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.

The marriage equality issue seems to have brought out a seamy underside of intolerance in France.  Not that I should be surprised - intolerance is everywhere, some places more than others.  The US is no exception, with a majority of states having institutionalized inequality into their constitutions.

Still if he is so upset, that a couple of LGBTI people who love one another and support one another can marry and raise children with love and support, that he puts a bullet through his brain, I don't feel bad about the so-called loss.

I feel more sorrow for people such as these girls than I do for those biggots.  Watch.

 know it's a bit sad but I hope he is the first Leming.  Of course it would work out much less gory if they found a cliff to use.

French far-right activist man commits suicide at Notre Dame cathedral to protest against marriage equality.

I thought suicide was a mortal sin?

All I can think is, he's saying "I'll show them!"

A beautiful smack in the gob for the offensive French Catholics.  They have for years had the opinion that France had to cater to their every whim.  As a Limey I don't have a very high opinion of the Froggies but with this move they have jumped a long way up in my opinion. It appears that the European Common Market has for the first time in history made a positive move but of course by accident. 

England has only ever been a half way participant it the EEC folly and if they would drop out it would almost be a good moove to go home, but of course I could never afford to live there.  Oh well I guess I am stuck in the Bible Belt.  Could be worse.

It's a breath of fresh air that the NYC Cops have decided that that was a hate crime.  With the reports they had no other opton.

He sounds interesting! I almost want to protect him from the superficiality of American gay culture.

The Prince sounds like a really cool guy.  I wouldn't mind going out on the town with him.
