I have noticed atheists coming out in support of homosexuals. Do some feel that supporting homosexuality is a necessary part of atheism ? Or, do they support homosexuality simply because religion opposes it? What is the attitude of atheists in general to homosexuality? Where homosexuality deserves support and where it should not be supported?

ECXELLENT POST...

unfortunately the "ego" will win in most cases

truth is offense for the most part, and most people would rather be wrong and strong than be right and unpopular

nafir - I've found that if I have strong personal support - I can be true to what I really believe - whether I'm right or wrong about it, is another matter.... :)

agreed

a rational comment in a frenzy of emotional posts

Let's add:

It is a violation of human rights to mutilate a child's genitals regardless of the social, cultural, or religious motivation.

Good point, Strangely enough for most people in the west it has or at least had become the norm in hospitals to the point where it wasn't even second guessed. Not sure of the current status....Although I am sure glad it isn't done at 12 years old or with a rock........

Until some particularly dense and 'holier then thou' pompous jackass decides that is the manner of gods will.

Not a rock..but how about a mouth?

Take, for example, the case of the NYC Rabbi who, after circumcising boys would suck the blood from the penis. In doing so he gave the kids herpes, which was ultimately fatal....

It made me really angry this story.

Backward, repulsive, uncivilised imbeciles.

This is what religion does. It promotes raw ignorance.

As far as I aware this rabbi has never been prosecuted. Maybe someone could confirm this.

oooohhhh my jebussss.....what world do we live in......

well that is a brisk isn't it......
