Texas GOP: Another Step Toward Theocracy?

I am used to some closed-minded rhetoric (from both sides of the aisle, sometimes) concerning matters that I find important. It's usually one or two wing-nutty individuals like Michelle Bachmann or Sarah Palin who set me off, when they spout some inane statement about subjects like homosexuality or secular government. I try not to habitually make statements dismissing an entire political… Continue

Gay? No Civil Rights For You. (Have a Problem With That?)

The story of how elderly gay couple, Clay and Harold, were treated by the County of Sonoma in California could shock even the most homophobic. Using every legal protection available to them wasn’t enough to protect them from being separated at the end of Harold’s life. Clay was forcibly removed from his home, put in a nursing home against his will; all of his possessions were taken… Continue

Atheist group offers to hold gay friendly prom

Recently, 18-year-old Constance McMillen has become the target of discrimination. She intended to go to her prom dressed in a tuxedo with her girlfriend as her date. The very religious school officials consider same-gender relations to be a sin and as such Superintendent Teresa McNeece told McMillen that she could not come with her female date. If they showed up they would be “ejected.”



McMillen contacted her local ACLU who notified the school that this kind of discrimination was… Continue

Homosexuality: Is It Inborn?

Before anyone completely flies off the handle at me, I support the Gay and Lesbian community. I have no problem with gay marriage, gay rights, or gay adoption, in fact I encourage it ESPECIALLY gay adoption. There are so many children in this world who need a family who can provide them with love and good home and I disagree with anybody who wants to deny a child a family based off something as trivial as sexual preference.



This post is basically asking others opinions of the idea… Continue

Separate still not equal: Why gays need to call it marriage

Hey, AN, here's a post I wrote yesterday at Good Reason News. Please feel free to visit me there and leave comments, if'n that's what you're into.

I've laid out my argument for gay marriage several times before, but to succinctly review what I've said, I maintain that since homosexuality is not a mental disorder, that… Continue

Gay Marriage: Why the responsibility is on us.

This is sick and it needs to stop. What am I talking about? The nasty, vile, infectious, bitter, hate-mongering that is spreading itself around our country in the form of anti-gay marriage legislation. I don't care if I sound like I am exaggerating, because this is honestly how I feel about it. As a group we clearly skew left, but we all have seen on this site conservative atheists (maybe you are conservative- hello!). However, I have never encountered anyone here who does not support gay… Continue

Local Pets Blessed At Church

DETROIT - Metro Detroit pet owners brought their animals to the Historic Trinity Lutheran Church in Detroit Sunday so they can be blessed.

Pastors and the Detroit Tigers mascot PAWS were on hand to bless all different kinds of animals including a calf and chickens.

Many churches across the country blessed animals as a tribute to St. Francis of Assissi, who is regarded as the patron saint of…

Gaytheist discussion group

Don't know whether I told the one man and a dog that read this occasional blog, but I've set up a Yahoo! discussion group called Gaytheist. Sounds a bit like "Gay theist", I know, but we brainstormed the name and this seemed the best for a bunch of gay (and gay-friendly straight) freethinkers/secularists/atheists. There's precedent, in that there are one of two groups and/or blogs with "Gaytheist" in their name. And the rhyme with "atheist" probably overcomes the suggestion of a gay God… Continue

We ain't half got it easy in Britain.

While perusing this 'ere site I've seen many posts and blogs discussing 'coming out' as an atheist. Initially I was a tad miffed by this. I knew that the situation in other parts of the world was much worse than it is here but I don't think I realised quite how ghastly it actually is.



I saw references to coming out as atheist and thought, 'You what? Coming out as gay was a big step, and came after much stalling, self-doubt and soul searching. It was a very big, and hard, step to… Continue

Which Constitution has the last say? A States or the US?

n the last week, California has seen two violations of human rights. The first being the California Supreme Court upholding Prop 8, and the other in San Diego County where a families right to assemble for a bible study has been violated. (I know Im shocked I am defending them too.. but they have that right)



So here is my question... Which Constitution has the last say? A States Constitution? or the US Constitution?



Naturally I make my argument in my blog:… Continue

Today, I am ashamed to be a Californian. Tomorrow, I get even.



Today, I am ashamed to be a Californian.

Today, our courts did not have the bravery to ensure equality for all citizens.

Today, the court made me complacent in a crime to which we will be held accountable by the next generation.

Today, the California Supreme Court returned the institution of marriage back to its stone-aged meaning, turning straight women into heifers.

Today, the court tore apart all Californian’s First… Continue

The Ultimate Outsider

As a gay person I would have felt at home in ancient Greece, but as an atheist I would have been arrested and forced to drink hemlock or something. In present day China, I would have felt at home as an atheist, but then the communist party thinks homosexuality is a Western perversion that has somehow penetrated China, an undesirable import the cultural revolution failed to eradicate. Actually, I'm not the ultimate outsider. The ultimate outsider is this: gay, atheist, black, female, overweight,… Continue

“There is a difference between civil rights and sacred rights.” – Bishop Harry Jackson

The lone dogmatist on the city council was… Continue
