Greta Christina discusses what atheists can learn from the LGBT Movement

Posted on: October 21, 2010

I found this video (link to YouTube)to be a good lesson not only for atheists but for activists in general. Greta Christina gave a talk to the SSA conference in Ohio on the topic of “What Atheists Can Learn from the LGBT Movement.”

A couple of ideas I jotted down from the video:

  • Different methods of activism work for different people. Using different methods simultaneously allows your movement to reach more people.
  • We should debate the merits of different approaches– whether to confront or to be diplomatic– but it should not be done on the basis of demonizing the other side. Doing such demonization wastes time and energy.
