    What does LGBT stuff have to do with "Critical Thinking · Ethics · Secularism · Atheists · Secular Humanism · Agnostic · Skeptics · Philosophy · Science" ? I'm certainly not against anything that doesn't infringe on my rights It just didn't seem like the focus of the group to me.

      Separation of church and state is an LGBT issue and vice versa. Many atheists care about church-state separation issues such as the Church's interference in equal rights for LGBT people.
