"You'll find me under "B" as well.
Religions are certainly tenacious mindware, that have a strong hold on many people, queer folks included. People with an emotional and social attachment to a faith community might well want to reform…"
"Perhaps the prevalence of religious LGBT groups are due to the oppression they face for being believers, so they're trying to create a "safe space"

"Well, as it comes to LGBT-et-cetera, you'll find me under "B" ... and while I don't go spoiling for a fight, I won't shy away from one, either. Most religions I'm aware of want to treat us as undesirables if not…"
"I am also post superstitions, post gender, and have named the American Humanists Association's LGBTQ work and a chapter of the ACLU in my will. I live on a small island outside the U.S. where there are no freethinkers/atheists/humanists…"

"This is good news.
One of my fave neighbor kids is in Cub Scouts, or Boy Scouts... can't remember which. I've bought stuff to support his troup in the past, but I'm hoping that he'll get busy with other things and leave.…"
"But moderate Christians who support homosexuality don't believe Genesis is a literal scientific account. They believe it's an allegorical myth but it's funny how fundamentalists use Genesis as a justification to argue it's Adam…"
