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.

1.  How much did he know and when did he know it?

2.  If he is against homosexuals, why does he always wear a dress?

3.  In his experience, how do Italian men compare to Germans?

I'm bored. I've also got a Pope costume and video camera. What questions do my fellow gay atheists think the Pope needs to answer? x

Hey a quick hi to all my fellow LGBT Atheists from a new joiner!

What can we say, except "like"? Very touching. When Oregon briefly declared same gender marriage legal, my partner and I lined up and were officially married in Oregon. Unfortunately the majority of people of Oregon then had a paroxysm of bigotry and nullified all of the marriages. Im happy for the New Yorkers. One more step of progress.


Now what can we do to get Rick Perry to push similar legislation through in Texas?

Done and gladly so, skepticmom!

Tell Congress that you want to repeal the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) https://secure.aclu.org/site/Advocacy?cmd=display&page=UserActi...
