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!

Joan, thank you for posting that video.  It was really quite moving.

It's important not to make assumptions or stereotype anyone.  Not just because it's morally wrong.  But because stereotypes close minds and prevent us from understanding and thinking, and because it's often factually wrong.  So to assume Texans are more prejudiced than, say, New Yorkers, leaves out all of the people who are more open. 

I didn't see what town the video was shot in - that might make a difference.

Also, I have mixed feeling about this sort of "gotcha" "candid-camera" journalism, faking situations to see how people react.  The same program has done similar episodes on racism.  I would feel set up and betrayed I I stepped up to help someone, and found out it was all fake.

Even so, this was moving, and enlightening.  Thanks again.

Ummm, Joan?  Pardon my French, but HOLY FUCK!  That was pretty amazing, and particularly in Texas, where withholding service is legal?

That's terrible news. I'm reading about the murder of that mayoral candidate now. So sad.

Comment by Daniel W on February 28, 2013 at 8:20pm
I don't have words to express how angry I am about that killing. I better not say more- profanity would ensue.

Now, let's keep an eye on prosecution, trial and sentence.

That's a sad story, Joan.  But fast police work:

“I came from nothing and will die with nothing but my dignity. So why not use my life for good?”
