I'd just let Charlie hang himself. He's a nobody and he's lost all credibility with the mainstream atheist community. The more anti-gay songs he puts up on this blog, the less we have to worry about advertising his homophobia - he's doing it for us!
I'm fine - tired but fine. Been working hard on the media and communications for the Rise of Atheism global convention to be held in Melbourne in March. Can you let your members know about it and ask them to pass it on? Registrations will be open soon.
Also working with my own group, Sunshine Coast Atheists and with another group, the Australian Secular Lobby.
Had a great all-night atheist party with some friends on the weekend, but I'm still bleary-eyed and it's Thursday already. Those heathens sure can party!
Hello. Welcome to Atheist Nexus from one ardent British atheist to another (check out My Profile and you will see).
I have been running a busy discussion group here since last September. It is called "Origins: Universe, Life, Earth, religion....etc".
Do try visiting and joining in. You’ll make lots of good friends in such a groups. Terry (Oxford).
I agree with you. I'm not having overwhelming success recruiting like-minded (non-theist) gays for our cause. Connecting dots can be confusing. We have famous gay-priests, gay-rabbis, and gay-pastors in LA involved in the gay-marriage movement (one of whom is a friend) who try to reconcile religion and gayism, and many gays buy into it. I don’t try to CONVERT people; I try to REVERT them, as they were before they started believing in gods. My goal is to get them to stop supporting religion.
Sometimes we need to create a stir! During the numerous protests and rallies in California after Prop 8 passed, I passed out flyers to protesters suggesting that they STOP supporting religion since it was religion that deprives us of the right to marry. These dumb gays give money to the Mormon and catholic churches but then get mad when the churches take away our rights. It’s a no-brainer! I am helping them to connect the dots and see the error of their ways. If you can think of any ideas please let me know :-)
Hi AK, I've been on AN for only about a week! And my first post created quite a stir as you know. Although numerous issues in this world are important to me, equality for gays is primary. The religious wackos reallly want us all dead and that makes me sad :-( And ANGRY. So i've started a group trying to get gays from supporting relgion, our oppressors. Once I get things together I will be asking for help spreading the word. Thanks for your offer to help, it is appreciated. Cheers.
Hello. Just found your post on my wall today. I havent figured out how to work this blog thing yet :-(Thankfully, you found out about charlie before he stayed at your house! What a nut! But it did answer my question, not ALL atheists support equal rights for the gays :-) Keep up the good work and thanks for your great posts.
