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!

Looks likeRhode Island is voting today on marraige equality.  I hope it passes.  Not a big state in population or geographic size, but every state counts.

 

Illinois is another state on the radar screen.  With both liberal  Chicago and a large conservative rural population, that one would mean a lot.

 

Also movement in Colorado on civil unions.

 

And in UK, the discussion is joined by The UK on version of the horrid Kalley Yanta.   With bigotry and partial truths and lies masquerading as information.

But we have Matt Baume on our side - so much more appealing!

The amazing thing is this isn't The Onion.  I think.

Finally, the long sought after answer, to the age old mystery.  What is the cause of homosexuality?

 

Homosexuality is caused by Juice Boxes.  As part of a government plot to make the USA a homosexual nation.  

He's sure worked up about this.

 

That probably doesn't explain Oscar Wilde, or Sir Roger Casement, or Gertrude Stein.  But maybe - Juice Boxes might be older than we think.

I'm still trying to figure out the cause of Heterosexuality.  No one is working on that one.  I think it's dioxin.

American Foundation for Equal Rights - current state of efforts for Marriage Equality.

State by state. Bit by bit. Inch by inch. Millimeter by millimeter. Two steps forward. One step back. It's gone far better than I ever remotely expected, in my lifetime. On the other hand, I thought Illinois was moving faster than it did. Once commenter noted, no word about the French counter-equality efforts. One youtube-cast can't cover everything. I was disappointed by the French demostrations, but recalling the Catholic Church still has an antigay obsession going. Some good news from one of the current "battleground states" would be welcome indeed!

Illinois Bishop:  No religious exemption to marriage quality is enough.  thinkprogress.org  No surprise there.

Carl,

My wild guess, which might very well be wrong, is there israpid growth of religion with evangelism in China.  Religion, especially Christianity, is so very, very seductive.

I have to say, in the second video about the proposed anti-discrimination law, I am rather surprised that the religious crowd who oppose this law and want to protect 'traditional values' seem to be relatively young.  It's not the usual grey-haired, elderly community you see here in the U.S.  I would have expected the younger generation to be clamoring for progress, especially in Hong Kong and China.  It was, however, nice to see a counter-protest with visible gay activists.

Meanwhile, in Hong Kong

 

Text account if accent is an issue.

Thousands of Europeans having panic attacks at thought of marriage equality. Paris no longer "city of love", more like "city of people worked up over their own stupidity".  And 1000 priests in UK claim marriage equality is the greatest threat to religious freedom since the reformation.  OK, that last is priests, what do we expect.   Well, before the reformation, the catholic theocracy wasn't exactly singing kumbaya with heretics, but todays' priests aren't going to remind us of that.

What is it about being gay that drives people into a tizzy?  I hate to say it, but such ridiculous nitwits.
