– An atheist billboard ad depicts a black slave, to decry the Bible’s condoning of slavery. The Bible quote, “Slaves, obey your master” – arguably the only truly offensive part – is the one part that doesn’t get vandalised within a day.
– The “war on women” is, in large part, a war on sex.

The demonisation of sex itself needs to end.

– It’s about time for marriage equality. I’m really looking forward to a time when gender is no more relevant than hair colour, in marriage or relationships or personal identity.
