LGBTQI atheists, nontheists, and friends

Nontheist lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people & friends.

Latest Activity: Nov 16

Forum is now open for comments only, due to limited moderation.

The original creator has been absent 8 years.  She may no longer identify as Lesbian or as Atheist, but could still experience discrimination due to being listed as creator of this group.  This group does come up on internet search with this person, and her photo photo, as group creator.  We live in era when discrimination can be expected to increase on many fronts.

I moderated since that time. On several occasions, I requested that another member moderate, but was unable to find a volunteer who would actively moderate content.

Please be aware, posts left active on this group, especially discussion forum, can be hazardous to members, even ones who have been gone for many years.  In most states and countries, there is no protection for LGBT people regarding employment, housing, or employment.  The same is true regarding atheists.  Some members may not even be aware of discrimination, and may not be aware that their old posts and images are still there to come back and haunt them.  Posts and the membership list are visible on internet searches.

There has been at least one case of a member of Atheist Nexus experiencing employment discrimination due to their membership. 

Another member of Atheist Nexus was murdered in India, in 2011 (Ajita Kamal).  As far as I can tell, the perpetrator and motive were never found, but Kamal was a known atheist, and known atheists are frequently targeted for brutal killings in South Asia.

Any member who posts, without having their own photo or name on their screen name and avatar, is expressing implied agreement, by default, about the importance of privacy, even on the internet.

A controversial group needs an active moderator, who will look out for the needs and safety of the members, as much as possible in such a forum.

As has recently been done, posts on Atheist Nexus are subject to screenshots.  They are also be subject to internet search.

I recommend that interested members start a new LGBT group, so that there is no issue with long absent group creator and no longer having a moderator.  Until that time, this group is open for a rolling comment wall.  I am not able to expire comments without closing the entire comment page, due to host program (Ning) limitations on moderation.

No need to have pork as a side.  One of the best meals I ever had was in Puerto Vallarta.  Jumbo shrimp, stuffed with ham, wrapped in bacon, and sauteed in butter and garlic.  An abundance of sin conveniently provided in one small bite.

The reason Bill Donahue sounds so irrational is because he's defending the bible and religion which are, of course, irrational. This is his job, his livelihood.  I wish the media would stop giving people like him a platform.  He has nothing valid or reasonable to offer.

  • >Could we throw in a side of pulled pork?

Depends on who's pork you want to pull I guess. (:-)

As for "leaders" like Donahue and his ilk, I'm not convinced they're actually ignorant enough to truly believe the shit they spew. They just know it's effective in rousing the rabble who are sufficiently ignorant to be moved unto the depths of their wallets.

Love the bacon-wrapped shrimp bit!  Could we throw in a side of pulled pork?

As for Donohue, I'm not convinced he lives on the same planet we do, possibly not even the same reality.  That man's rigidity is such that he can't think outside of catholic dogma and doctrine.  His position regarding marriage as legitimizing reproduction is made even worse by the blunt fact of overpopulation of this planet and the resulting impact that has on economies and ecologies.

Donohue isn't just stupid; he's criminally stupid.

Here's Bill Donahue explaining that marriage is not about love:
