Editorial Reviews


"God Hates Fags is an excellent way to become immersed in the issues and rhetorical arguments of a sub-cultural world of American religious and political disourse."
-Richard Hughes Seager,American Studies Journal

“Michael Cobb raises questions of both ethics and effectiveness that are deeply urgent. If you, too, want to know how the rhetorics of violence that swirl around queer people work, then read this book.”
-Janet R. Jakobsen,co-author of Love the Sin: Sexual Regulation and the Limits of Religious Tolerance

“[Cobb] begins not only in the middle of still fresh news (Matthew Shepard, Fred Phelps, Colorado’s Amendment 2, and the marriage debates), but in the middle of ordinary assumptions about rhetoric and our east elision of sexuality with race.”
-Journal of the American Academy of Religion.

“I am moved by it, as by his practiced rhetorical sensibility.”
-Journal of the American Academy of Religion

“Looks specifically at texts and spectacles about religious violence and hatred.”
-Julie Novkov,University at Albany, SUNY

God Hates Fags is an exciting, even exceptional, book, and it will contribute to an important and necessary conversation between queer studies and African American literary and cultural studies.”
-Christopher Nealon,author of Foundlings: Lesbian and Gay Historical Emotion Before Stonewall

Format: Paperback
This is not a breezy read. Michael Cobb's writing is dense and academic, but so very dead on. His research is vaste and deep and he delves into the history of the anti-gay movement with passion and detail. He makes connections that would not have been visible to any lay person. This should be read by every activist, every member of any gay, straight alliance group, every parent, every Christian, every Democrat, every Republican.... who wants a deeper and more intellectual look at the roots of violence, hatred and bigotry against the new minority.
