"Ruth, I remember thinking at the time, that's a whole crazy quilt of cognitive dissonance. I wonder whatever happened to him.
BB, I think Im going to ignore apocalyptic commentaries that I agree with, for a while. I guess it's…"
"Talk about cognitive dissonance -"a gay midwest blue-eyed blond convert to Islam"!
That Pierce quote seems apt, excepting that "destructive policies" is a couple of orders of magnitude of an understatement."
"If Bill Donohue wants to trade punches with Dan Barker and Annie Laurie, he's going to wish he hadn't. I know them both, and they are lovely people, decent and polite ... and They Don't Back Down from ANYONE."
"Im guessing this is real news. There's a lot of fake stuff out there, so who knows? Plus, the Spectator is conservative, so this might be as real as Fox news.
"How was a gay Islamist porn star able to penetrate Germany’s…"
"As always, I like to hear about what is happening, and how we can respond to it. We have challenges, but we are not helpless. There is a lot to worry about there and I can't deny that I feel it too. Historical precedents suggest…"
"Loren - terrifying is the word. And if you want to see something even more terrifying, get a load of what Steve Bannon said a couple of years back in a speech to the Vatican:
I posted this last week, but I don't remember exactly where."
Claire - I have several projects going, and an area I am pursuing is the LGBT Athiest community. Do you have any books, publications, or research to recommend. Is there a bibliography out there somewhere? I am especially interested in the process of coming out, and how that can be used for all atheists
Hi Claire! I'm Kris - I host the Aussie/Kiwi group here on Nexus. I'm also the media and communications consultant for the forthcoming "Rise of Atheism" Global Atheist Convention to be held in Melbourne in March 2010. The Convention is being organized jointly by Atheist Alliance International and the Atheist Foundation of Australia.
I wonder if you could let your members know that tickets for the convention are now available online at the Convention website. We are expecting nearly 3,000 delegates, so this convention is going to be huge.
Confirmed speakers include: Richard Dawkins, AC Grayling, PZ Myers, Dan Barker, Peter Singer, Taslima Nasrin and many more.
Anything you can do to help us get the word out would be greatly appreciated.
I'm wondering if you have any thoughts on consolidating the A|N GLBTQ groups. Doesn't seem to be a lot of difference among them, some people are in at least 2 of the groups. Might be easier if we somehow combined them. Most likely that would involve leaving 2 groups in place but notices that all new postings should go to the remaining group. What do you think? Youir group actually has the largest # of members, so maybe they should consolidate with Gay Atheists. What do you think?
Hi. I just recently joined your group and this site, really. There are some great discussions going on which is refreshing living in a traditional, Catholic house. Well just wanted to say hello and HAPPY ASH WEDNESDAY! haha
Good to see that youre the 1st to create Gay atheists group. I am glad I did my group search and am hoping you will let me join the group. I also created a group of my own for people with HIV. I am hoping it will be approved by the A/N creator. And if it does, then I just hope we get members joining in! I would hate to be the only one, I know there are more people like me out there. But perhaps it is a matter of bravery and courage. I look forward to heartfelt feedbacks from A/N members!
