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 Haley offers is, for the most part, outdated.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.

It was a good book, but rather narrow and introductory in its approach. A good place for those beginning to search for information from a Christian perspective.

"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.

Mike Haley's answers to these four questions in particular impressed me the most:

The author is more generous than I would be to the APA and the phychological dilemma that is homosexuality. He examines questions that since the 1970's should have been in the purview of the APA, an organization that has relinquished its responsibility in this matter to the detriment of all involved and society as a whole. Unfortunately the gay agenda has filled the vacuum with political answers to questions that should have been thoroughly studied and resolved by scientists, real scientists. Still, the author's thoughts on the subject are worthy of consideration and would contribute to understanding of the subject...unless your mind has been closed by the convenient answers supplied by those who are telling you what you want to hear.

This is a wonderful book with a lot of good references, in scripture and also with a list of places that can help. Great book for a great price. A quick read.

It's funny that in just about every area of life, we consider someone who has personal experience with a topic to be an excellent offerer of insight on that topic: The recovering alcoholic mentors the guy just into treatment, and we applaud; people who exercised their way from fatness to fitness write books and make videos about how to lose weight, and we buy them; Donald Trump tells us how to master the art of the deal, and all's right with the world.

Strange, then, the hits Mike Haley is taking here for "101 Frequently Asked Questions About Homosexuality" -- criticism obviously motivated more by the critics' political agendas than by their reading of Haley's book.

And what about the book? Haley says it grew out of actual questions he's been asked by gays and family members and friends of gays during his travels across the country. He recreates those questions and offers straightforward, informative answers that are in no way filled with the kind of invective or judgment suggested by other reviewers here -- some of whom admit they haven't even read the book.

What Haley offers here is desperately needed, rendered in the spirit of Christian love and filtered through his experience not only as a former homosexual, but as a counselor. If you're the parent of a gay child, somebody who wants to better interact with a gay coworker or someone just coming to grips with your own same-sex attractions, you will find both hope and help in these pages.
