He does so without leaning on his religious worldview which makes his arguments much more difficult to dismiss.

This book is very well written, and addresses the issue of same-sex marriage in easy-to-read, but completely covered issues and arguments from all angles.
Dorothy Addington
Turek provides good information to show that homosexual marriage is not good for the homosexual, for children, for marriage, or for America.

This small book provides an honest look at same sex marriage and the arguments supporting it. The author, Frank Turek, does his best to eliminate the emotion that normally arises at the mention of this subject and objectively examines the various arguments that are usually presented to support the idea of gay marriage. In just 120 pages of print, Turek provides 83 footnotes that document the various points he is making, so there can be no doubt that he has done his homework on the subject.

He also supplies a 5 page executive summary after the main text to review the key ideas. Turek follows that with 15 pages of "Answering Objections" as a sort of "Cliff Notes" version of the material. Regardless of which side you take on this issue, each person in America should view this material before finalizing your stand. As the author correctly points out, this issue affects the very core foundation of society and each of us needs to make our voice heard regarding the subject.

This book is very well written, and addresses the issue of same-sex marriage in easy-to-read, but completely covered issues and arguments from all angles. I found it very informative on facts on the homosexual lifestyle and it's unfortunate consequences that our education system and media do not address to the American people fully. If you are confused on the moral issues, this book addresses those with commendable clarity, and equips one to back up their faith in God's Word viewpoint with the facts of this lifestyle. I heartily recommend it to those who unsure of what they think on the issue, as well as to those who are standing up for the traditional model of marriage that has been the standard for humankind long before we were ever called on today to defend it from our upside down world culture.

Dr. Frank Turek has penned a concise, well-written "just the facts" book regarding the detrimental effects of same-sex marriage. Citing numerous data to support his findings, Turek offers readers unbiased statistical evidence supporting the claim that same-sex marriage hurts everyone, including children, the nation, and homosexuals themselves. Even for those who believe they would be unaffected by same-sex marriage, the author presents evidence to the contrary; from increased Social Security, income taxes and medical insurance premiums, to a rise in big government, just to name a few.

Perhaps the most thought-provoking statements refer to British anthropologist J.D. Unwin's study of eighty-six civilized and uncivilized cultures encompassing 5,000 years. Unwin revealed the most prosperous cultures upheld a strong marriage ethic. For those civilizations "...that abandoned this ethic, including the Roman, Babylonian, and Sumerian empires...," a complete end of their culture soon followed after liberalizing sexual practices.

While Turek's message is strong, it is presented in a straightforward, yet surprisingly compassionate manner. A fast read, the book is truly a page-turner, given his fact-based no nonsense approach to the subject. And while it is important to read the entire book, Turek does provide a helpful "Answering Objections" at the conclusion.

Overall, this book is a most important addition in the areas of homosexuality and same-sex marriage research. Dr. Turek's "Correct, Not Politically Correct, How Same-Sex Marriage Hurts Everyone" is not only enlightening, but it should serve as a wake-up call to our society as a whole.

His message is clear, "When you pass laws that weaken the family, the entire nation gets sick."

It takes a lot of courage to write on this subject. There are a lot of emotions swelling around this issue in the world today, and I have to say that Dr. Turek does a great job of articulating the facts about same-sex marriage. He doesn't come out screaming hell, fire, and brimstone. He breaks it all down into bite-size pieces on why SSM is harmful to society. He also balances his arguments with the reinforcement that while he disagrees with their practice, he cares very much for the people in the homosexual community--a very important thing to distinguish, in my opinion.

He says that if you love someone, the loving thing to do is to tell them the truth about reality. In this case, Dr. Turek explains the dangers involved with SSM--medically, politically, and personally. He cites resources such as the American College of Pediatricians, the CDC, and more to defend his case. He also takes a look at documented research from countries like Norway and Sweden where SSM has been legal for a long enough time period to give us a glimpse of what to expect.

Two other things I will mention about the book. First is that it has a helpful section titled "Answering Objections" where Dr. Turek responds to things like "Jesus said you ought not to judge", "born homosexual?", "tolerance", and "Isn't opposition to SSM opposition to love?" Second, there is a section at the end called "Executive Summary" where the book is broken down into a few pages for helpful review.

The book is only 143 pages in length, so it's great for a quick read, but it's also a well-written concentrated dose of good research and real-life stories delineated for the purpose of what is best for the people of this country.
