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.

Darren, that's perfect!  

 

Here is one of my favorite Bible verses, Pslams 137:9  "Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones."

 

Although,Isaiah 13:16 is pretty close:  Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished

I've done a more correct version.

Group is at 493.  That makes this a pretty big group on Nexus.

 

On another topic, this is cute - Tshirts with the design, "gay marriage killed the dinosaurs"  It's also the cause of climate change today.  Only problem is, to acknowledge that means to accept climate change is real.

She may actually be one of the things her mommy doesnt want her to learn about.  Making her ignorant wont make those identities  go away.

After all the crap they pulled over gay marriage in California, that doesn't make any sense at all.

actively gay actively Mormon on CNN

 

In mid-August he was selected, or called (as Mormons say) by local church officials to serve in an LDS Church leadership position in San Francisco.

 

Im confused.

 

Even if you’re in a gay relationship and have no interest in living all the commandments, you’re still welcome in church, by all means.”

 

What?

 

Matt Mosman, a high councilor with the San Francisco Stake, said that if Mayne were to find himself in another romantic relationship, there would be an expectation that he would step down.

I grew up fishing and hoeing foxtail out of rows of soybeans.  Girls did it too.  Same for playing horseshoes.  Yay farm life, for gender neutral activities.
