Atheist homosexuals.

It seems that most Gay / Lesbian people who grow up in a Christian family, drop the Christianity and adopt another religious or "spiritual path".

The question is why are gay people trading religion for another?

My frustration as a liberal, the first group of gay atheists [by name] I met were devotees of Ayn Rand, John Galt, Objectivism and Libertarian anti-government free market fundamentalism.

Pride parade can't be 'everything to everyone'
As ever, the perennial march for gay and lesbian rights was a colourful affair.

This year, some members of gay community find they’re not as united as they once thought

Greg McArthur

From Monday's Globe and Mail Published on Sunday, Jul. 04, 2010 6:59PM EDT Last updated on Monday, Jul. 05, 2010 8:01AM EDT

Under the canopy of a leafy tree, away from the blazing sun beating down on Church Street revellers, two gay men discover they’re not as united as they once thought.

The two friends, 63-year-olds Norm Galliford and Alek Nastajus, are asked about the controversial inclusion of the group Queers Against Israeli Apartheid in Sunday’s annual pride parade.

"Dealing with that political issue has nothing to do with being gay," Mr. Galliford says. "You can't be everything to everyone all the time."

Mr. Nastajus jumps in, pointing out that many heterosexuals supported gay rights when it wasn’t popular. Now that lesbians and gays are empowered, they have a duty to speak for people who need a voice, he says. "You're obliged to help others who need it."

This is the burden of success for Canada's homosexual community: They can get legally married across the country and are well protected by anti-discrimination policies and laws. Battles pop up from time to time, but the war is slowly reaching its end. And as a result, the soldiers are splintering off in all sorts of directions.

...

"I'm here to stand with the gay community and it's unfortunate that Middle East issues got dragged into this."

Is anyone going to "The Amazing Meeting" in Las Vegas next week?
It's a Skeptics conference - Dawkins will be there! Would love to meet any of you girlies!

Sacha,
I love this. I have it on my ipod and occasionally play it really loud in the car. So far the police haven't stopped me.

To quote the group description, "Nontheist lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people & friends."

Welcome to the group. Enjoy your stay.

Oh. If you read back enough, you might find a nifty bi-flag atheist "A". I am not sure who posted it, but it looks kind of cool.

That's like terrible, or like something, Mike Wolf.

Atheist homposexuals of all types are rare it seems. I live in Toronto, Ontario. In my five years here, I have met a total of three atheists. The rest of my friends are into non-xian religions. It can be difficult to find a match, Nerd. Keep looking and good luck.

We exist. And one of the girls I run around with is a darling young atheist, but she has two kids, so I remain single.

I did the sexuality IAT. They tell me I am moderately biased toward straight. Either I am slightly self-hating, extremely tired, or distracted by Torch Song Trilogy.

Anyone ever read the beautiful play "Jimmy the Antichrist" by Keith J. Powell? It's a wonderful story of a boy, Jimmy, who goes away to college only to return home with some startling news. Jimmy is the antichrist. The preview is definitely worth the read.
