Overwhelmingly, anti-LGBT animus is spawned by the doctrine and given teeth by the followers of revealed religion. With no God to cash that prejudice-paycheck, as Atheists, we see fertile territory to buck the bad system by standing against those who traffic in superstition-based discrimination. On Tuesday August 7th, join Jason Frye as he covers the religio-philosophical foundations for discrimination against LGBT people, what role Atheists have in ending it, and how the secular influence has benefited the religious community to maybe not go all the way but always take the first few steps in the right direction.
Jason Frye is the LGBTQ Humanist Council Coordinator for the American Humanist Association, the President of the Humanist Associaiton of San Diego, and a Humanist Celebrant. Jason can be found on Twitter @gaytheist
