"What the fuck is the gay agenda?"

 

Exactly.  Although, part of me wishes there actually was a gay agenda.  I don't know what, precisely, it would be, but I bet it would be fucking awesome.

I agree whole-heartedly with what this young man has to say. It really pisses me off to hear my fellow Blacks try to distance our civil rights struggle from the LGBT struggle for their equal rights. A lot of us have fallen for what a good friend of mine called the "illusion of inclusion". We have, to a large part, forgotten what it's like to be treated as less than a full citizen. I truly hope that changes!

Religion creates hypocrites. Black Americans do to socio-economic conditions are more likely to be 'afflicted' with religious beliefs than other racial groups and I am afraid this lends itself to multiple examples of poorly rationalized group-think. (ie Voting patterns, medieval values, self segregation..) I think if you were to look at the Mormon Community as an example you will see the same sort of behaviors only in a positive economic climate. In other words its not an inherent trait in our genes so don't worry. :-)

Good job! Fantastic video! I have often voiced the same questions and concerns. You have a great style, I hope to see more vids from you.

Most people who are Christians is because of tradition, that means their ancestors were forced into Christianity out of fear of being burned in the stake, tortured to death or tormented for eternity after death. Christians got away with their "fear agenda" for 2000 years, murdering and marginalizing people. Now when they can no longer murder people in the name of their god, they are desperate to control masses, so who are the ones who are scared now?

I wouldn't be surprised if Catholics end up accepting gay marriage.. Fear can control even the "good" god's followers.

Black Americans as an ethnic group have the highest percentage who are theists in this country. The demographics of religion worldwide is interesting. Poland rules the roost in Europe for adherence to theism; something like 95%.

On point. Finally, a voice that speaks about the black christians in the US. They are very predominate in the south and just as ignorant. They are very confused people when it comes to their religion and civil rights for other. Its as if they want to own the struggle and be special. They don't care about the history of their religion or of themselves. Its a real shame. I'm so glad I came to my senses. Keep talking about it. It's vital.

I don't know who this person is... I just found this video on YouTube.  One of the atheist channels I'm subscribed to gave it a thumbs-up, so I saw it on my feed.

it's the same with most south americans.  europeans came in and changed their culture, their language and their religion.  point out that your relatives would not be speaking spanish much less worshipping only one skybully and they will give you fucking "ojo" until you leave.

religion is always a buffet table.  you will find few people that are absolutely adherent to every line in their dogma, mostly because it contradicts itself in so many places but also because most faithheads have never read their holy books straight through.

I like this guy.  My gay agenda is to gain full status as a citizen (all the rights and priviledges and responsibilities) and pursue the American dream.  Sorry, there aren't any glitter or sequins involved.
