Welcome New Readers Interested In Secularism and LGBT Issues

My post on Kyrsten Sinema’s historic decision to run for Congress as an openly non-theistic and bisexual candidate has generated a lot of interest from new readers. I am in an airport waiting to fly home from visiting with family so I can’t do any other new blogging of substance until later tonight. In the meantime though, if you’re here because you’re interested in secularist political philosophy or philosophy of LGBT issues, I am a philosophy professor and below I’ve listed some of my favorite philosophical posts I’ve written on those topics, starting with the ones on secularism. Also, here’s a new blog called Queereka. It’s about LGBT issues and their interaction with skepticism and it’s brought to you by the Skepchicks.
