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!

What a bowl filled full of strands of crap spaghetti.  In a nutshell, all he's doing is rehashing the old "love the sinner, hate the sin" diatribe.  I'd prefer to have these people just pray for me rather than fake-love me.  No one gets inconvenienced that way.

Please relay my thoughts to your inquisitive friend.

Pat's welcome to my thoughts and prayers... it's literally the least I can do.

So we as LGBTQ* people are simply, unremarkably accepted by a lot of society outside his conservative religious bubble? And the "problem" with that is...?

BTW, plenty of snark over in the comments at Friendly Atheist: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2017/04/03/pat-roberts...

Pray for poor Pat!

Pat Robertson Is Being Dominated By Homosexuals


Progressive Secular Humanist

"When Robertson talks about LGBT people “dominating” the cultural shift, he’s really referring to the fact that people no longer have an automatic revulsion to them. In his world, acting on one’s homosexuality is an unforgivable sin. Outside his bubble, though, more and more people don’t give a damn. Live and let live. Don’t worry what other people do in the privacy of their bedrooms." [Friendly Atheist - Hemant Mehta]


Mehta is correct. Robertson is angry that gays and lesbians are no longer ignored and/or stigmatized by mainstream media, and are now often portrayed with the simple dignity and respect all people deserve.


Bottom line: For Robertson, and the conservative Christian worldview he represents, being gay is immoral. The irony, of course, is that the only immorality here is Robertson’s ugly and mean-spirited anti-gay rhetoric.

Richard Nixon discussing All In The Family and homosexuality in the early 1970s.

"You see, homosexuality, immorality in general...These are the enemies of strong societies.  That's why the Communists and the left-wingers are pushing it.  They're trying to destroy us."  

Decades later we're still hearing the same ridiculous verbiage.  These folks are a one pony show.

GC, ordinarily I'd say go to Kamar-Taj and see if you can enlist the help of The Ancient One or Kaecilius... but we weren't part of that casting call. [chuckle]

No weather machine, no demons... they never come when I call... where are those fabulous powers we've been promised? :)
