McCluskey went to church and arranged ahead of time to be at that ward so he could perhaps meet Dr. Colvin and Dr. McCluskey. The name tag was worn to perhaps facilitate the meeting? My guess is that if we ever were able to speak to the area president, SP and Bishop about this they would probably say that Midge initiated everything. As Lemmie points out above, Dr. McCluskey didn't know Midge from Adam when Midge introduced himself. So, Midge isn't being truthful about Dr. McCluskey wanting to meet.

So, what happens now? Is Midge going to try to break up the marriage because Dr. Colvin is no longer a latter-day saint? Midge mentions how Dr. McCluskey supposedly loves the Midge's essays and Dr. Colvin hates them. I'm sure he loves this point of contention between them.

It looks pretty creepy to me. Dr. McCluskey ought to keep his distance.

I wouldn't take hubby at face value here. I'm assuming hubby is a solid, decent guy. He was put in a sorely uncomfortable position, where this weirdo with connections to folks in his own everyday world has put a mark on his wife. He had to deliver a stern message, that his wife really ain't interested. I honestly wouldn't even put money hubby's word's being "hate", although it's possible; but I suspect Midgley is exaggerating even that.

I certainly don't believe hubby said that he "loves" Midgley's essays. He may have said positive things about them, but mostly for the sake of being diplomatic. Honestly, the most unbelievable of the package of claims being made here, is that hubby was even familiar with Midgley's essays. He might have glanced through one or two at his wife's urging if he'd ever come up on conversation because of his criticisms of her work but I'm sorry, if there's more than about 8 people on this planet who are familiar enough with Midgley's Maori-related Mopologetics to have a strong opinion it would be a miracle.

These are great points. I wouldn't put it past Midge to exaggerate each and every detail so as to make the meeting not look so creepy. Incidentally, there are a couple of meetinghouses the Midgley group could have gone to that are closer to where their ship docked in Lyttleton, if church was the only point of getting off of the ship.

https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/map ... 5850-01-01

I am assuming Dr. McCluskey goes to the ward closest to the University of Canterbury, a little further away than the Avon River ward which is closer. However, the mission was always to try and meet his prey.

I went back to Dr. Scratch's OP for this thread to remind myself where all of this started. I noticed something I hadn't before. If you check Dr. Colvin's original blog entry:

https://www.patheos.com/blogs/kiwimormo ... qus_thread

Where Mr. Midgely shows up to "flush" Gina out from hiding and confront her, several random folks showed up to support Dr. Colvin, and guess who down-voted every single well-wishing post? You guessed it. Including this one:
I’m sad to see you go Gina. I have really enjoyed your perspective and your advocacy, even though I disagree along some lines. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is worse off without you in. God bless and may you continue to find joy in the service you you give. I respect you and will miss your influence inside the Church.
Here's somebody neutral, who values Dr. Colvin's contribution to the Church but doesn't really agree with her but wishes her well, and Midgley even down-votes that!

And it gets worse, because he up-votes every negative comment toward her including this one:
Your courage seems like artifice. Move on. You don't have what it takes to be a member of the Church of Jesus Christ. I get it. Your name is Legion. There's a million of you.
^^^^^upvoted by Louis Midgley.

Maybe someone ought to remind Dr. Peterson and Kiwi57 the kind of "rubbish" that their buddy Lou upvoted against Dr. Colvin.

How about this one for a hypocritical up vote by the Professor on a post that was two and a half years ago!

Any objection that he has to using an identity that is not IRL is empty BS on his part.

Soror Luctia Nicola Petty • 2 years ago • edited
A pseudonym is my prerogative on the internet, Nicola. It's self preservation; I have no desire to be doxxed or have the vitriol of Gina's minions unleashed on me or people I care about, as has happened before. If that is cowardly, so be it. I'm sure if you try hard enough you could figure out who I am, because much of what I said applies to you as well: I know you, and used to admire you too, before you decided you knew better than everyone else, including God.

For the record, I said nothing I wouldn't say to Gina (or your) face, I just picked this as my medium because others (like you) need to hear it too. If calling out the truth is un-loving, I'm disappointed you think that to be loving is to agree with everything someone else says. Isn't that the mentality you and Gina are trying to escape from in the church??

Re: Louis Midgley Threatens to "Pay a Visit" to Gina Colvin

Self-Exiled: who exactly was this supposed relative of mine? What was his name? Where exactly did he live? And in what Ward and Stake? And what exactly was this essay he sent to Dialogue? And exactly when did this happen? This is the very first time I have ever once heard of any such Midgley relative? And one who seems to have known me, but not one I ever knew.
If there actually was such a Midgley, which I very much doubt, and he submitted something to Dialogue, then Gene England (or some subsequent editor) turned it down. And this person might have assumed that I had been involved. And that I also contacted his Stake President.

I have never once contacted a Stake President about anyone.

But of course we believe you, Midgley. Of course we do.

Midge claims "I have never once contacted a Stake President about anyone."

I have a hard time believing that one as well.

Midgley has that childish “I’m going to go tell teacher” air about him.

Technically he may be right he didn’t contact a stake president. But I’m sure he has contacted church authorities about individuals multiple times.
