I'm not surprised either.

One of the returned missionaries that I know was treated badly by the apologists online, is part of a very well-connected LDS family .. and had significant (though quiet) family support.

I expect there's been quite a ripple effect.

I think it's important for the gentle reader to be reminded of the Peckerhead's history with harassing people online, over the phone, and in person. Please read this write up on the Peckerhead by Mormon Curtain:

Wow!! I had no idea that Midgley actually showed up and protested the candlelight vigil for Lynne Whitesides. Midgley is no better than those evil creeps from the Westboro Baptist church. Maybe Gina Colvin should seriously consider getting a concealed weapon’s permit (or whatever is legal in New Zealand).

From the link:

“Let’s review, shall we?

1) Midgley shows up at a candlelight vigil for Lynne Whitesides, berating people, calling them children of Satan, and putting some in tears. I’m not an uncritical fan of the so-called September Six, but this is just bizarre.

2) Midgley attends the 25th anniversary of Signature Books at the University of Utah, talking loudly during the presentations, getting many glares and hushes from others. After the event he goes over to a table displaying Signature’s titles and loudly proclaims, “pathetic!”

3) While researching on (guess what?) Fawn Brodie at the University of Utah archives, Midgley repeatedly yells out phrases like, “I don’t believe it!” and “My goodness!” to no one in particular, scaring the crap out of the other patrons who think he’s a crazy man.

4) Midgley quizzes Grant Palmer during Palmer’s presentation of his book at Sam Weller’s, but doesn’t address the topics in the book. Instead, Midgley asks why Palmer wasn’t well liked on his mission to New Zealand, and questions Palmer’s faithfulness based on his popularity among the Maori.

5) Midgley calls up my friend’s 70 year-old mother (who, until I get his permission, will remain anonymous) and hounds her and berates her about her son’s involvement with Signature Books. He keeps harrassing her for information so he can get some dirt on her son.”

Sometimes I honestly wonder what goes in Midgley’s head.

Please try a bit harder not to bring the absurd and insulting false opinions of Professor Peterson and me to sic et non from your own miserable nasty false message board.

However, I did come to this BY COMMON CONSENT blog as an interested observer, and was glad to see a different side of Dr. M that I could appreciate.

And then ... well, you know how that turned out.
I just read the 2007 thread from the start. I almost gained some sympathy for the old louse. Then he revealed his true self. In one post he included “gone missing” and “spit or swallow.”

My, my I have never heard something like this example of likening acceptance of the LDS version of the gospel to ones style of giving fellatio. Very much a example of brutish misogyny if every there was one.

Here's another good primer on the peckerhead:

http://mormoncurtain.infymus.com/topic_ ... dgley.html

This really underscores just how creepy and serious Lounatic Midgley took his mission to confront Ms. Colvin at her place of worship. The Lounatic is a seriously disturbed and angry little morgbot.

The little peckerhead continues to moan and spin the events surrounding his reality check on Ms. Colvin's blog:

"I was right there and got trashed by incompetent jerks. And Gina Colvin could have easily put a stop to it my simply mentioning that Nathan McCluskey, her husband, want to and did meet me and we have become friends."

This astoundingly dumb manchild can't wrap reality around his walnut-sized brain in that stalking a woman, trashing her constantly, travelling across the world to pull an 'assault Sandra Tanner' on her, attempting to destabilize her marriage, and then showing up on her blog acting like an innocent idiot.

BYU professor. Mormon priesthood holder. Temple worthy. Peckerhead.

Midgley revisits his stalking of Colvin once again.

Louis Midgley Moksha 2 hours ago

Moksha: You end this comment by claiming that I am "the one who is always lashing out and putting those [with] you disagree down."

Really? Always? Not even a tiny bit of overstatement there? Well, of course, I was the one who was busy three months ago lashing out at Gina Colvin on her own Patheos blog entitled "Kiwi Mormon." You were right there witnessing me lashing out at her, were you not? I had to be lashing out at her and those seeking to defend me from my "creepy stalker" antics in Christchurch, New Zealand. And your own very friendly, nice, fun-loving, deeply Christian people were there defending her from my typical "lashing out."

Well, I had to be lashing out and putting down those with whom I happen to disagree, since that is what you claim I always do.

https://www.patheos.com/blogs/danpeters ... 5009154550
Well, yes, Midgley, that’s exactly what you do. Glad you finally see the light. Will there be less stalking and lashing out going forward?

Just a quick reminder of why people warned Colvin about Midgley. First,
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.”
After people warned Colvin about his less than honorable intentions, the denial:
Midgley:

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

Then, the lashing out:
Instead, 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?
indeed. What is “creepy” about mocking her?

Midgley: “You end this comment by claiming that I am "the one who is always lashing out and putting those [with] you disagree down." Really? Always? Not even a tiny bit of overstatement there?“

This is probably an overstatement, since after the Dr. Colvin incident I suspect you will only do the put downs in a protected environment. You have done so innumerable times with me on this blog.

