Negative Reaction to Presidents Stand on Gay Marriage Predictable

(this blog is longer than usual and I apologize for taking advantage of your better nature, but I think the negative reaction of many in the black community to the President's announcement uninformed, superstitious and unChristian.)



I'd like to say I'm surprised by the negative reaction many in the black community had to the President's announcement that he favored gay marriage, but I'm not. A recent Pew study indicated that the Black Church community was more opposed to these… Continue

Homophobia and Masturbation

In my convention talk, this statement got by far the strongest response.

"Homophobia, for many people, is rooted in guilt and anxiety about their own MASTURBATORY behavior and in the shame they feel about their own bodies." It is among the strongest challenges to religionists. Try using it on someone and see how they respond. Even if they vehemently disagree, there is no doubt that they will think about it the next time they masturbate. It is the most intimate thing you can do with…

Conversations with Mother

So, my partner and I are moving to Washington, DC. We've told our family. Everything was going really well.....until.....



A few night ago I was talking with my mother. Once again, I mentioned the move. She acted like she had not heard this before. The conversation on the phone went something like this:



Mom - So you are really going to move.



Me - Yes, we are.



Mom - You are making a big mistake. I don't know why you don't understand the cost of living… Continue

Mondo Diablo Episode 291: Fundie Fantasy





To start the New Year off right, I had to start it with fstdt.com . Fundies say the Darndest Things. This episode is all about Teh Gays, because DADT was FINALLY repealed, and the fundies are all OVER that shit. This has implications. Fundies have traditionally been pro-military: My Country: Love it or Leave It. So, maybe they'll leave, or maybe they'll stop supporting the military, or maybe, JUST MAYBE,… Continue

Mondo Diablo Episode 282: Let Us Play at Exorcism!





This week, our old friend Bob Larson (whose under investigation-what conservative radio personality isn't) tries to pull off some amazingly New Age therapy on some gay men. It includes the assumption that they hate their fathers, and when that doesn't pan out, they hate their mothers. I suppose if this guy had hated his father, he would have pulled out some old men out of the audience to help with his… Continue

When Atheists Go Bad

We pride ourselves, here on Atheist Nexus (and in other atheist forums), on being intelligent, rational, educated human beings. We also, in the main, abhor those religious views which lead to racism, sexism, homophobia and other irrational prejudices.



But, as we move forward from being a 'philosophical stance' into a 'movement', should we, can we, and, if so, how can we, distinguish ourselves from atheists who have abandoned belief in God, but not irrationality and… Continue

Homophobia in the work place.

Today as a social experiment I decided to find out how homophobic or anti-gay my workplace is. To do this I went around asking people if they had heard about the anti-gay rights group in America known as 2M4M I explained how ironic it was that such a group would go with a name which sounds for lack of a better word gay. The response I got was typically, they shouldn't be allowed to get married, it sets a bad example or it's just wrong God created Adam and Eve not Adam and Steve. I responded… Continue

IS GOD SECRETLY GAY?

The Jewish-Christian divinity is depicted as rabidly homophobic in the pages of the Old Testament, in the annuls of the Vatican and in the sermons of many Christian hot heads. What can we make of this in the light of modern psychological research?



We are told in the Hebrew book of Genesis that Yahweh (or El) made man in his own image. I guess that means that this god, like his earthly son, comes with male sexual organs attached. We don't know much about what the Almighty Father does… Continue

Taco Bell Showdown!

Okay, maybe not a showdown, persay, but still awesome...



I went to Taco Bell today because I was hungry and wanted to try the new XXL Chalupa (for the record, it is fucking awesome).



Anyways, it was pretty busy. The store itself was pretty full (I was getting my food to go, though, so I wasn't looking for a seat). Luckily, there was only one guy in front of me. There was a 6-person family in front of him, but they had already started ordering when I got in line. 4 other… Continue
