Put the Old Testament Biblical injunctions against homosexuality in context. These came from ancient sheepherder near pre-agricultural tribal societies that were very keen on proscribing anything that didn't promote a high birthrate for their tribe. Personally I could care less. The Bible is not my guide book and I don't think it should be anyone's ultimate guide book or final authority, not even for theists. But as intelligent, well read critical minded people we should keep the historical in perspective and not be pure literalists ourselves. There are two loving relationships that stand above all other relationships in the Bible as based on love and free choice over pre-arranged marriages or marriages for power. These are David and Jonathan, and Ruth and Naomi. That should tell us something about the cultural and political norms of marriage at the time. - Gary

That video is unbelievable.  I was just talking to my best friend about one of my exes, who was from Belfast and a 2% Catholic.  I recall her worrying about going to hell for being gay.  Her "strategy" was that when she got older, she would stop being gay and go to confession.  I'm not making this up.  It is a good thing she was cute, because if she had not been I would have dropped her on the spot for that nonsense.

Damn text editor. That should have read "Homosexuals are "More intensely loved by god than most others""

Homoexuals are "More intensely loved by go than most others" that's why the bible says they are an abomination. The aim of homosesuality is "the salvation of souls". I guess to become a priest? "The homosexual Catholic who accepts his cross... is a treasure beyond compare". "His cross will draw countless souls to christ".

The doublespeak here is beyond compare. Wow!

The offending post has been removed and the offending person is gone.  Brother Richard is aware and has removed him.  "Peace reins across the land"

CD, i can only hope that it still is and will be again.  I think the issue now is a serious lack of moderation.  Unfortunately, without that there is no way to prevent hate speech.  This LGBT group is probably the biggest Atheist-oriented LGBT group on the web, and I want it to continue to be a safe haven.

Atheist nexus is now a soap box for homophobic rapper Charlie Check'm  here.   When Infidel Guy had a brain fart and interviewed Charlie, I de-subscribed to his forum.  Charlie showed off his usual inane 4-year-old "logic" processes and homophobic word salad, but it didn't matter.  He had a forum.  Now Nexus is his forum.  The fact that almost all responses are negative doesnt change that he has a forum here.

I can't deal with Charlie Check'm "Truth be told" spewing his hate on this site. If I wanted that I would visit Westboro Baptist. I'll check back now and then, but basically Im off Nexus. Freedom of speech and all, I know... but it is what is is.  I'm grateful that probably all of the responses were pro-gay, really grateful, but 'Im not here for this kind of shit.