In the mother of all oblivious whoppers this exchange just occurred ref a comment gemli made on Mr. Peterson's vanity blog:

"DanielPeterson Mod > gemli

I don't have the slightest problem with the existence of differing beliefs.

Does anybody else here have a problem?

Is there anybody here -- besides gemli, of course -- who seeks out people who hold different views in order to contradict them?"

Where does one start with this? Posting this with a straight face while indirectly funding a worldwide missionary program to contradict closely held beliefs is absolutely the pinnacle of sheer stupidity. Right on cue Mr. Peterson's lap dog chimes in with an equally oblivious and stupid statement:

"Louis Midgley > DanielPeterson

Professor Peterson: I am not aware of a faithful Latter-day Saint who does such a thing. Instead, we seek common ground, which is not hard to find."

It's almost as if the Internet doesn't exist to these solipsists and they're unaware their adventures in mopologetics haven't been documented for decades. Good Lord.

“Is there anybody here -- besides gemli, of course -- who seeks out people who hold different views in order to contradict them?"

“We seek common ground .”

Welp. Not a day later the louney little peckerhead naturally contradicts himself and his handler:

“Louis Midgley > DanielPeterson
When one is facing an ideology, one ought to be suspicious. Think of Rodney Meldrum. I think that the first time Professor Peterson knew that I existed, I was "debating" in front of a huge audience someone then at Brigham Young University who was teaching a truly bizarre conspiracy theory about London and New York bankers who were busy using communism to take over the entire world. If there had been a vote that evening, I am sure I would have lost. But I published a few things and this fellow left Brigham Young University and went on the hustings with the Reverend Moon, of all people.“

I post this example on this thread just to underscore the mopologists’ duplicitous behavior and penchant for seeking out confrontations.

In seeking “common ground” the ultra-asshole Louis “peckerhead” Midgley attacks fellow faithful Mormon Sledge when he made some rather innocuous comment about LDS treatment of Black people with this non confrontational post:

“Louis Midgley > DanielPeterson

I happen to have been around well over fifty years ago and I very much longed for Black people being able to be Endowed and hence for Black men to be ordained to the Priesthood. Sludge is looking for statements that support his hatred. Does he have an agenda? Are we permitted to know exactly what it is? Or are we forced to guess?”

Notice how he uses his typical tactics of turning the user’s handle into an insult, sets ups a straw man, and then openly agitates the user hoping to induce an impatient reaction. GEE, I CAN’T UNDERSTAND WHY SOMEONE WHO WAS STALKED HALF A WORLD AWAY DIDN’T WANT TO MEET HIM IF THIS IS HOW HE TREATS HIS OWN KIND.

Midgley might be thinking about the Church's general missionary tactic of finding and building upon common beliefs with investigators. Let's not confuse sincerely "seeking" common ground, however, with a tactic of using a pretense of "seeking common ground" as just a way to better advance one's plan for unilateral dominance.

But, further, let's not confuse any tactic the Mopologists such as Migdely have ever used, with either truly seeking common ground, or using the tactic of "seeking common ground," if only as a pretense to better advance a plan for dominance. The apologists are so confrontational that they don't even know when to be nice temporarily in order to advance their agenda.

You know that secular Russian Jew Midgley always speaks of as his friend, and contrasts with people like Gemli? I'll bet you that guy is the type who genuinely seeks common ground with people. I would bet my last dollar, that the two of them are friends because the Russian Jew was respectful to Midgley first, is a good listener, and knows how to brush off an outburst or two and carefully advance a disagreement. It's not because Midgely was first polite and diplomatic with the Russian Jew.
Lou Midgley 08/20/2020: "...meat wad," and "cockroach" are pithy descriptions of human beings used by gemli? They were not fashioned by Professor Peterson.

LM 11/23/2018: one can explain away the soul of human beings...as...a Meat Unit, to use Professor Peterson's clever derogatory description of gemli's ideology.

I wonder how those who were not ardent apologists coped with the meetings at the Maxwell prior to the big change?

By my count that was at minimum one hundred sustaining votes showing what his real feelings were.

I’m tired of hearing people like Midgley, and Peterson back track and telling the story on how they “longed for a change” when in fact they are just expressing their racism or passive cowardice first with not speaking up at the time, and now by trying to cover their guilt with platitudes, and still not saying how wrong it originally was.

It's definitely disingenuous, how they now imply how they probably felt back then. My guess is they probably felt some relief in not being viewed as so overtly racist by the public any longer. But longing in the sense of correcting a wrong? No, they probably didn't even know any African Americans and certainly didn't view the racial ban as wrong. It was supposedly what God wanted and they never want to change God's mind now and certainly didn't back then. Wanting or longing the brethren to change is against what the brethren push the members to do. They want unwavering obedience and so longing for change isn't in the cards.

Thank you for bringing that quote to our attention, Dr. LOD. I'm fairly certain he's been writing and debating for over 50 years as well. If he truly felt that way, surely it's in print, somewhere? A journal entry would at least count for something, if nothing else.
