Great UK news, Daniel!

I'm also glad the Denier-in-Chief isn't going to persecute us as much as his ChristoFascist buddies want.

This must be pissing off a passel of religionists:

White House: Trump will enforce LGBTQ workplace protections
BY KYLE BALLUCK - 01/31/17

[The Hill]

The White House said early Tuesday that President Trump will continue to enforce an Obama-era executive order protecting the rights of the LGBTQ community in the workplace.

“President Donald J. Trump is determined to protect the rights of all Americans, including the LGBTQ community,” said a statement from his press secretary’s office. “President Trump continues to be respectful and supportive of LGBTQ rights, just as he was throughout the election.”

The administration said Trump is proud to have been the first GOP presidential nominee to mention the LGBTQ community in his acceptance speech, “pledging then to protect the community from violence and oppression.”

Thanks for posting that, Carl. Clearly the Christo-NAZIs are on the rise. Make American straight again.

If this is true, it's very troubling to say the least.

Rumored Anti-LGBT Executive Order Coming from Trump This Week

If you recall, the Indian law against gay sex was repealed in 2009 but then reinstated by the Supreme Court in 2013 after pressure from religious groups.

I have to say that I'm VERY encouraged to see a public expression of LGBT support in an environment that hostile.  Damned good sign.

Some nice video footage of a gay pride parade in Mumbai, India, where gay sex is illegal.  (From Towleroad.)

Meet Anti-LGBTQ Extremism’s Insidious New Leader
Blog ››› January 25, 2017 4:56 PM EST ››› RACHEL PERCELAY

[Media Matters]

The extremist Christian legal giant Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) -- known for spearheading the anti-choice, anti-LGBTQ fight in state legislatures, nationally, and abroad -- just named a new president. Here’s what you need to know about ADF’s new leader, Michael Farris -- an experienced fearmongerer and fundamentalist lawyer who will lead the group's assault on LGBTQ rights.

. . . Fearmongering was an integral part of HSLDA’s success in cultivating an active and involved membership base. Under Farris’ leadership, ADF will likely ramp up its campaign to convince supporters that any gains in LGBTQ equality will lead to widespread persecution of Christians or an influx of “bathroom predators.”

Fitting with ADF’s vision of an American legal system rooted in 3rd century Christian theology, Farris has long advocated for a cultural change to shape American politics towards the far religious right. Farris also founded another organization, Generation Joshua, a 7,500 member organization that seeks to train teens to be the “next generation of Christian leaders and citizens.” While ADF already has a vast domestic and international training program to recruit lawyers and law students to provide pro-bono hours for anti-LGBTQ legal work, Farris’ work with K-12 and undergraduate students could lay the groundwork for ADF expanding its training to younger ages.

I don't know if I've posted this before, but Daniel's video on intersex people reminded me that I had this video saved to my favorites on YouTube.

Comment by The Flying Atheist on January 24, 2017 at 9:44pm

That's a very interesting video on homosexuality.  There's definately much to ponder and more to discover about this topic.  

As much as I enjoy hearing that I may be more intelligent and a specially important aspect of our society, I'm rather apprehensive to fully embrace this theory.  At least right now.  

While watching the video, I had a feeling in the back of my head that a few of his conclusions were premature or possibly a bit farfetched.  I think any person, gay or straight, can be the "glue" that holds together a family or community.  Any person, gay or straight, can be a driving empathic force.  I think empathy can be learned and obtained by anybody through social interaction and education.

I'm open to discussion.  What say you?
