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

I hear you about Clinton's flip, and the Democratic party in general, Daniel. Some there are supportive and many aren't.

Terry Gross looks back on her "Fresh Air" interview with Hillary Clinton.  Gross expresses regret that she didn't handle it better.  She is a class act, and was handling Clinton with kid gloves while Clinton went on a mendacious attack mode,  "No, I don't think you are trying to clarify. I think you're trying to say I used to be opposed and now I'm in favor and I did it for political reasons. And that's just flat wrong. So let me just state what I feel that you are implying and repudiate it".  It would have been nice if Clinton had less hubris, and maybe said something like "I believed what I said then, but I was wrong.  I regret that those words hurt LGBT people, and I hope I have gained trust since then by being inclusive and supportive of equal rights for all". 

I remember that interview, and it kind of floored me..

Oh well.  That's done.  The next time a democratic candidate comes ringing at my phone for some dollars, they better be more straightforward about who they are and what they represent.  No scare tactics, and no more Clintons, either.

I've often felt as if I belonged on the Island of Misfit Toys.  I've always loved the gay dentist elf.

I get so pissed off at these NOM and Brian Brown types.  They try so hard to spread their hate here in the States.  But when they have essentially lost their battle (and public and monetary support), do they get a life and call it quits?  No.  They feel compelled to export their failed ideology and hate abroad.  

My major concern is that they are infiltrating countries which already treat their LGBT communities brutally.  As if these poor individuals didn't have it bad enough already.  I just grieve for what they have to endure.

Historicity and objective facts are SO twentieth cenetury.

Comment by Daniel W on December 13, 2016 at 10:29pm

Interesting that the social justice left extremists are as fact-phobic as the right wing.  I mean really, is everyone, everywhere, looney toonz?  "many of these students don't believe in either historicity or objective facts. (They denounce the latter as being a tool of the white cisheteropatriarchy.)"  Is the the Salem Witch Trial on acid?

Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer is "is totally, absolutely, 100 percent, Neil-Patrick-Harris-French-kissing-Ricky-Martin gay".    I always thought he was some sort of allegory for Jesus or something.  I do admit to having impure thoughts about Yukon Cornelius, when I was young and innocent.

Comment by Daniel W on December 13, 2016 at 9:56pm

BB, Brown just makes me tired of human beings.  That post made me wonder whatever happened to NOM founder Maggie Gallagher, the Vogon poetess who was abandoned to the planet earth because she was too unpleasant even for other members of her species.  Turns out she's become an enthusiastic Trumpophile and writes for the Daily Standard.  Go figure.
