Apologetical attack dog Dan Peterson frequents the Nacle when BYU is out of session, or there are no anti-mormons elsewhere to be found. But Lou Midgley is a regular novelty. So, Lou gets some airtime at (where else?), the Bloggernacle's own Rush Limbaugh Megadittohead, who is filled with love for his fellow man. Ah, yes, contention is of who? Not that there could possibly be any negative repurcussions of calling anyone who doesn't agree with you an apostate. Nah. Hmmm. Maybe Lou does fondue with the Tanners after all.

Update: Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, rehashed all over again for your inconvenience.

I was chatting with a wise friend and we decided that Lou Midgely Mormonism's version of Preparation H -- Sort of embarrassing and something to hide in your cupboard; but nice to have available when you need to deal with a pain in the ass.

RT is not a pain in the ass so it would have been better to keep that embarrassing stuff (Lou/PrepH) hidden in the cupboard in this case.

Midgley was invited over for fondue with the Tanners back in 1997, but he was shown the door by Jerald Tanner for being a rude dinner guest. He hasn't been invited back.

Proof you snark on both sides ... just given the chance ;)

I don't know about this Midgely fellow, but the incredible righteousness and spiritual insight of that Redelfs fellow is a total turn-on. What I wouldn't do to Redelfs with a pot of hot fondue.... Yum.

Wow, that Midgley letter to the Tanners cited in comment #2 was beyond belief. What an AH! Obviously a self loathing repressed homosexual.

Glad to see you went ahead with the sex reassignment surgery and I hope things are better for you now.

I can see the headline now: "Louis Midgley Launches Crusade Against New York City Hot Dog Vendors--Political Science Professor Sickened by Blatant Pushing of 'Homo Agenda' by Franfurter Fellows"

steve em and antiprude, the way you two constantly obsess about other's seemingly repressed homosexuality, it seems pretty obvious you two are projecting. time for you two to move to mass and get married.

Whatever our disagreements with Redelfs may be, he deserves credit for this bit of brilliance from his "About the Author" page: "I like to buy my clothes online from Cabela's."

That's the best thing I've ever read in the bloggernacle.

While Prudence Brown and I have sparred before, and I can understand your confusion, for the record, I never said Prudence was homosexual, repressed or otherwise, but transsexual.

Midgley definitely comes off as a self loathing repressed homosexual in his rather silly attack against Quinn.

Just to add a little context, for any who might be interested....The book that Midgley laughably calls Quinn's "sex book" was described by Ron Walker, David Whittaker, and James Allen (BYU Profs, all) as "an important book," "Quinn's best," and significant because it "considered Mormonism's wider American context, had new information and views, and treated a topic that was once taboo." All of which simply illuminates just how far out Midgley is, even among faithful, believing scholars. Quotes are from "Mormon History" p. 86
