Welcome to Gay / LGBTQI Atheists & friends!

I will be taking a reduced role at Atheist Nexus as of Oct 1, 2017. I will not be moderating this group after that time, and I will be re-zeroing most of my groups and comments.

That will leave this group without a moderator. Since this group was started by a member who hasn't visited Nexus for many years, it is not possible to select or designate a moderator. Instead, I will send notification to Br. Richard that the group will be without a moderator. It will then be up to him to decide how to proceed.

Since this is a popular group, I recommend that a member start up a new group for quotations, so that the members can continue adding and reading their favorite quotes.

Thanks and happy reading!
Daniel W

If this commentary about nuns their habits can move on to the gay penguin controversy, there would be no end to the silliness.

As for hateful propagand spread by theistic demagogues, their words don't just spread hate in their communities, they serve as examples and give excuses for hate crimes against GLBTQIA people. They also provide wedge issues to unite the 'base of hate' to motivate them, give money to their political organizations, and influence elections.

I read the book ages ago. Big deal - a book describing how to get people used to they fact that they ahve gay neigbors, family members, and coworkers. Big deal - a book that helps promote homosexuality as ordinary - which is exactly what it is.

The video takes the view that it's bad for GLBTQIA to promote their cause. They are wrong. It's bad to promote hate. And that is what the video does.

Jason, you should be ashamed of yourself!

Such jokes are a very bad habit.

Thanks Marx, what a load of crap, they get crazier by the day. Why would god, who supposedly created everything have the slightest interest in who we go to bed with or how. We do have a certain status though, we are one of the last minorities it is still legal to hate.

In case you didn't see this, Rep. Sally Kern of Oklahoma has come out with a Proclamation for Morality. It seems that the real cause of the economic crisis is gay marriage, among other forms of "debauchery". Here's the link to the story: http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/sally-kerns-proclamation-morality

Wasn't the hockey mom last week resembling the same commentary? I'm curious if she's gonna lead the plight of the victimized right? Ahhh, poor republican right wing zealots!!!

I think we should all sign up to the silencing christians website and request the free book, if we get enough people to sign up and request the freebies then surely they won't have enough money left to spend on producing this rediculous drivel.

Dave P,
I'm not familiar with the book they mention, either, but I suspect you are right in thinking that they lifted from the book only that which would serve their agenda.

I'm not familiar with the book that is mentioned at the beginning but, and this is just a hunch, would I be right in thinking that the chunks the ghastly woman quotes are taken very much out of context? The bits about changing America and using the media?

Marx,
Thank you for posting the link to that christian homophobe propaganda video. It's important to know what hate people are spewing, and what their techniques involve. It's a sick piece of shit, but if we don't keep our eyes open and our minds sharp, the hatemongers will gain hard-fought ground.
