Where do I even begin... this book has so much wrong with it I can't possibly go over everything in one review. First of all, let me give you some background information. I'm currently working on a degree in biology and I'm gay (best to be upfront with my potential bias). My areas of interest in biology include genetics, behavioral evolution, and neuroscience (I will most likely pursue a master's or phd in human genetics though). I read this book for two reasons; one being that my mother already owned the book, and also because I like to learn about other people's viewpoints. That being said, I refuse to stand by when someone spews lies that could have potentially devastating effects on other people. Let's begin.

In the beginning, I truly felt sorry for this man. His story of sexual abuse is absolutely tragic. His initial premise (found on pg. 21), that being gay is not a choice but acting on sexual impulses is a choice, is completely true. Of course, denying one's sexual desires can have very serious consequences to one's well-being, but at this point nothing Mr. Mike Haley said was false. He then went on to completely contradict himself, multiple times, arguing that people aren't born gay (specifically, claiming things like there's no genetic link). As I read further, I found that he had obviously done his research before writing this book. At the time, he was up to date on the arguments and evidence. Yet, he chose to ignore the current scientific understanding and use faulty research and quote mines. That's why he lost my sympathy. The only way to maintain a position such as his given the amount of research he had done, would be to be intellectually dishonest.

So, let me move on to a few of the scientific issues I have with this book.

I was pleasantly surprised by finding true Christian answers for these hard questions. Plus knowing now, there is more material for Christians ,out there to help with the issues we are faced with today. Knowing of Mike Haleys own personal triumph with the grace of God, encourages those of us that have family and friends in this situation. I would encourage all who are struggling with these questions to read this book. It truly was a GOD send. Charlotte

"101 Frequently Asked Questions About Homosexuality" is a primer I think most casual readers will pull down from the shelf most often to review, to consult and to share with others. It is not a politically correct book and the author does not advocate moral relativism. And I have to admit - Haley's direct counsel and firm stance on Biblical principles even startled me in a couple of places. But he is sensitive, sincere and consistent throughout.

The author made a wise decision to begin by reiterating the danger and folly of labeling (stereotyping) people and making snap judgments. No matter which "side of the issue" we are on, we shouldn't let our assumptions, biases, subjective experiences, lack of understanding or intolerance negate or blindly lead us to ignore, dismiss, attack or diminish another person just because he has sincere (but different) beliefs, values or opinions. We should speak to the other person's humanity. Genuinely make the effort to understand and relate to him or her as an individual.

Here's a breakdown of the content . . .
Answering the Basics (5 questions)
Answers for Families (19 questions)
Answers for Friends (11 questions)
Answers for the Church (8 questions)
Answers for Men (7 questions)
Answers for Women (6 questions)
Answers for Those Desiring Change (9 questions)
Answering Theology (8 questions)
Answering Culture (11 questions)
Answering the Gay Community and Agenda (10 questions)
Answering Science (5 questions)
Answering Your Need (2 questions)

Mike Haley's answers to these four questions in particular impressed me the most:
(1) To what extent should a gay father (living with another man) be involved in the lives of his children?

The author does seem to be sincere in his advice. However, he's misguided in a couple of things. First, he seems to believe that homosexuality is a psychological disorder. He even quotes older editions of the DSM. But everyone knows that the APA made the decision in the 1970s to no longer list homosexuality as a psychological disorder.

Also, I was really confused at the beginning of this book because he uses "gender identity" as a synonym for "sexual orientation". Furthermore, he believes that homosexuals suffer from GID (Gender Identity Disorder). Gender identity is 101% different from sexual orientation; not all homosexuals have GID, and not everyone with GID is homosexual.

The research that Mr. Haley offers is, for the most part, outdated. I saw where some of his sources where from as early as the 1950s. Was there nothing more recent to back his claims?

Some of his advice was just plain silly. Like when he was giving advice about how to prevent homosexuality in your sons, he basically says that little boys should shower with their dad! Umm, do I need to say anything further? However, he does not say that little girls should shower with their mothers. We call that a double standard.

I also didn't like how he presented homosexuality. He made it look like the worst thing in the world. He also seems to think that all male homosexuals are feminine and all lesbians are butch. And he makes it sound like "the horrible gays are out to get us!"

So, overall, I'm sorry I waisted my money on this book (I did read the sample first, but I was still curious). Although some parts were amusing. I gave this book 2 stars only because some parts amused me and Mr. Haley does seem sincere.
