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.

Reminds me   of those ghastly commercials Sally Struthers used to do for one of those fake "adopt-a-third-world-child" orgs.  95% of the money went to administration and overhead.

GAG me!

Courtesy of goodasyou.org, Focus on the Family is running a fundraising ad that presents an opportunity no one should miss out on. (Or as Winston Churchill would say, out on which no one should miss.)
While normally a $40 donation will (somehow) help save a god-created-and-blessed heterosexual relationship, now they're kindly offering a twofer! Yes, that same $40 donation will now (somehow) help save not one but two god-blah-blah-blah heterosexual relationships. This reminds me of collections that were constantly taken up in my Catholic grade school. Every $5.00 collected would buy a "pagan baby." Such bargains these Christians offer!

What I never understood was how many guys I skated with professionally were gay AND Catholic.  (I quit going to church when the celebrity suck-up minister told me I was going to go to hell if I went into showbiz. I was slowly sliding away from that Bapturd church, anyway, so it was no big loss.) 

Why would anyone be loyal to an ideology that taught them, starting in elementary school, that they were dreadful sinners who didn't deserve to live?

You should have seen them backstage crossing themselves when the overture began....  I did NOT laugh; I loved them too much to hurt their feelings.  But they puzzled me.

What Catholics or any of them don't realise is that in a different time and place they could be certified as in need of medical supervision. Pathological delusion is not going to be considered socially acceptable indefinitely.

Bertold, those Catholics are so clueless.  They claim that we mock their video because we are threatened by its message and that we're trying to silence them.  They have no f-ing idea that we're totally making fun of them.  They have no idea that they themselves are entirely responsible for their own decline and irrelevance.  We're not silencing them, they're voices are fewer.

So, the Catholics are actually proud of their skankily scurrilous video. 

Per Catholic Vote's latest missive:

Left-wing websites didn't expect this from the Catholics. Speak the truth with love? What??? Catholics are supposed to be bigots and full of hate. 


Our video has logged over 1.3 million views in 10 days. Seeing the power of our message, LGBT activists have now mounted a massive campaign to mock, ridicule, and shame us. They have used every curse word (and more!) to attack us personally. They threatened our staff with phone calls. And now some are openly calling for the persecution of Christians.

In sum, they are proving our point.

With the Supreme Court effectively eliminating marriage from our civil law, LGBT activists are now out to eliminate all dissent. And they have orchestrated an online mob to go after the video, and anyone who likes it.

Our video is a huge threat, because it calls for tolerance and respect for everyone. For example, here are some comments from viewers in support of our video:

“I don't see what all the fuss is about... They are just saying that they're not for gay marriage...I'm fine with people having different opinions.”

“...it's their opinions and we should respect it...”

“...the whole point is that it is okay for people to disagree with one another...


But is it really ok to disagree?

Our video contained a simple message: Everyone has a right to express their opinion on marriage. Defenders of natural marriage should not be shunned, shamed, or labeled as bigots. If you believe in marriage, you are not a bigot, and you deserve to be respected.

But many LGBT activists don't want more debate. They want to people like you and me to shut up. They want you to be afraid to speak out.

Religion tells you how YOU should behave.  In the US, that does NOT mean that you then get to tell everyone else how to behave.  THAT is Freedom OF and FROM Religion.

This is the message that most believers who disparage gay rights have yet to get.
